Flame - Give Us The Truth
(from the album Flame)
© copyright 2004

Verse 1:
All I ever wanted was to know the truth/
Seeking Jesus at 16 meaning my middle youth/
Man I really hungered and had this inner thirst/
Absurd the thought of me even missin' a day of church/
Man it felt like heaven, especially Bible study/
I had my Bible pen and pad sittin' next to my buddies/
The Word had us open especially certain verses/
Spendin' hours in worship man it just felt so perfect/
And then after the service out on the parking lot/
Laughin' and rappin' for hours afterwards we talked a lot/
Felt like your second family for me felt like my first/
We lost our ties when my grandmother died I kept in hurt/
Remember certain ministers inspired you to learn/
You had anxiety inside and just waitin' your turn/
People announce they callin' jumpin' and shoutin'/
That dun dunt dun dunt it was so arousin'

Give us the truth that's what we need/
lying leaders been deceivin' us since we were seeds/
Give us the truth that's what we need/
Teachers and preachers teach us the things that set us free/
Give us the truth that's what we need/
Parents teach us bout Jesus before we get older/
Give us the truth that's what we need/
Sin is spreading and the world is getting colder

Verse 2:
Then that first year progressed and turned into
Learning so much and I'm comin' in touch closer with
Some things were gettin' sticky I mean real sticky/
I'm trippin' I'm wonderin' was Jesus even really with me/
Man I felt numb meanin' I lost my feelin'/
People standin', dancin', liftin' hands while I was chillin'/
No longer loved the sermons felt like I wasn't learnin'/ The topics taught on weren't touchin' my inner yearnings/ And then some behavior seemed like counterfeit revival/
I looked for Scriptures that supported this off in the Bible/
Yet I couldn't find it I felt blinded/
I thought it was a demon in error I tried to bind it/
But nothin' happened here comes depression/
Maybe when they threw the Holy Spirit that I didn't catch
Did I miss my blessin'? Felt unprotected/
In the midst of a war scarred without my weapon


Verse 3:
Then I left St. Louis on a tour with Cross Movement/
And who would have knew it these dudes have also been through it/
I shared my brokenness feelings of hopelessness/
For so long faked my emotions no one even noticed it/
Yet it was obvious God in His providence/
Put me with people to guide me and got me outta this/
And then my other brother T.R.U.T.H. began to share the same/
I almost wept I saw the steps it took to bear the name/ Without truth left me in utter confusion/
Without truth left me with subtle delusions/
Without truth no longer fought to win/
Without truth drove me back into sin/
The depth of this journey can't be described in words/
This is just the tip of the iceberg/
But from now until my death this is what I'll do/
I'm learning standing and I'll fight for truth
