It’s 26 years in the making, God is so amazing/ my life’s an open book, you can read the pages/ It’s more than entertainment, welcome to my life off stage/ it’s a constant battle daily with the sin I was wage/ it’s a battle I had lost before I fought, I was born into the sin that caused mankind’s fall/ it effected how I lived and all the thought’s I thought, I was a slave to a master that exposed my flaws/ I lived, day to day just to please myself, searching to fill the void I couldn’t see but felt/ I looked deep into the mirror and couldn’t see myself, just the shell of a man that couldn’t free himself/ but then, Christ appeared and revealed His love, water flowed from His side it was mixed with blood/ and I saw my transgressions on the cross where He hung, where God poured out His wrath for all the evil I’d done/ the glory of the Son, He is the image of the Father, lead by the Spirit like a lamb to the slaughter/ yeah and now the Lion will roar, and all creation looks for the return of the Lord.
So we reaping the harvest, the blood spilled by the martyrs, is the seed of the church Christ built by the Father/ evicting deceivers, reading the prophets, teaching that leads us to Jesus’s office/Messiah, the resurrected Redeemer, clothed in the righteousness He would give to His people/ Justified only, by Christ cause He chose me, its not just I know Him but that God knows me/ yeah so I’m saved by grace, I couldn’t obtain what Christ gave through faith/ Dog I couldn’t qualify, gave it my all but I, couldn’t live up to the law, Dog I tried/ Yeah so I rely on Him, focused on the cross I keep my eye on Him/ thank you Jesus for paying my debt, this is the abolition of Ali Rozet.
Track Name: You Saved Me
You saved me from myself, turned me from my sin/ showed me who I was, and changed me from within/I was on my own, I won’t be that way again/ I’ll never let you go, I’m riding till the end/ cause Father you saved me. x4
I take a look at who I was before You pardoned me, and see a man so scared of who he thought he’d be/ I was under the impression I was worthless, the things I placed so high above myself just wasn’t worth it/ Yeah I tried living for the world it wasn’t working, they told me that they want me even though I wasn’t perfect/ but every time I reached out for a hand it was a burden, I tried to make them love me, I just couldn’t earn it/ was searching for a purpose, fronting on the surface, but deep inside I can’t deny there’s more to life than hurting/ I thought I must be ugly all they ever did was judge me, abuse, push, and shove me, deceive me and corrupt me/ I put myself worth into what ever came first, anything to quench my thirst, it got worse/ and as I sank deeper, I finally hit the bottom, and guess who was there to come and save me from my problems.
I’m still going through the process of restoration, I got a lot of guilt inside and self-condemnation/ at times my past haunts me when I’m by myself, and tries to tempt me into being who the Father killed!/ sometimes I fall, and I fear the worst, and I feel alone, and my feelings hurt/ but then He shows up and shows me what redemption is, and how forgiveness isn’t limited to just the present tense/ my past is gone, not just disappeared, not its existence but dominion over future years/ there’s hope in that, and it gives me peace, my short comings wont limit who I’m meant to be/ that means I’m meant to breathe, but more than that I’m meant to love, change won’t ever come if I aint changed from who they thought I was/ it’s not just who I am, but who I am in Him, which means I’m called to give everything that I am like
Track Name: Beard ft. JGivens, ProCyse & Young Buddy
Look at His love in redemption, justified in the election, of the saints, given grace through Christ resurrection/ stepped into the flesh, still lived in perfection, fulfilled the old covenant laws not too mention/ met the requirements and all the dimensions, of Messiah, Isaiah 53 as a reference/ born to be a king, one of Davids descendants, the Seed that would bless all the nations within Him/ yes He would later face death, but was destined, to lay down His life for His bride, does ya dress fit?/ woah, the hypocrites tried to protest Him, in public with questions, devised to distress Him/ but none could contest Him, He marveled and vexed them, and spoke with the authority of God when He addressed them/ yes they would penetrate flesh in an instant, but in His suffereing He still prayed for forgiveness/ empowering His followers to follow in His message, seated by the Father since the day that He ascended/ worthy is the Lamb, let us bow in His presence, Creator of the earth, and our High Priest in heaven.
Hook Young Buddy
There is none greater yeah, You sit so high above me Lord/ You are my savior and, I’m proud to be wrapped up in Your love/ and when You hung up on that cross for me, a sacrifice/ and appeased the wrath of God for me yeah.
He is the Most High, no one is illa, supreme healer, the rock for the giant killer/ don’t ever test Him, don’t bubble it, rest in the Son of Him, dressed in vests of righteousness, y’all know that old covenant/ was out dated, but then the Son changed it, the new covenant, got us looking like Him like a doublemint/ sovereign ruler, the people chooser, we are elected, so keep it moving, cause even Judas was expected/ correction destined in His intricate plan, like the Netflix He is watching in the palm of His hand/ since the fall of man, when time began, the Fathers Spirit ampersand, the Son shaped the land/ the great I AM, the plan was this though, He knew that His children would be hungry like 4 hippos, and smoking crystal/ so Rahab put a flag in the window, and the color was red yall that’s not accidental/ a shadow of the gospel, this battles getting hostile(hostel) like hotels but oh well the Lord is still awesome/ its getting late floetry, God is saying go to me, you asking why you aint saved homie, cause you don’t want to be.
Our lifes limited, constrained to be minimal, His power is infinite, watch what He begins to do/ Limitless, never confined to be finished with, the missions He envisioned were painted in the images/ of a time when miracles simply seemed impossible, yet His presence among the world was unstoppable/ attempt to put an end to it, intended for the benefit, to feed their selfishness, yet we represent that heaven sent/ that breaks boundaries that have ever been presented, made the world in 6 days and rested on the 7th/ cant fathom His presence, standing in His essence, my life is what He manages from heaven/ I am a man that is destined, to show the world how great He is, He is the King of all Kings, no time fore debating this/ you claiming His word is empty and full of busts, His gifts right here bringing truth to us all, lets go.
Track Name: Paper Trail ft. Bridge B & Jeremiah Bligen
They want that skrill yall, make feta and peel off, getting paid dropping dimes on the block, Chris Paul/ Yeah they do anything for the cheddar dog, chasing cheese with a whole clique full of cheddar Bob’s/ you can’t but what you’re missing, why you chasing after change? Aint a dime going with ya/ its money or the gospel, what ya got in ya pocket? See money aint a problem but your god is in your wallet/ you put money over God just to make a little profit, I put Christ over balling, He’s a different kind of prophet/ that’s a price you can’t pay, all they got is that cheese on their mind, Green Bay/ see money fades, no clippers, but salvation lives inside your frame, no pictures/ eternal riches, that’s the kind you can’t spend, dudes will waist their whole life for some 20inch rims/
They love the money, and what it brings, the respect, and what it means/ all the fame, and all the lights, the like the game, they live the life/ yeah they love the paper though, yeah they love the paper though/ I mean really, they love the paper dog, and they gon get it, and they gon get it.
Vs. 2 Jeremiah Bligen
Black cars, back yards, pool with the grass fenced in, something foreign with 10 cylinders in that engine/ two stories, get the glory by any means, whether it’s selling crack rock or neglecting your team/ ugh but you aint used to that huh? You’d rather pick on the hustlers like they’re the only ones/ no can’t do, white and blue, collars on it too, ignoring spouses, crazy hours, the love of money God is due/ kill, lie, cheat, steal, defame and disrespect our women, for dead men, on dead trees, we dead folks living/ forever chasing, the drop outs and the graduated, but why we still slaves when Jesus emancipated?/ I know it’s hard but the Lord is saying seek ye, first chase change like your reaching in the seat crease/ and flee the fleeting feeling that pride gives and come home, and let Him snatch you out the pitt, Santonio Holmes, go on!
Vs.3 Bridge B
My God’s eternal balling, I think He got you there, sorry to sink the 8ball for all you pocket players/ they let them watches glare, sorry my God is higher, He get that crazy air, Amare Stoudemire/ yaall men are gon start a fire, cause God’s enemies called a liar, there is one remedy called retire, from involving with these dollar divers/ everybody wants a piece of pie, isn’t that the truth, the call vodka eternal, they call it Absolut/ wonder what damages that’ll do? Look up Leviticus chapter 2, you give it to Him in the spirit of diligence, He’ll end up giving it back to you/ walking a different avenue, still in His word, statue, looking to bless you ah choo, drawn by His flesh, tattoo/ serving the Lion, zazoo, don’t they know that its temporary? Thinking its paper that makes them gods, why don’t they look in the dictionary? / Funny the way that a fiction carries, unaware of their destination, they never imagined loving the salary actually lead to their degradation.
Track Name: Come and Go
Man we used to, boost powder and roll with the same people, break down the swisher and blow out the same reefer/ tip back the bottle till morning then repeat it, rock the same clothes and borrow each other’s Fila’s/ we, started doing dirt, got caught but they couldn’t change us, young without guidance, thought that we was dangerous/ we started telling everybody else that we was reli’s, even started to believe it, wasn’t nothing they could tell me/ remember we would stay up all night writing lyrics, with a pack of ports thinking everybody about to feel it/ even the girls we were with were best friends, looking back I’m like man we used to clown back then/ yeah we used to dream back then, not knowing the consequences of the things we did/ and I never thought things would go the way they went, but we was only teenagers, we had barely lived.
Yeah people come and go, and there’s a lot of things that change with the times I know/ and looking back we were blind to the way things were, we were living for the moment trying to mask the hurt/ but even though we tried to run, we always fell back into the same old stuff/ and in the end, we both had a choice to make, you stayed where we was at, and I chose to get away, ay.
And I was the first homie to visit you at the center, locked up over that girl you wouldn’t listen/ and once you got out, you went right back in, same girl, same results, I got hype right then/ and I was always on the move, you was always locked up, but we always stayed cool/ a letter here, a call there, sorry I missed our calls fam, life is getting harder, I wish that I could call back/ but I was slipping deeper in depression, I was selfish, so I’m sorry I wasn’t always there to help ya/ bro I’m going through some things myself, I’m 19 no job, on the road to hell/ man I need some help, I just failed school and money’s heading to jail/ I feel like everything around me is caving in, man I’m through living life like this, that’s it.
Track Name: Used To Be Me ft. BMII
I don’t do this for applause, aint tripping off the jewelry or the cars, I been there homie, that’s a lost cause/ I do this for the Lord, I been in this, I do it cause I’m called, He set me free from living like a fraud/ He made me complete, let em know, it aint about me, or where I go/ He saw me in my need, came to set me free, yeah now I serve Him homie, you know what it be, that used to be me
I got the victory, with a losing record, I stand on truth, so I stand corrected/ He laid sin to rest, the moment that He resurrected, so I starve the flesh, I’m anorexic/ I been freed from the righteous I had, in fact, all I had was filthy rags, like a laundry mat/ yeah so what I got to prove? Except without Him that I’m off key, auto tune/ yeah yall know how the Father do, He pulled me out my grave, I been exhumed. I can’t pursue what I used to do, trust me, I treat the past like hammer, can’t touch me
He took them chains off, no more shackles on me, I’m still a slave, different master homie/ my dudes relate, this isn’t new to us, I mean we still the same, it’s just a newer us/ and you can move with us, it’s more than just music, trust, yup we on a movement, that’s been moving for 2000 plus/ My God is 3 in 1, that’s the Trinity, plus He’s out this world, I mean literally/ who else you know would take blows to the flesh, just to reconcile foes, cause He chose to be stretched/ I know dudes is gonna oppose but, we called to the text, and I’m called to be faithful ,even if they reject
There is more to life than this, money, cars, and fashion, that’s just the life you get, when all the cameras flashing/ but what happens when the lights go off inside the mansion? Look at the drug addictions, they trying to fill what’s lacking/ and stardom only brings a false sense of happiness, cause once their time is up, what happens after this? / And that’s a question that you have to ask yourself huh? Because if this is it, then build your wealth up/ but if there is more than this you’re faced with a decision, and that means that life is bigger than the moment that you live in/ yeah and if it is bigger than you, than that means you have to answer for the things that you do
