Angel of God

Angel of God, I pray to you right now, I just gotta know
If there really ain’t no other way left for us to go
My sister’s comin’ home, 3-o’clock in the morn’
It's been like this ever since the day my little niece was born
And it doesn’t really help that her husband likes to drink
And without, even once, ever stopping to think
That the bottle only makes it harder for his wife
To go out and make sure they live a quality life
And all the while, all the bills, they just won't stop going up
Now I don’t know about you, but this situation is f**ked
It's like these *****es don’t care that their greed and their lust
Is causing people to go around naked and hungry; it’s just
Not fair, all the kids are growin’ old before their time
And it’s all I can do to sit here and write down this rhyme…

[Chorus]
And when I'm gone, just carry on, don't mourn
Rejoice every time you hear the sound of my voice
Just know that I'm looking down on you smiling
And I didn't feel a thing, So baby don't feel no pain
Just smile back

(2x)

Angel of God, is what I’m doing right? I just gotta know
I’m out here on the streets selling drugs to 13-year olds
…Stupid question, I know, but what else can I do?
My sister went and hung herself, but her baby still needs some food
Plus her daddy disappeared in the middle of the night
And though I know what I’m doing to get by just isn’t right,
My hands are tied; I can’t let this little baby starve as well
Don’t care what happens to me now, I know I’m goin’ to hell
The end will never justify the means, no exception
My crimes can never be justified by my intentions
‘Cuz to raise my little girl, I’ve ruined innocent lives,
Manipulated the cops; I’ve even gone and made some more bribes
…But if nothing else, I’ll just find solace in one thing
My little girl will grow up, and one day she’s gonna sing…

[Chorus]
And when I'm gone, just carry on, don't mourn
Rejoice every time you hear the sound of my voice
Just know that I'm looking down on you smiling
And I didn't feel a thing, So baby don't feel no pain
Just smile back

(2x)

Angel of God, I’m done for; I’m sitting in my cell
Waiting for my moment, Oh Lord, I hope it turns out well
It went down the other night, I got busted with all my friends
Caught in the act; and now, see how the song finally ends
Guilty as charged, of selling smack to children on the streets
And so we’ve all been sentenced to die in our sleep
Got no regrets; I just did what I had to as a dad
Instead of crying for mercy, I actually feel glad
My baby’s off to high school now, and she's living with my mates
In the big city; and no, I don’t feel any hate
Towards the cops, I know they only followed their orders
And about my girl? Well, I only have this one wish for her…
As I throw my smoke on the ground and I step on the embers,
I pray that during the night, somehow, she’ll stop and remember...

[Chorus/Outro]
And when I'm gone, just carry on, don't mourn
Rejoice every time you hear the sound of my voice
Just know that I'm looking down on you smiling
And I didn't feel a thing, So baby don't feel no pain
Just smile back

(2x)

Note: I wrote this song while listening to the instrumental of When I'm Gone by Eminem... I intended to sample the beat and the chorus for this one. :)

Angeldust Sonnet

It's barely been a month but I met an angel right here
And I know this **** is whacked but I can feel it in the air
She could be the one to take out the bullets stuck in my chest
Never thought I'd see the day, but then I guess I must be blessed
To have found this girl, so perfect I can't even say her name
Could it possibly be that it's my turn to finally play the game?
Am I really meant to go this route or am I only dreaming?
Will I slice my finger open so that I can watch it bleed, and
Wake up in my bed to find that I was just tripping on E
Thrashing around like those crackheads that we all see on TV?
...But I don't really give a **** if I could only see your face
'Cuz that enchanting smile is something that I'm never gonna erase...

Like, hell, maybe you'll think that I've flipped out and gone insane
And that my senses and intelligence have all gone down the drain
But **** it, it don't matter to me, I don't really care
The world could go explode; all that matters is that you're there
'Cuz the sight of your face is all that I need to hit cloud nine
As long as you're around, shorty, I know that I'mma be just fine
Just stay with me right here, if only for just a while
'Cuz just between you and me...? You're the only reason I smile
And being beside you, it's like being on a high,
It's the best feeling in the world, it's like I'm flying in the sky
No, wait, don't go yet! Give me just a bit more time
At least give me the opportunity to treat you to this rhyme...

I'm only half of who I should be when you're not here by my side
When you're gone, can't find it in myself to stay on for the ride
It's like, I gave you half of my soul; when you're away
...I don't know, I'm not even sure if I can last the day
No clowning around with what I'm saying; it's all true
That I'm just a half-assed **** whenever I'm without you
Come a bit closer and I'mma show you my intentions
I got one more secret left for you, that you're my resurrection
God pulled me from my grave, so now I'm here and still alive
He told me I couldn't die as long as you're here in my life
...And as I wrap up this rhyme, just go and take this rose
Don't ever throw it away, just please keep it close...
