shai linne - Heart First (Remix)
(from the album The Solus Christus Project)

Verse 1
I feel like my brains trapped/
As the rain smacks the outside of my window/
My heart makes tracks, my veins clasp- my instrumentals /
I'm writing over silent tempos as the violent wind blows/
My shy crescendos-why do we dive for minnows/
Wallowing in the shallow end, following hollow trends/
Full throttle for bravos, bottles, models, and lotto wins/
My goggle lens sees humanity facing calamity/
Chasing vanity laced wit profanity-straight insanity/
I state this candidly to healís the goal in my suggestion/
Saying Christ is the answer, but you still donít know the question/
R&B cats on the radio mistake lust for love/
I wanna be thrust above to touch the dove/
To escape the sinful world ransacked by vipers/
Anthrax and snipers, Rikers jam-packed with lifers
When Christ comes His majesty will infiltrate this plane
Heíll disintegrate the pain when He infiltrates His name, soÖ

Verse 2:
shai linne the Soli Deo Gloria fella/
Urban territory dweller, theological storyteller/
Trying to search the mysteries of the Divine is real deep/
Itís like waking up just to find you still sleep/
We thrill seek- Life is precious, many take it for granted/
Paper demanded by lost souls, vacant abandoned/
Naked and stranded-waiting for answers yet hating commandments/
My faith was handed over to me by my Savior who made the planet/
Taking a stand in Philadel- trying to spill it well/
On the real I tell Truth, nobody will chill in hell/
Itís weeping and gnashing, reaching and grasping forever/
But seeking and asking will keep you from crashing, however/
The finite mind canít comprehend the Lordís love/
Came so far to touch us-it ainít like He wore gloves/
Dove HEART FIRST to rescue us from the pit we was in/
Living in sin-Omnipotent King, yet Intimate Friend-thatís whyÖ

Verse 3:
ĎCause I refuse to use manís wisdom/
Iím accused of delusional fanaticism but its musical evangelism/
My lyrics be the tracks and the tracks be the paper/
The spiritís got my back so in fact this can save ya/
From perverts and tricks and murderous kids and/
Itís my earnest conviction, youíre in the furnace of affliction/
Life has come to be a circus-Wonder what defeats your purpose/
ĎCause the one who seeks to hurt us lurks just underneath the surface/
Like DíAngelo said, ďThey want a slice of the devilís pieĒ/
I see the vice in a rebelís eye/
In my city, the strife levelís high; the poor moan, the scorned roam/
Torn homes make residential areas look like war zones/
Christ was broken and murdered so that those who heard it converted/
Wonít be inserted inside the smoking furnace/
Eternal Flame Thrower on some ďGameís overĒ/
Thatís why we praise Jehovah in these last days of Noah/
The finite mind canít comprehend the Lordís love/
Came so far to touch us it ainít like He wore gloves/
Dove HEART FIRST to rescue us from the pit we was in/
Living in sin-Omnipotent King, yet Intimate Friend-thatís whyÖ

Hook:
We worship fervently; All praise to Christ-
Weíll be worshipping for eternity
