[intro]
woah-oh
woah
woah-oh
sometimes it’s hard to believe that the truth will set you free

[verse 1]
i ran through the doors of the church on the run
my pastor said, “son, where have you been, what have you done?”
i hear helicopters and police surrounding my church
i said, “i know i’m a heathen but i believe that prayer still works
they’re claiming my fingerprints are on the gun
and i know they’re convinced that i’m the one, yeah
pastor, i need your advice, i’m looking at twenty-five years to life
and i just don’t want another man making lovе to my wife”
[chorus]
don’t tell me thе truth will set you free
’cause there ain’t no justice for a black man like me
i already got homies of mine doing time
so pastor, please forgive me, sometimes i just don’t believe that
the truth will set you free

[verse 2]
i said, “mama, please find me another attorney
’cause the one that they gave me don’t care too much for me
he be judging me
mama, please forgive me for calling collect
if it’s one thing i know
you and jesus never failed me yet
i got on my knees
in my jail cell
the next thing i knew they just said you posted bail”

[chorus]
they tell me the truth will set you free
but there ain’t no justice for a black man like
i already got homies of mine doing time
so pastor, please excuse me, i just don’t believe

[post-chorus]
sometimes i don’t believe (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
the truth will set you free now (everybody sing)
sometimes i don’t believe (yeah, woah, woah, woah)
the truth will get you freedom (yeah, yeah, yeah)
freedom (that’s what i want, that’s what i need, yeah)
freedom (everybody sing with me)
freedom (yeah)
freedom (freedom to be a black man like me)
[outro]

the police, they wildin’, y’all, hey
can’t you hear people cryin’, y’all? hey
i’m tired of black folks dyin’, y’all
freedom (freedom to be a black man like me)
freedom (freedom to be a black man like me, yeah)
freedom to be a black man like me, yeah
