Lyrics to Identity Crisis Intro :

OH MY GOOOODNEEES/HEY, HEY/
Hey baby, lets get it/
It’s been a minute/but no worries folk I’m still in it/
I’m still with it/I ain’t going no where/
I’m a still be standing right here/even if they say they don’t care/
Now What’s Up/(what’s uuuuup)
Hey mane I’ll tell you what’s up/
Man sinned and sinned and in the end now our image’s messed up/
And (and) Identity’s damaged/happened all over the planet/
Not lost, but sure is blemished/now how we see is scrambled/
But God,
Being rich, in mercy, gave me living water when he saw that I was thirsty/
And I came (and I came) to the cross (to the cross) for the Lord and it ended my searching/
I was lost (I was lost) in a maze (in a maze) until His amazing grace/ (yeah)
And I got to the truth, and I found out what to do/I need to live by faith/ (yeah)
So I’m a work, like I’m pushing the cane/never giving in or giving up I’m all in this thang/
Giving everything I got, just to see who I am/on the cool lil’ buddy, I ain’t playing no games/
People trippin and they thinking that they life is straight/
Seeking peace while they saying that their life is great/
Steady looking for the answer with no words to say/
One clue plus proof, it’s the Imago Dei,
uh-uuh, the Imago Dei
Imago Dei (8x’s repeat)

Lyrics to Work :

Hook:
I Work/and I Press/and I do everything I can just trying to give these folks my best/
I Sweat/and I Grind/I used to try but learned that I can’t please these people all the time/
(Repeat 2x’s)

Verse 1:
Hey, what’s happening hommie/hey, hey, whaitdew mane/
Don’t know bout you but I’m working/trying to keep pressing mane/
In life/with rhymes/I fight with people pleasing/
That’s trife, this time/I’m fighting to please Jesus/
I’m done with it dog/all the lying and masquerading/
The fronting and the faking/I hate it, life feels so vacant/
I used to let ‘em make it/even if it got blatant/
No matter how flagrant, I’d let it slide like stealing bases/
But now I finally get it/so I aint ever quitting/
I can’t be passive, inactive like players that’s been injured/
Far from it/been hurt, been even knocked off my feet/
But I’m in Christ, and I want life like its suppose to be/

Hook

Verse 2:
When I ain’t know, who I was/everyday I wasted life/
Pagan days of people pleasing cause I wasn’t chasing Christ/
Worried bout the he say/she say / I’d repeat it like a replay/
I was chasing their approval like a runner in a relay/(GO)
I was believing that if I got it/no-doubt it’d be/all good/
But even if I got it/somehow it would/fall through/
I tried to keep standing/living by a weak standard/
Believing even Jesus received me based on my weak merits/
Lies from the pit/lies I won’t forget/
Lies that ruin lives and keep you blind to who you is/
Sinner saved by grace/through faith for Jesus sake/
So what you have count as loss as we press to see His face/

Hook

Verse 3:
Every Christians on the track/but are we focused like a skope/
Or are we racing never pacing/are we running to the goal/
Upward (upward) calling (calling)/full in (full in) knowledge (knowledge)/
Nothing hollow/like the lotto/true rewards/from God the Father/
Well we should be/no matter what they say, or even throw at us/
Keep rolling up, and pressing in/and showing folks you rest in Him/
See when it’s, all said and done, I wanna, be true in Christ/
I wanna, see fruit that’s proof to know it’s true to life/
So look to Him, give up everything to make it to Him/
To know Him fully/becoming holy as you pursue Him/
To all my saints, who know they saved/
But know there’s more to gain/
Keep pressing till the end when we will see Him face to face/

Lyrics to 26’s (Feat. Lecrae) :

Verse 1 (Tedashii):
Peep it, peep it/OH MY GOD!/
Pe-peep these people fiending/
Fiending to be seen as king and leaning/In they, CHROMED OUT CARS/
Ri-riding high, su-superfly/wood wheel, they grasp it tight/
Locomotive midnight strolling through Georgia/they Gladys Knight/
Tipping, neon glass is bright/switches make the back take flight/
Lay it down, raise it up/stu-stunting gives ‘em bragging rights/
All this so they swag is tight/idolatry for status right/
But they blind to the prison and the image that they living in/all this sin from Adam’s vice/
All of us we get this, yeah/distorted views of image, yeah/
Made in God’s likeness but despite this mankind is blemished, yeah/
So men chase them fancy cars/riding on them fancy bars/
All so they can get respect when we cruising down the boulevard/
So I grab the mic in here/just to bring some light in here/
Flip-flip the script just like a switch to spark this hit/bring Christ in here/
Since man can’t see who they should be/I’m a spit this so they can see/
Outside of Christ you’re bound for life/a slave to your Idolatry/

Hook:
(rap)
Self proclaimed kings bragging cause they on chrome/
but 26 inches is a pretty low throne/
(singing)
They riding on chrome/on chrome/on chrome/
A pretty low throne/low throne/low throne
On chrome/on chrome/on chrome
low throne/low throne/low throne

Verse 2 (Lecrae):
I see ya riding big, boy /
Like Andre and his friend, boy /
Got the SUV with the chromed out feet
and the seats is ostrich skin, boy
and naw that ain’t a sin, boy /
but tell me where it ends, boy /
cause the truck don’t bring you luck and sho nuf ain’t goin pay yo sins, boy /
gone head worship that tin toy
and in the end watch crumple like tin foil /
is that what you really wanna live for, do you read me, dawg?
Is that 10-4? You spent 10-4 for chrome, bruh
but Jesus still don’t know ya /
You worship that cold steel and still ya heart is colder /
can’t say we ain’t told ya / we told you like we sposed ta /
The rims don’t derve that prase but the one who does hung like a posta /
you post up on the block so the girls they flock
when they see you ridin by, the boys see ya ridin
high and you the one that they admire
now if ya set jacked and crash that whip
that’ll hurt you pride, yo status stripped /
you thought your car could bless you like it’s God
but no my father is /
Idolatry it bothers Him
and when they make some hotter rims /
Your gods gets rusty so you change religions like Madonna did

Hook

Verse 3 (Tedashii):
They look hard/like OH, GOD!, and you make them they say/who that?/
So you look hard/like you God, all the while you ain’t really got a/ clue that/
E-ve-ry-thang/(thang) was made for the king of kings/
True that/through the only name, higher than every name/
You don’t get it then you maybe wanna/move back/
Yeeeeah, I’m trying to tell ya mane/Yeeeeeah, I’m trying to warn ya dog/
You can play me to the left/like I’m dribbling to the right and get defensive/but sin will scorn you dog/
Leave you marred in your vision/all scarred like incisions/
Men marked like in prison/that ain’t all dog/
Pretty soon there’s an idol/assuming the Lord’s title/
Like He’s idle/but He’s more like a sawed-off/
When it comes, to His glory/
Man please believe me, BOY, He’don’t play that/
This is more, than metaphors/
Man this is the truth so baby, BOY, where your faith at/
Let me help, it should be in One who provides/
Better yet, the only One who could save our lives/
Cause the things on this earth/shouldn’t be placed first/
Over Him, the only One who gave us His life/
But on the cool (on the cool)/it ain’t sin (it ain’t sin), if you ride rims ( ride rims)/(ugh-uhh)
Make it do (make it do)/what it do (what it do)/but whatever you do, don’t idolize them/
But if you have (if you have)/then repent/turn back now cry out to Him/
Commandment one, demands that none, be placed above this God in here/

Lyrics to Hollywood (Feat. Rozie Turner) :

Verse 1 (Tedashii):
Remember when we were kids/saying things that were did/
By me and you but too ashamed to admit that th-th-they were fibs/
Sippin’ on Mr. Pibb/playing with neighbors kids/
And I front to fall asleep/so I could chill at your crib/
House parties like play and kid/listening to Gangster Nip/
Tripping off Ghetto Boys/how they mind kept playing tricks/
Hide and seek with my sisters friends/Tonight like DJ Quick/
Natural born sinners slowly loosing our innocence/
This was all just the start of it/like working with a starter kit/
I went from bad to worse when I saw Cube put on that Starter fit/
Pressure started marching in/cause all my friends were part it/
It seduced me even more/like a girl who plays hard to get/
“Cool” gave my heart a kiss/told me, give my all to this/
Did it all/so I felt obligated to be part of this/
Anything to garner this/stardom that was hard to miss/
Fartherless, so Hollywood guided, through the dark abyss/

Hook (Rozie Turner):
Stepped in the cineplex/just passed the Cinnabon fin to see what’s playing next/(yes)
HOLLYWOOD/
(HEY) I got my butter and my popcorn/my crew is with me and we feeling like it’s not wrong/
HOLLYWOOD/
Like it’s so cool to watch upcoming attractions, blinded by the distractions/Don’t be so complacent/
with cheap imitations/need godly inspiration so we can’t replace it, with HOLLYWOOD/

Verse 2 (Tedashii):
Remember when we were kids/saying things that were did/
By me and you but too ashamed to admit that th-th-they were fibs/
Hooping up at the gym/lust had us chasing Kim/
Acting hard but riding clean bumping that BoysIIMen/
Watching the latest films/Quote it and take it in/
Lustful flesh/had us actin gangsta like Doughboy did/
Lived like them/boys in the hood but stayed trill/
Out the Tre, so you can say I’m Furious Styles kid/
My Love Jones was shai/but my Justice was Poetic/
All I needed was the Juice/and then my Blues would be Mo’ Better/
I would listen to the Preacher’s Wife/but I’d go back like Boomerang/
My set would Set It Off and we’d be right back in that New Jack swang/
Pride of Life had me like O-Dog and Higher Learning guided me/
Momma said Lean On Me/but I’m a Menace to Society/
All that “drama” mixed with sinning, the women with them in linen/
Seem to spark a cycle unrivaled and never ending (ending)/

Hook

Verse 3 (Tedashii):
I been learning from this teacher, since/I was in the nursery/
A victim of its preaching cause she said she’d give the world to me/
At least that’s what I thought I heard/Hollywood was celebrated/
She could easily mess up the lines of real and imitation/
And like Adam, we ate the fruit of prideful racketeering/
Just so we could all see Eve without the leaves/and bangled earrings/
It’s the lies that they tell you, you start to believe/
And if truth is what you make it/then you’re ready to receive/
A slave to the trade/sinful ways cause of this artistry/
Until I met the One, who was knocking at my hearts entry/
Some say He’s unattractive when compared to the glitz and glam/
But, I was glad to look behind the bush to see a ram/
Who set me free from sin, along with false identity/
Because until we know the Savior, God is our enemy/
So don’t let the world and its devices, advise you/
Instead trust the truth of the Father found in the bible/

Lyrics to Make War (Feat. Flame) :

Intro (John Piper):
I hear so many Christians, murmuring about their imperfections, and their failures, and their addiction, and their shortcomings. And I see so little war! Murmur, murmur, murmur. Why am I this way? Make War!

Verse 1 (Tedashii):
Bang with me/ba-bang bang, ba-bang with me/
No more playing games mane/cause this thang can get risky/
So mane if you in Christ/TAKE UP!!/your cross quickly/
Stand fearless on the frontline/time to come with it/
Do the right thing/WAKE UP!!/and lets get it/
I ain’t even in the ring/they throwing bows like Riddick/
Persistently attacking me/they’re even in the back of me/
It’s either fight or loose my life and I can’t take this passively/
So what you think I’m bout to do/I’m bout to do what I can do/
Trust the ONE who got me through/and fight like it was after school/
Never giving up/steady, standing on the battle field/
Feet firm to the ground like I stepped on Chappel Hill/
Flesh feeling frisky, sin persuades and tempts me/
Satan cheers me on/guilt followed by conviction/
It’s the same ol’ trap/and we fall like we defenseless/
Work your senses/grow in wisdom/stand firm and be relentless/

Hook:
I MAKE WAR!/Cause sin never sleeps/
It’s got me in a trance/you can see it in my dreams/
I MAKE WAR!/Man I beat my flesh/
to the death/every breath/like I beat my chest/
I MAKE WAR/sun up/
I MAKE WAR/sun down/
I MAKE WAR/time in/
I MAKE WAR/time out/
I MAKE WAR/against lust/
against pride/against me/until I die/

Verse 2 (Flame):
Do you even have a clue
What happened to you when He died
When that tomb got rolled when He rose in the sky
I think we emphasis sin so much
That it makes us paralyzed
And glorify struggle so much
That it makes us terrified
And deemphasize the fact that we have been sterilized from our own lives and thus
We gotta snap out of it
We aint in no straight-jacket
We free
When Jesus died in our lives something strange happened
He gave us power
Yeah I know that we sinners but since He rose He’s renewing the image of God in us
Now, we gotta start making war
Now we can start saying no
To them fleshy impulses that Jesus Christ is paying for
Now we can start taking the lead
Just like the Dalai Lama and start going all out like a suicide bomber
Whatever the sin is we gotta go go go harder
By His grace no time to waste and just just just like there’s no tomorrow

Hook

Verse 3 (Tedashii):
I’m a Christ representer, fin to stand and deliver/
cause a lot of my believers struggle with their agenda/
so I dropped this on an ADAT/just so you could come play back/
a hit to be encouraged that rocks you with truth from, way back/
so listen up to it ASAP/like you do a Lecrae track/
I’m spittin’ written visions to put on heads like a wave cap/
sinning, nawl we don’t play that/cause that’s the way that a slave acts/
I’m filled with the Spirit so tell them dog this is pay back/
as you begin to copy the carbon copies of Christ/
and conform to His written image you should be shinning a light/
if you not, why is that?/
is it fear that’s been grippin’ you/cause you scared they’ll be dissin’ you/
flipping birds while that spit at you/
if you not, why is that?/
it don’t matter so bump it/perfect love cast out fear and He ain’t save us for nothing/
this is a privilege (privilege)/your life to give to Him (give to Him)/
so stand firm for Him dawg and lets get it in/

Lyrics to Gotta Believe (Feat. Diamone) :

Verse 1:
Folks having hard times/living in the world so cold/life dealt them cards now/people trying hard not to fold/pressures their heart now/feels like they bout to explode/while feeling down they asking, “Is this the life that I chose?”/it seems so unfair/man we just trying to survive/but its like no one cares/we living life just to die/and when I come share/that Jesus cares about your life/their heart is hard, they disbelieve/and they filled with too much pride to cry out/LORD/I surrender my all, or cry/LORD/will you answer my call/cause this life is not easy/God why I gotta be me/it’s hard for me to trust cause when I do somebody leaves me/see, life without Christ is not life, it’s daydreaming/Day in and Day out/I see people sitting, thinking, drinking tall/Day in and Day out/I see people sitting, thinking, drinking tall ounces/trying to figure out, why is this the way the ball bounces/

Hook:
Everywhere I go its still the same song/everybody ge tting by, trying to hold on/to a life that He gives/doubting who is/don’t doubt, don’t doubt/you gotta believe/ (Repeat 2x’s)

Verse 2:
LORD peep the hood child/rocking Ones with an ice grill/folks say he should smile/his mug’s mean cause life is/he wants that good life/a caddlac truck with nice rims/and the culture says to get it live like the thugs live/a hustlers ambition/since the day he was born/I wished it was different/is this place really the norm/so when I go witness/God’s forgiveness seems foreign/and his heart is dark, he disagrees and he’s filled with too much scorn to cry/LORD/will you take me as I am or cry/LORD/can you make me a new man/cause this life is so greasy/God why I gotta be me/why can’t I be that dude I saw rapping on the tv/questions by some who blind to the grace that freed me/Day in and Day out/I see people sitting, thinking, drinking tall/Day in and Day out/I see people sitting, thinking, drinking tall ounces/trying to figure out, why is this the way the ball bounces/

Hook

Verse 3:
This world is gone pass away/so LORD my prayer is they get it/your could probably come back today/and a lot of these folks just might miss it/caught up in their worldly ways/not knowing they could change in an instance/it just takes faith to get in this/but it’s been replaced by religion/so cats remain blind/thinking that their works just might save/some just stay high/thinking there’s no way you would take ‘em/saying it’s a hard life/complaining when I go witness and/I ask them, what if God did this so He could get your attention/So you’d cry/LORD/I confess and believe/or cry, LORD/I see it’s you that I need/cause change is so hard/and life is mean in these streets/and it seems there is no God/but see since Adam and Eve/mankind is so lost/confused on the path they should walk/and so……/Day in and Day out/I see people sitting, thinking, drinking tall/Day in and Day out/I see people sitting, thinking, drinking tall ounces/trying to figure out, why is this the way the ball bounces/

Lyrics to Identity 2: Adoption (Feat. Rick Trotter) :

Hook (Rick Trotter):
Come and listen to a story that gots to be told
A boy left by his father in a world so cold
Til the good news told him that he had been chose
And this is how the story goes, story goes

Verse 1 (Tedashii):
Natural born evil to reborn group of people/how does He do it/
call him-call him the redeemer/
there’s no equal/He’s higher than every creature/
in heaven or hell, and the earth can’t hold Him either/
He’s so regal/out soars every eagle/
I’m so impressed with Him I’ll be looking for His sequel/
His names Jesus/in case you missed it here’s the prequel/
this God-man was the lamb used so God could free us/
so here’s my thesis/through faith we’re like a fetus/
reborn and adopted through Christ, that’s how He sees us/
with good reason He embraced us and received us/
He guarenteed it even before time had a season/
I can’t believe it/it feels like I’m dreaming/
entitled to every right/co-heir to the kingdom/
it’s truly legal/God rigged it so we would need Him/
He’s the father I always wanted, I know He’ll never leave me

Verse 2 (Tedashii):
wheew/now here we go/truth up in a trilla flow/
the word became flesh and then Flesh was fleshed our among us bro (Jesus)/
all knowing Savior/the savior straight from the making/
that can see inside our hearts to get past the faking/
ain’t no lying, ain’t no cheating, ain’t no hiding, he can see you/
He knows everything about us, ain’t no secrets/
He knows what’s inside of man/all the lies inclined to man/
all wise, all seeing/still He chose to abide in man/
I’m blown away when I think on how my soul was saved/
Like a movie I can see it/like it was yesterday/
caught up in a major way/sort of like I had a date/
God booked the appointment and rigged it in a player way/
Grace through faith did more than just account for me/
it placed me in His family and gave me my identity/
who am I/I’m a child of the King/
co-heir with the Savior/adopted and redeemed/

He gave me a brand new life
Forgiven me of all I’ve done
He’s not only a king He’s my Father (My Father yeah)

Lyrics to I’m A Believer (Feat. Trip Lee & Soyé) :

I’m a Believer feat. Trip Lee, SoYe’

Intro:
I’m a believer
we gotta let them know
hey
to all GODS people
I’m a believer

Verse 1 (Tedashii):
This right here don’t make no sense/you ain’t gotta guess baby that I’m His/
Crucified, died, now alive in Him/I done put my faith in Him hommie till the end/
Now the new life, I live in Christ/It’s because of Him, ya boy shine so bright/
You can keep the ring and the chains and the ice/camps main campaign ain’t to pop champagne/that’s lame/
No game hommie I rep Christ/you can peep my lyrics and the way that I write/
I surrendered everything, even my rights/I count it all lost just so I can know Christ/
Or better yet baby so that He can know me/as a son coming home from prodigal to free/
Free from my sin that’s the end of my grief/I’m a believer so best believe this me/
Even at the cross Jesus took my place/He didn’t deserve it, I guess that’s what you call faith/
I did deserve it, I guess that’s what you call grace/He did it for certain and garaunteed my place/
In Him, and then seated me on high/in the end baby I’ll be caught up in the sky/
On a dime, in the twinkling of an eye, I’ll be found in the air with my saviour Jesus Christ/

Hook
I’m a believer
I’m a believer no doubt
I’m a believer yeah yeah
I’m a believer hear me out yeah
I’m a believer hey
I’m a believer hey hey

he came in my life
and i never thought twice
he’s all that i have
and I’m willing to fight
i stare at them like

that I’m a believer

Verse 2 (Trip Lee):
Some might know me as a rapper some might know me as a southern dude
Others as a black man, but first I got another crew
Ever since I heard the Gospel message how the Son was bruised
I got a new identity, it’s like your boy’s another dude
We ain’t undercover brother, come and see us trust the truths
That we stand under brother, other things adjust and move
Some say we dumb for trusting Christ, they say we just some fools
But you can check His grave if you want it proved, ooh
We ain’t perfect at all nah we recognize this life’s hard
The difference is instead of drowning, we trust the life guard
We fight hard, but with the right perspective as we walk this
It’s Christ, He works in us like a office, so I’m a believer

Hook

Verse 3:
(Tedashii)
So in the end, hey this is me/I ain’t that cat that you seen on TV/
I ain’t that rapper, model, actor, baller/none of them defines me/
I’m a believer, known to the One that exist in three/
Co-heir to the kingdom, that means I’m the king’s son/partner that’s what defines me/
Identity/crucified, choose to die, now the life that I live not I/
But it’s this flesh, He laid to rest/through faith by grace I live through Christ/
(Trip Lee):
I’m quite sure your mama told you not trust just anybody
But tell me who is like the Lord? Not anybody
I took a look at Him in the Scriptures, this really got me
He keeps His promises, even though cats be living sloppy
Look at His love, and His grace, and His just mercy
I was dirty, till I trusted Him who’s trustworthy

Lyrics to Fresh :

Verse 1:
Yes, on a permanent team/
You can say I’m fresh to death, I’m eternally clean/
Used to walk to by own beat of drum/
Internal instinct/
But went from enemy to intimacy, I been redeemed/
Through the cross and now I floss in His Paternal Regime/
No more living single/its like I done turned on Regine/
In the body I got it/wha-what fraternity means/
He prevailed my hell so there will be no burning of me/
So keep the urn and the wreath/cause I’ll return to the king/
Accepted fully cause of the crosses conversion of me/
So if I flex/it ain’t in flesh/He bore my burden for me/
And baby when I say I’m fresh/
Its cause He birthed a new me/

Hook:
I’m Fresh/not because my swagger right/
not be-not because/not be-not because my swagger right/
I’m Fresh/cause He came and took the cross/
I can’t floss unless my boast is in the cross/
I’m Fresh/

Verse 2:
I’m fresh/baby, cause of Adam #2/
Crucified with Him/and by faith/man He made me brand new/
Point two/the cross was powerful in changing my view/
Regenerate, all my boys say I’m acting brand new/
And its true/so true/cause I’m not what I used to be/
Somehow I got this boost in me/
Truthfully, I’m not used to me/
Please believe me I’m humble/but in Christ I can boast/
See it’s grace through faith that’s got ya boy so cold/
So cold, and I ain’t trying to be cocky/
No confidence in compliments, I know that’s opposite godly/
See conceit is not my stronghold/confidence is strong though/
Trust on high, and I don’t mean that Cheech and Chong smoke/

Hook

Verse 3:
To some this makes no sense but to others its krunk/
So dawg I pray to God you feel this like them subs in ya trunk/
Not just the beat/although I know its got you moving ya body/
But the message in this song/it should be moving the body/
Point 1, I’m elected and redeemed/
Point two/cause I got a new position, I’m fresh, so clean/
Point three/I’m the-I’m the best me that can be/
I’m in His image so some sinner may just happen to see/
That life is wasted if you shape it in the form of yourself/
Or someone else besides the Son, the One who’s form is this shell/
So I’m reflecting your glory LORD/
Man that’s who I’m living for/
Jesus is LORD so I ain’t gotta please you

Lyrics to Thank You :

Verse 1 (Tedashii):
I see kids,
Wildin’ out/they pops was out/I see it like a flash back/
That empty life/now in Christ, I finally got my Dad back/
God was that He snatched me back He got me off that fast track/
Of chasing dreams and manish things/like power, pleasure, and respect/
Taught me that a selfish view, never was a healthy view/
Here’s some help for you who struggle too, living past that/
Selfish gain or selfless aim, hey baby they gone clash black/
Worldly wisdom or scripture, it ain’t but one that has facts/
Tried it all, all alone, but found that I was handicapped/
Strength I lacked/abused by this world you can have it back/
See the fact remains I was changed when I heard His name/
I know He’s real/and I’ll never be the same/

Hook (G.P.):
I’m in love with one hand in the sky/
I’m looking at the the cross with both of my eyes/
I know I was born into sin/but now I’m in Christ yes I’m born again/
I know, I know, that Jesus lives/
And I know, I know He is my King/
And that’s why, that’s why I’ll always sing/Jesus
Thank you for saving my life/
uh-oh, uh-oh-uhoh, uh-oh/uh-oh, uh-oh-uhoh, uh-oh/
uh-oh, uh-oh-uhoh, uh-oh/(HEY) thank you for saving my life/

Verse 2 (Tedashii):
See with us evident, most of us, we hope; I know, to get inside/
We expect to be in heaven but baby we gotta die/
Die physically and inwardly/but some men will be/
Foolish in their ways and trust they self continually/
Growing in their pride, eyes closed so they can’t see/
Walking blind all the time, too arrogant to see their need/
I can hear the preacher preach, reaching out to you and me/
Begging us to look to Jesus and no longer be deceived/
Cie-Cie-cieved, by the enemy/
or the sin in me/that says to be sufficient independently/
I’m so glad to be walking on the straight and narrow/
I know that God got me if his eye is on the sparrow/

Hook (G.P.):
I’m in love with one hand in the sky/
I’m looking at the the cross with both of my eyes/
I know I was born into sin/but now I’m in Christ yes I’m born again/
I know, I know, that Jesus lives/
And I know, I know He is my King/
And that’s why, that’s why I’ll always sing/Jesus
Thank you for saving my life/
uh-oh, uh-oh-uhoh, uh-oh/uh-oh, uh-oh-uhoh, uh-oh/
uh-oh, uh-oh-uhoh, uh-oh/(HEY) thank you for saving my life/

Verse 3 (Tedashii):
So from the newest life, the truest life/I know that He’s real/
from the changes in my stride to the way that I feel/
Something different, you sense it/even momma was trippin’/
Wondering like Alice asking me, hey boy what’s gotten in you/
I said, JESUS IS REAL (HEEEY)/this ain’t just a religion/
I done tried to practice habits but man nothing was sticking/
But His love and His joy and the peace that He brings/
Man was dead in sin till Jesus came on the scene/
Now it’s a WRAP/for ya boy/no more, quiet on set/
I’m telling everyone I know/I ain’t ashamed to represent/
I love Him/no one above Him/I’ll forever worship/
Hands high to the sky/as I show my love to Him/ (SING)

(Kids):
uh-oh, uh-oh-uh-oh-uh-oh (3x’s)
Jesus, thank you for saving my life/

Hook (G.P.):
I’m in love with one hand in the sky/
I’m looking at the the cross with both of my eyes/
I know I was born into sin/but now I’m in Christ yes I’m born again/
I know, I know, that Jesus lives/
And I know, I know He is my King/
And that’s why, that’s why I’ll always sing/Jesus
Thank you for saving my life/
uh-oh, uh-oh-uhoh, uh-oh/uh-oh, uh-oh-uhoh, uh-oh/

Lyrics to All I Need (Feat. Chris Davis) :

Intro:
I see You’re all I need/Father God I see you’re all I need/ (All I need)
God, God you’re all I need/to tell the truth LORD you’re all I need/ (All I need)

Verse 1 (Tedashii):
They said I was going crazy on the campus when You saved me/
Cause I stopped partying, chasing all the ladies/
And they told me I was loosing it/calling me a lunatic/
Because, for you, that world; I told them I was through with it/
Man I heard the rumors/calling me a joke/
I’m praying saying, I wish they knew what I know/
Cause if they did they would see, how you were meant to be/
Much more than the god of emergencies/
You’re the God that elected me/chose, and selected me/
When nobody else would mess with me/
Never neglected me/you even loved me when you corrected me/
Hands down you’re the best to me/
I spent years of my life/trying to be liked or be like the people who seemed to be liked/
Following the crowd, trying to be allowed/Into a world where every thing seemed right/
But,

Hook (Chris Davis):
I wrote this song to tell you LORD you’re all I need/(You’re All I Need)
(God)/And I know you’ll never fail me LORD/you’re all I need/
And when the time gets crazy and my vision gets hazy Father/You’re all I need/(You’re all I need)
When my life needs saving/or the world starts to cave in/around me you’re all I need/(You’re all I need, You’re all I need)

Verse 2 (Tedashii):
From saving me to raising me, shaping me and changing me/
Embracing me, taking me, making me yours/
Amazingly and graciously when I was lost and wavering/
Couldn’t get from A to B/you opened the door/
I deserved to be left there/in distress with the rest there/
Right there in my mess yeah/
Still believing all the lies/the world can satisfy/
I almost died, pushing you to the side/
What a fool, making crazy moves/about to lose, all I had for a buzz and a thrill/
We too easily satisfied and that’s just how Adam died, He was in the place where the love wasn’t real/
But the more I get to know You/the more I get to know truth/
And through you I see who I am/
My identity revealed as you show me how to live, through the example of the God-man/
That’s why,

Hook (Chris Davis):
I wrote this song to tell you LORD you’re all I need/(You’re All I Need)
(God)/And I know you’ll never fail me LORD/You’re all I need/
And when the time gets crazy and my vision gets hazy Father/You’re all I need/(You’re all I need)
When my life needs saving/or the world starts to cave in/around me you’re all I need/(You’re all I need, You’re all I need)

Outro (Tedashii):
You’re all I need/Father God I see you’re all I need/ (All I need)
God, God you’re all I need/to tell the truth LORD you’re all I need/ (All I need)
And when the time gets crazy and my vision gets hazy Father/You’re all I need/(You’re all I need)
When my life needs saving/or the world starts to cave in/around me you’re all I need/(all I need)

Lyrics to Identity 3: The Church :

Hook 1 (Rick Trotter):
(Go Through the Motions)
Steppin’ in and I’m checkin’ out the scene,
Fresh pressed, creased out, man you know yo’ boy be clean (clean);
Hand claps, toe tappin’ while the choir raise a song,
Folks shoutin’ now the reverend’s up you know it won’t be long
Passa holler bout a hour and I’m thankin’ bout the game
People peepin at the clock (whoop) every Sunday it’s the same
Alter call, preacher’s hoopin’, church open up the doors
Leave a tip then I dip, next week I’m back fo’ mo’
Church!

Verse 1 (Tedashii):
Steppin’ out the house so fresh, clean/
Tailored suites and gator boots/Italian names in the inseam
summer heat encumber teens, forced to wear them pants with pleats/
Sunday morning uniform/like we soldiers, like Marines/
off to Sunday School with mama ‘nem/like it was a job for them/
I’d hear the same Word but different meanings like with homonyms/
time and time again/cause I’m praying that the time would end/
man Saturday must be my crime/my Sunday’s doing time again/
you feel me man, I know you do/some of y’all still going through/
most of us just learn the motions just so we can make it though/
I mean, no one ever showed us how this thing was vital for life/
and that the church was not a building/but the body of the Christ/

Dialogue (Jacki Walker):
Man, you hear that?
Did you hear that?
It’s so dope.
But we just don’t get it.
Something this good……man.

Hook 2 (Rick Trotter):
(Go through the motions)
Same time each week
Jesus must know me
‘Cause I’m heatin’ up a seat
In the church, church
(Sunrise, eleven thirty
You can be late but don’t leave early)
(Go through the motions)
The Devil is a hater
He can’t touch me
‘Cause I’m blessed and highly favored
Church, church
(I’ve got to be in that place
Sunday I’m go’n show my face in the church)

Spoken Word (Ron Surgeon):
The Church, chosen in Christ in eternity.
The Church is not a building, it’s breathing.
Maturing Christians in communal living, helping babes that are teething.
You can have perfect attendance in the seat of the building and not be apart of this.
You can attend the building and not be apart of the body of Christ… it’s obvious.
I’m blessed and highly favored and because of this Jesus Christ is blessed and highly treasured. The greatest gift that God could give is God… so see and savor Him!

Lyrics to Community (Feat. Stephen the Levite & Sho Baraka) :

Verse 1 (Stephen the Levite):
I remember before my church started/a season that I called the darkness/
saved but still living in bondage/not know the problem was not just my pride and lust, but that life was so autonomous/
but at Epiphany I had an epiphany/realizing community was the way it was meant to be/
WHY?/In the beginning He who gave us identity was, eternally, co-existing as the Trinity/
Saying/it’s not good for man to be alone/it’s impossible for him to model us on his own/
He gave man a companion not a clone/commanding reproduction, expansion, and a throne/
And now/the new Adam is starting it all over/sparking it with bride who glorifies Jehovah/
Submit/you wanna know who you are then know your role cuz/your ID’s in Christ and Christ is part of a whole bruh/

Hook:
Back back them church boys are back/oh!
That’s that the new life is that/oh!
FOTU with my crew till He comes back/oh!
Live in community/walk in community
Back back them church boys are back/hey!
That’s that the new life is that/hey!
FOTU with my crew till He comes back/hey!
Live in community/walk in community

Verse 2 (Sho Baraka):
Before Real Talk were Ambassadors chopping/
up that milk and meat, having all things in common/
before church planting was an option/
before the albums start dropping/
we were in community stomping/
patience with your boy when I was loud and obnoxious/
before I turned my life up in at a concert/
Before I learned the truth over nonsense/
Before I hit a stage they were caution/
Accountability, yeah awesome not produce a man selfish or pompous/
Know the process of Learning the scriptures in its context/
Bible study sometime it made me nauseous /
But know I never grow sick of spitting up those synoptics/
Constantly keeping others upon my conscious/
Being honest not just robbing them of their knowledge/
Promise to serve one another in righteous conduct/
Its common sense I’m something like a communist.

Hook:
Back back them church boys are back/oh!
That’s that the new life is that/oh!
FOTU with my crew till He comes back/oh!
Live in community/walk in community
Back back them church boys are back/hey!
That’s that the new life is that/hey!
FOTU with my crew till He comes back/hey!
Live in community/walk in community

Verse 3 (Tedashii):
Give me a sec just to put it in perspect/
He’s God/and He deserves more than just your check/
He deserves your breath/every one you’ll ever get/
We deserve death/something (by grace) we’ll never get/
So, hands/, devoted/, cause He rose and beat death/
We could be right handed but we all went left/
See in order to redeem me He gave up Himself/
So I’m laying on the alter till they lay me to rest/
What you expect/man we give God our best/Plus,
Knowing Him, is how we know our, self/So,
We learn of Him in the way that He set/
Up, so we can get it/Christian fellowship/
As I imitate God and conform more to Christ/
In the bond of community/I look more like/
Him (Him), Him (Him), and the image I was meant to have/
Praise God for the Church/showing me just me who I am/

Hook:
Back back them church boys are back/oh!
That’s that the new life is that/oh!
FOTU with my crew till He comes back/oh!
Live in community/walk in community
Back back them church boys are back/hey!
That’s that the new life is that/hey!
FOTU with my crew till He comes back/hey!
Live in community/walk in community
