Thought you should know

THOUGHT YOU SHOULD KNOW
This is manie x y’all there are just a number of things that i thot u should know(tysk)
about my life my ministry my music i just tysk
So listen up y’all cos the things that i just tysk
so when you hear me you’ll be filling what i’m saying
yo you know wot i’m saying men
check it out y’all! Yo i just tysk
the manie is from Emmanuel and the X from infinite, tysk
I’m born again but most of the things i talk about i don did it, tysk
Its in my past the power of God took my flesh away and then killed it
I rose again and now i am filled with the passion of the Lord of hosts and His spirit tysk
If you are with God the devil can’t hold you down, you’re untouchable tysk
That when he looks at you all he sees is a puzzle unsolveable tysk
That The feeling you get When you surrender to God is so wonderful,
They may kill your flesh, your spirit’s unslugable
Your destiny with Christ in God is unmoveable tysk
That when you sin and seem to succeed it don’t mean its right tysk
Like when the world is dark from eclipse it don’t mean its night tysk
The kingdom of God is only for those prepared to fight
The good fight of faith live for the right uphold by his grace and not by their might tysk
The bible says that in the last days sin will abound tysk
These are the last days there’s so much sin around tysk
That Your eyes should look up and not be fixed on the ground
Be careful of the multitudes and the crowd, The things that are hip the movies the sound tysk
Listen all men are tempted, good and the bad tysk
Your response is what separates the good from the bad tysk
In the end your life is a product of chances you had
The ones that you did and did not understand
Beware cos not all that looks good will stand tysk
Sex sells so thats what the movies and songs have to offer tysk
If you take filth in, guaranteed your soul’s gonna suffer tysk
You might think you’ll fight it but many have fallen who’re tougher
Men of God raised on the altar, comprise faith when temptation gets rougher

Which one are you

Written By: Manie X

Which one are you?
Yeah, many of you out there think you don’t sin
You know what, maybe you don’t know what sin is

Verse 1
You got the active sinner, catch this sinner, do everything wrong I don’t like this sinner
When he go to church he be acting sinner, and y’all don’t wanna mess cos he be packing sinner
The don’t care sinner, don’t stare sinner, bring anyone down if he don’t fear sinner
Frustrate a man of God if he don’t bear sinner, tell you all the things believers don’t hear sinner
The necking sinner, caressing sinner, beware if your girl he be checking sinner
Never lost a battle we respect him sinner, even if our lives he be wrecking sinner
The popular sinner, actor sinner, smack his mum grab his pops by the jugular sinner
If it fits your status then you must be the sinner, one of those signs that the end is near sinner

Chorus
Yo! Yo! Which on one are you (x 8)

Verse 2
The down south sinner, the dirty mouth sinner, the brother’s so intelligent just hear him our sinner
Got a cool disposition and he never shouts sinner, when he talks you get dirty figuring out sinner
The smooth cat sinner, who’s that sinner, make the girls think abortion is a new route sinner
Got Christians brining back things they threw out sinner, never realising he’s a li’l tout sinner
The argue sinner, my view sinner, can’t take it from the bible its illogical sinner
Just a li’l sin economical sinner, until it adds up to astronomical sinner
The fashion sinner, passion sinner, fornicate as long as its money your cashing sinner
Give your body up to many in a ration sinner, never seen a girl with so much action sinner

Chorus
Yo! Yo! Which on one are you (x 8)

Verse 3
The compromise sinner, God don’t mind sinner, living their whole life on the border line sinner
Quick to pay offering and a lovely tithe sinner, but when it comes to sin their not on a diet sinner
The mundane sinner, unnamed sinner, sleep around yet the church think you’re born again sinner
Forget about the drizzle you just make it rain sinner, but most the church be sinning so they can’t complain sinner
The CEO sinner, the silly ho’ sinner, employ the girl they see in the video sinner
Not for her resume but her booty whoa sinner, by the time they done with her, her booty grow bigger
The massive sinner, the passive sinner, don’t see your type too often you’re a classic sinner
Got sinners on the mic they’re attractive sinner, tell you hit this tap that and smack this sinner

Chorus x 2

Put a little in

Written By: Manie X

PUT A LITTLE IN
Yo! To make a difference in this life, you have to play your part
Put a li’l in get a li’l out (x 2)

Verse 1
Death resides in every body without life, could be father, mother, brother, sister or wife
May’ve been shot by a gun or stabbed with a knife or simply decided to live their whole life without Christ
Not every thing moving is alive, not everything you’re doing is the right or chick your scr*wing is your wife
The fact you go wrong don’t make the world a bad place, it just means that we’re corrupting it with a bad race.
Lets count the cost lets slow down and pause, I’m not trying to say i’m a brother with no flaws
Almost doing stuff right means we break laws, and we’re waiting for the future to change the script for us?
It won’t happen i’m speaking as a captain, the way we be living is how our children will be acting
Reacting is not the way to change nothing, how do i know, its got act in it...quit fronting.

Chorus
Put a lil in get a lil out (x3)
Yo! Yo! Life s like this
Put a lil in get a lil out (x3)
Yo! Yo! Life s like this

Verse 2
Trying to make a change you have to change yourself, ain’t about plush living and amassing wealth
I’m not saying if you got it you should be flying stealth, but being overly conspicuous could be bad for your health
Or maybe bad for your health yeah your brother’s in jail, but it doesn’t change the fact that your body is pale
Eyes blood shot body cold no blood in your vein, how is it that you’re responsible the world is insane?
When was the last time you stopped to think of the next man, of the lives you be crossing to make your next grand
Living life like a monopoly not giving a damn, it’s time you slow down and take a lesson from An...na Nocole Smith money, radical beef money, it isn’t worth your life wot you go’n do with this money
We say money is the root of evil, but when the evil appear we quick to blame it on the devil

Chorus x 2

THE MORE WE PUT INTO THIS LIFE, THE MORE WE GET OUT OF IT...GOD HELP US...CAPISH!

Chorus

Just like you

TRACK 6: JUST LIKE YOU
He left his throne and heavenly abode decided to come down south to make earth his home;
Also had to put up with the things you condone all in a time with no cars or cellular phones;
JC was in the flesh blood and bone, all the pain you feel to him was not foreign;
Passes that the chickies make be making you moan, the same passes were back then but he kept himself holy;
If he had wanted coulda been a true player, cos he had all the gifts of a soothsayer;
Knew that Outkast will release the groove Heya, in 2004 and know wot will happen later;
You got the power don’t mean you should get outta line, he was not an alchoholic but turned water to wine;
I just need all y’all to listen while i’m dropping my rhyme, cos the message here is simple and the thing i’m implying is;

Chorus
I know a man who was just like you
He was living in the land and tempted just like you
He did not fall (he did not fall) x 2
Remember Jesus was a man who was just like you

Verse 2
You start to fail when you compromise, to tell yourself it doesn’t matter come from lies;
See a fly honey yum yum her thighs, wanna look, touch, feel, taste, hmmm bye bye;
It’s the story of a sorry brother coulda been in glory, wasn’t holy now his folly got em to a dark and lonely;
Place that’s scary as hell and it’s hot too Arghh!, look at all the drama that your sinning has brought you;
It don’t have to be like that you can change it, bring the pieces of your life God will arrange it;
Put you back together and make you loon fly, your body, spirit and soul no longer have to die;
It ain’t easy I’m not gonna deny, and if you’re rich a camel may sooner pass through a needle eye;
But we serve a God of impossibility brother smile, say he did it in the flesh dude so can I;

Chorus

Verse 3
Didn’t say don’t have no fun or drink some alcohol, just know that something’s wrong when you’re having a hangover;
Do everything done to moderation; you don’t have to eat up to constipation;
Play with a person up to fornication, it’s wrong whether crooked bi straight or a gay son;
Remember this it don’t matter the occasion, put your foot down and resist the temptation;
Or better yet just avoid the location or substance that will tempt you if it’s drinks then don’t take none;
It’s high time that you quench the desire, or prepare your mind you’re gonna end in the fire;
Ladies make up your mind don’t make up for her man, cos if she catches you i assure you that she will not understand

Chorus x 2
