Album: Trinity (2016)

[Verse 1]

Back with immaculate flow, attackin the track like a pro
although with a crack in his soul, sad with the path that he chose
ran outta gas on the road, had to get back to the goal
laugh at the past with a glow, that’s when he had to of known
‘yeah there’s gotta be more to this life than these show,
or rackin up another stupid notch in the post, man’
it’s time to deliver, some unequivocal scripture
from the biblical figure, the world is tryna get rid of
and I was even warned that I was gonna be hated by you
because of my belief in Him but in the end we gonna win
I’m tryna comprehend, how you know better than The One
Who spoke everything into existence, man, you think think the business
must have missed it can’t pretend, used to think the same
my regimen?  stoppin the resistance, hit my knees in submission
now I’m free from my cage tell me how you gonna rattle it?
The Fighter on my team, He ain’t never lost a battle yet

[Chorus x 2]

Tell me why.  Why do we pray only when we need?
Tell me.  How can I change for the better me?
Show me the path to take when I can’t breath
Tell me.  How can you have faith if you don’t believe?

[Verse 2]

Man, I sold out with my soul out til my whole house
No doubt, came crashing down straight blowout
Life:  10 Rip: 0, will I ever win?
when I give it up for me and I give it all for Him
used to care about swimmin in women, with a minimum
million in the bank and I gotta have some fame
even got it tatted on my leg, young and dumb
how could a young kid be so insane, thinkin those will ease the pain?
not one of my accolades had me livin happily
man, it’s all a vanity so I lost my sanity
got sick of livin in a fantasy without a purpose
drainin from my soul was it really even worth it!?
I wasn’t the best man I coulda been
now I’m strivin to be, what I shoulda been
like I was born again and Christ died for my sins
man it’s never too late for one to search from within

[Chorus]

Tell me why.  Why do we pray only when we need?
Tell me.  How can I change for the better me?
Lord, show me the path to take when I can’t breath
Ask me:  Why do I have faith?  It’s because I believe?

Now every day I pray it’s a brand new me
