about

Dedicated to my mother, Dr. J.S.K. Faye.

lyrics

Everything that you went through mama
You know it made me what I am
It's good to finally have that conversation
I finally feel like I'm a man
Now I'm starin' down the truth in the mirror
Naked and brutal in the sun
And my reality is so much clearer
I know there's nowhere left to run
There's nowhere left for me to run

They called it serendipity
But you knew it was fate
And that's the separation
OF CHURCH & STATE

Sinking down into the part of me
That's holding back the tide of years
It cuts into the very heart of me
They've all begun to smell my fear
And every lesson but I'm learning from you
The generations at my feet
Around in circles as we all become you
And now that circle is complete
And I am dying
To be complete.

I thought I wanted yesterday
but now it's all too late
And that's the separation
of church and state
Church and state
The necessary evil I love to hate
Church and state, church and state
That's the separation
That's the separation
Ohhhh

Whatcha say, whatcha say
I'm listenin'
Whatcha say, whatcha say
I'm listenin' now
I'm listenin' now
Heaven knows, heaven knows
I'm shiverin'
Heaven knows, heaven knows
I'm shiverin' now
I'm shiverin' now

So please don't leave me hanging
Outside your pearly gates
I need disintegration...
I need disintegration...
OF CHURCH & STATE
Church and state
The necessary evil I love to hate
Church and state, church and state
That's my separation
That's the separation
OHHHHHHHH
