FORGIVE THEM FATHER LYRICS - LAURYN HILL

http://www.sing365.com - Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those that trespass against us

Although them again we will never, never, never trust



Dem noh know weh dem do, dig out yuh yei while dem sticking like glue,

Fling, skin, grin while dem plotting fah you,

True, Ah Who???



Forgive them father for they know not what they do

Forgive them father for they know not what they do



Beware the false motives of others

Be careful of those who pretend to be brothers

And you never suppose it's those who are closest to you, to you

They say all the right things to gain their position

Then use your kindness as their ammunition

To shoot you down in the name of ambition, they do



Forgive them father for they know not what they do

Forgive them father for they know not what they do



Why every Indian wanna be the chief?

Feed a man 'til he's full and he still want beef

Give me grief, try to tief off my piece

Why for you to increase, I must decrease?

If I treat you kindly does it mean that I'm weak?

You hear me speak and think I won't take it to the streets

I know enough cats that don't turn the other cheek

But I try to keep it civilized like Menelik

And other African czars observing stars with war scars

Get yours in this capitalistic system

So many caught or got bought you can't list them

How you gonna idolize the missing?

To survive is to stay alive in the face of opposition

Even when they comin' gunnin'

I stand position

L's known the mission since conception

Let's free the people from deception

If you looking for the answers

Then you gotta ask the questions

And when I let go, my voice echoes through the ghetto

Sick of men trying to pull strings like Geppetto

Why black people always be the ones to settle

March through these streets like Soweto



Like Cain and Abel, Caesar and Brutus, Jesus and Judas,

Backstabbers do this



Forgive them father for they know not what they do

Forgive them father for they know not what they do
