If it walks & talks like...y'all know the rest.
But if it don't describe you, much love & be blessed.
Nobody's perfect, we confess.
Everybody's got room to grow fa sho.
Yo - I break through barriers
I'm a time traveler
I shun the wicked and kick it among those who flip lyrics unscripted
I'm amongst the gifted
I heard the spirit and drifted
Three thousand miles to the west I don't sleep I rest
Every breath is a testament to my testimony
If you don't know me don't slow me down
Unless you my brother trying to cover me with wisdom
You my enemy in this system on this road to perdition
I'm a heaven sent intervention
For those cats who love rap
But the fact remains they can't hear it on their radio station
My occupation is hard worker
My inspiration is I got a lot to learn
I won't retire
I pray the Lord tarries and carries me in a chariot of fire
Cuz if we walk & talk right, we're gonna get blessed.
With the light, we rock mics trying to be the best.
I guess some parts are hard to digest.
But some really make it their quest to detest.
It's only natural. We're gonna be misunderstood.
I sat & thought about that old question.
Should I let it get to me the way that it does...
to the point where I can't focus, which was getting to be the case. But because of His love, I'm living proof of grace. It makes me recall all of those who chose to listen with an open mind. Never spoon fed, I read between the lines. I said what I thought but not what I felt. I rolled with the punches. Played whatever cards I was dealt & knelt down at the altar. Built foundation on the rock, but not Gibraltar.
Much stronger on a longer path with a rod & my staff.
Red paragraphs keep me on track thru the highs & the lows.
I'll let the _____ fill the void. Then I'm Outro.
