Flame - Give Us The Truth Part 2
(from the album Rewind)
© copyright 2006, Cross Movement

Verse 1: After the Platinum Souls Tour I did with Crossmovement/ I said my good byes cause I had to fly back St. Louis/ I left the tour early for my first semester in school/ I was exposed to so much truth that I had to chose/ between what I had learned and what I was taught to do/ at my church home my zone I was so confused/ that first Sunday morning back it was like cultural shock/ watching the shepherd and sheep explode like a soda pop/ that had been shaken they shaken over these shiesty sermons/ people spitiní and shoutiní but nobodyís discerniní/ I left the building my feelings were crushed I felt forsaken/ the one place I was suppose to come for restoration/ and worship of a Holy God and exalt Him in praises/ spent the whole prayer time rebuking at Satan/ spent the whole sermon time just talking about money/ while I was dying inside and spiritually hungry

Hook: Give us the Truth/ Thatís what we need if we gone properly teach/ if we gone seek and we gone properly reach/ Give us the Truth/ Thatís what we need if we gone carry our cross/ if we gone effectively disciple the lost/ Give us the Truth/ Thatís what we need if we gone walk up on holiness and boldness and meek and lowliness/ Give us the Truth/ Thatís what we need in this race we running proper lessons as we wait for His 2nd coming

Verse 2: I left the crib moved into the dorms/ so depressed that I ventured in porn/ it was a crazy thing/I felt a disconnect from Jesusí arms so I ceased to write these rhythms and poems/ to disobey the King/ I told my teachers that I was living in sin/ and my Bible Iíd never read it again/ and threw it in the closet/ and anything that had to do with God Marcus T. he was doing the opposite/ as a lifestyle/ I called Phanatik and Tonic on the cell/ and said from ministry that I was gonna chill/ cause I was in no position/ to minister to anybody at all cause I wasnít sure if I was a Christian/ at that moment dawg I started skippiní classes/ hanginí with the masses/ and my days were black and gray like cigarette ashes/ all I know is that I wanted to die/ but suicide meant meeting the God that I thought forsook me

Verse 3: But it was obvious/ God in His providence/ put me with people to guide me and got me out of this/ during a chapel service a cat name Paul Washer/ preach the gospel and drove me onto the Lordís altar/ and I confess my sin/ and He pressed reset again/ I started over/ and felt like a soldier for Jehovah/ I called my old pastor and apologized for how I behaved/ but as of that day we agreed to go our separate ways/ met this girl named Beth who told me about her church home/ first Iíd visit/ became a member/ and then it was on/ then the pastor gave me a stack of books/ now Iím back with raps and hooks/ took a summer and spent 300 dollars/ on tapes and books and learned from these Biblical scholars/ now Iím back and Iím walking in light liviní my life glorifying Jesus the Christ
