Lyrics
Hey God, I'm just a little man
I got a wife and family
I almost lost my house
I bought into the dream
We're barely holdin' on and I'm in way too deep
We're two paychecks away from livin' out on the street

She's a workin' single mom
Like a saint she don't complain
She never says a word but she thinks that she's to blame
Her son just got convicted
He blew some cop away
She did her best to raise him but the world got in the way

Hey God
Tell me what the hell is goin' on
It seems like all the good ****'s gone
It keeps on gettin' harder hangin' on
But hey hey hey hey God
There's nights you know I want to scream
These days you're even harder to believe
I know how busy you must be
But hey hey hey hey God
Do you ever think about me

Born into the ghetto, 1991
Just a happy child playin' beneath the summer sun
A vacant lot's his playground
By 12 he's got a gun
The odds are bet against him
Junior don't make 21

Hey God
Tell me what the hell is goin' on
It seems like all the good ****'s gone
It keeps on gettin' harder hangin' on
But hey hey hey hey God
There's nights you know I want to scream
These days you're even harder to believe
I know how busy you must be
But hey hey hey hey God
Do you ever think about me

I get down on my knees
I'm gonna try this thing your way
I seen a dyin' man to proud to beg
Spit on his own grave
Was he too gone to save
Or did you even know his name
Are you the one to blame
I got something to say

Hey God
Tell me what the hell is goin' on
It seems like all the good ****'s gone
It keeps on gettin' harder hangin' on
But hey hey hey hey God
There's nights you know I want to scream
These days you're even harder to believe
I know how busy you must be
But hey hey hey hey God
Do you ever think about me

Do you ever think about me
