LECRAE

LECRAE - Gravity

rate me

Intro (Lecrae):

It’s Gravity

Keeps pullin’ me down

Verse 1 (Lecrae):

I pen songs for the perishin and parishioners

Them hearers and them listeners, the home and the visitors

This is not a game, you can't tame or make it purty

They say the earth cursed, so our mouths stay dirty

This mud on the track, a slug in ya back

Police done pulled you over wit a gun in ya lap

And you ain't got the power to make it through this parade

The workers can't keep the profit - everything here is vain

My job is oppressive, I strive for my blessings

The pastor so corrupt it's hard to ride with his message

Riches destroy the owners, the government think they own us

My onus is to keep the police from ridin all up on us

Leavin money to kids who spend it on getting bliss

Say, what's the point of living just to give it up in the end

Then again, all my sin has been pinned to the cross

I know I'm free forever from this land of the lost

Hook (J.R.):

Yeah, every time I think I'm flying

I'm just falling

So close to touching the sky

But gravity keeps pulling me back down

But I can't stay here forever

I want to go, ooh one day!

I want to go

Somewhere where there's no gravity

Where there's no gravity, yeah

Verse 2 (Lecrae):

Somebody once told me there was no such thing as truth

I said, if that's the case then why should I believe you?

Murder, money, and mayhem, every place that I lay in

My problems follow suit, I'm tailor-made for this, ain't I?

It's deep. You wanna go deep? I'll take you deep

Reality is really just cheap

Yo eyes wide open apparently, but you sleep

And everything you have in your hands you'll never keep

So why hold on, I flow on to go on, before long I float on

Eternal life is what I'm thinkin I'mma bank my hope on

Believe me, easy is irrelevant

The devil want us burning for the hell of it

Elephants in the room say we can't talk about impending doom

Or we gospel rappin or preaching people out of they shoes

It's cool, I'll be that dude. We glued to our depravity,

Until somebody free us from this gravity. Fly!

[Hook]

Yeah, every time I think I'm flying

I'm just falling

So close to touching the sky

But gravity keeps pulling me back down

But I can't stay here forever

I want to go, ooh one day!

I want to go

Somewhere where there's no gravity

Where there's no gravity, yeah
