LECRAE - Church Clothes

rate me

R.I.P. to Medgar Evers, R.I.P. to Dr. King

I ain't tryna' hate on my own kind

But Al and Jesse don't speak for me

I'm probably gon' catch some flack man

But I'm-a swallow this pill like Pacman

Some of these folks won't tell the truth

Too busy try'na get them racks man

Church try'na rob my paychecks

Choir members probably having gay sex

Pastor manipulatin' hurtin' women

I wonder which he's gon' slay next

Bookstore pimpin' them hope books

Like God don't know how broke looks

And telling me that I'm gon' reap a meal

If I sow into these low crooks

Plus I know ol' girl a freak

And how she singin' a solo

I walked in the church wit a snapback

And they tellin' me that that's a "no-no"?

That's backwards, and I lack words

For these actors called pastors

All these folks is hypocrites

And that's why I ain't at church

Truthfully I'm just doin' me

And I don't wanna face no scrutiny

As long as the church keep wildin' out

I can justify all my foolish deeds

Smoking weed, pourin' up

Keep that lean up in my cup

Maybe I could change the world

But this porn on my laptop got me stuck

Yeah I know what's right from wrong

But that there ain't gon sell a song

I rather sell my soul then save it

If that's what make my money long

It better not be no real God

With real hope, that heals hearts

That shows me that I ain't livin' up

To all the things that He put me here for

It better not be no real church

Real saints, who pray hard

And let me rock my snapback

With the 501's and the J's on

It better not be no real folk

Who don't think that they better than you

Straight or gay, drunk and high

They walk through the cold and weather wit' 'chu

'Nah we don't wanna see that

Cause that might mean "life change"

That might mean I'm worth more than money, cars, sex, and pipe dreams

Better not be no real Jesus, real forgiveness, for hurt folks

If God gon' take me as I am I guess I already got on my church clothes
