Ending Verse Quotes Lyrics from Lecrae (DWYL), Da’T.R.U.T.H (The Faith), Dre Murray (Take it Away) and Eshon Burgundy (TEOTNS)
But I here, with the DNA of a cheater
Know I’m bucking every urge,
Dai(Deer)ly not to be eaten,
Grandma left bitter,
My mother left wheezing,
I’m warring (Warren), so my wife,
Will never have to know Tina, (Mary Mary)
My Sisters were never edified,
I was left heated.
fired the cold in my heart
So my son won’t know fever,
I’d be lying if I said I didn’t see her,
And my pride doesn’t fight
To be main (mane), to make me a cheetah,
But for every temptation,
Every thirst, every thought,
There is Grace, There is Mercy,
There is Strength thank you Lord,
Won’t play 9, can’t pretend, (pre ten = 9)
I’m fallen and life’s yuck,
And I’m pressing so that my nature,
Doesn’t erupt and leave me stuck,
I know me,
so I know I’m unworthy,
It’s only by his blood,
That I am no longer dirty,
Press towards the mark,
And leave my mark while its early
And sing the Gospel from this temple,
Shirley. (Shirley Temple is a hairdo, person, and Shirley Caesar is a Gospel Singer)
Wind beneath my wing,
For a mighty long way,
Going to for hours,
It’s been a mighty long day, (2-4 hours is a day)
But the Lord is rest for the weary,
We Fly and never faint.
Though this Sky is Falling,
We will soar, night and day:
So all along we sing…
We were, Broken, Torn,
Rejected, Hurting, Scorned.
But for those with eyes on the Lord,
Strength, peace, joy, is in store.
Flying Falling Skies (X3)
And as this time passes,
I know things will get worse,
But the Truth, will remain so,
So, gone prepare me a Hearst,
No, we are not deceived,
We know how this thing works,
He said all the nations will hate you,
Because they hated me first,
So were not, chasing your likes,
Though we strive, to live in peace,
But if that compromises the Faith,
Then that peace, shall rest in peace.
deceased, rose in 3,
that’s why I, salute the provost
the ghost, about faced me,
Set me AJ’s Cohost (Free).
Should I never chart,
or be considered the goat,
I’m content if me rapping,
can be used to touch a soul,
Encourage one of my statesman,
affirm a little girl,
put her on who she is to God,
and help keep her off a pole,
If I never sell a million,
Never pack a show,
I’m content with being faithful,
unto the streets of gold
what this world presents,
Let my nieces know they’re more,
You’re a gift, to be unwrapped,
by your husband, none more.
let my nephews know I love them,
that I’m always here,
a good son to my mother,
a brother, loving and fair.
I’m content with being a man,
saved by Grace,
Father to my son,
Just to see that look on his face,
when I walk in to this house,
he runs up, we embrace,
bless me to love my wife right
in deed, not just what I say.
good name, salt to earth,
servant, warring against the evil,
let people know you love them,
and that love, has no equal.
So Yeah, its lights bright,
The Gospel, front and center.
Love, Joy, Peace, Hope,
Grace, Mercy and Repentance.
Mind Renewal, Spirit purging
Through abiding in the Scriptures.
Balance, His balance, suffer well, live wisdom.
[the final verses of this song incorporates lyrics from other artists as tribute]
Our Money Our Singleness Marriage Our Time,
They belong to us to show the world that Christ is divine,
That’s why its Christ in our rhymes, that’s why its Christ all the time,
We strive to build our world around him he’s the life in our lines.
Cut us open, you’ll see we still bleed that here,
One sows, another waters, God’ll increase that yeah,
preach on, even with feedback there,
Life, light bearing, truth of Jesus. We still need that here.
We on a roll,
Tonic told us to write from our souls,
Not to think about the reviews or the albums we’ve sold,
So we did that, laid back, prayed to get our focus right,
Think about what the culture needs, not just what the culture likes,
Yeah, so we draw lines in the sand,
That would explain the unpopular stance,
Like, pro-life, were un-liked but we stand,
And still sing psalms and hymns, like the bottom of pants,
When they think were writing, were really just sparring,
Warring, flesh dead wrong, Darwin,
Politicking with the land,
They looking at us like we foreign,
Cause we don’t speak the language of the land,
They say we boring,
My life is but a testament to me,
To another, maybe everything they’ll ever need to see
So I’m here flying steady,
Hail falling, fire beneath,
Hoping these seeds take root,
Until the Father’s work is complete.
