Cross Movement - Closer To You
(from the album Holy Culture)
© copyright 2003

I wanna be closer to you
I wanna be to be your heart’s desire
I want to be #1
Even though you play Me shy

I wanna be closer to you
I wanna be all you need
So won’t you give Me a try
And watch Me change your life

The Ambassador:
It's the 2 -00-3 and I'm lovin' it "B"
The blood covenant is still coverin' my brother's and me
Though we all love urban livin'
For us it's not about "herb" and "women"
It's about splertin' the words of heaven
Lord something's still wrong with the picture
I'm working for you daily but barely I'm getting’ witcha
Something's keeping me from gettin' with You
Diggin' in your Scripture for food where there's infinite truth
You get pushed to the side like when I'm cockin' a brim
It's like we're on the couch but we're on opposite ends
Lord, come and put stop to this trend, I'm lockin’ us in
Tonight it's me and You back in the pocket again

The Phanatik:
Goodness gracious, Lord. Anybody in the hood ever taste this before?
Ever been chased by the Lord? Embraced by the warmth of the Son
then end up with their face to the floor?
I love what you cooked up to make me look up
Said I could pick your brain if I picked your book up
And ever since the day you and I hooked up
Life has been super-fly like Jimmy Snuka
But I know you want more than Sundays more than clichés
What you want is for me to obey
And if I can’t give that then I can’t give jack
You don’t want just my hands without my heart attached
With out a heart to match, my lip service is dead as artifacts
though I call it worship
And with no ring on my hands and as a single young man
there’s more to give and I can still hear you saying to me


Dad, I love you, and you know it’s true
But I don’t show it all the time when I’m going through
It’s hard to stay in front of you
Focus ain’t easy, cats are greasy
The world’s system is setup to deceive me or leave me
I know that’s where your love comes in
And I know for sure You gonna judge sin
So as I work through life and watch my doctrine closely
I stay close to you so you can get the most of me
Now If things feel different, I’m the one trippin’
If we seem distant I’m the slippin’
You’re the same as You have always been and will be
Representing You is what fulfills me

The Tonic:
God, I say you’re the greatest light of my life
Your cross was the greatest sight of my life
When I believed, the greatest night of my life
Since then it’s the fight of my life, to get at You
That’s why I’m so glad you don’t do it like…I
Patience and love: you don’t do it like…I
Forgiveness and stuff: you don’t do it like…I
Even though I play you shy
‘cause I’m a model of the man
who be following the plan
But like the hood be saying,
“Yo, holla at your man!”
You say, “holla at your God,”
and read the love letter I inspired,
you’re never satisfied until you’re with me
And it gets me:
I study with zeal and with energy,
on a mission to affect the industry
mature in the faith, and I’m active in the ministry,
All that, and I can still hear you saying to me
