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

I wanna be closer to you
I wanna be to be your heartís 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 wonít 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 gettingí 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 lockiní 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 clichťs
What you want is for me to obey
And if I canít give that then I canít give jack
You donít 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
thereís more to give and I can still hear you saying to me


Dad, I love you, and you know itís true
But I donít show it all the time when Iím going through
Itís hard to stay in front of you
Focus ainít easy, cats are greasy
The worldís system is setup to deceive me or leave me
I know thatís 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, Iím the one trippiní
If we seem distant Iím the slippiní
Youíre the same as You have always been and will be
Representing You is what fulfills me

The Tonic:
God, I say youíre 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 itís the fight of my life, to get at You
Thatís why Iím so glad you donít do it likeÖI
Patience and love: you donít do it likeÖI
Forgiveness and stuff: you donít do it likeÖI
Even though I play you shy
Ďcause Iím a model of the man
who be following the plan
But like the hood be saying,
ďYo, holla at your man!Ē
You say, ďholla at your God,Ē
and read the love letter I inspired,
youíre never satisfied until youíre 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 Iím active in the ministry,
All that, and I can still hear you saying to me
