Oh Lord

Lyricist:     Composer:

When I die, put my ashes in a trash bag
I don't care where they go
Don't waste your money on my gravestone
I'm more concerned about my soul
Everybody's gon' die
Don't everybody live though
Sometimes I look up to the sky
And wonder
“Do You see us down here, oh Lord?" (Oh Lord) Oh Lord? (Oh Lord)
Do You see us down here, oh Lord? (Oh Lord) Oh Lord? (Oh Lord)
Do You see us down here, oh Lord? (Oh Lord, oh) Oh Lord? (Oh Lord)
Do You see us down here, oh Lord? (Oh Lord, oh) Oh Lord? (Oh Lord, oh Lord…)
Listen! (Listen)
Yeah, everybody wants change (Wants change, wants change…)
Don't nobody wanna change though (Change though, change though…)
Don't nobody wanna pray (Pray, pray, pray, pray…)
'Til they got something to pray fo' (Pray fo', pray fo'…)
Know everybody's gon' die (Gon' die, gon' die…)
But don't everybody live though (Live though…)
Sometimes I look up to the sky (Sky, sky, sky…)
And wonder
"Do You see us down here, oh Lord?" (Oh Lord) (Yeah, yeah, yeah…) Oh Lord? (Oh Lord)
Do You see us down here, oh Lord? (Oh Lord) Oh Lord? (Oh Lord)
Do You see us down here, oh Lord? (Oh Lord, oh) Oh Lord? (Oh Lord)
Do You see us down here, oh Lord? (Oh Lord, oh) Oh Lord? (Oh Lord, oh Lord…)
It's easy to blame God but harder to fix things
We look in the sky like, "Why ain't You listening?"
Watchin' the news in our livin' rooms on the big screens
And talkin' about, "If God's really real, then where is He?" (Is He, is He…)
You see the same God that we're sayin' might not even exist
Becomes real to us but only when we're dyin' in bed
When you're healthy, it's like we don't really care for Him then
"Leave me alone God. I'll call You when I need You again." (Need You again)
Which is funny, everyone will sleep in the pews
Then blame God for our problems like He's sleepin' on you
We turn our backs on Him; what do you expect Him to do?
It's hard to answer prayers when nobody's prayin' to you (Prayin' to you)
I look around at this world we walk on (Walk on)
It's a smack in the face; don't ever tell me there's no God (No God)
And if there isn't, then what are we here for?
And what are y'all doin' down there? I don't know, Lord, ah!
Oh Lord (Oh Lord) Oh Lord (Oh Lord)
Do you see us down here, oh Lord? (Oh Lord) Oh Lord? (Oh Lord)
Do you see us down here, oh Lord? (Oh Lord, oh) Oh Lord? (Oh Lord)
Do you see us down here, oh Lord? (Oh Lord, oh) Oh Lord? (Oh Lord) (Oh)
Do You see us down here, oh Lord?
Can You see us down here, oh Lord?
Oh Lord, oh Lord
Can You see us? (Can You see us?)
Can't You see us? (Can't You see us? Can't You see us?…)
