Flame

Flame - Where God Placed You

rate me

I grew up in St. Louis

Dirty 314

It was nothing

I was accustomed to see one go

In that high rise building on that 14th floor

With them broke elevators

Man that thing ran slow

Mom and Pops at the crib told me bless my plate

That government cheese for dinner we on Section 8

Plus it's hard Mom sick Daddy come home late

In them streets past 3 trying to chase that weight

Moms due in and out of the hospital

I'm listening to shots riddle

All this while I's little

I'm thinking back, I'm thinking back this is weak and wack

Like objects they stick us all in these projects, yes

More or less think this the way it is

That God made us and God placed me in brown skin

Around sin

My grade school ain't get government aid

A young ages feel like that we got government played but...

He placed me right here

(Do you think about your place on the map)

(Some born in the suburbs, some in the trap)

He placed you right there

(Consider your race, your city and state)

(Your third world or US of A)

He placed me right here

(Consider your race)

(By God's design, you were placed in time and space)

He placed you right there

(Before the day of your birth)

(God decided where He wanted you to stay on this earth)

He placed me right here

God established the boundaries of your habitat

Ain't no accident if you were born listening to rap

Ain't no accident if God made you white or black (nope)

In America, South Africa or Iraq

Ain't no coincidence if you were born with riches

Or in poverty obviously God has his intentions

See He made all nations and He know they situation

Ain't no accident you were packed in this generation

And your situation should get you chasing His plan

To get you groping and seeking just to see what He saying

See God ain't far away

And He ain't hard to find

But the Father's the farthest person away from our mind

And when you want to complain

Think a couple of things

Why you in my head

And what is it that Jesus is saying

Then read the Bible and God'll guide you right into change

The time is now, now

Just turn around and lift up your hands

See some of ya'll might be wondering

Why am I where I am? Good question.

Why am I this race?

Why am I this age?

But see God put you right where He saw fit

At the time He wanted to

At the year He saw was best for you

See He put you in the right situations

That you might feel your way towards Him

To find Him

Though He is not far from each one of us
