They'll beat you
Hate you
Ridicule you
But I don't care
Cuz if I give in
To mediocracy
It's death's captivating snare
You scream
You cry
You run
But this deal with the Devil
Can never be undone
Cuz if I give into this
I start banging with drugs
Start hanging with thugs
Cutting my wrists
Pounding my fists
Do I like getting smacked?
You can't call that!
This vow that I made
Do I regret this?
But I can't really say
Cuz it sounds like diss
Cuz He was saving my life
While you were getting high
But when the Lord come back
I'll be raptured in the sky
You say he's an ass
You say she's a bitch
But it don't mean much
When it coming from your lips
Cuz we all had the whip
We he bled on the limb
Yea he was nailed to a tree
To save you and me
Jesus set us free
So the same we'll never be
So when they say that you crazy
Kinda looking hazy
When you pray too much
Thanking Jesus for a daisy
Oh lift up your eyes
Yea lift up your head
Cuz when Stephen got stoned
Yes this is what he said:
He looked to the sky
Saw the King in his eye
Thought of G.W. when he said
He'd never tell a lie
These babies here
Just wanna make me cry
Cuz they're not dead, they're alive
If they had a head
They'd be praising me instead
But I'll laugh on the day
When they fall on their face
Cuz of God's grace
And his glory in this place
So you can be a cat
Of the Most High King
Cuz I mean seriously
You owe him everything
So dance with joy
Exhalt him and sing
And every morning
Let the praises ring
So let 'em spit in your face
Gossip with disgrace
This is the persecution
Of rare Christian faith
Cuz you're in the battle
Of the mind
And I hope you will find
The courage that will fight
And the light that will shine'
