Hold Me Down Lyrics by DMX

Oh, the king’s back

Hold me down
Hold me down
Even when the rain falls
Hold me down
Hold me down
I’m just so thankful

Every day gets darker, the road gets longer
My body gets weaker, my faith gets stronger
The devil’s working on me hard because God loves me
As long as I’m in his grace it’s gon’ get ugly
But only he can judge me so what another motherfucker say don’t matter
So I avoid the chatter, that way I ain’t gotta splatter with the rat-tat-tatas
Watch what you say or you gon’ wish you had’a
Check a nigga data, ain’t naan nigga battled
With the mic and the dog, from rights and the wrongs
Still bite and go hard, spazz to the left
And with the last of my breath I beat that ass to death

Hold me down
Hold me down
Even when the rain falls
Hold me down
Hold me down
I’m just so thankful

I’m pulled in opposite directions, my life’s in conflict
That’s why I spit words that depict a convict
Man, if you not able to see what I’m sayin’ to you then you not able to be
It’s like reading the Bible to a baby
Some of y’all will get it but most of y’all will think I’m crazy
But I ain’t never gave a fuck about what you think
What you think don’t matter, you think your shit don’t stink
Man, it hurts when people I love don’t want me
Want it all from me, then think they can judge me
Treat me like I’m ugly
I done did some dumb shit but I ain’t never been a dummy
‘Cause I know God loves me

Hold me down
Even when the rain falls
Hold me down
Hold me down
I’m just so grateful
Hold me down

Hold me down
Hold me down
Hold me down
Even when the rain falls
Hold me down
I’m just so grateful
Nobody, nobody’s gonna take me down
Hold me down
‘Cause I went through it all

Hold me down
Hold me down
Hold me down
Nobody, nobody’s gonna take me down
Hold me down
Oh Lord
You wanna know how I survive
And it’s all because of you
And I’m just so grateful
