"It's Complicated" (2016)

Meeting Of The Minds lyrics - Da' T.R.U.T.H. (feat. Dr. Ravi Zacharias)

[Da' T.R.U.T.H.:]
Dr. Zacharias

[Dr. Ravi Zacharias:]
Good to be with you

[Da' T.R.U.T.H.:]
Good to meet you too. As I expressed to you earlier, this is a surreal moment for me. I know you heard it a million times, but I grew up on your ministry. So much of what you have done has helped to shape my theology. It has helped to affirm my Christian convictions and help empower me to be equipped when engaging with people who ask very penetrating questions

[Dr. Ravi Zacharias:]
I'm honored to do that. Thank you
Have you do what you're doing, you're reaching a generation and a kind of thinking that many of us can't do. So, you know we are on the same mission, Emmanuel. I thank God for you guys that have the same gifts that you have and using it for the same purpose. Thank you for being here

The Greatest Need lyrics - Da' T.R.U.T.H.

He the messiah [x4]
Jesus is the messiah
He the messiah
He the messiah
Jesus is the messiah

New West is the new Rome
Doing right is the new wrong
I pray what they write on my tombstone
Is that we never chasing after fool's gold
And we lived as kings
See, religious people on they worst behavior
So, non-believers are the nicest people
Is it all a matter of interpretation?
I seen em' do charity
Maybe, they not as evil as the church has made em'
Ain't nobody perfect, ain't we all being human-beings?
We gon' make mistakes, nobody said that we wouldn't
See, now, religious people that have failed less(Confusing)
I mean, they ain't never put they faith in God, but they beat it in 12 steps
Successful business men and well-dressed
Why would they think that they need God?
I can kinda see why that they can care less

Folks just ask me how I'm doing
I tell them that I'm good
But never good enough that I won't be in need of his blood
We doing good now
Pull ourselves up out of the mud
But, no matter how we good do
Know it still won't be good enough
We need the messiah

He the messiah [x4]
Jesus is the messiah
He the messiah
He the messiah
Jesus is the messiah

I had a dream, I stood on the world stage
It was the pope, the pastor of the Dalai lama, and the emom
They all represented the world face
I looked at God with a weird face, because he wouldn't let him in the pearl gates
I'm tying to wrap my mind around it
Why would God not allow it?
Ain't like they drinking, smoking marijuana
Ain't like they gang-banging
What's the problem?
All they ever wanted to do was see his face
They devoted with sincere faith
Only to be disappointed when they got to the top of the staircase
I'm like what does he want?
Is that not enough?
I've seen devout Jews at the well of wall with devout trust
Prayer rugs and Quarnic books
Pastored until our Madonnas up
I'm just trying to get to the bottom of it

Folks just ask me how I'm doing
I tell them that I'm good
But never good enough that I won't be in need of his blood
We doing good now
Pull ourselves up out of the mud
But, no matter how we good do
Know it still won't be good enough
We need the messiah

He the messiah [x4]
Jesus is the messiah
He the messiah
He the messiah
Jesus is the messiah

He's the judge by a different standard
We keep trying to get a simple answer
Asking me the same question over
Hoping I giving you a different answer
If you break the law, that's the 10 commandments
That'll put you at a disadvantage
See that woman and she fully clothed
What you seeing is a stripper dancing
Boy, you know you can't pretend
In God eyes, x-ray
Said I'm never doing it again, turned around and it did it the next day
I can't keep from doing wrong
Even when I'm doing right
I think the deeper problem's in my heart
No matter how hard I try
Think about it before you had the chance to think about it
You was only 2 years old when you screamed and pouted
Your adolescence sneaking out
And going freaking cheating
Why you seeking knowledge from the education
Never weed it out my man
Problem deeper than your economics
We got peaks and valleys
We got ups and downs
Don't try to hide it, the secret side of man
The only thing you gotta do is believe
You know what it is
Jesus didn't come to make bad people good
You know that your sins is forgiven
And know that it is the greatest leave
Jesus came to make dead people live

Religion lyrics - Da' T.R.U.T.H. (feat. Dr. Ravi Zacharias)

Wouldn't the world be a more peaceful place without religion?

Am I a Christian because I really believe it? Or because that's what I've been taught to believe?

Are all religions equal, can we even know?

What's the difference between religion and spirituality?

Yeah
So many religions in this world
Man, can we really know?

I was raised in a Christian home, pacing through different rooms
Son of a preacherman, faith that is been assumed
Brainwashed in my youth, take time to choose
Money or Bible college in train rides to school
Playing follow-the-leader, what am I to believe?
Did I blindly believe when I got a Bible to read?
Then I got down on my knees as the one way to God
Dropped down to plead, a total waste of my time?
Is his name a lie or is his name Allah?
Is it really important, the right name or not?
Can Christ save a life, the ...(?)
I'm not taking chances, my flight plans is cancelled
I call up my pastor, he might have the answer
I might scratch the surface but is the surface enough?
Know the truth is the truth whether we believe it or not
So find me a place to park cause I'm circling around the block

[Ravi Zacharias:]
He thinks all these other religions all teach the same things, he obviously doesn't have an understanding of these religions. Pantheism doesn't teach the same thing as theism. Monotheism, monotheistic beliefs are not all the same. What Islam believes about Allah and what the Christian believes about the Triune God are two different things. All religions, at best, are superficially similar, but they are fundamentally different

I understand what the feel when they say that religion kills
Africa, slave trade, the walls that the Christians built
Bible used for oppression, the West on a mission field
Hindu rebels, the churches they striking, the blood spills
When the blow up the mosques Islamic fighters respond
Once they strap on a bomb, intensive fighters arise
All for the glory, Jihad
Japanese empires ruled with the iron rod, but is it the will of God?
They say Abrahamic religions the cause of hate and division
Tell me to which god should I pray and ask for forgiveness
Before I jump off the cliff, make a drastic decision
If I believe in your god will he make a dramatic difference?
Can you answer that question? Am I ...?
Would I still be a saint if I wasn't raised in the West?
How many paths to God? If it's one I'm taking my steps
Hope he's still open to talk to me when I'm facing my death

[Ravi Zacharias:]
Christianity is not the same as who Christ is. In fact, when Peter took out his sword to cut off the ear of the high priest's servant, what did Jesus do? Put it back. Not only did he get him to put the sword back, he got to put the ear back. It is both inaccurate and false what he is concluding

Is it dangerous to be exclusive?
Can we know what the truth is?
"When I'm old enough to decide" huh?
Will I be bold enough to deny
Everything I was taught when I'm making my own conclusions
I pray it's not an illusion
Country with many religions
They all look the same on the surface but
At the core they are fundamentally different
We all on this journey together
And I know that there's a God out there that can make my eternity better

Misconceptions lyrics - Da' T.R.U.T.H. (feat. Dr. Ravi Zacharias)

In the Hip-Hop culture
Everybody believes in heaven
By in large, nobody goes to hell

Biggie said, "When I die I wanna go to hell because I'm a piece a mess
And it ain't hard to tell
I don't wanna go to heaven with the goodies
Man, I wanna go to hell with the dudes in black hoodies"
For the money and the power
Why would he? I don't know
Why put him in the place that he said he ain't wanna go?
Ain't no promise for tomorrow
Lord have mercy on my soul
Man, we sick of blowing smoke
Man, we Christians, we ain't politicians
So, naturally, they got a problem with it
Hate to be the bearer of the bad news
Just like I said this ain't my opinion
Let's take the murder in the Beatles story
They shot John Lennon, died prematurely
Every heart will bear for these loved ones
They shot him dead before he reached his forties
He wrote a note,"Oh, is Jesus for me?"
I just wanna know if God is real
It's a quote and it's been reported
"if He is then I want out of hell"
It's such a shame when it gets distorted
Yeah, we talking about loving bail
It's such a shame that he departed
I pray we never change if it's out of fear

All these misconceptions
Headed my direction
Looking for an answer
Which way do I go?
All my imperfections
Can we find an answer?
Which way do I go?

Man, they got us running scared
Gotta talk it rapid and it's so unfair
I thought America was land of the free
Can't talk about it in the public square
Keep it to yourself like a private eye
Nobody talk about it till it's homicide
They only seem to talk about his love
Nobody talked about the other side
I'm not a judge, only God is
I can not pretend to know where Pac is
I can not pretend to where Powe went
All I know is death is like a pop quiz
Where do I go when I finish here?
What if I repent and say the sinner's prayer?
What happens when I disappear?
How can the love of God send us there?

All these misconceptions
Headed my direction
Looking for an answer
Which way do I go?
All my imperfections
Can we find an answer?
Which way do I go?

[Dr. Ravi Zacharias:]
I will tell you this, Emmanuel
If I did not believe in the reality of hell
I don't think I would be in this ministry
It is not just the longing for heaven
It is the legitimate shunning
Of pain which is what hell to me is
The absence of God and it's not an after say to say it's happening in this world
What happened to Hitler in this world?
What happens to many in this
There are murderers running free today about whom we know nothing
And they'll never get caught
They are quite happy to be doing all of the crime
Why not go and have a shootout after a funeral if there is no hell?
But, on the other hand, if I'm told by mother, "Don't put your hand into that flame. It will burn."
It's a natural law at work
There is a spiritual law at work too
You determine to live apart from God
And you will spend your eternity precisely that way

I'm afraid that we've gotten soft
God is not a villain that the muscles bought
What about the people that are never hurt?
All I know is everybody saw the cannibal
All I know, he's a judge and he judges right
It's what I told em' all on the other night
If you believe that you can break the law you can go to jail
When you breaking the law of heaven
You can go to hell
Dang

Whatcha say? That's a mind set from a different day? All of that so ten years ago And they just wanna keep that picture gray? So sorry to disappoint ya But God's still got somethin' to say From love to hip hop To the instagram pics that I post to post when I'm in the gray I feel Black and white in this gray world I feel [x4] But maybe I'm just color blind Maybe I'm out of my mind Maybe I'm one of a kind And we just don't see eye to eye Maybe I done crossed the line But its time to draw the line Truth is not so hard to find Truth can not be redefined God of heavenly wanna teach us forever Wanna show us pleasure And man is not how you measure I ain't got the answers Can I ever be the standard Standing on a rock to avoid the sand on the desert You could think what you want But I promise Gods got the final say Got away from truth that we used to model like Tyra Banks Bottle away the bible base life is better for brighter days A lot has changed but truth is the reason I'm alive today Stars are bright when you are near The hearts alive when you appear All I know it starts when you Reveal yourself I come to life To life

Turn up season back to business
True Christians don't act religious
Okay now you can ask the question
Not much time imma cast division
Based on how the world is changing
No such thing as a bad decision
Imma let you be the judge
Tell me is that fact a fiction
'Nother rapper sack religious
Man they need to ask forgiveness
See that writin' on the wall
Man we call the vandalism
Just that skin that I was born to be in'
A p like thats your o p in
I be like thats cliché
We got that from the Europeans
First of all
First of all
They don't really wanna see the church involved
Cuz we talkin' abstinence
While they talkin' birth control
They make the rules as to go along
They blur the lines and reverse the wrongs
We gotta fight the bullet like Leroy
Thats why I'm cryin' out have mercy Lord

I feel
Black and white
Black and white in this gray world I feel [x4]
But maybe I'm just color blind
Maybe I'm out of my mind
Maybe I'm one of a kind
And we just don't see eye to eye
Maybe I done crossed the line
But its time to draw the line
Truth is not so hard to find
Truth can not be redefined

Rockstars rockin' entertainers
They speak words that penetrate us
When they talk we stop and listen
All because they rich and famous
Coaches shiftin' different changes
Coaches shiftin' livin' dangerous
Universal epidemic
Don't nobody care what the scripture sayin'
People so opinionated
And they think they liberated
They say let that freedom rang
I'm afraid they've been mistaken
They say truth is what you make it
They say truth is what you make it
We say thats a flat lie
Let God weigh in on the conversation
Whatcha say?
Whatcha say?
That's a mind set from a different day?
All of that so ten years ago
And they just wanna keep that picture gray?
So sorry to disappoint ya
But God's still got somethin' to say
From love to hip hop
To the instagram pics that I post to post when I'm in the gray

I feel
Black and white in this gray world I feel [x4]
But maybe I'm just color blind
Maybe I'm out of my mind
Maybe I'm one of a kind
And we just don't see eye to eye
Maybe I done crossed the line
But its time to draw the line
Truth is not so hard to find
Truth can not be redefined

God of heavenly wanna teach us forever
Wanna show us pleasure
And man is not how you measure
I ain't got the answers
Can I ever be the standard
Standing on a rock to avoid the sand on the desert
You could think what you want
But I promise Gods got the final say
Got away from truth that we used to model like Tyra Banks
Bottle away the bible base life is better for brighter days
A lot has changed but truth is the reason I'm alive today

Stars are bright when you are near
The hearts alive when you appear
All I know it starts when you
Reveal yourself
I come to life

To life

Loud & Clear lyrics - Da' T.R.U.T.H. (feat. Jon White (of Capital Kings) & Tedashii)

What happened to you last night
How come you never called back
I was waiting by the phone like Eddie Murphy in boomerang
I guess I gotta fall back
You ever get the last text that I sent, huh
I guess you never saw that
And what about the post I put it up on your twitter page
All caps
I guess I'm just not in sight
You made that crystal last night
But I still love you despite
Can't get rid of me that easy
I'm a love you through the night
If that's alright

[Hook - Capital Kings:]
Can you hear me loud
Cause I wanna be loud and clear
Can you hear me now
Cause I wanna be loud and clear
Oh (I wanna be, I, I, I wanna be loud and clear) [x2]

You stood me up again, huh
It was supposed to be a date night
What's the excuse this time
"Tried to make it but you that it rained on the same night"
This is the thanks that I get
After I gave my life?
After I gave my all
And going out my way for a sacrifice
I guess my all's not enough
All you really wanted was my stuff
That's why I gotta shake things a bit
Cause people they tend to come around when it gets tough
But let me turn the noise down
So you could hear me, listen up

[Hook]

(Loud and clear) [x2]
So if you can hear me listen up (Loud and clear) [x2]
I sit in the king's seat
Can you hear me (loud and clear)
I speak to you through the son
And he's very (loud and clear)
You should let the king speak
Can you hear me (loud and clear)
All rise for the king's speech (Can you hear me loud and clear)

[Tedashii:]
Uh, I'm all that matters
Cut all that chatter
Working for nothing I already love you
You know it I show it but I'm not your puppet
No sir, can't play me
Cause there's nothing you can do
That can sway me
Separate me cause I love you
Even when your wrong and think I left you alone
Even in your wrongs, I never left my throne
I'm in control and won't let you go

[Hook]

I Made It lyrics - Da' T.R.U.T.H. (feat. Black Knight & TC)

You made it all.
And the world that You made;
Fell, apart, all the people cried out:
O'Lord, how long
And You sent the Redeemer;
To come, along, and restore, what's lost
(You made)

You provided all the answers to my questions;
Like, "How did I get here? Question:
Was it through a natural selection?"
No sir, it was the Master's selection (heh)
He did at His discretion.
According to His own will like the Fresh Prince
Decided who He put breathe in
Where life starts, where death ends
You know that's quite impressive!
I know that you intended for us all to be best friends. (yeah!)
But that was 'till death'n sin came to the world;
And put us all into deficit. (yeah)
Which led to my next question:
"Is there any -is there any hope in this depression?" (yeah)
You said the answer is, "Yes" and then You sent the Kinsman redeemer to step in.

You made it all.
And the world that You made;
Fell, apart, all the people cried out:
O'Lord, how long
And You sent the Redeemer;
To come, along, and restore, what was lost...
[x2]
(You made)

(Uh) Then You came to the rescue.
Like Hillsong and that's the best news!
It took real long, but that was a chess move.
You wasn't tryin' to stall it, like restrooms. (hah)
No You wiser than this song
We're reminded that you are Sovereign, it was all on schedule. (yeah!)
You brought Light into the dark; When you died on the cross;
But that was just a flesh wound! (hah)
Cause death couldn't hold You;
So You rose up with ALL power in your Right Hand!
You left gifts for the whole crew.
And you overloaded us with power that we might stand.
Yeah that was your precise plan;
Made us shine bright, like lights on a nightstand.
And for the rest of our life-span;
You'll restore us back to the image of Christ, yeah!

You made it all!
And the world that you made;
Fell apart, and the people cried out;
O'Lord, how long
And You sent the Redeemer;
To come, along, and restore what was lost.
[x2]

Bully lyrics - Da' T.R.U.T.H. (feat. J.R.)

I guess I should be changing with the times
It's the 21st century
Feeling like I'm out of my mind
This is not the way it was meant to be
Everybody's stepping out of line
But I heard that eventually
Everything is gon' burn
Can I get your attention please?
I don't need your permission please
No more Mr. Nice Guy
I'ma let the tension breathe
They just want me to pipe down
I'ma fight in the four walls
I refuse to bite and just go along
If I'm bruised with a knife I'ma go hard
I'm right, you're wrong
That's a statement that make you bold as a lion
That's a statement that get you thrown into the lion's, den
Get you thrown into the frying, pan
Please forgive us for this defiance
I'm sorry, we're normally more compliant
But tonight we setting it on fire

[J.R.:]
I never thought that you would take it this far
And everything you've done to try to make me move
Take a look at my heart and you'll see my scars
But I won't take this no more
You will never bully me, no longer
You will never bully me, no longer
No matter what you say I'll never runaway
I will never be kept silent again

Twin brows and a black mask
"Take the money out the cash drawer"
I don't care what y'all say
Can't tell me that it's natural
Two men that are in love
Stand up for holy matrimony
They stand in front of the pastor
I'm in my zone, they only want me to back up
I'm sick of walking on eggshells
All this political correctness
We call it abomination
Y'all call it progressive
Man, we call it evil
Y'all try to protect it
Y'all don't want us to judge
Y'all just want us to shrug and follow y'all's directions
Y'all don't want us to judge as soon as we don't cosign
Quick to throw a label on us: "Bigots with a closed mind"
Well ain't y'all judging us?
Hold up, talking out of both sides
If it's, "Live let live," then live, let live
You go your way, we go ours

[J.R.:]
I never thought that you would take it this far
And everything you've done to try to make me move
Take a look at my heart and you'll see my scars
But I won't take this no more
I never thought that you would take it this far
And do the things you've done just to make me move
Take a look at my heart and you'll see my scars
But I won't take this no more
You will never bully me, no longer
You will never bully me, no longer
No matter what you say I'll never runaway
I will never be kept silent again

I'm not being judgmental
My argument is not with one group in particular
My argument is with the system
Yeah Jesus was a friend of the sinner
But He wasn't a friend of the system
They wanna tell us that right is wrong and wrong is right
The moment we try to say something they wanna neutralize us
I say it's time to stand up and fight

Change The World lyrics - Da' T.R.U.T.H. (feat. Chris August)

[Chorus - Chris August:]
I won't let you out of my sight
I'm alive, I'm alive
You came down and changed my life around
Now I know
We can change the world

Together
We can change this world
One day at a time
One person at a time
One life at a time

It's 2014 and I'm down on my knees
I'm crying out to heaven like please help me
I got good here, gotta pretty good career
Got a couple degrees but what did it all mean
If you can hear my words, can't see my good deeds
Hanging with the strong, I ain't thinking bout the weak
Man, there is something wrong, if after this song
The only person that I'm really thinking about is me
Help me Lord, ah
Man I'm feeling so torn
There I go again I'm on another world tour
Walking through the mall and accumulating more
And I'm helping my self, I ain't giving to the poor
Lord, teach me how to open my ears
Yeah so I can give a heed to their tears
Yeah I promise that I'm so sincere
Cause I wanna be different this year
Cheers

You can take my hand
You can take my hand, I can lead you to the light
Hope you understand, we can show you new life
I got a new passion now when I write
Standing up for the underdogs, they ain't got a mike
They ain't got a voice now, they ain't got might
When they come around everybody take flight
Now on Facebook they ain't got a lot of like
Man, it's time to stand up and fight for their right
Here we go
Ain't a song like this on the radio
No, now man everywhere we go
We're looking for the geeks and the uncool
And all the people that have been searching for a miracle
Yeah, I wanna give it my best
Looking for the broken and the oppressed
Give it our all, we should never give it less
Live life, let Christ do the rest
Blessed

Heartbeat lyrics - Da' T.R.U.T.H. (feat. Lecrae & Lauren Lee)

[Hook - Lauren Lee:]
This is my heartbeat, heartbeat
Got a soul on fire that burns inside me, side me
Now I got, now I got
Love and Heaven running through my veins
Like dynamite that you can't contain my heartbeat
Yeah

As long as I'm alive I want to share in God's heart, heart, heart, heart
Yeah, a lot is on my mind
When I'm thinking God's thoughts, thoughts, thoughts, thoughts
Yeah, and that's a small thing for the price that I was bought
When it's on the line I want to know what God taught
If that ain't at the root then everything will fall apart, part, part, part
Yeah, can I live I want to feel what you feel
See what you see, let me know that this is real
This is my appeal hear the cry when I kneel
Peal the lens that I conceal and every thought that I can shield
Heart is on the sleeve daydreaming in the field
Thoughts about forever tunnel vision on the heels
Heart can be deceitful but it's beating for the people
And it's bleeding for the heart of God's meal
Yeah

[Hook x2]

[Lecrae:]
I'm back at it after a year full of tragic circumstances
Now people think it's with the Devil I'm dancing
I don't blame em', they probably had to bury they family
And raise kids they just see me here winning this Grammy
And follow my Instagram and conclude I'm less of a man
Cause' I was posing next to 2 Chainz, yeah I know it's too strange
But back up, I remember knocking at R-Swift
On the corner with strangers
Trying to convince them of God's gift
Bible studies every week, and I'm teaching a couple of dudes
How to live out all the stuff that I'm learning it's all new
So, I'm passionate about it, I rapped it in every verse
I never heard of this stuff before so it's helping me to rehearse
Well what happens when you practice it now it's a part of your life
Do you have to rap about it to prove that you're repping Christ?
Name dropping theologians and all of the books I'm reading
I was brand new to it excited that's why I was speaking
Now I'm learning how to manage my business and be a daddy
Paying bills, making wheels and they thinking it's all candy
Everything's sweet, man these shoes on my feet are worn down
If you wore em' do you think you could take the heat?
It's funny cause' I ain't ask for this
I ain't want to be the poster boy for the genre, a pastor this
I just wanted to make music from the heart
Whether I'm reading Spurgeon or inspired by good art
This is my heartbeat

[Hook x2]

Can't look to the world to try to find true answers
That's like taking anger management class from Bruce Banner
The music pans left and right and don't produce manners
It only affirms the rebellionness in these loose cannons
I'm looking at all the faces of these confused parents
How they confuse when they move the rules and choose new standards
You can't allow them to amuse themselves and polluted lyrics
And not expect to see them locked up in front of the news cameras
I'm hangin' with the homies chain smokin'
Binge drinkin', I've been thinkin' why the ship sinkin'
I can't blame it on all the songs that they lip syncin'
Or on the stars that they was twerkin' with this weekend
Guess I should blame it on the rain, hold up, maybe not
Another rapper tellin our girls to make it drop
I'm so annoyed at my spirit, somebody make it stop
But in the meantime, I guess I gotta pray to God
The anger's burnin' frustrated when cable channels turnin'
Cause idols everywhere hear the cry of the faithful servant
God I feel so heavy I carry the weight and burden
Salvation come cause I'm anxious to see the tables turnin'
But I know that there's a hope that lies beyond the veil
A generation of worshippers no matter how I fail
Only time will tell, I know that God is real
My heart is breaking, waiting to see the way our God prevail

[Hook]

I'm passionate about it
Cause' I'm anxious to see the tables turning
I'm passionate about it
Cause' I'm anxious to see the tables turning
I'm passionate about it
Cause' I'm anxious to see the tables turning
I'm passionate, I'm passionate, I gotta, gotta pray to God

[Hook]

Rising Sun lyrics - Da' T.R.U.T.H. (feat. Z.G., TJ Pompeo & Prayz1)

[Chorus - Z.G.:]
When the winter comes and the rain falls (it falls, yeah)
I recall in the darkness the shadows tryna bring me down
I look to the horizon
You will come like the rising sun
You will come like the rising sun
Yeah, oh yeah
[Repeat]

I know you seen the seasons come and you seen them go
You seen the highs and you seen the lows
You seen the bronze and you seen the gold
You seen them died and you seen them grow, through it all you standin’ like a cedar grove
Yeah, now see the power in the potter’s hand
And when you walk through the wilderness, see the promised land
Yeah, through all the struggles God has got a plan
See the horizon, this light of God is his shine again
The winter comes, the rain falls
There will eventually come a time when the rain is gone
But in the meantime, keep hanging on
And see the picture that he’s painting on … gone

[Chorus - Z.G.:]
When the winter comes and the rain falls (it falls, yeah)
I recall in the darkness the shadows tryna bring me down
I look to the horizon
You will come like the rising sun
You will come like the rising sun
Yeah, oh yeah

[TJ Pompeo:]
So many times I’m scared to believe what’s real
Other times scared to relieve what I feel
And the course will veer
But if I’m fearful of faith, then I’m faithful to fear
When it feels like the struggle is prevailing, troubles and the ailments
Life delivers punches better than your mailmen
Remember the one that prevailed and wrote that love letter to you
P.S. That love is never failing...
And now we may cry
Until we see the break in the daylight
We keep on keeping on from sunset to sunrise
You can let that rain fall, let that rain fall
‘Cause we are warriors
Even though we have scars
We keep on keeping on from sunset to sunrise
We say let that rainfall, let the rain fall now

[Chorus - Z.G.:]
When the winter comes and the rain falls (it falls, yeah)
I recall in the darkness the shadows tryna bring me down
I look to the horizon
You will come like the rising sun
You will come like the rising sun
Yeah, oh yeah

[Prayz1:]
Never give up ‘cause you know who you have, in a dark place he’ll be lighting a path
Through any season you’re in he will make you whole, and you don’t know the half
I’m living, I’m learning that everything that I go through, it be makin’ me strong
Through the crisis, I wanna be Christ-like, you can call me a clone
‘Cause I’m human, and I can’t get through it, nope not on my own
And my God is every bit of my guidance and he’s still on the throne
The fact is we need him and he’s right here for all of us
Through the valleys and shadows, through the storms he’s still calling us
Man this is Kingdom, wherever you’re from
Shout out to Jamaica, we call ‘em the King Stone
Every last one of our needs he has
When the rain comes, you don’t need no GPS on dash to find our dad

[Bridge - Z.G.:]
And when I see your mercy
Come crashing through the nights
I look up to the heavens
There I’ll find your guiding light

[Chorus - Z.G.:]
When the winter comes and the rain falls (it falls, yeah)
I recall in the darkness the shadows tryna bring me down
I look to the horizon
You will come like the rising sun
You will come like the rising sun
Yeah, oh yeah

Hunger Games lyrics - Da' T.R.U.T.H.

(We're always choosing misery because we haven't planned to say no to that second helping, or that drink, or that look in the magazine, or getting out of bed in the morning and so we surrender in the moment to the God of the...)

Coulda' been wise, shoulda' listened to the prophet
But ya lil' homie told you you should try it 'fore you knock it
And you did it, you got with it, and it felt so microscopic
That's until you tried to quit it and you found you couldn't stop it
Slave now addicted to the rush. (to the rush)
It's what you crave now, cannot get enough
You a Christian on a mission and that battle here is tough
And the matter that you grapple with is battlin' with lust. (I know)
Just took another peek into the magazines, (magazines)
Dipped another finger in the Vaseline, (Vaseline)
Flesh was on fire, gave it gasoline
And this was just a battle for ya average teen, (haha)
And every human with a beatin' heart
Every Christian struggles but we pressin' just to meet the mark
Supernatural powers runnin' through us cause we need the spark
But can determine if we Spider Man or Peter Parker. (haha)
And I'm confused now, which one is it?
Losers? Are we Winners? Are we Saints or are we sinners?
And I'm tryna' figure out if we victims or we victors
But I guess it all depends on what you cookin' up for dinner. (I'm gone)

[Hook:]
This power's runnin' through my veins. (I'm gone)
I can change if I wanna change. (I'm gone)
Temptations drivin' me insane. (I'm gone)
Welcome to the Hunger Games

They say you is what you eatin'
And you really love God, you've been shining like a beacon
And you solid, you got knowledge, you been walkin' in your freedom
And you faithful through the week but you be fightin' on the weekends
I know the Christian life's a struggle now
Friday night is poppin' and the city life is buzzin' now
That's about the time you used to call out for another round
Now you gotta choose between life and the underground
Feel like you owe it to yourself, don't you?
Sin is magnetic (shhh) when it pulls ya
Tryna pull away but it keeps pushin
And you want it bad, but you know it's poison
You like, "My God I feel so powerless!"
Crying out to Heaven sayin, "Jesus I know I'm a mess."
Looking at the hours left, Jesus get me outta this
Cause you know we losin if we try to fight in our own strength
Screaming: God SAVE ME, God SAVE ME!
I know I gotta die daily, die daily
If I need deliverance from gluttony and fine ladies
I know I'm winnin' with the strength that God gave me. (I'm gone)

[Hook]

(Uh) Yea you winning man, you winnin' man
Victory in Jesus sends you strength into ya inner man
Yea we give em Jesus when we playing down in WinterJam
Cause we want to help them to come up with a preventive plan. (Yea)
Preparation is the key
I'm on it, on my diet just the make it through the week
And man I know that all my strength is gon' be based on what I eat
So then if I deny my belly then I'm faithful when I'm weak
I'm gone...
