Life, liberty, righteousness
and the pursuit thereof
It's tight, might just get
too rough to travel this road
but it's good to know
that for my soul, Christ is in contro!
Life, liberty, righteousness
and the pursuit thereof
It's tight, might just get
too tough to travel this road
but it's good to know
that for my soul Christ is in control

Verse 1:
Since the beginning of my life with Christ it's been shady
I'm not crazy, my light hasn't been bright but hazy,
dimmed by desires within and fulfillment of my flesh
at best let's just call it sin
It is what it is, so I'mma deal with this thing,
put my biz in the street, but be real for the king
even if it kills me, 'cause I've got a strange feeling,
some will draw close and others won't 'cause quite revealing
Don't worry I'm not mentioning names or situations
just maken it plain with some internal observations
keepin' it straight with all the points that I'm statin'
so you don't get tossed, fooled, or twisted by Satan, now take it

Repeat Hook (x2)

Verse 2:
The wild thing is, I've been acting mad childish
But I'm a king's kid, so there should be no hints of foulness
But such a loudness, that it's clearly unmistakable
My Lord and Savior subjected Himself to a breakable
shell that would be impaled, nailed but would rip the vale
and provide a detour for those on their way to hell
Not to tell, well, that would not do Him any justice,
like me for eternity, many have entrusted
themselves to His plan, His hand is fool proof
All God and all man He stands as pure truth
I fall face in hand, He cures from the root,
cleans the heart, makes a man new, I've seen what He can do!

Repeat Hook (x2)

Verse 3:
I've had a sob story for a long time
but this ain't about a kid
who tripped up, fell down, or lagged behind
but a story of one whose overcome
with and by the Son
Spit fire with the tongue
lift Messiah 'til I'm done
The war's been won, but the battle's just begun
Victory as I run persevere 'cause Christ hung,
breath left His lung, death poked fun
and the king resurrected, and guess what?
Death got thumped! No longer with the power to slump
A man if he believes, he can't be plucked from the hand of the son
Who do trust and why do you trust this One?
And when your physicals done? Have they told you what comes?
Life is more than just money, sex, drugs, and guns
I know it don't sound fun but I've got the right One
And when I do die my life has just begun
How could I ever forget the dust is where I'm from?
In the face of opposition I laugh, it's been engrafted
My righteousness is a part of this total package
and so is my eternal security
That's why in all things I do now you can see
me chasin' purity , goodness, gratefulness, loving-kindness,
to live a life of liberty and righteousness for His Highness
I see, LORD, thanks for removing all the blindness
and pressing this coal into an H-Class diamond!

Repeat Hook
