A godless America its congregation started as a fellowship

With tears written “GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH”

America chew and ate the word, Digested scriptures to rise up

New Eden started in America, Solomon’s seed builds churches

Churches backslide into halls, With Choir change their name legally into whores

America followed like an IG page a Ghetto Jesus

Forgot originator, Scriptures was revised into slangs

Disciples accepted Judas gospel for papers

Despite staking paper to Everest heights

Still can clothe the fashionistas called needies

That flaunt their glorious hungry ribs

America download rotten tomatoes and listen to prophets

Who don’t teach how to bake but how to own bakery via pushes

Where are the revivals that broke out in civil war armies?

Where are the prayer meetings that started weeknights in the slave cabins?

Two independence in America one via Jefferson the other freedom of equality

Tell South Korea we are everywhere survivors

America go back to GOD, Said in tears by weeping ancestors

Wake up America read today’s papers

Jesus is jetting in soon.. GOD BLESS AMERICA
