Flame - Goodness To Repentance

rate me

Yea... let me talk to you for a minute

You know I try to keep my ear to the streets right

You know I hear so many war stories man

I hear about so many times cats have been spared

Cats should've been dead

You'd think that would be enough for cats to turn to Christ

But I guess sometimes you gotta learn the hard way

I done heard too many war stories

Seen too many spared

While God still sustain cats that don't even care

Yea you should've got shot

When dem bullets ricocheted

Yea you shoulda got robbed

But grandmamma went to pray

Yea you shoulda got hit by that truck on the road

Ain't no luck when you stuck

With bullet holes in your clothes (homie bang bang)

Five shots could drop me

I took it and smiled

That's a quote from Tupac

Wow... look at him now

Everyday cats duck, dodge, strays from a range

You think it's simply that them shooters just ain't shooting with aim

Naw, a Teflon vest

Ain't the only thing that's stopping them bullets from eating through your chest

How many rappers got shot that's then died?

How many rappers got shot that's alive?

How many shots going bang bang?

Cats trying to gang bang?

How many trying to please God?

God's goodness should lead men to the repentance (it should make you wanna change)

Goodness should lead men to the repentance (it should make you wanna change)

Goodness should lead men to the repentance (it should make you wanna change)

Goodness should lead men to the repentance (it should make you wanna change)

50 Cent took nine shots look at his face

If you look a lil closer you can see God's grace

Lloyd Banks got shot drove himself to the doc

Young Buck got shot but he's still on the clock

Beanie Siegel got shot thank God he's alive

To add to the list

Fabulous got shot in the thigh

Even Camron took one in each of his arms

Are you alarmed? Is this enough to seek a reform?

Even The Game got shot but he still breathing

That's a real reason for people to seek Jesus

Complete pieces to the puzzle to come

When His goodness leads men to put their trust in the Son... yes


What does it take to make a man turn (repent)?

When God has offered the opposite of everything that man's earned?

You see God holds every breath

Of every lung that's in every chest

Until it's time to be buried next

His goodness should make us throw up our white flags

Considering the fact that our souls have a price tag

That only Christ could pay the whole with His life (Dag!)

Then He rose while we roll in a nice jag

Man, see every smile that you crack

Every dollar that you make dirty God allowed that

All the times that you said, man that should've been me

It could've been me laying six feet deep

All the chances that you had, man you should've been stopped

When them cops stopped you, locked you in the handcuffs

Now you scot-free

And refusing to live Godly

Though you want the benefits of being God's seed
