7. Jesus Walks
Kanye West Lyrics


Order, huh
Yo, we at war
We at war with terrorism, racism, but most of all we at war with ourselves

(Jesus Walks)
God show me the way because the Devil's tryin' to break me down
(Jesus Walks with me, with me, with me, with me, with me)

You know what the Midwest is?
Young and Restless
Where restless niggas might snatch ya necklace
And next these niggas might jack ya Lexus
Somebody tell these niggas who Kanye West is
I walk through the valley of Chi where death is
Top floor of the view alone will leave you breathless
Try to catch it, it's kinda hard
Getting choked by detectives yeah, yeah, now check the method
They be asking us questions, harass, and arrest us
Saying "We eat pieces of shit like you for breakfast!"
Huh! Y'all eat pieces of shit? What's the basis?
We ain't goin' nowhere, but got suits and cases
A trunk full of coke rental car from Avis
My Mama used to say only Jesus can save us
Well Mama, I know I act a fool
But I'll be gone 'til November, I got packs to move, I hope

(Jesus Walks)
God show me the way because the Devil's tryin' to break me down
(Jesus Walks with me)
The only thing that I pray is that my feet don't fail me now (I want Jesus)
(Jesus Walks)
And I don't think there is nothing I can do now to right my wrongs
(Jesus Walks with me)
I want to talk to God, but I'm afraid because we ain't spoke in so long
(I want Jesus)
God show me the way because the Devil's tryin' to break me down
The only thing that I pray is that my feet don't fail me now
And I don't think there is nothing I can do now to right my wrongs
I want to talk to God, but I'm afraid because we ain't spoke in so long, so long

So long
(Jesus Walks with me)

To the hustlers, killers, murderers, drug dealers even the strippers
(Jesus walks for them)
To the victims of welfare for we living in hell here hell yeah
(Jesus walks for them)
Now hear ye hear ye want to see Thee more clearly
I know He hear me when my feet get weary
Cause we're the almost nearly extinct
We rappers are role models we rap we don't think
I ain't here to argue about his facial features
Or here to convert atheists into believers
I'm just trying to say the way school need teachers
The way Kathie Lee needed Regis that's the way I need Jesus
So here go my single dog radio needs this
They said you can rap about anything except for Jesus
That means guns, sex, lies, video tape
But if I talk about God my record won't get played
Huh?
Well let this take away from my spins
Which will probably take away from my ends
Then I hope this take away from my sins
And bring the day that I'm dreaming about
Next time I'm in the club everybody screaming out

(Jesus Walks)
God show me the way because the devil trying to break me down
(Jesus Walks with me, with me, with me)
The only thing that I pray is that me feet don't fail me now

(TEXT THREAD FROM MY SON TO ME.)
(HIM) "some old white hair petty guy came here, asking if we knew the people across the street. but i was holding the pole and the dogs were barking at him so he left."

(ME) "It's good you have that pole! It's so long that with one good swing to their head, you will hurt them!!"

(ME) "ALWAYS AIM FOR THEIR HEAD IN THIS CASE!! ITS NOT A GUN!! A COURT OF LAW WOULD SIDE WITH THE AUTISTIC MAN BEING HARASSED BY A MONSTER!!"

(SEE, D.A. BOUDIN, THEY LOVE TO HARASS AUTISTIC JESUS!! EVIL TRASH!! I GAVE HIM THAT PATIO UMBRELLA POLE AND TOLD HIM TO USE THAT IF NECESSARY!!)

After watching the documentary and to see how Kanye kept it going, the love from his mum and how she would rap to his songs, Kanye is a genius and it is beautiful that he is still here with us and we are not talking about him in the past tense.

Shawn S

@Tunde Bankole I'm thinking she kept him in good spirits. Without her reminding him a giant doesn't see a giant in the mirror to keep him humble. Ye gonna be alright.

Kanye is Self-made. Whether he was signed to Roc-A-Fella or not. He created his own opportunities and never gave up! I see him in a different light now. Genius for real.

Gwendoline

Lord, give me a sign

Le Bonk Sirree

@Soare I doesn’t literally mean he didn’t make himself without god

Tamara Wilson

@Soare damn!! Self made meaning his accomplishments were achieved cuz he pushed himself not because of the label that he was signed to. He did everything for himself that normally a label is to do for u … nobody is being blasphemous! Roc a fella made a lot of rappers .. but Kanye would have done it with or without them. Just Becus of his determination. It ain’t that serious u person

Soare

Saying someone is self-made is a blasphemy! We are all God-made, nothing happens without His permission, not even a strand of hair is growing or falling without His permission, not a day being alive is passing without Him allowing us to still stand and breathe. Don't be deceived.
Jesus is Lord of Lords and King of Kings!
