Feature Presentation

Written By: The Divine Soldiers

Feature Presentation

(Chorus)
Here we go (here we go)
We are glad you came enjoy the show
But before we move on
we’ll let you know that we are not the feature presentation
Keep this thing going got to let you know that uh
before we move on our finish this song
Whether at a live show our local radio station
know that we’re not the feature presentation

Verse 1
Thanks for coming out and supporting us brothers
Yeah you've been with us since Ain't No Othas
You check the site and look at the tour dates
To make every single show you can physically make great
You know the lyrics like the back of your hand
And you let us know that you’re our number one fan
But don’t give us flack cuz a matter of fact
We really need to let you know we’re just the opening act
Cuz in this game we’re foreign like Yao Ming
And everything you see we don’t posses one thing
Well if that’s true that’s kinda wack that you sing
Well I really have no problem being wack for the King
But you’ll still get the beats the pop locking
The ripping of the mic and oh yes the uprockin
But we guarantee sometime before we leave
We’ll introduce you to the one you really came to see cuz

(Chorus)

Verse 2
I’m a reflection from the first fruit of the resurrection
You say that your lost and need direction
Well store this up in your IPOD collection
Cuz we spreadin faster than infections
And represent and rock your area
Breaking down spiritual and culture barriers
Just making room for shoes we can’t fill
For there is always was and yes the ever will
Still undisputed yes never defeated
Someone in your life for sure you’ve always needed
Just to get by no I’ll never try
To do anything without the Most High
Yes we’re gonna shine there’s no one finer
So make some noise for the true headliner, (make some noise for the true headliner 2x)

(Chorus)

Breakdown
We’re not the we’re not the feature presentation (2x)

Verse 3
You said you paid five bucks here’s something free
Some people receive it on a bending knee
Just like me who got cut down like a tree
Knocked off my high horse cuz I strayed off the course
And found I ain’t nothing without God for real
Just like Kobe Bryant trying to ball without Shaquelle
Just like Tito Jackson without his brother Michael
With a new beat never been recycled
So listen up class let’s review
We’re not the main attraction more like the previews
Or like the trailers in front of the Lord
With more anticipation then the last Star Wars
Cuz we war against the dark force-a-ses
Spitting our ammunition with our choruses
So keep down loading off Napster son
Cuz you know we won’t stop till the rapture comes cuz

(You no we won’t stop till the rapture comes 4x)

(Chorus)

Start Over

Written By: The Divine Soldiers

Start Over

Verse 1
For about five years of my life I was backslidden
But you know that part of my life I kept hidden
But the one true thing you know I’ve been forgiven
Let me tell you about the story while the record keeps spinning
It happened back before there was that show Barney
And I used to wear clothes from the Salvation Army
I used to get dissed on the playground
No girls wanted to come around me
I used to ask the mirror what was wrong with me
But things changed when I became the age of thirteen
I went to school you know the girls they started flirting
I gained a couple friends you know we had our own click
And things really changed when I had got a job permit
But roller skating was the things you know I used to like
My family had a bible study every Friday night
I’ll save myself till I got married is what I used to say
And I went to church on Wednesday and twice on Sunday
But popularity is a strange thing to this day
Yo everybody wants a piece but there’s a price to pay
And when I got noticed a little more the religion went out the door
I forgot where I came from and began to run
Stepped off the straight road then I started drowning
Looked around and I was in unfamiliar surroundings
And the longer I stayed away I didn’t know where to go
I wanted to turn back then I started saying yo
I am trying to get somewhere but I think I made a wrong turn back there
I can’t even find my destination
Cause I didn’t want to hurt my reputation
But I can’t keep running away from my first love so I turned back
And matter fact He took this Prodigal right back
And loved me like I never left before
Cuz he was right there at my hearts door (Come On)

(Chorus)

Don’t give up because you’re taking a ride on your back
Yo it’s a proven fact we all get off track you gotta
Pick yourself up dust yourself off and start all over again
Seventy times seven is the biblical meaning
To understand that his blood is good for more than one cleaning you gotta
Pick yourself up dust yourself off and start all over again

Verse 2

Now I think back but sometimes it’s hard reminiscing
Even though I’m still a Product of The Rizen
Even though I found my piece missing
My first love and second come together now check it
As a young mix breed nobody envy me
Corn flakes powdered milk and government cheese
To have any kind of meat was a delicacy
When dad lost his job man times was hard
Let me focus I only got a few more bars
How am I gonna get respect with Chuck T’s with no stars
Use this maker and now they can be seen
As a kid fresh rockin them Folo jeans
But I’m not upset mom please let me explain
If I could go back in time I wouldn’t change a thing
Cuz you and dad taught me through all the joy and pain
In this thing here family is the most important thing
But I thought life owed me I started wilin
Freakin Black and Milds and drinking that tea from Long Island
Everyday was St. Patrick’s Day and them green Irish eyes just kept smiling
Till I realized I was getting no where fast
To the narrow path sprinting hit redemption full blast
And I had a need God had the answer
A love to hold me closer than Elton and tiny dancer

(Chorus)

Verse 3
With the force of a million men is how you comin
Soon to be forgotten like Arnold, Willis, and Mr. Drummond
We gunnin you with this holy ordained typhoon
Someday this will be on the old school mix at noon
Cuz ten years down the road they’ll still be bumpin this bass
Maybe someday they be bumpin it in outer space
Until then I will be happy with just walking and
Testifying all around the world for a simple love offering
And let em know it is impossible not to sin
So don’t vote yourself off the island
You gotta pick yourself up dust yourself off start all over again
You want to stop the enemy when he comes to trash
And your foundation is made of twigs and grass
When it gets hit receive a big blast
It’s falling to the ground cuz it wasn’t built to last
Choose His instruction over Ice and gold
Cuz He own more than everything that’s sold
The pursuit of His Word helps you face temptation
His Holy Spirit gives you guidance when trials you’re facin
Don’t become complacent with the walk you take
And if you’re new to the faith give yourself a break
Cuz when you come back to the Lord in happiness he’ll explode
He’ll lace your fingers with rings and give you His finest robe yo

(Chorus)

WITH NO SUPPORT FROM YOUR MOTHER NO EDUCATION
IT AIN’T HARD FOR ME TO GUESS WHAT YOU WILL BE FACING
HARD TIMES, TRIALS, AND ON TOP OF ALL THAT
TO EVERY MAN THAT SAYS HE LOVES YOU, YOU LAY DOWN ON YOUR BACK
BUT WHAT ABOUT YOUR SON WITH NO FATHER FIGURE

AS YOU TUCK HIM IN HIS BED YOU CRY BALL UP YOUR FIST
CONSUMED YOUR GUILT HE DESERVES BETTER THAN THIS

(CHORUS)

VERSE 3

WORK HARD SO YOU GET HOME EARLY

WHY YOUR TWO GIRLS JUST LEFT YOUR SIDE YOUR LIFE
I’M READY FOR YOUR KINGDOM PLEASE TAKE ME TONIGHT

BREAKDOWN

Ghetto

Written By: The Divine Soldiers

Ghetto

Verse1
A.K. Rowdy is the ghetto-est place
You step up here you see the ghetto-est face
And round here we was raised on Tahitian Treat
And Techniques and those old school beats
Be no longer do I mess with those Swisher Sweets
But when it got dark we use to play hide and seek
And after class I use to cut the grass and collect cans
To try to get some extra cash
And at school we use to kick it
And I use to wear the Puma’s with the zipper
Where I use to stick my lunch ticket
And put on the fat laces and start to break-dance
In my brand new parachute pants
And have friends stay the night
But then they’d want to fight
Cuz they didn’t get their turn on Excite Bike
And Double Dribble was the ghetto-est game
When I shot a three I had the ghetto-est range
And back then it was so fun we would act so dumb
We would knock on doors at night and run
And at street football I was a superstar
But sometimes I’d get tackled by a parked car
What I still ghetto in the same since
Just a little bit different from the past tense
No longer do I break out the skateboard
But now I represent my home town and the Lord
So if you ghetto then go ahead and be gutta
Cuz you know I’m still smooth like butta what

(Chorus)
G. is for the way we glorify today
H. hallelujah for the most high praise
E. is for the way we evangelize
T. is for the way that we testify
T. is for the truth that be in out lives
O. original style won’t be compromised
Come on ain’t no othas this times drawling nigh yo we just so ghetto

Verse 2

I’m sick to my stomach of these corny emcees with their fake street credit
Demanding respect but from me thy won’t get it
Cuz I eat the uneducated like they was candy
I see the way they looking yo I know they can’t stand me
But it don’t matter cuz I’m on a whole notha level
A soldier for Christ combat collecting medals
Plus me and God together like NASCAR and gas pedals
And I be from the A.K.Rodwy where thuggin ain’t and act
Cats be strapped keepin their trunk lids cracked
Ball in the summer first sweep the glass
Calling blunt timeouts so they can hit they stash
Metaphor of how ghetto I be picture me
Tuesday 10 o’clock I’m in the grocery
In sweats and wife beater wearing my house slippaz
Buying lotto tickets chips and malt liquor
And I’m so stick of dudes telling our youth
To be strong you got to thug Servant tell them the truth
Living right ain’t weak it don’t make you a sell out

Now help us spell this would and tell them what you about

(Chorus)

Verse 3

The main thing people love about the way we roll
Is the Soldiers don’t talk about what we don’t know
So when we say yo these kids be ghetto
Be from the ghetto better believe that’s so
I know I know this ghetto term gets misused
By those who can’t comprehend the word gets abused
It’s not to be confused with kids with no shoes
That word is poverty people listen to me
Ghetto is a place inside your soul
Some never can see because they don’t believe
Our never have received the gift for you and me
The gift that is free life in eternity
But I be ghetto baggy jeans and Timbs
$500 car $4,000 rims
$3,000 system
No job but I got mad ends on the corner with me and my friends

(Chorus)
