Verse 1: 3 months in, and weíve stayed between the righteous
Jesus Christ be the Lord of our Love ones.
No ones home and she needs company for the feast,
that she was cooking so I slid on over to her piece.
Got on my eats, sheís my peeps and I know Iím blessed,
but in a flash, trash is rising up in my flesh.
Our talks are pure, nothing but about the Good Shepherd.
But Honey got a walk more badder than a black leopard.
My old mastersí back, trying to drown the voice of my Teacher,
like something Jurasic vs. My new creature.
Both of our Christian eyes caught one another scopiní.
We couldnít front, we knew we both were open.
What da deal, this ainít the way to go for Godís anointed,
the last thing we want is a Holy God disappointed.
But what the heck, a peck wonít take us cross the fine line
Oh my God her lips just turned into some Bon-Bonís.
Now Iím locked, I wanna stop, Lord Jesus help me,
Oh yeah, you said if I resist the devil he would flee.
And you also said that I should flee youthful lust,
but my legs our stupid heavy and my feet are stuck.
I know in marriage is where youíll give me the whole bunch,
but now sheís smelliní sweeter than peanut butter Capín Crunch.
And Lord you know what thatís been doing to a brother lately,
Father forgive me, I think Iím going crazy.
Chorus: Temptation, now or later,
less or greater,
keeps war between my nature,
totter, teeter, stronger, weaker, old master vs. Teacher,
Creature Double Feature.
Verse 2: Friday night, got liberty to do it all.
But that ainít wise, cause even got liberty to fall.
Iím Saved, Eternally Secure, and being Sanctified.
Whoever said Christian life is all fun, then they lied
Now Jesus is my Lord, and ainít no doubt about it,
but itís 10 p.m., clubs are open, and theyíre bout it, bout it.
And I know all the world has to offer is obituary,
but Iíll kill myself if I play another game of Pictionary,
Monopoly, Taboo, Bowling or even Guesstures.
Freaks are coming out, and itís the end of the semester.
Deep down I feel the Spirit really urging me to stall,
but am I more of a Christian locked inside these four walls.
God, was I snatched from death to now live like a hermit,
if this is a lesson, teach me, because I canít discern it.
But I guess it ainít right for me to get all excited
and race out to the party where you ainít even invited.
WORD BOND!, they ainít lettiní you in, and this I know.
Theyíll make you stand outside, while inside we say, ďHO!Ē
And you probably would wait there for me until I got my freak over,
but that ainít right to do to a person whoís name is Jehovah.
Help me, I see it ainít cool if you ainít welcome LORD,
but Iím still contemplating going because a brothers bored.
Verse 3: Well now, Christian am I, Reborn, Rebuilt
When Christ comes to bust the party, Iíll feel no guilt. I got my brand new, ďnot of this world,Ē mind set rolliní
and though still ďin this world,Ē itís so hard to let go the controlliní.
Smoke at one time, was my passion and fashion. Iíd puff-up all yours, just to keep my own JASMIN.
Habit now a has-been, even though my crew still does it.
I donít touch it, I got new needs, new steez, new budget.
But there is something about today and me in there presence,
though Iíve been around before when theyíve sparked herbal essence.
every round of the cypher, Iíd say no, theyíd still offer,
Lord I wish this was back in the day when I was a cougher.
Cause in those days, ďBrown Sugar,Ē I couldnít stand her,
But Blunt Boot Camp soon made her my commander.
Sheíd say, ďGet up, Stand up, Bluntís is on tonight.Ē
Sheíd say, ďFill-up, Roll-up, cause Trees weíre going to lite.Ē
Yeah, yeah. Sheíd say, ďGet up, Stand up, Lís is on tonight.Ē
Sheíd say ďSpark-up, Puff-up, Itís Natural, Ainít no Wrong or Right.Ē
And now that Iím down with Christ, Iíd thought I would hate the smell of homegrown.
But right now, itís like, ďThe sweetest smell Iíve ever known!Ē
Iím blown, Lord I donít want to go back to the wrong route,
plus this will kill my witness and all that I been sharing about.
Like how God wants to take a man, split and spiritually gut him,
Teach belief in His Son, fill with His Spirit and stuff him,
Lace him, Lick him, heal and reseal the epidermal
then give a Christ-Like spark and let Life burn eternal.
And like how Iím trying to diss the old master to obey my new Teacher
Cause any one in Christ becomes a new creature.
And those who walk in the Spirit will never lack
which means Iím doing something wrong, because I just caught a contact.
I Corinthians 10:13. No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.
