Verse 1:
Light’em up click the switch/
Juice up your watts to the next notch till you find your niche/
I pray God adjust my pitch/
So that my beam comes shining-out clean and rich/
Though I go to illuminate Gods Plan/
Darkness waits for me after the jam/
Now I’m Protestant, which means I’m a protester/
If the world was Sanford, then they would call me Esther/
’Cause some think that the way I live is real ugly/
’Cause some find sin kinda cozy and snuggly/
Com-for-table but still not able/
To tell real truth, from what’s on cable/
’Cause some don’t know, when the light starts shining/
It could light your path or it could start blinding/
Or inspire or maybe set fire/
Or blaze up the wicked, just like a vampire/
Who’s been hit by the rays of the Son, ever dawning/
Who rose over sin real early in the morning/
We let the scripture paint the picture/
Then lay back in God’s Holy rickshaw/
Those with the foul mixture/
Tear to pieces like a jig-saw/
But we say "nix yall"/
And leap the pitfall/
Yeah, yeah, yeah, cause the crucifix-yall/
No arguing or debating/
Just set the record straight about who’s playa’ hatin’

The foul rip Christ and they just won’t stop/
So be not deceived cause God is not mocked/
For what they sow, they’re sure gonna reap/
So just lay back and wait for The Thief/
That’s coming in the night, cause He knows how to/
Creep from Eternity and catch’em like blaaow/
Let’s see what’s said when it’s all said and done/
When they have to come face to face with Playa’ Hater # 1

Verse 2:
If everybody claims to know the problem/
Then how come ain’t nobody solving/
Why do the pains of this world keep coming thru throbbing/
Check the tragedy/
The world prefers darkness, instead of His Majesty/

We push positivity but positivity X-Jesus, is positively/
A good attempted at chivalry/
Hard work ethic, and good discipline/
Won’t score points, even though it’s good dribblin/
It’s the sizzlin’ hot hand/
That puts the ball thru the can/
And God’s Tres’ blaze far away from the range of mortal man/
You can test? But miss? And it’s penalty/
Some slide down to Hell every so gently/
Others say Hell is a conspiracy pushed by believers/
To ruin triple-X sex and take away the real bomb cheeba/
They say it’s all natural and try to make it practi-cal/
And say "You can be down with God, even though you living foul"/
That’s that playa’ mind, they playing God to the left/
But on His right hand is the One who rose over death/
So for those not feeling Him and preferring worldly fun/
Then just call Him "The Wrath": Playa’ Hater # 1
