Flame - Goodness to Repentance
(from the album Our World Fallen)
© copyright 2007

Yea... let me talk to you for a min/
You know I try to keep my ear to the streets right/
You know I hear so many war stories man/
I hear about so many times cats have been spared/
Cats should’ve been dead/
You’d think that would be enough for cats to turn to Christ/
But I guess sometimes you gotta learn the hard way

Verse 1:
I done heard too many war stories/
Seen too many spared/
While God still sustain cats that don’t even care/
Yea you should’ve got shot/
When them bullets ricocheted/
Yea you should have got robbed/
But grandmamma went to pray/
Yea you should have got hit by that truck on the road/
Ain’t no luck when you stuck/
With bullet holes in your clothes/
Five shots could drop me/
I took it and smiled/
That’s a quote from Tupac/
Wow look at him now/
Wow look at him now/
Everyday cats duck, dodge, strays from a range/
You think it’s simply that them shooters just ain’t shooting with aim/
Naw, a Teflon vest/
Ain’t the only thing that’s stopping them bullets from eating through your chest.

How many rappers got shot that’s then died?
How many rappers got shot that’s alive?
How many shots going bang bang?
Cats trying to gang bang?
How many trying to please God?
God’s goodness should lead men to the repentance (it should make you wanna change)
Goodness should lead men to the repentance (it should make you wanna change)
Goodness should lead men to the repentance (it should make you wanna change)
Goodness should lead men to the repentance (it should make you wanna change)

Verse 2:
50 Cent took nine shots look at his face/
If you look a little closer you can see God’s grace/
Lloyd Banks got shot drove himself to the doc/
Young Buck got shot but he’s still on the clock/
Beanie Siegel got shot thank God he’s alive/
To add to the list/
Fabulous got shot in the thigh/
Even Camron took one in each of his arms/
Are you alarmed? Is this enough to seek a reform/
Even The Game got shot but he still breathing/
That’s a real reason for people to seek Jesus/
Complete pieces to the puzzle to come/
When His goodness leads men to put their trust in the Son… yes


Verse 3:
What does it take to make a man turn (repent) /
When God has offered the opposite of everything that man’s earned/
You see God holds every breath/
Of every lung that’s in every chest/
Until it’s time to be buried next/
His goodness should make us throw up our white flags/
Considering the fact that our souls have a price tag/
That only Christ could pay the whole with His life (Dag!)/
Then He rose while we roll in a nice jag/
Man, see every smile that you crack/
Every dollar that you make dirty God allowed that/
All the times that you said, man that should’ve been me/
It could’ve been me laying six feet deep/
All the chances that you had, man you should’ve been stopped/
When them cops stopped you, locked you in the handcuffs/
Now you scot-free/
And refusing to live Godly/
Though you want the benefits of being God’s seed.
