A lonely mother gazing out of her window 
Staring at a son that she just can't touch 
If at any time he's in a jam 
She'll be by his side 
But he doesn't realize he hurts her so much 
But all the praying just ain't helping 
At all 'cause he can't seem to keep 
His self out of trouble 
So he goes out and he makes his money 
The best way he knows how 
Another body laying cold in the gutter 
Listen to me 

Don't go chasing waterfalls 
Please stick to the rivers and the lakes that 
You're used to 
I know that you're gonna have it your way 
Or nothing at all 
But I think you're moving too fast 

Little precious has a natural obsession 
For temptation but he just can't see 
She gives him loving that his body can't handle 
But all he can say is baby it's good to me 
One day he goes and takes a glimpse 
In the mirror 
But he doesn't recognize his own face 
His health is fading and he doesn't know why 
3 letters took him to his final resting place 
Y'all don't hear me 

I seen a rainbow yesterday 
But too many storms have come and gone 
Leavin' a trace of not one God-given ray 
Is it because my life is ten shades of grey 
I pray all ten fade away 
Seldom praise Him for the sunny days 

And like His promise is true 
Only my faith can undo 
The many chances I blew 
To bring my life to anew 
Clear blue and unconditional skies 
Have dried the tears from my eyes 
No more lonely cries 
My only bleedin' hope 
Is for the folk who can't cope 
Wit such an endurin' pain 
That it keeps 'em in the pourin' rain 
Who's to blame 
For tootin' caine in your own vein 
What a shame 
You shoot and aim for someone else's brain 
You claim the insane 
And name this day and time 
For fallin' prey to crime 
I say the system got you victim to your own mind 

Dreams are hopeless aspirations 
In hopes of comin' true 
Believe in yourself 
The rest is up to me and you
