Album: Once Upon a Time
Used to be very very sacred
It is now a tragedy the way it's become basic
Tell me that it's not real, tell me it's the Matrix
Tell me that we still believe that marriage is the place for it
Didn't pay for your sins
But we don't know that we worship it when we brag about rims
And ice, you know Jesus Christ? yea He paid the price
For your sins with His sinless life but
Now that is what we choose
Floating on the alcohol, intoxicated cruise
With the liquor, But you don't only kill your liver
You point a loaded gun to your soul and pull the trigger
Call me extreme
But I am part of a team
Serving out the soul food because the world is lean
I am part of a team that loves Jesus Christ
And man I hate it when Jesus cries
Class is in session, this is soul college
A little soul food, a little soul porridge
No more blinded by the flash of the glitz
No more guided by the fashion and hits
Ghanaians, and Japanese, Americans and Russians
Everybody's getting it, it's even right behind you!
Mind you. This one no be swine flu
Let me let my rhymes do, something to remind you
That now it is time to, step over the line you drew
For God never to cross it
But He is so familiar with crosses and not forgetting
Thorns on His head, sores on His feet
Wounds on His back, insults from the streets
Stop the beat.
We forget we're alive because He died
We always forget that we can laugh because He cried
But sometimes I can still hear Him cry
Screaming "is this why I came down to die?
"For you to just kill yourself with sins?
For you to forget me and choose material things?
I destroyed the earth before, for the same reasons
But this time I chose to die, on the cross - bleeding...."
This is why I love Jesus Christ
And this is why I hate it when Jesus cries....
