lyrics

It's true that the sky's the limit/ I've read and my eyes have witnessed/ How miracles manifest through the lives of misfits/ And surprise the critics, blow the minds of cynics/ Ask my oldest friends if they thought I'd ever be rhymin' lyrics/ Naw, the response negatory/ The odds flipped. It's obvious my God gets the glory/ Check it homie, I ain't qualified at all to rhyme/ It's God's design. I never thought to jot a bar or line 'til I was called to shine/ Light through these gifts. I can't call 'em mine/ Nor could I stall for time/ Nor could I sell 'em out for dollar signs followed by six figures/ My soul is not for sale/ I put my life behind these bars and I don't want no bail/ Still rappin' 'bout the bread you stack? Boy, that's gotten stale/ You gon' wind up another forgotten tale/ I'd rather minister to listeners than top the sales/ And pray to God that He keep me on track like a monorail/ Cap my past – a new era has begun/ I'm daily guided by the Father as I become/ More like the Son/
So you could try to cut me off, but I'm rooted in His word like a tree stump/ It's raw heat, son. Fire from the supplier/ I see my deprivation, desiring my Messiah/ It ain't just desperation, emotionally getting higher/ And ain't no expiration – we never fin to retire/ I'm chasing after Him like never befo'/ In full gear. Man, I ain't fin to pedal and coast/ Don't you take a single sentence as a credible quote/ If you know me but you never seen my evident growth. No sir/ It doesn't constitute a life of faith/ If I slap a Jesus fish on my bumper next to my license plate/ While I'm livin' in hypocrisy/ Thankful though I falter, He always faithful to walk with me/ Honestly, He already knows that I'm weak, incompetent/ Yet He brings forth great feats and accomplishments through me/ But why should I be alarmed with this?/ Even Moses didn't speak with confidence/ Each person on earth is birthed with a purpose to serve/ And you might be a little nervous at first/ But hear me out son, don't slack when the doubt comes/ The Lord's got your back. Just act – He got the outcome.
