Truth Travels :

(Chorus- X2)
Dawg the truth a travel
When we spit get a grip like boots and gravel
We bout to take it to the streets and scream from the roof tops
From the hood, to the burbs, to the booth, to the boondocks

(Verse One – Flame and Thi’sl)
Flame: A yo
The I, I see our generation is fallen
Sick like Mardi Gras and we don’t live in New Orleans
Real like ’95 when bloods and crips was bangin’
When my homie said “Flame forget school I’m slangin’”

Thi’sl: They skip school they bangin
Roc choppin’ and slangin’, posted up they hangin’
Till he hit wit a banga

Flame: Now he’s covered in blood but not the blood of Christ
His ice is bloody and not even his diamonds shine

Thi’sl: His soul is lifted, the sad part he wasn’t gifted
With the gift of life through Christ we’re given

Flame: STOP! Better yet go straight to the cross
The cross of Christ who came just to quicken the lost listen

Thi’sl: The word says He’s the judge of the quick and the dead
The healing hands that restores us we sick in the head

Flame: Bless the one that bled, when our hearts were hard
He called us forth, and visit our spiritual grave yard Father

(Chorus- X2)
Dawg the truth a travel
When we spit get a grip like boots and gravel
We bout to take it to the streets and scream from the roof tops
From the hood, to the burbs, to the booth, to the boondocks

(Verse Two – Flame)
We’re the Christians that witness out on the front line
And if we losin’ our breath its not from runnin’ from one time
It’s from grindin’ shinin’ and spitin’ bars of truth
Exhaustin’ our whole heart to school yards of youth
Feel like I’m fastin’ cuz dirty I ain’t ate in a while
We been preachin’ while heathens are fakin’ a smile
They not happy knowin’ your daddy is locked up
He snorted so much coke his nose is stopped up
Ya mommy got knocked up, ya homie got chopped up
Yet he still poppin’ them rocs and you throwin’ ya block up
We spit Jesus dirty for more reasons than one
Cuz time is leakin’ even more of a reason to run
Call me Flame cuz my temperature’s 209
I feel the fire preachin’ Jesus before we run outta time
It’s one Christ one hope one life for real
And since we all gotta die hope I die in the field

(Chorus- X2)
Dawg the truth a travel
When we spit get a grip like boots and gravel
We bout to take it to the streets and scream from the roof tops
From the hood, to the burbs, to the booth, to the boondocks

(Verse Three – Thi’sl)
No doubt fam where I stand with the team
I’m a runnin’ back the head coach Christ the King
John 1 shows us how Christ esteems
We champions now through Him despite the ring
Like Aragon He comin’ back like “Return of the King”
Like Sam I’m walkin’ with Flame to carry the ring
Opposin’ squad hate to come through and bury your dreams
But like John man my eyes have seen some scarier things
But we take it to the streets because they need the truth
Break bread and fellowship and go and feed the truth
Drop seeds and intercede that they heed the truth
Edify and strengthen them so they don’t leave the truth
Flame fam I’d bleed for you- but that goes without sayin’
Cause I know Christ He breathes through you
No doubt what we came to do, what we about to do
Hit the roof tops and shout the truth

(Chorus- X2)
Dawg the truth a travel
When we spit get a grip like boots and gravel
We bout to take it to the streets and scream from the roof tops
From the hood, to the burbs, to the booth, to the boondocks

Lyrics to God Man :

(Verse One)
You say you would die for your block, and you would die for your dawgs
But would you get on the cross, and then die for us all
I can hear Him cryin’ “Let this cup pass from Me”
Yet some sin against Holy Ghost which is blasphemy
Now picture pain the worst on earth ever existed
Experienced the mischief, endureth the crucifixion
He died although 40 percent wouldn’t believe
See He died although 10 percent wouldn’t receive
See He died although 20 percent wouldn’t understand
And only 30 percent reverenced Him as the Son of Man
Now knowin’ this He still said “Nevertheless, not My will but let Yours be done”
33 years of pain, sufferin’ and sorrow
Rejection, ridicule in a tomb that was borrowed
Foxes have holes, birds have nest
But even the Son of Man didn’t have a place to rest

(Chorus)
They forget You’re the Godman
Your Word says You were tempted on every hand
yet they promise up and down that you don’t understand
Could it be an excuse to continue in sin
Could it be in their greed that they want more
As if dyin’ on the cross wasn’t enough for them
Let’s pretend and defend like it’s the last rhyme
This is what I would say to persuade minds
Listen

(Verse Two)
The first Adam straight died with his bride
And the second Adam straight died for His bride
And we have a high priest who can really sympathize
With our weaknesses and see the lies
And the disguise in us lived in Nazareth that’s similar to our urban streets
Til He was 30 and rejected by His town peeps
Know what it’s like to be shun, hung, spit upon
And still be the Son and one with the Father
Feel the agony of the main people hatin’ on you
The ones that read about you and suppose to be waitin’ on you
Know what it’s like to be dogged out
But gotta fight cause you called out
Plus in the garden of Gethsemane
He made the choice to surrender to His enemies
Know what it’s like to walk the earth and get no love
Treated so cold like hands and ice with no gloves

(Chorus)
They forget You’re the Godman
Your Word says You were tempted on every hand
yet they promise up and down that you don’t understand
Could it be an excuse to continue in sin
Could it be in their greed that they want more
As if dyin’ on the cross wasn’t enough for them
Let’s pretend and defend like it’s the last rhyme
This is what I would say to persuade minds
Listen

(Verse Three)
No tongue should ever speak He don’t know strugglin’
Heartache, heart break and sufferin’
Spit on, whipped on, and thrown down
A prophet without honor in His hometown own town
We waitin’ to see the spectacular and miraculous
He cracked the grave and resurrected the miraculous
Showed His love and died for us while we were yet sinners
You’re either generation X or blessed winners
Took many lashes and then shed blood
Cried and sweat blood, God, now that’s love that’s love
What more can He do than He’s already done
Than to love the world so much that He sent His only begotten son
What more can He do to say that He loves your life
Than to wrap in human flesh and become the Christ

Lyrics to Like Christ :

[Verse One]
She’s always dancin’ like every little chance she gets
And little man can’t wait to get his hands on the whip
They don’t understand life nor the issue of sin
But they know the article and the issue that 50 was in
You should hear them spit little man is always tryin’ to battle rap
I’m like follow me to the scriptures see where the battle’s at
But you can’t you’re watching College Hill
I guess you drop your cup and let the knowledge spill
I’m lookin’ for the convicted to see who’s new on the team
And tired of doing what they do on the screen
In other words, tryin’ to see the ones that Jesus drafted
No matter what round pick you were still engrafted
You ain’t gotta walk miles for cheesecake to be down with the squad
Faith through grace will get you signed with God
So let Him hear you say “I wanna be like Christ”
He’ll change the person’s life, after hearin’ the sinner pray

[Verse Two]
Look at baby girl is cute as a baby doll
It’s hard to reach her cause she’s tuned into cable now
She’s watchin’ videos starin’ at all of the boys
She’s a sinner she doesn’t know about Jesus’ joy
Yet she knows about the clothes and the latest fashion
She should be on MTV news with the latest action
About what’s goin’ on lately in the industry
But she’s clueless about Jesus’ ministry
She doesn’t know her and God are still enemies
Separated by nature now there’s enmity
She’s so silly you should see her dance
Only thing that I’m prayin’ is that she sees her chance
To meet the One with the world in His hands
Personally as her Savior and start takin’ a stand
Begin to advance and stop chasin’ a man
I wanna be like Christ
Is what the Father is waitin’ to hear the young lady sayin’

[Verse Three]
You can’t claim to be a Laker rockin’ white and red
See those are Rockets we headed with the righteous dead
That’s a category mistake like a solo group
You can’t take to the grave those Manolo boots
Advice to you look to His life and the blood that He shed
The sin price cost Him more than an arm and a leg
And we ain’t preachin’ wrap it up
You wouldn’t have to deliver if you put the package up
Get it? Everybody is lookin’ for somethin’ to be like
But other somethings are nothing unless it be Christ
The Bible instructs us we sinners and can’t see light
Our direction is left and sinners can’t see right
I can’t wait til we finish and get to see Christ
Mike is retired seek the Messiah I wanna be like Christ
That’s the only person God wants us to be like

Lyrics to How Long :

(Verse One)
I question myself yo’ Flame why are you tryin’
To live without the Lion of Judah inside you are dyin’
Not communin’ with the God of Mount Zion
Can’t you see you’re denyin’
The very God they can’t break down to a science
I know you’re young and you see some things that you think you are missin’
Man you trippin’ you’re missin’ nothin’ get back on your mission
You followed the flesh next you would wallow in mess
Don’t let thinkin’ bout sex throw you back like a you’re Mitchell and Ness
Don’t get weary in your well-doin’
you were doin’ well until you let your well ruin and run dry
Tryin’ to fulfill them selfish ambitions
Making sinful decisions without repentance leaves only contention
Don’t forget you’re a professin’ Christian
Them lyrics you’ve written-
They don’t mean nothin’ unless they match your livin’
No one ever received elevation
Dibblin’ And dabblin’ and rappin’ with procrastination

(Chorus)
How long has it been since we’ve communicated
Oh Lord I’m tired of sin it keeps me humiliated
So much sin in the world we in and I’ve been regenerated
Oh Lord I need Jesus, Jesus, Jesus oh, how long has it been?

(Verse Two)
I haven’t been girded with the full armor
I’ve deserted your Word it turned to nervousness and then full drama
It’s better for me to have never known
Than to know the truth and turn back to what is wrong
That’s like spewin’ from my own stomach
Then turnin’ around and eatin’ my own vomit
When I’ve been made clean and I don’t mean Comet
Lord break me abase me make me face holiness
Shake me shape me make me face loneliness
Redeem me rescue this vessel press through
So much just to get next to you it’s stressful
It helps to confess my test it’s just to bless you
Disconnected I need to connect to you
Where can I go to escape from your presence
You’re omnipresent you’re present in hell and present in heaven
Plus I’m weary and wounded, my theory’s consumed in
Iniquity’s union my history is sick with influence

(Chorus)
How long has it been since we’ve communicated
Oh Lord I’m tired of sin it keeps me humiliated
So much sin in the world we in and I’ve been regenerated
Oh Lord I need Jesus, Jesus, Jesus oh, how long has it been?

(Verse Three)
Lord let these broken bones rejoice in a song
Givin’ you glory until I get home
Never takin’ my freedom and overthrow your authority on the throne
Livin’ it holy until I get home
Desperate measures will I take from now on
To stay away from what I’m knowin’ is wrong
Selfcontrol because my suffering is long
No more will I ignore the fact that it’s on
Prayin’ until you come back for your own
I’m fearfully and I’m wonderfully made
Elected and affected by your irresistible grace
And Lord that means something
Take my heart and then clean something
Make me mature and help me endure please
Deliver me from the guilt and the filth, find me on my knees
Knelt down about to put my face to the ground
When I start renewin’ my mind it’ll lessen the times I have to sing

(Chorus – 2X)

Lyrics to Open My Heard :

(Intro)
I guess we all hurt sometimes
So I find myself takin’ it one day at a time ya’ know
Cause’ ain’t nothin’ easy about this life here
I must seek my Source, one day at a time y’all

(Verse One)
Nothing in this world will ever be peaches and cream
That’s just in everyday living not mentioning spiritual things
I get sick and tired of hard times, It’s hard to renew my mind
Hard to put the past behind when ya’ feelin’ blind
I grew up seeing the same ol’ murdas
Same ol’ thugs in the same ol’ swervas
Sometimes I was afraid to walk through the ‘hood
I know we say it but ain’t all good I’m keeping it real
My daddy came home he was robbed
Mom on disability and daddy lost his job
So where that leave me at? I go to school wit dirty shoes and wack ball caps
I’m in the hall catchin’ all laughs
I’m tryin’ to stay focused ’cause this locust is real
Went to kick it but my homie got killed
I’m under all pressure
The Lord blessed a young ghetto child like Flame
I’m still living through the sufferin’ and pain

(Chorus – 3X)
Lord I know that you already love me
And you want me to walk by my faith
But it’s hard for me to see you when there’s no good around
So I need you to open my heart so I can love you more
(While I’m livin’ I’m a give you my all)

(Verse Two)
It kinda makes me laugh cause it’s been a long time comin’
Messed up so many times but yet I’m still growin’
See it hurt when my grandmother died
I’m in the hospital room over her bed lookin’ her in the eyes
She always said go to church and serve the Lord
And put Him first over everything especially money and cars
She had a major impact on who I am now
Bowin’ down worshipin’ and sending praises up loud
But yet she’s gone and the same bad things are going on
It’s hard for lil’ Flame to stay strong but yet I hold on
Life is so short we only passing through
Able to catch you a laugh or two
I seen a lady last week gettin’ beat down
And thirteen year old girls gettin’ freaked down
Now you can tell we in the last days
The world has turned away from God now we livin’ in our own ways
Since I have been saved the death angel has passed over
My down was covered by the blood straight from Jehovah
See I’m grateful, for the way of escape from bein’ hateful
The dollar doesn’t make you, power doesn’t make you
I have seen it all nothin’ new under the sun
He made a way out so I had to run
I’m tired of poverty, ghetto areas and trife livin’
I’m tryin’ to elevate to Christ livin’, his righteous life we livin’
Come on

(Chorus – 2X)
Lord I know that you already love me
And you want me to walk by my faith
But it’s hard for me to see you when there’s no good around
So I need you to open my heart so I can love you more
(While I’m livin’ I’m a give you my all)

(Verse Three)
Who else can fill the void straight from all the love that I lost
Except the One who shed all his blood at the cross
I didn’t ask to be born into this world at all
But through God’s grace I was created to praise God
But it gets really hard, I was born right into sin
I was headed for hell before my life even began
But since I’m here now through Christ I’ll make the best of it
I trust God so I’ll let him do the rest
How else could I have peace in this life of crime
How else could I have peace when the battle’s in my mind
How else could I have peace with a broken heart
I wish it was the end like Noah’s ark
It’ll be all over, No more pain no more sufferin’
No more games no more thuggin’ no more hustlin’
I praise God for eternal life the Mediator
Who gave the ultimate sacrifice, and we call him Jesus Christ!

(Chorus)
(While I’m livin’ I’m a give you my all) (7X)
I want to love you Jesus, I want to love you love you
I want to know you yeah yeah yeah
Ooh Jesus, I want to know you know you
So will you open my heart so I can love you, More (2X)
Said I wanna be more like you yes
Said I wanna know how you talked and how you walked
Step by step I’ll get there
If you just hold my hand, and show me the way (2X)

Lyrics to Give Us The Truth :

[Verse One]
All I ever wanted was to know the truth
Seeking Jesus at 16 meaning my middle youth
Man I really hungered and had this inner thirst
Absurd the thought of me even missin’ a day of church
Man it felt like heaven, especially Bible study
I had my Bible pen and pad sittin’ next to my buddies
The Word had us open especially certain verses
Spendin’ hours in worship man it just felt so perfect
And then after the service out on the parking lot
Laughin’ and rappin’ for hours afterwards we talked a lot
Felt like your second family for me felt like my first
We lost our ties when my grandmother died I kept in hurt
Remember certain ministers inspired you to learn
You had anxiety inside and just waitin’ your turn
People announce they callin’ jumpin’ and shoutin’
That dun dunt dun dunt it was so arousin’

[Chorus]
Give us the truth that’s what we need
Lying leaders been deceivin’ us since we were seeds
Give us the truth that’s what we need
Teachers and preachers teach us the things that set us free
Give us the truth that’s what we need
Parents teach us bout Jesus before we get older
Give us the truth that’s what we need
Sin is spreading and the world is getting colder

[Verse Two]
Then that first year progressed and turned into five
Learning so much and I’m comin’ in touch closer with God
Some things were gettin’ sticky I mean real sticky
I’m trippin’ I’m wonderin’ was Jesus even really with me
Man I felt numb meanin’ I lost my feelin’
People standin’, dancin’, liftin’ hands while I was chillin’
No longer loved the sermons felt like I wasn’t learnin’
The topics taught on weren’t touchin’ my inner yearnings
And then some behavior seemed like counterfeit revival
I looked for Scriptures that supported this off in the Bible
Yet I couldn’t find it I felt blinded
I thought it was a demon in error I tried to bind it
But nothin’ happened here comes depression
Maybe when they threw the Holy Spirit that I didn’t catch Him
Did I miss my blessin’? Felt unprotected
In the midst of a war scarred without my weapon

[Chorus]

[Verse Three]
Then I left St. Louis on a tour with Cross Movement
And who would have knew it these dudes have also been through it
I shared my brokenness feelings of hopelessness
For so long faked my emotions no one even noticed it
Yet it was obvious God in His providence
Put me with people to guide me and got me outta this
And then my other brother T.R.U.T.H. began to share the same
I almost wept I saw the steps it took to bear the name
Without truth left me in utter confusion
Without truth left me with subtle delusions
Without truth no longer fought to win
Without truth drove me back into sin
The depth of this journey can’t be described in words
This is just the tip of the iceberg
But from now until my death this is what I’ll do
I’m learning standing and I’ll fight for truth

[Chorus]

Lyrics to Money :

(Verse One)
In the world system we all need money now that’s a given
For many reasons cribs to live in that’s a given
But what is makin’ me sick is the greed
How we have confused the two of which is a desperate need
You’ve got Jesus on the right side money on the left side
Check the steps that lead up to who is God in their lives
Cats is thrivin’ to get rich, the entertainment industry is a quick fix
And I ain’t sayin’ there’s somethin’ wrong with aspirations and dreams
But have you checked lately the aspirations of teens
You got many youth that sell drugs for the love of money
Even internet scandals for the love of money
Even basketball handles for the love of money
Pure passion is clashin’ with the love of money
To be a doctor is what they went to school for
To learn what to do, but the surgery is so expensive ask John Q

(Chorus)
If you insecure poor you gone be insecure rich
If you smoke weed poor you gone smoke weed rich
If you smack cats shot cats got flaps
Did it all poor you gone smack shoot flap all rich

(Verse Two)
I know you sick of bein’ second like the B letter
So you think when you get cheddar your situation will be better
There’s a great percentage of people that are truly convinced
All they need more of in life is dollars and cents
Money can’t fix all your problems dawg I see how you strive
You spend all of your energy and all of your time
Since I love you dawg it’s not worth it
Ask a rapper with a Benz is his life perfect
Ask a married man that’s rich is his wife perfect
Ask a pastor that’s prosperous is his church perfect
Not at all so either way dawg we all still feel pain
And either way without Jesus you gone still meet flame
If not the hell fire then you might meet me
To hear these words that you might just see
Your opportunity to follow Jesus
Guaranteed rich people can’t pay enough to succeed Jesus

(Chorus)
If you insecure poor you gone be insecure rich
If you smoke weed poor you gone smoke weed rich
If you smack cats shot cats got flaps
Did it all poor you gone smack shoot flap all rich

(Verse Three)
Bein’ a millionaire is just as common as bein’ hot in the summer
So many now playin’ lottery numbers
I tell God yo’ we gotta be dumber and dumber
Like Jim Carrey and ol’ boy in that funny movie
Like if we gain every dollar that has ever been printed
And live a life without Jesus and have never repented
That we gon’ gain enough to pay for sin
Slip the gatekeeper a couple of tens, to open the gates and let us in
For the love of money is the root of all evil
This greed grows roots in people and then produces evil
Especially dishonest money, it takes on wings as eagles
So if the state don’t take your property like Beanie Sigel
Remember Jesus sees you can’t serve both God and money
Even if you goin’ yummy cause you money hungry
Please remember this while you out there chasin’ cheddar
Money don’t make you better

(Chorus – 2X)

Lyrics to Ladies :

(Verse One)
Back then if I was a Jew the life that I led would not be common
I would be in prayer shawls anticipatin’ His comin’
Between 1 and 30 A.D. I’d be under the Romans
Thankin’ Yaweh that I’m not a slave, Gentile, or woman
Now don’t get it twisted a woman had to be honored
If you came from out of her womb you had to obey your momma
For the fact that she was a woman wasn’t the problem
It’s because she was forbidden to publicly read the Talmud
Plus only allowed to be either in the balcony-
Or on the floor divided to avoid problems
And forbade to pray out loud, when it came to religious life
For women it was grey outside, till Christ came in the picture
switched up some customs
Now these same women are providin’ Jesus with substance
Leavin’ Jewish men grieved, they ain’t agree
Cause out of these women’s means they ministered to their needs

(Verse Two)
Look at Jesus maneuva in spite of the culture
Taken ladies and shapin’ em makin’ em soldiers
Peep this type of behavior was taboo
Jesus seen with Joanna (Luke 8:13) would make Him a bad Jew
But Jesus called some of the grimiest women
Like prostitutes even some of the slimiest women
In hot pursuit, women are weak is not the truth
And just to prove this point ladies I got the proof
Wouldn’t be a Timothy without Timothy’s moms
Eunice speakin’ to Tim in them spiritual psalms
The way women were treated then these are similar times
But yet the men of God recognize ya strength
Who were the first witnesses of the empty tomb
Who birth Jesus being a virgin Holy Spirit consumed
Who stood for God way back in them Exodus times
And wouldn’t even let em kill they son (Exodus 1:16)

(Chorus)
Jesus did walk with women in a special way
This was odd for men in the first century
Look at God callin’ women to the ministry
Jesus did walk with the ladies

(Verse Three)

Da TRUTH: Just think about this
You’re real fit in Abercrombie and Fitch
And when you in the mall you thinkin’ about how to catch fish
Imagine you in Von Dutch on a date
No lust in the place, dude got a crush cause how you hustle your faith
You ain’t tryin’ be tuck at the waist
Cause you spend more time in the presence of God than adjustin’ your face
Listen let me cut to chase
And encourage the beauty of holiness you should just want to be chased

Flame: Ladies we know it’s real and it gets hard sometimes
Especially with the pressure of being flawless now
You can’t do enough crunches to be the perfect woman
God ain’t lookin’ for perfect size but a worshippin’ woman
Ok you gain weight maybe had an abortion
Made a mistake had a divorce and
It still ain’t over Jesus forgives this is the gospel
so don’t let that stuff stop you

Lyrics to News Flash :

(Verse One)
This is a pop pill culture we willin’ to try it
Anything from implantin’ plastic to the Atkin’s diet
We gone flap ’til we die like a fish from water
She’s lost in her sin that’s why you missin’ your daughter
This ain’t VH1 but here’s a fabulous life
With them spikes in the whip picture them stabbin’ the Christ
In a very vivid way I can imagine, the night
That’s why I’m sparkin’ the flames in the dark to flashin’ the light
I must admit there are some ones that wanna be changed
But they’re the ones callin’ MTV so they can be made
But we’re the ones callin’ Jesus so they can be saved
Saved from what? Sins penalty, the wrath and the grave
We’re so afraid to rep Christ we’re so embarrassed
Jesus is God and He took many lashes
With a legion of angels could have beat the masses
So the least I can do is speak the truth in these glasses

(Chorus- X2)
News flash homie dawg I’m droppin’ the dime
News flash homie I’m speakin’ Jesus’ mind
News flash homie I must mention the crime
I bring the bad news and the good news all at the same time

(Verse Two)
You can tell the size of a ship by the waves it leaves
Now who’s name has been made into a figure of speech
Now who’s death started over the beginning of time
A.C. actually in the beginning was God
And when it’s all said and died in the ending is God
Since we sinners we need repentance we’re defensive to God
Listen here’s a sample but I’m not just blaze
We just blaze for Christ not just on stage
Walk with us Jesus but not Kanye’s
The One that laid in the grave and raised in three days
Listen the term Christian dawg you might not like
But it’s the definition that’s in it and it is Christ like
So there it is we’d rather hear the cherubim’s wings flap
Then some of these raps being rapped
Just like your rims still spin even after your car stops
Then where will you spend eternity after your heart stops

(Chorus- X2)
News flash homie dawg I’m droppin’ the dime
News flash homie I’m speakin’ Jesus’ mind
News flash homie I must mention the crime
I bring the bad news and the good news all at the same time

(Verse Three)
These are God’s words consider me doin’ the ad libs
Tryin’ to get behind your stomach just to see where your abs is
In other words tryin’ to see who your dad is
It’s the inner darkness in your heart like Knight like Gladys
Are you posted on them blocks like them St. Louis cabs is
Are you starin’ at them rappers and you wishin’ you had his
Cribs, and money and women and fashion
Did you see that Source cover and read it with sadness
Those same rappers that were drawn like magnets
To chasin’ that stuff the same color as grass is
Might have to make that jailhouse they casket
And some will get out and continue to live backwards
But you want it cause it’s so attractive
And ignore the One keepin’ tabs on your track list
Dust to dust and ashes to ashes
I would ask for grace from Jesus’ passion

(Chorus- X2)
News flash homie dawg I’m droppin’ the dime
News flash homie I’m speakin’ Jesus’ mind
News flash homie I must mention the crime
I bring the bad news and the good news all at the same time

Lyrics to Limelight :

(Verse One)
Racism, rape victims, priest and sodomy
Street people perishing from street theology
Unlearned ministers criticize seminary
While without a vision people perish there’s no visionary
First class, second class, third class citizens
First Adam sinned then all became sinner men
Sweet like cinnamon for those who’ve been redeemed
And sour like lemons for those who have not been redeemed
Guns cocked in politics tell me truth is relative
We live in a time better to receive than to give
Videos are raising kids, lose your life over them rims
Little homies 13 smoking them Virginia Slims
Look at the poverty, taxes are robbin’ me
Jesus come father me, Honestly God there’s gotta be
Some type of dodging the internet and its pornography
Callin’ my Savior, my Lord, who’s offering me comradery

(Hook)
When truth hits the block the block should respond like
“Who is Christ?” let’s place Him in the Lime Light
Forget later ’cause now dirty the times right
The time is now the time is now

(Verse Two)
Horoscopes, palm readers, psychics, and astrologists
Liken themselves to havin’ knowledge yet it’s obvious
Post-modernism is taught in these secular colleges
Science and evolution are tryin’ to find the solution
Denyin’ the crucifixion, denyin’ the resurrection
Denyin’ the second comin’, they’ll die in their destitution
Picture blood drip from His pores hematidrosis
Jesus is God even demons know this
The winds and the waves even they obey yo
Death and the grave even they obey yo
Picture Him dressed in a robe dipped in blood
Eyes like blazin’ fire and equipped with love
Ridin’ a white horse with many crowns on His head
He’s comin’ back already resurrected from dead
Now as we partake of the Bread, think of the blood He shed
Picture the Passover the wonderful things that He did

(Hook)

(Verse Three)
According to the Scriptures concerning the day of judgement
A hush will reign and every secret made public
A just God will justify and bring justice
Either the gnashing of teeth but Jesus people will love it
And when you study them Scriptures sin and death are the effects of the Fall
And each aspect is affectin’ us all
So while God’s looking down we look up and we laugh
But humanity’s standing under the cup of His wrath
Since we seem to be so in love with reality shows
Then why is no one open to see what reality shows
Plus it’s hard for me to even see the faith of atheists
Who believe we evolved from apes, in place of His Sacredness
Plus without Christ we’re a guaranteed casualty
‘Cause instead of watchin’ our life we’d rather watch our calories
I know the truth will irritate like an allergy
I’m just tryin’ to open up hopin’ to show you reality

(Hook)

Lyrics to Videos :

(Verse One)
Little kids in the hood ain’t got no money or no clothes
They look at videos and see a Bentley or a Rolls
Cats rock so much ice even got the children froze
Glued to the tube with the screen touchin’ they nose
See a throw back jersey, them new shoes and they want those
They see how you dance they in the mirror strikin’ a pose
Little girls see how women dance and start takin’ off clothes
About 5 years old and this is all that she knows
This is all that he knows because that’s all that he sees
A new rap artist is ’bout all that he wanna be
Then you get cats like me that come to him talkin’ bout Jesus
They so brain washed they look at me and be like please
You try to convince them Jesus would want to see them saved
But they rather ball, rather hit the mall and get paid
About 16 now and homie is ready to drive
He is ready for sex but he ain’t ready for God
Check him out

(Hook)
Videos, T.V. is the city of dreams
And everything on the screen ain’t always what it seems
You might get fooled if you don’t know the truth from lies
That’s why we bringin’ you the truth of God

(Verse Two)
Call it all fun and games and sometimes it is
But other times got they mind in a quiz
Little homie skippin’ classes
Checked his ash tray for ashes
Plus he threw away his glasses
Now he think he need a chain and some Timberland boots
If she don’t look like the girls on the video she ain’t cute
Now he think he need a gun and he stay in the suburbs
Play any rap song and he know all the words
All of the dances, all of the shakes
Ain’t never seen a scale and he’s talkin’ bout movin’ weight
Now he let his pants sag and he’s tryin’ to get high
Ain’t never had a fight talkin’ about “thug til I die”
Ain’t never felt held the heat, ain’t never felt the heat
Now he’s tryin’ to go to jail so he can say he from the streets
Now this is what he sees and they call it entertainment
Mentally he’s in chains some of the blame goes to the videos

(Hook)

(Verse Three)
Videos don’t show how it is gettin’ beat
Or feelin’ so dumb in school that you feel you gotta cheat
Videos don’t show mamma jugglin’ money
Nor do they hear you when you say mamma I’m hungry
All they do is tease you with a Benz that’s so plush
But mom ain’t got no ends her and her friends on the bus
All they do is show you all cats on a yacht
While daddy’s in the streets after 3 smokin’ rocks
They don’t show you baby mammas baby daddies bout to bang
They sell you this world that exists outside of pain
All them cars lookin’ good all them cribs lookin’ good
But unfortunately that ain’t how it is in the hood
Real things goin’ down, real guns bustin’ rounds
Real tears bein’ shed, real cats and the feds
Real people that need Jesus to save them from they sins
To show them discipline then to die and rise again
They show you lies on videos

Lyrics to Real One :

[Verse One]
From these times now and back down to Biblical days
Counterfeit Jesus’ have raised in the ages
Searched the pages of the Biblion the Holy Bible not the holy quran
No, Jesus warns us what would come after
Matthew the 24th chapter
“For many will come in my name sayin’ ‘I am the Christ’”
But they’re really actors
Woe unto those who chose and teaches
A non-Biblical Jehovah Jesus
Woe, they might use the name but read in anotha’ meanin’
We must put a stop to the doctrine of demons
I must run this it might get hostile
We don’t want the Christ of Oneness Pentecostals
We want the incarnate Christ of the apostles
The pre-existent Son, the One of the gospel

[Hook]
We want the Real One, I teach the GodMan homie
Represented through Christians is the real Jesus
We want the Real One, I preach the GodMan whoodi
Represent the authentic and real Jesus
We want the Real One, I teach the GodMan son
Represented through Christians is the real Jesus
We want the Real One, I preach the GodMan dirty
Represent the authentic and real Jesus

[Verse Two]
You’re bound to drown in a broken ship
If your hope is in the Jesus of Joseph Smith
Woe, that doctrine will have your life stormin’
Come to the knowledge of Christ not to the one of the Mormons
Jesus is not Lucifer’s spiritual brother
And the heavenly Father did not have sex with his mother
Mary, scary I seen them two dudes in my hood
Tellin’ me God was a man at first and progressed to His Godhood
No, eternal is the Godhead
The Father has always been God that’s what the 90th Psalm says
Keep your eyes on Jehovah’s witness
Who mistranslates 1:1 of John in the Holy Scriptures
They say more to get your mind tangled
They deny Jesus is God but the incarnate Michael the archangel
If no angel was called the Son in Hebrews 1
Then why is Jesus called the Son (Verse One)
Everything that ya’ll did we done done before
And the measure ya’ll did it in we done done in more
Cats didn’t just start livin’ grimy
Death didn’t just start tryin’ to find me
Vest didn’t just start gettin’ slimy
Been in the streets and we know it’s real
Been in environments where cats done got killed
Over some drug money, see now it’s time to change the men-tal
Brothas is sellin’ they soul over bout ten thou
It’s goin’ down, we scream Jesus who is the soul saver
One who experience pain death resurrect as the price payer
We need you now cause you’re the way out
Left death and then stayed out
Look over life as the layout
The big picture, for so long afraid to accept what we need
One who would come down except He would bleed
Inject His seed in us, so many issues have been left untouched
So when Jesus left He left it to us
And I’m ready to bust

(Hook)
We need a way out
Take a look and examine the streets
The famine in streets
Young cats just be handlin’ heat
Don’t speak another word on how it’s hard
Unless you pointin’ me in the direction of the Lord
We know it’s real thats why we need a way out

(Verse Two)
I done been through hell, and then hell again
Most definitely been rejected I just held it in
So now I see what you see, plus I feel what you feel
So it goes without sayin’ that what is real is real
I done seen a cat lose his life
I done seen my mom lose her mind
Escape death like so many times
I live for Christ now, livin’ life is nice now
I live that heavenly lifestyle in my life now
So hard to see through you with the truth cause you tellin’ lies
And I can see to your heart straight through your eyes
That you frontin’, drug money is stealin’ your joy
Now you huntin’, lookin’ for somethin’ to give you some joy
Now peep game, call His name and He’ll save your soul
Watch you grow, slowly let go of struggles befo
And it’ll show, other brothas will follow your lead as the Holy Ghost
Draw you in close, and teach you His creeds
Cause we need a way out

(Hook)

(Verse Three)
You speak a lot about my area
Been here lately? It’s gettin’ scary and scarier
Tryin’ to tear down these barriers
In the midst of this I found Jehovah
I shout now before the storm’s over
They all drunk but I remain sober
Remain a soldier, in this ghetto livin’
won’t say I told ya, if you die un-forgiven
Offered you salvation, this crime we facin’ dawg is so real
Without Jesus dawg there’s no shield
Just open field, don’t have to leave so I can find peace
Mercy and grace follows behind me
Covered by blood keepin’ my mind eased
I trust God on a daily basis, in my ghetto places
Til I see better cases, off in my ghetto places
I must stay focused on the mark of the prize
Jehovah Shalome is where my faith lies
It’s crunch time, so don’t speak about the struggle
You share with us nothin’ unless you show us how to escape the hussl-in’
In this war zone

Lyrics to True God :

(Verse One)
I found something to be true when I
Made up my mind, to do what I had to do for God
Most of my, peeps started acting shice
When I mention the Christ, and when I mention even changing my life
I come around they like gone dawg
Check out my new song and they all like gone dawg
I look em’ straight in the eyes and say your wrong dawg
So I let it be known if that’s what you want then I’m gone dawg
I’ll pray for ya, but that’s exactly what I expect from that
Disrespect and neglect is what reflects from that
See these cats didn’t know God
He helped me to leave what’s weak so they can see, and that’s fa sho bru
Come on bru, I met the one who never change
Forever remain, always remaining the same
So I take the pain that’s gone make a mayne
And I stay in the thang, as I praise his name

(Chorus)
Its true God, none other faithful like you, Hallelujah
Can’t do me the way you do, knew it was true God
None other faithful like you hallelujah
It’s true God, hallelujah
It’s true God, true God

(Verse Two)
Thug cats you can just leave your piece behind
Cuz on this side it ain’t nothing but peace of mind
Why bust like blaw, when you can be with us and get a rush like wow
I think you better rush and get touched right now
Cuz you ain’t got to fuss you just hush right now
Until you learn enough to get rough like us
And tough like us
And learn enough word where you can right bust like us
Said He would never leave never forsake
My only guarantee that was never fake
In fa sho in the faith, and now I trust and I wait
And take his word, to be my guideline so I can face this world
I must brag and boast taste and see that He’s good fa sho
Grace and peace in the hood fa sho
So why fight with time, when you can be ignited and get right with God
And tight with God

(Chorus)

(Verse Three)
I exalt your name above all of the earth
You’re so majestic blessed with personal worth
That comes from You, when I’m hurt I run to You
My refuge is in You, cause I’m a fool for You
You kept me in the time of the storm
kept me when I wept as if I slept in Your arms
So now Lord I wanna be close and intimate commune with You
Perfectly in tune with You, like no otha
We can be closer than spiritual brothers
Closer than marriage, closer than lovers
No one can touch us, as I bow down
Take off my boots on holy grounds
finna clown now, feelin’ a praise down inside
Cause it’s personal
Givin’ us back everything that Adam’s sin stole
Thinkin’ of that just bless my soul
I let patience work its perfect work
My medication is to see a nation delivered from hurt
And that’s for real peeps

(Chorus)

Lyrics to From The Mid of the East Cypha :

(Da’ T.R.U.T.H.)
He’s in a class by himself, a league of His own
He’ll give life to the dead, He’ll breathe on your bones
He’s more than a homeboy, He’s king on a thrown
Now either love Him, or leave Him alone
But you can’t do both, it’s either or
The velvet or the iron door
The lamb or the lion that roars
The provider of the rider on the horse
He’s Yahweh, King, much more than a product in the store
Plus, He’s faithful and true
Waitin’ to come through, consume fools like a plate full of food
Eternal life, that’s a fate for the few
No breaking the rule, come on a roll like skateboarder dudes

(Phanatik)
Check the flavor my neighbor
You can raise your hand while I set the faiser to taiser
This is shock for you soul
A little rock and roll
Something to step to when you hit the block and stroll
So let’s lock and load
Word of God is the ammo
Armor of God, camo fatigues
Strategic Rambo maneuvers
Hand over land is the move, man
Stand soldier, firm in your faith
Time to do what He told ya
Hold up the 66 books
Stuck in the radio
Always trying to hit me with hooks, nope
Feeling my crew? Hallelu
This is how it sounds when Pilly goes down, mixed with the Lou
Ooh, try and listen
I, yes the Christian
Wide screen addition
In high definition
Coming soon
Like manana, sun and moon
That the ___________ for my peoples, like sunny tunes

(R-Swift)
So it’s one, two for my mic check
As I approach a world that Christ-less
Giving you good meat to digest
And I swear solidly the rock properly
Dropping non-stopily
Since the rock spotted me
Knocked me down, switched my flow game
Changed my identity from sinner to no-name
Introduced me to light
Gave my soul flame
Now its nothing but Gospel whenever I flow man
From Philly to the mid-west right thurr
My mic serves the Gospel to strike the right nerve
So when you finished with this cypha music
If the Cross ain’t done yet, then neither is the movement

(J-Silas)
His mercy, mercy’s
On me like the jersey
Royalty purple and gold like James Worthy
A trade’s been made, I ain’t worth a food stamp
Can’t stand on my own like I’ve got two cramps
Ain’t sinning, but I can, pray for me
You’re my brother right?
Then you’re able to pray for me
We all foolish, thinking we ain’t Judas
Help me Lord, Paul thought his sins were rudest
Stacey dashes, taking dashes clueless
makes me mad is us Christians act the cruelest
I got some knocks on my head from some Bibles
Gave some too, thank Christ for survival
Hearts deceitful
Making knowledge idols
Trunks in my eye and I can’t see my rivals
Cause they unseen, please remember
We don’t uproot, God yells timber

(Json)
This is the lost swift movement
From the mid to the east
To bring across truth to flame to the ears of the streets
My Bible’s my Tonic, I guess I’m a Phantik for Christ
Or Ambassador, slashin hearts with the Word of Tru-Life
Actually, He’s giving me what I need to survive
Cause Adam had to have branded us to the breed that would die
Thank Jesus, at least you can say that our hearts still ain’t hardened
He said This House I Shall Live, so right there my sins have been pardoned
It’s mercy, because we’re sinners saved by grace
If not, smell it like pee-ew, as J-Silas would say
The violence today is running rapid from the nature of sin
So we paint a picture of the Cross and pray the world will give in

(Thi’sl)
We set tracks ablaze
For the Rock of Ages
To free captive minds from locks and cages
This is hot off the press, fam
Flip the pages
Sin has a penalty, who paying the wages?
Its as clear as it gets, can’t get no clearer
Couldn’t get it closer to ya if you looked in a mirror
Unless your vision dirty fam, like grit on the mirror
Gritty, grimy, filthy, like spit on the mirror
Jesus’ blood cleansed us though like Windex on the mirror
‘till His image what we see when we look in the mirror
‘till His love is what you see when you looking at us
Black is blood is what it seem when God is looking at us

(E-Licia)
Oh, it’s outrageous, the Word of God is so amazing
Its time, let’s walk this way and let’s get to cypha God-blazin
Sin and death, I’m sick of it
We need His omnipotence
Stand against wickedness
With lifted fists and arms raised
It is my turn to spark this cypha
Its time to start this fire
The real Jesus walks with me
Even through the wire
He’s the true Messiah
He don’t care about a tire
You filthy rags, He makes clean
___________ He admires
I don’t need the blings
I rock the products of the Father
I hold onto this attire manufactured by Abba
Don’t need the Gucci
The phat ride, or the Prada
Cause my hand gesture welcomes God in like the Ramada

(Azriel)
He preach the Cross even when the legions mock
And we seek what’s pleasing God cause He’s the boss
Watching what we say like closed caption, believe it doc’
The world’s watching us like peeping tom’s
When we spit like teething tots
Thousands of heathens drop
And become dumb-founded like when speech is lost
Gospel emcees are rare like an equinox
Non-Christ-centered verses are grieving God
I don’t need the props
I was the sheep that’s lost
Then I met the good Shepard
His voice leads the flock
In this day and time Satan is taking lives like Ethan Hawk
So cling to God with tunes open, receive the plot

(Flame)
We scream enough truth that you’ve got to listen
I’m Flame, can’t take the heat, get out the kitchen
Christian cats are spittin’ Christ with the mic on
We ride through the dark with our high-beam lights on
The whole camp might be social martyrs
We preach with our life and are vocal artists
Jesus, welcome to Christ saints
Can I take your order?
I’ll have the bread of Heaven and the living water
We’ll stick together, God’s sons and daughters
Let us worship together, the God who called us
And we ain’t those cats after a platinum million
Cause just knowing Christ is that platinum feeling

Lyrics to Righteous :

(Verse One)
As I rightly divide, between truth and lies
I can present with proof how He knew these guys
Were goin’ to cry on Him, spit on Him and gonna lie on Him
Third day from layin’ away was gonna rise on them
Took His righteousness purged my sin
Blood drippin’ from the cross as He urges men
Some servin’ Him, puttin’ position to come and bird with Him
I mean to fly, most definitely want to fly
If I draw nigh to Him He’ll draw nigh to me
I see God through Him that d-e-a-t-h settin’ me
Straight from all angles, givin’ charge to all angels the star spangled
Banner doesn’t have anything on Hosanna
Cause the manner, in which He does things for His offspring
As awesome as it seems, it’s right and good
Cause I’m flossin’ the King tonight in ‘hoods

(Chorus)
Brothers in the front we don’t stunt cause we livin’ righteous
Homies on my left ain’t no death cause we livin’ righteous
Shorties in the back we don’t slack cause we livin’ righteous
Righteous livin’ righteous livin’
Homies on my right we alright cause we livin’ righteous
Brothers in the front we don’t stunt cause we livin’ righteous
Shorties on my left ain’t no death cause we livin’ righteous
Righteous livin’ righteous livin’

(Verse Two)
First I was unclean, it was so dark I was unseen
Now my light beams, runnin’ to Christ or it might seem
That I might cling, to the righteousness of the King
Or I might fiend, for the dream of the bigger things
Cause the earth is His, castin’ in my cares cause my hurt is His
Writin’ my songs and my verse is His
The body of Christ or the church is His
I search the Scriptures of God to see what my purpose is
To give Him glory now I recognize, I testified
Then I blessed the God that rectified
My wickedness when I was petrified, edified
The body of Christ for them kingdom lies
Or kingdom livin’ all of us Christians are forgiven for that awful livin’
To the beginners don’t assemble yourself with the sinners
All of us and Jesus are winners, now I look right
Cause of the blood now I look white
I’m goin’ higher in Christ so now I book flight

(Chorus)

(Verse Three)
All of a sudden His righteousness is like a lifestyle
Callin’ my brothers come outta strugglin’ to Christ now
All of you cluckers put down the drugs and throw the pipe down
Get rid of the sinful livin’ and come into life now
Take a look at the bigger picture and see mistakes made
Be a witness for Christians and see Christ has the way made
Way paved, the daybreak bru I stay saved
My wave praise, we set free from them slave days
Fightin’ with givin’, when you can be ignited and get righteous livin’
And right with God I take a look back into history
I’m seein’ the death no longer a mystery
Seein’ Him resurrect, my righteousness is that of a filthy rag
My righteousness is that of a filthy rag
My righteousness is that of a filthy rag
I confess I was guilty Dad
But then you cleansed me
