Verse 1 & Hook Written by JEREMIAH BLIGEN
Verse 2 Written by Datin
Verse 3 Written by Twyse
Yeah, let’s address it first.
So the message posted won’t get lost
Because you think that Its for show,
We’ve become desensitized,
We treat it like a curse-,
Word and not a place void of Grace,
Where people actually go.
Look, I promise, it never fails,
It’s like every single day,
trying to walk this straight and narrow,
Something’s always in the way (weigh),
On the scale to disrupt my faith,
to construct a structure full of hate,
put the worst of me on display,
but I won’t roast, that beef’s decayed.
Look you will try, but you won't break me boy,
No matter how you push it,
self control, it doesnt bolt,
when I lose a little cushion.
why you cussing?
I aint fussing,
That confusion aint for me,
Can’t let it take me to a place
Where I want your nose to meet my knee!
I'm on my knees praying for patience,
in this hospital for my peace,
Lord let me prove through my responses,
That your Spirit lives in me!
Humble me, with my memory,
The graveness of my case!
How I've fallen and autumn too,
Let me fight to mirror your grace.
Against 300 Spartans,
We will stand firm,
upon your word, your works
In every area of our lives
we will wage war,
not by my might,
but your spirit Lord.
Fight Like Hell,
Fight Like Hell: is an actual place,
though we've been secured by grace,
perseverance proves faith,
through it all,
we’ll endure this race.
Verse 2 (Datin):
I know that I myself,
I might fail,
There aint no way I’m winning this fight,
By my own might, I’m frail,
Thank God his Holy Spirit lives in me,
Yes, inside Christ dwells,
So I’m not all alone, my sword is drawn,
And I fight like hell.
Its faith not optimism,
So I’m confident, in the God that’s living in me,
So despite my condition I won’t be stopped by the competition,
I can see a whole line of demons in front of me with arms locked an hissing,
Red Rover, Red Rover,
I won’t be blocked by the opposition,
Tell them boys they can’t hold me back,
Said they can’t hold me back,
Step in my way and I’m gone react,
See the young homie snap,
Then with the force of a freight train,
I run for it and break chains, then take claim,
Of the evidence that I have Jesus,
My grace came.
This gone happen every day,
Tryna walk this straight narrow,
Something’s always in the way,
But no weapon formed against me,
Cant contain me or restrain me
Cause the lion is within me,
You gone only make him angry,
Verse 3 (TWyse):
You know the house of cards well I know the deal,
You happy being despicable, you don’t want this joy for real,
No Malice, but don’t treat me like,
I squeak or I squeal, cause then you’ll push a T,
That’s my flesh talking; this right here is spiritual,
Vengeance is mine sayeth the Lord,
I aint got nothing to fight for,
All I gotta do is find floor,
Kneel there, Pray there,
Prostrate, even when my heart is irate,
For Iraq and ISIS,
I is, a Christian,
I know what it’s like to be headed,
In the right direction then get cut off.
You fighting what you can’t see so,
You gotta use who you can’t see,
Meaning don’t be strong southpaw in the power of your right,
Be strong, in the Lord,
And the power of his might, Cause,
The battle is about standing and strength only
And those of us who can stand,
We won’t fall for nothing homie,
