Track Name: Though The Heavens Fall Featuring Leina (Produced by J.D Beatz)
Verse 1

Everybody say they doing what they have to do/ laugh at you when your claims portray an absolute/ they looking mad confused/ say religions a bad pursuit/ but truth is/ I praise him for everyone of his attributes/ whether omniscience/ everything you know is clear/ or your omnipresence/ I know that your right here/ immutability/ so I know that'll never change/ your omnipotence gives me hope in the midst of my pain/ your holy/ just/ I can't help but bury my face/ yet somehow theyre compatible with mercy and grace/ self sufficient/ yet somehow your patient and love/ also jealous/ so we wait for the day that you judge/ we laughed to scorn/ asked what makes us think we're so sure/ cuz everything I've said is hidden inside of your word/ and that settles it/ telling em all I'm resolved/ because your words will stand even though the heavens fall


Verse 2

If I was on the edge/ looking over the precipice/ rifle to my back/ I'm blessed and I won't stress a bit/ the benefits of placing trust in your preeminence are pressed between the testaments and that's what's taking precedence/ the evidence is found from genesis through revelation/ no reservations/ if you said it/ ain't no speculating/ regenerations the seal/ forget my reputation/ know they come to steal and to kill/ prepare for devastation/ but even if the stars collide/ I'm just praying to see your will and my heart align/ you said to search/ and you ain't hard to find/ faithful to the bride since even before the start of time/ and you should know cuz you created it/ Ephesians 1 verse 3 to 6 is what he placed me in/ and that settles it/ telling em all I'm resolved/ because your words will stand even though the heavens fall

Hook - Leina
Track Name: This Is Me (Produced by Makemdef)
Verse 1
I was always the cat that no one wanted to feature/ til I took the necessary steps to elevate my game/ when I hear my lyrics pumping out through the speakers/ a smile comes across my face/ I'm no longer ashamed/ I'm on my feet like sneakers/ out my seat like teachers/ preachers try to reach us but the youth don't ever listen so I'm/ reaching for the bleachers when I'm speakin bout Jesus/ and for that reason/ in the booth they all think I'm trippin/ why?/ when y'all speakin on the beat/ always talking bout your beef/ glorifying the street/ like you reachin for your heat/ but when you meet a guy like me/ it's almost weird to hear a cat that's fully reppin his beliefs/ I know I know/ it can be a little much but/ talking how your guns bust can really get old/ goin on bout such and such/ that'll never be enough/ that's why I'm trying to teach the stuff that will feed your soul

Verse 2
All joking aside/ I speak hope for the lost and the broken inside/ I preach quotes when I know that it could cost me my life/ but that's the price of the call when you reach for the sky/ and this is me/ no ifs ands buts or maybes/ never smoke piff or get drunk/ ppl seem to think I'm crazy/ I'm 22 and I never carried loot/ I don't deal/ did I mention that I'm married too?/ to the love of my life/ that's clutching me tight/ hold her all throughout the day and then we cuddle at night/ when I'm without her/ it almost seems like nothing is right/ I thank The Lord everyday for ways she touches my life/ I've truly been blessed/ it's almost like a dream/ they all say its not real like a movie at best/ I'm able to rest/ without stress/ laying in bed/ I guess peace is real/ word to the angel on my chest

Verse 3
I'm just trying to give them the Gospel/ while they're main focus is stacking figures like a fossil/ bigger than colossal/ my frame of mind's more focused on the art painting pictures like Picasso/ we trying to go where no one's boldly/ gone they claim I'm played out kind of like the Oldie songs/ like that's my only song/ others say I take it overboard like my name is Goldie Hawn/ but my soul be strong because it's his/ rapping like you know he's on because he is/ reason that I'm focused/ only thing that keep me going strong/ when I'm feeling hopeless is knowing that he lives/ and they just laugh at me/ not perfect by any means/ still ain't mastered peace/ and tragically/ that'll probably never be the case/ but I got fam to hold me down/ shouts to pastor Nii/ We just move and ride/ all praises due to Christ who was crucified/ and Christian rapper or rapper thats Christian/ critics sitting want me to choose a side/ but I aint really one for labels/ fine line like a cable the truths inside/ so/ I guess I could go either way/ I'll tell you what/ why don't you decide
Track Name: What We Do Featuring Infinite & Braille (Produced by Heat Up Beats)
Verse 1 - Infinite

Verse 2 - Braille

Now let me ask you/ how you feel about words like repentance/ forgiveness/ and forsaking your sin/ huh?/ you feel the burden that's pressing/ knowing your purchased/ assured by the resurrection/ of the only person perfect/ deserving of introspection/ that's sure to change your direction/ It's purely an interjection/ I'm burying your objections/ I'm worried that your perspectives/ bound to leave you burning/ unless you turn in repentance/ be sure to mention the fact of election/ and sovereignty of God/ to hear it properly proclaimed these days is kinda odd/ but/ it's not a game of round robin/ we're to accurately convey the truth in the form of sound doctrine/ you feel a change yet?/ it's not a feeling once a week like a pay check/ that's a lie/ like safe sex/ I know some Christians will listen and get to dissin/ and say that it's legalism/ start taking shots at religion/ well/ guess everybody's a critic/ but our justification rests on the fact that he's risen/ uh/ not only that/ he took Gods wrath up in my place/ we need a church where these truths are accurately conveyed/ that's hard to find right?/ get your mind right/ you don't need rappers that's stacking acting in the lime light/ what we need is dudes that do the mission/ call it true religion/ point em to truer living/ til God produces true repentance

Verse 1

I feel I'm bout to lose my grip homie/ questioning if the Lord still got his grip on me/ waist deep/ i can see I'm starting to sink slowly/ on the brink/ bout to slip/ and it ain't snowy/ I know that I'm solely the one to blame/ my souls in another frame/ feel lonely and under strain/ bring me back to you Lord/ your holy/ a burning flame/ I'm lowly/ in need of change/ please mold me and rearrange/ remember days/ I was totally unashamed/ repped your name uncontrollably/ locally made it plain/ ain't no time for diplomacy/ globally make a change/ before they perish irrevocably/ hopelessly burn in flames/ man/ cuz ain't no end to eternity/ so how I walk through this life like that don't burden me/ if I'm a Christian/ I was built for adversity/ verbally preach the word cuz we in a state of emergency

Do we even know what our mission be?/ admittedly I used to handle it whimsically/ but the worlds listening/ and we'd be stupid to not include everything that we do as a part of ministry/ every move that we make is examined critically/ they try to say it's all good/ but do It cynically/ how can we expect them to believe?/ when whenever they look at us/ they staring at inconsistency/ huh?/ we speaking to em timidly/ never mention iniquity/ it's sickening to think that we representing the trinity/ visually dumb it down/ they sick of the run around/ so they justified in their disbelief/ ya/ well I'm sick of people dissin me/ I spit it vicious they thinking that I was missin teeth/ Ya they malicious/ ambitious/ trying to get at me/ but I'm a faithful witness/ swinging til the spirit brings relief

Now how you think it's a game/ we living in a world that's twisted/ sick and deranged/ where everybody is a victim/ we sit and complain/ all the while being conditioned/ to think we can change/ but that's a lie/ only the giver gives the gift of repentance/ we sickened seeking contention/ picket preaching prevention/ ditching decent dimensions/ ticking teaching em tension/ while radically reject anything that leads to redemption/ we in the age of deception/ question anything that's connected to correction/ people fight depression/ neglecting forms of confession/ claim their the exception/ but fail to draw the connection/ you really think your better deceived?/ man there's a standard/ nah I never said it was me/ I'm not a pastor/ this ain't some kind of clever conceit/ but you need to turn from his wrath bruh/ repent and believe

Hook - SYD

Verse 2

Nah homie/ you don't need to be concerned with how you living/ specially when you chillin/ always studying religion/ sitting in your kitchen/ face is buried in the scriptures/ James 1 verse 22 my dude/ yo who you kidding/ sit in sin while thinking I won't let it bother me/ don't walk it out but still in love with that theology/ but it's so sick and tragic watching you just get it backwards/ focused on your systematic/ skipping what it's getting after/ all that wisdom/ is it really gon be worth your life/ forget the cost/ cuz that ain't never gonna purchase Christ/ if it's all head knowledge/ then your faith ain't working right/ if that's the case/ it's dead and you don't have eternal life/ what I'm getting at is this ain't just mental assent/ believing facts won't save you if you don't ever repent/ understanding is important and we should believe it/ but it's fruitless if it don't grow our love for Jesus/ he's the focal point
