Who Do You Believe In?

[Tupac Talking] 
Heavenly Father 
Hear a nigga down here 
Before I go to sleep 
Who do you believe in? 
Who do you believe in? 

I see mothers in black crying 
Brothers in packs dying 
Plus everybody's high 
Too doped up to ask why 
Watching our on downfall, witness the end 
It's like we don't believe in God cause we living in sin 
I asked my homie on the block why he strapped 
He laughed 
Pointed his pistol as the cop car passed and blast 
It's just another murder 
Nobody mourns no more 
My teardrops getting bigger 
But can't figure what I'm crying for 
Is it the miniature caskets? 
Little babies 
Victims of a stray, from drug dealers gone crazy 
Maybe its just the drugs 
Visions of how the block was 
Crack came and it was strange how it rocked us 
Perhaps the underlying facts they hide 
Explain genocide 
It's when we ride on our own kind 
What is it we all fear? 
Reflections in the mirror 
We can't escape fate 
The end is getting nearer 

[Chorus] 2x 
Who do you believe in? 
I put my faith in God 
Blessed and still breathing 
And even though it's hard 
That's who I believe in 
Before I'm leaving 
I'm asking the grieving 
Who do you believe in? 

Can't close my eyes cause all I see is terror 
I hate the man in the mirror 
Cause his reflection makes the pain turn realer 
Times of Armageddon 
Murder in mass amounts 
In this society where only getting the cash counts 
I started out as a beginner 
Entered the criminal lifestyle became a sinner 
I make my money and vacate, evade prison 
Went from the chosen one to outcast, unforgiven 
And all the Hennessey and weed, can't hide 
The pain I feel inside 
You know 
It's like I'm living just to die 
I fall on my knees and beg for mercy 
Not knowing if I'm worthy 
Living life thinking no man can hurt me 
So I'm asking 
Before I lay me down to sleep 
Before you judge me, look at all the shit you did to me 
My misery 
I rose up from the slums 
Made it out the flames 
In my search for fame 
Will I change? 
And I'm asking 

[Chorus] x2 

Faith in Allah, believe in me, and it's plastic 
Cause so far I done witnessed to many dead niggas in caskets 
With they chest plates stretched like elastic 
And what's worse I'm on front line 
Holding down camp still mashing 
Heard my cousin 
One of the old heads from the block 
Just came home October of 95 
Back in Yardville stuck with a three to five 
If he don't act up 
Now he realize 
If you don't stay wise 
Then in this game you fucked 
Talk to my baby girl 
Give me the word on what she heard 
One of the grimmies is snitching 
Diming, a stool pigeon 
I talked to him 
He said he didn't 
My man said he did, in fact he sure 
Cause he just came home off a bid 

[Chorus] x2 

Who do you believe in? 
Is it Buddah, Jehova 
Or Jah? Or Allah? 
Is it Jesus? Is it God? 
Or is just yourself? 
Definitely, not to be imposed 
Even a demon 
Cause this is the joy of the movement 
Men, to believe in yourselves 
But for sure, the higher power 
Resides only to ride through the heart of the true 
From the soul, of the man 
For truth never has an alibi 
In the poetry or in this round 
That's what pulls our words together 
Just to understand 
That every man is his own man 
And only man can satisfy the man 
Only the soul of the man 
The feelings of the man 
The for realness of the man 
You can't shake the man when you feel the man 
You know the man 
And you gotta call yourself because you are that man

Who do you believe in? (I put my faith in God) 
Put my faith in God, and 
Blessed and still breathing 
Even though it's hard (who do you believe in?) 
That's who I believe in (even though it's hard) 
Before I'm leaving 
I'm asking the grieving (who do you believe in?) 
Who do you believe in? 
Who do you? (blessed and still breathing) 
Oh, blessed (before I'm leaving, I'm asking the grieving) 
Oh, blessed (who do you believe in?)
