I would like to tell of an old man that I got to know

Once we started talking our friendship began to grow.


When he spoke I would listen because for him I did care about

He never told me anything wrong, this I knew, without a doubt.


But first let me say this, I got high 24 - 7 that's just how I was

After so many years of this, getting high became just getting a buzz.


One day I was rushing around being a complete and total fool

When the old man stopped me and said,

What your doing ain't cool.


Then he said listen, I know you have a good heart;

So please come in and sit down.

Now all of this getting high all day and all night;

Will get you put right under ground.


While rippin and runnin round in your present state of mind

Your headin for your final fall.

You must try to stop now and let YAHWEH drive awhile

Because your headed toward a brick wall.


It's like this, YAHWEH wants everyone on Earth

To achieve one simple goal.

The goal is that we all find the way to HIS Kingdom

Be you young or be you old.


This goal is a test, and like any test to pass it

You will have to work hard to earn;

You need to pass this test while on Earth

And the answers you will have to learn.


While you're here on Earth look for the one

Who has the power to teach.

The one that I speak of is YAHSHUA MESSIAH

It is him that you must reach.


It was then I asked him, where do I look

For this YAHSHUA MESSIAH he said.

Seek and you shall find;


I said I'm not ready to look for this YAHSHUA MESSIAH;

He said

You better get something on your mind.
