Hook:
Brothers are we lovers of pleasure or of God?/
If not then letís cross to the other side
Sisters Yes do a check for self respect/
Check donít sell it for wealth and regret
Families what up stay together pray together/
Brave the elements of weather/
Whether itís sunshine or rain/
Do that thing like itís your day job/
Work it overtime over time weíll makeíem praise God

Verse 1
When they look theyíre shook/
Theyíre like whereíd you get your wisdom from/
I bet itís from that book/
ĎCause we donít point to us/
We stay pointed up/
This is how God appointed us to live/
He entrusts His kids with a road map to peace/
ĎCause the streets is like the Middle East/
A beast but He teaches us to say no/
To desires that rage like fires in our souls/
Then He goes and shows us whatís best/
And gives us His mind to help us say yes/
And He tells us stay blessed/
And to walk in the light/
And live like itís day and not get lost in the night/
He helps us to desire what we should/
And protects us like a fence unless itís all good/
Now you can climb His barbed wire/
And get scared by it but howís that gonna makeíem lift God higher/

Hook:

Verse 2
Poc made it cool to be a thug/
Why not be the one to makeíem say/
ďOk made it cool to be in love with GodĒ/
Or ďpop ainít no fool he put his trust in GodĒ/
I remember when I was in school I put in plugs for God/
Back then it was hard to try to find/
The balance between the daily and the divine/
Now I find that itís just one of those things/
That for the Christian those two are one in the same/
Itís not something we construct ourselves/
Scripture instructs us how to conduct ourselves/
Weíre still human beings still humans seeing/
And doing as humans do itís just our views are changing/
We donít laugh at all the jokes/
Especially when the hope that we hold is called a hoax/
No club and bed hoppiní/
Itís tuff not to sin when youíre constantly breaking your neck watchiníem/
I know she ainít have to where them jeans like that/
But that donít mean you gotta stare all at her seems like that/
It seems like thatís the hardest part of all/
Is how to stand strong after standing for the alter call/
But we gotta learn to say no/
Sometimes we gotta lay low/
Not that we rockiní halos we just gotta stay on or J.O./

Hook:

Verse 3:
You can clock out but Iím punching mines/
Hard workers are gettingí harder to find/
Like itís quarter to lunch time/
But I know some they aint liviní ho-hum/
They go gung-ho for the Son/
Itís not an issue of going to work or not/
Tellíem Tonic
When youíre heavenly minded itís the only choice you got/
And ambassador told us Christ soldiers/
Like rolling with Him now no more wait til this lifeís over/
Truth gave a shout to my Christians in school/
Who decided to be more Christian than cool/
And sometimes when youíre liviní the truth/
You donít have to say a word Ďcause your life is the liviní proof/
Thatís Badia Jeter she said it the sweetest/
Iím a spokes model on the runway for Jesus/
See our job is to find life and define life without going outside of our God/
I go to work like itís 9 am/
Trying hard to find me a friend who reminds me of Him/
Be distinct donít let the lines blend/
To where they canít tell where you start and the carnal mind ends/
