Chorus
Pray for wisdom, I pray for wisdom
People want riches, but I pray for wisdom
Pray for wisdom, I pray for wisdom
You want three wishes, but I pray for wisdom

Verse 1-Mercury the Maroon

I look at you and see my younger self/
See the hunger in your eyes, you want that belt/
You want the glory, the story
But you could spare the gory details that always come before.../
Money grows on trees, and all YOU gotta do is be outside when there's a slight breeze/
Life is easy when you're young and don't give a f*ck/
That's because you're young...and don't give a f*ck/
You ain't got shit you can't afford to lose yet/
You just got tits, and ain't even use them yet/
You want respect..but what you do to earn it/
Talking big money with your peoples while you're burning/
Nickel and dime, your mind too fickle/
Time ticking away, your chance gon' miss you/
Get a slice of life, stop chewing at the gristle/
Take a bite tonight, see what it might get you/
Maybe then you can spot your potential/
Get your mind right and do what you were meant to/
A happy life is never coincidental../
It takes work to overcome what you've been through...

Chorus

Verse 2--Tsi La Brev

Pray for Wisdom
And I pray for enemies /
Thems the only reason for intelligence and remedies /
Move in silence /
Bad boys and science /
The two combine for you so you can choose peace or violence /
So pray for wisdom so your people can be given /
Every opportunity to shine /
So words ain't used against them /
No regrets then /
Deep thought intentions /
And don't rely on these schools /
Fools entrenched in /
I look my seeds in their eyes and let our souls touch /
Go dutch /
Payin our dues until we globe clutch /
It's like the world in my hands /
After I know stuff /
That's the only danger cause we able to implore sons /
And Raise our daughters to praise change enormous /
Cause wisdom lies /
Refine the mind by what we chorus /
And what's in store is just the proper piece of Horus /
Not indoctrinated scores of white imperial folkloric /
