Lyrics

PROPS 2 GOD

Written By: LaVra

IF YOUR HAVING A SET BACK
DON’T TAKE A STEP BACK
ASK GOD TO PUT YOU ON THE RIGHT TRACK
HE’LL BREAK ALL YOUR LIMITATIONS
WE ARE ALL OF HIS CREATIONS
DON’T BE OBSESSED OR DEPRESSED
GET UP, MAKE A PLAN DO THE BEST YOU CAN
UP ON THE STAGE I STAND
GOT THE MIC IN HAND
I LIVE, BREATH AND WORK FOR THE MAN
UPSTAIRS, HE CARES
IF YA DIDN’T KNOW
YOU’RE HERE FOR A PURPOSE, PART OF HIS BIG SHOW
BREAK THE MADNESS WITH OPEN EYES
TRANSFORM YOURSELF, METAMORPHOSIZE
‘CAUSE GOD DOES NOT LIE, THIS IS SO TRUE
STOP YOUR DESTRUCTIVE PATTERN AND COME TO
TURN YOUR DEFEAT INTO A VICTORY
AND PUT YOUR HANDS UP IN THE AIR FOR G-O-D

CHORUS
YEAH, HIS LOVE NEVER STOPS
NOW WE GOTTA GIVE HIM PROPS
I’LL TELL YOU WHEN YOU PRAY
HE’S HEARING EVERY WORD YA SAY
AND HIS SON IS COMING BACK ONE DAY
SO LIVE THE RIGHT WAY
TRUE, YA KNOW, AND PLAIN TO SEE
NOW KEEP YOUR HANDS UP IN THE AIR FOR G-O-D
IT’S GOING DOWN RIGHT NOW AND YOU DON’T WANNA DIS HIM
LISTEN TO HIS WORD AND BE A CHRISTIAN.

UHH, YEAH, YES, THE BEST TEST
ME AND I’LL PAST FAST AND I’M BLESSED FRESH
RIPPIN UP THE MICROPHONE MY MAIN QUEST
IM ALWAYS UP AND READY TO GO WITH NO REST
I CAN’T SLEEP, THERE’S NO TIME FOR NAPPIN’
IT’S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN LIKE THAT I KEEP RAPPIN’
AND I’M RHYMING FOR GOD, IS THAT ODD?
NO, THAT’S MY PART IN HIS BIG SHOW
SO CHECK THE FLOW A PRO WITH RESPECT
YOU CAN HAVE A NATURAL OR DIVINE AFFECT
YOUR PREGNANT WITH POTENTIAL HEAVENS IN RANGE
YOU MAKE THE CHOICE AND GOD MAKES THE CHANGE
CAUSE GOD DOES NOT LIE, THIS IS SO TRUE
STOP YOUR DESTRUCTIVE PATTERN AND COME TO
TURN YOUR DEFEAT INTO A VICTORY
AND PUT YOU HANDS UP IN THE AIR FOR G-O-D

REPEAT CHORUS

REPEAT CHORUS

YOU KNOW NOW-A-DAYS WE GOT THIS RELIGION AND THAT RELIGION
BUT TO ME IT’S ALL A BUNCH OF INSANITY
CAUSE WHEN JESUS ROSE FROM THE GRAVE
HE TOLD PAUL TO SPREAD CHRISTIANITY
AND THAT’S WHY WE’RE HERE TODAY
GIVING ALL THE GLORY TO GOD AND WE PRAY
THE CHRISTIAN WAY, THE CHRISTIAN WAY
IT’S THAT WAY, THAT WAY OR NO OTHER
EVERYONE HERE’S MY SISTER AND BROTHER
I’LL KEEP GOIN AND FLOWIN
I WON’T YIELD
THE FAVOR OF GOD SURROUNDS ME LIKE A SHIELD
GOD DOES NOT LIE, THIS IS SO TRUE
STOP YOUR DESTRUCTIVE PATTERN AND COME TO
TURN YOUR DEFEAT INTO A VICTORY
AND PUT YOU HANDS UP IN THE AIR FOR G-O-D.
CAUSE THIS WASN’T THE PLAN A GOD

THE WORLD'S TRIPPIN’

Written By: LaVar

I DON’T UNDERSTAND WHY THE WORLD IS THE WAY IT IS
AND WHY WE DON’T GIVE A HOOT ABOUT THE FUTURE KIDS
ARE GONNA LEAD IF WE CONTINUE TO FEED
THEM WITH THE EVIL WERE SUPPLYING THAT THEY WATCH AND READ
TURN YOUR SETS ON, TELL ME WHAT DO YOU SEE
AIN’T NOTHING ON T.V. RATED G
THERE’S A REAL CONSPIRACY SWEEPING THE NATION
T.V, MOVIES, RADIO STATIONS
PLAYING ALL THIS BAD CONTENT GOT YA BENT
THEY MUST NOT REMEMBER THAT OUR FATHERS SON WAS SENT
FROM HEAVEN AND HIS REASONS WERE REAL, WHAT’S THE DEAL
WHY IS EVIL ALWAYS GAINING SUCH A MASS APPEAL
BECAUSE THAT’S ALL THEY PLAY, EVERY NIGHT AND DAY
LETS TALK ABOUT THE MUSIC, AND THE STUFF THEY SAY
IT’S OK IF YOU DRINK AND DRIVE, GET HIGH, CALL YOUR GIRL A -----
TAKE A LIFE, THE WORLDS TRIPPIN, THE WORLDS TRIPPIN
THIS KID HE HEARD YOUR SONG GOT A GUN AND THEN PUT THE CLIP IN
AN INFLUENTIAL HEAD HE HEARD THEN DID WHAT YOU SAID
NOW SOME OTHER FAMILY’S CRYING CAUSE THEIR LITTLE ONES DEAD

CHORUS:
THE WORLD’S TRIPPIN, THE WORLD’S TRIPPIN
LETS COME TOGETHER ALL READY AND STOP SLIPPIN
WE’LL FLIP THE SCRIPT REAL QUICK
AND CHANGE OUR FACADE
CAUSE THIS WASN’T THE PLAN OF GOD
THE WORLD’S TRIPPIN, THE WORLD’S TRIPPIN
LETS COME TOGETHER ALL READY AND STOP SLIPPIN
WE’LL FLIP THE SCRIPT REAL QUICK
AND CHANGE OUR FAÇADE CAUSE
THIS WASN’T THE PLAN OF GOD.

YOU CAN GO TO ANY HIGH SCHOOL AND YOU’LL FIND SOME FOOL WHO’LL
BE SMOKING CIGARETTES AND BUFFING LIKE IT’S COOL
BUT IT, ISN’T HIS FAULT THOUGH I SAY
IT SHOULDN’T BE A LEGAL SUBSTANCE ANYWAY
IF CIGARETTES WERE ILLEGAL THEN THEY CALL ‘EM A DRUG
BUT SINCE THERE LEGAL, THEY SWEEP THAT TERM UP AND UNDER THE RUG
WHETHER YOU SHOT IT, DRINK IT, SNIFF IT, EAT IT, OR ROLL IT
IT SEEMS TO ONLY BE LEGAL IF GOVERNMENT CAN CONTROL IT
BUT HOLD IT WAIT I HATE TO EVEN UPSET YOU ALL
BUT WE CAN PROBABLY REALLY DO WITHOUT ALCOHOL
IT DOES NOTHING BUT HURT US AND TAKE US WAY OFF COURSE
YOU KNOW ABOUT DRUNK DRIVING AND IT CAUSES DIVORCE
MADE A MAN DO SOMETHING HE WOULD OF NEVER DID
GOT DRUNK AND LIKE A PUNK HE HIT HIS WIFE AND KID
SO HE MAY NOT WANT TO HEAR THIS
BUT I INSIST TO PUT THE MIC IN MY FIST
AND PROCEED TO TELL IT LIKE IT IS

REPEAT CHORUS

WE BETTER STOP FOR A SECOND I RECKON AND REWIND,
WERE LIVING ONLY IN THE MOMENT BUT THE BOTTOM LINE,
SHOULD BE THE FUTURE OF OUR KIDS REMEMBER COLUMBINE
IN MY OPINION THAT WAS MORE THEN JUST AN OBVIOUS SIGN,
I’M BACK TO THE MOVIES AND MUSIC, SO ABUSIVE AND USELESS AND TO
THE MASSES THERE SUPPLYING THE NOOSES,
OVERLY GRAPHIC MOVIES ALL ABOUT KILLIN,
ANOTHER BLOOD SPILLIN RUTHLESS PSYCHOTIC VILLAIN,
ON THE SCREEN SO OBSCENE NO MEANING AT ALL TO THE PLOT,
MINIMAL DIALOG THEN YOUR STABBED OR SHOT,
WE’VE GOT, TO STOP SHOWING ALL THIS VIOLENCE,
BECAUSE UNFORTUNATELY SOME MIMIC WHAT THEY SEE,
YEA, AND A LOT OF THESE GANGSTER MC’S
WANNA BRAG ABOUT THE TRIGGER THEY SUPPOSABLE SQUEEZED,

HOW YA LIVIN’?

Written By: LaVar

I AM THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD
HE WHO FOLLOWS ME SHALL NOT

IF YOU WERE BLIND YOU WOULD HAVE NO SIN
BUT NOW YOU SAY WE SEE
THEREFORE YOUR SIN REMAINS
AND TO BREAK THE CHAINS
AND REMOVE THE STAIN

SO LET ME LEAD YOU INTO A LIGHT THAT'S NEVER DIM
LET YOUR LOVE BE SINCERE

OUR FATHER UP ABOVE WHO HELPED ME WRITE THESE RHYMESSO TELL ME HOW YOU'RE LIVIN'
HOW IS IT YA LIVE
FORGET ABOUT TAKING CAUSE IT'S TIME TO GIVE
YOURSELF TO THE GIVER OF THE GIFT AND UPLIFT
WATCHOUT FOR THE DEVIL AND MOVE SWIFT

GOD'S GOT YOUR BACK AND HE'S GOT MINE
LET JESUS IN YOUR HEART AND YOU'LL DO JUST FINE
YOU DON'T NEED A FANCY CAR
OR A HOUSE ON THE HILL
RICH OR BROKE, IT DOESN'T MATTER 'CAUSE HE LOVES YOU STILL
BUT YOU GOTTA MAKE A CHOICE
AND TO BE PRECISE
ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS GIVE YOURSELF TO CHRIST
HE WAS ASKED, "WHO ARE YOU?"
THIS MAN WHO'S NEVER SINNING
JESUS SAID WHAT I'VE BEEN SAYING TO YOU FROM THE BEGINNING
I HAVE MANY THINGS TO SAY AND TO JUDGE CONCERNING YOU
YOU NEED TO KNOW THE ONE THAT SENT ME HERE IS TRUE
AND I SPEAK TO THE WORLD THOSE THINGS I HEARD FROM HIM
YOU NEED TO READ THE BIBLE
AND PUT GOD INTO YOUR BRAIN
IF YOU ABIDE BY MY WORD
YOU ARE MY DISCIPLES INDEAD
AND YOU SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH
AND THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE
HE WHO SPEAKS FOR HIMSELF
SEEKS HIS OWN GLORY
HE WHO SEEKS THE GLORY FROM THE ONE WHO SENT HIM IS TRUE
SO I WANNA LET YOU KNOW WITHOUT FURTHER ADUE
EVER WORD THAT YOU HEAR THAT I AM GIVING TO YOU
DIDN'T REALLY COME FROM ME OR EVEN FROM MY MIND
I JUST TOOK THE WORDS FROM JESUS AND I MADE THEM RHYME
KNOW WHY, BECAUSE IT'S TIME FOR THIS
A REAL RHYME LIKE THIS
I HOPE YOU'RE FINE WITH THIS
AND BUILD YOU MIND WITH THIS

CHORUS
SO TELL ME HOW YOU'RE LIVIN'
HOW IS IT YA LIVE

YOURSELF TO THE GIVER OF THE GIFT AND UPLIFT

I WILL COME TO YOU
I COMING BACK SOON
SO PREPARE FOR PART TWO
A LITTLE LONGER IN THE WORLD WILL KNOW ME NO MORE
IF YOU'RE LIVIN BY MY WORD
YOU'RE GOING TO KNOW ME FOR SURE
BECAUSE I LIVE

IN THE HANDS OF GOD

Written By: LaVar

GOD IS ALWAYS WORKING IN MYSTERIOUS WAYS
I HAD A BABY ON THE WAY I WAS EXCITED TO RAISE
IT DIDN’T HAPPEN THOUGH SOMETHING WENT SO TERRIBLY WRONG
UNFORTUNATLEY THAT’S WHY I’M WRITIN’ THIS SONG
IT’S FOR JENNIFER BLAKELY AND OUR UNBORN SON JORDAN
I’LL NEVER KNOW IT BUT I’M SURE IT WOULD HAVE BEEN SO REWARDING
NOW I’M FEELING REAL PAIN
WILL IT HURT ME FOR LONG
I DON’T KNOW IF I CAN TAKE IT
‘CAUSE I’M NOT THAT STRONG
I’M GUNNA HAVE TO I GUESS AN
FOR THE REST OF MY DAYS
I’LL BE WAITIN’ TILL I GET TO COME AND SEE YOU AND PRAISE
GOES TO JESUS ‘CAUSE HE DIED FOR ME UP THERE ON THE CROSS
NOW I HAVE A CHANCE TO BE IN HEAVEN TOO WITH NO LOSS
YEAH, THIS IS THE WAY IT IS NOW BUT MAYBE IT’S A FAVOR
THEY’RE UP IN PARADISE WITH OUR LORD, FATHER, AND SAVIOR
JESUS, PLEASE JUST KNOW THAT I’LL GO ALONG WITH YOU AND YOUR
PLANSI KNOW MY FAMILY’S SAFE AND IN THE HANDS OF GOD

CHORUS

IN THE HANDS OF GOD
THEY’RE IN THE HANDS OF GOD
IN THE HANDS OF GOD.
THE BABY’S SAFE IN THE HANDS OF GOD

THE BIRTH OF A BABY IS A GIFT FROM GOD
WHEN YOU LOSS YOUR BABY YOU GO CRAZY, IT’S SO HARD
I KNOW WHEN I DIE, I’M GOING TO SEE ‘EM IN HEAVEN
BUT I NEVER GOT TO MEET ‘EM
WISH THAT I MET HIM
JUST LET HIM
KNOW THAT I WAS ALL EXCITED
MORE THAN HAPPY TO BE
A FATHER TO MY SON
A LOVING NEW DAD-DY
AND SHE WAS JUST A MONTH AWAY FROM HAVING OUR FIRST BORN
I NEVER GOT TO SEE HIM, IT’S HARD NOT TO MOURN
I GOTTA CALL FROM JEN’S MOM
I JUST COULDN’T RESPOND
SHE SAID, I’M SORRY CHRIS, OUR LITTLE BABY JORDAN IS GONE
TWO DAYS LATER, JENNIFER THEN TOO PASSED ON
I WAS IN MY ROOM ON MY KNEES
GOD, WHAT’S GOING ON?
HE SAID THEY’RE UP HERE, AND THEY’RE BOTH WITH ME
LIVING IN A PARADISE FOR ETERNITY
JESUS, PLEASE JUST KNOW I’LL GO ALONG WITH YOU AND YOUR PLANS
I KNOW MY FAMILIES SAFE AND IN THE HANDS OF GOD

REPEAT CHORUS

I KNOW, I KNOW IT LOOKS HARD RIGHT NOW
BUT IF YOU, IF YOU JUST HOLD ON
IF YOU JUST TRUST IN HIM
HE’LL SEE YOU THROUGH, YEAH
‘CAUSE IN HIS HANDS IS WHERE THEY ARE

LIVING WITH THE LOST IS SOMETHING HARD TO DO
YOU FIND YOURSELF ASKING HOW COME ME BUT YOU
NEED TO HAVE THE FAITH AND KNOW THAT FAMILY OR FRIEND

THIS ISN’T THE END YOU’LL SEE ‘EM AGAIN
TOO MANY TIMES WHEN I WROTE THESE RHYMES
TEARS FROM MY EYES DROPPED ON THE LINES
OF COURSE I’M SAD, NOT MAD, BUT HAD
I GOT TO BE A DAD
IT WOULD OF BEEN GREAT BUT WAIT
I’LL SEE YOU WHEN I GET TO THE GATE

UNTIL THEN, I’LL REMEMBER, THAT YOU’RE SAFE
AND IN THE HANDS OF GOD.

CHORUS
THE MOTHER’S SAFE IN THE HANDS OF GOD
THEY’RE IN THE HANDS OF GOD
IN THE HANDS IN OF GOD
THE BABY’S SAFE IN THE HANDS OF GOD
IN THE HANDS OF GOD
THEY’RE IN THE HANDS OF GOD
IN THE HANDS OF GOD
THE MOTHER’S SAFE IN THE HANDS OF GOD

YOU’LL FIND IT THERE, YEAH
IN THE MIST OF THE STORM
YOU’LL FIND PEACE, LOVE, JOY, AND HAPPINESS, HAPPINESS
OH, YEAH, YEAH. PEACE,
IN THE HANDS OF GOD.

HIP HOP 4 GOD

Written By: LaVar

HANDS UP HIGH
TOUCH THE SKY
KEEP ‘EM THERE
CLUTCH THE AIR
AND WAVE ‘EM SIDE TA SIDE
LIKE YOU JUST DO CARE
IT’S HIP HOP FOR GOD
HIP HOP FOR GOD

I’VE BEEN RAPPING FOR YEARS
I GOT NO FEAR
ON THE MICROPHONE
I’M BUSTING TO MY PEARS
IN THE PEWS AT THE CHURCH
WHERE THE PEOPLE PRAY
I’M GUNNA KICK IT THAT WAY
UNTIL A GRAVE I LAY
I PUT THE PEN TO THE PAPER
IN MY LYRICS GO

REPEAT CHORUS
YEAH, IN THE BEGINNING, GOD CREATED HEAVEN AND EARTH
WE’RE ALL HIS SONS AND DAUGHTERS AND AT BIRTH YOU’RE WORTH
MORE THAN YOU KNOW AND SO YOU’RE NOT LOST
SENT HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON TO DIE ON THE CROSS
FOR ME, THEE, YOU AND YOURS
SO WE CAN BE WITH HIM AND PASS THROUGH HEAVEN’S DOORS
OTHERWISE IT’D BE OUR GREAT DEMISE
OPEN YOUR EYES
NON-BELIEVERS BETTER RECOGNIZE
THERE’S A LOT OF TURMOIL TODAY AND IT’S SO
LAME SAYING ANY EVIL WAR IS OCCURING IN GOD’S NAME
I’D RATHER BE KINGDOM BUILDING
GOD DOESN’T LIKE ANYONE KILLING HIS CHILDREN
WOMEN AND MEN, WHATEVER IT’S ALL WRONG
ANOTHER REASON THAT I WROTE THIS SONG
AND ANY AEITHIEST DISSIN’ ME, THAT’S OK,
IT’S NOT YOU I HAVE TO ANSWER TO ON JUDGEMENT DAY.
BUT ANYWAY
THAT’S OK
IT’S NOT THEM I HAVE TO ANSWER TO ON JUDGEMENT DAY
I’M GONNA RAP THIS WAY
AND KEEP IT REAL TRUE
I’M DOIN’ HIP HOP FOR GOD ‘CAUSE HE TOLD ME TO
HANDS UP HIGH
TOUCH THE SKY
KEEP ‘EM THERE
CLUTCH THE AIR
AND WAVE ‘EM SIDE TA SIDE
LIKE YOU JUST DO CARE
IT’S HIP HOP FOR GOD
HIP HOP FOR GOD

REPEAT CHORUS

HIP HOP FOR GOD, THAT’S THE STUFF I DO
BECAUSE HIS SON SAVED ME AND HE SAVED YOU TOO
I GOTTA GIVE IT UP TO ‘IM
ANY WAY I CAN
I’M A SPECIALIST IF THERE’S A MICROPHONE IN MY HAND
SO I RAP BUT IT’S ONLY HIP HOP FOR FATHER
DEMONS DON’T BOTHER
I’M POPPIN’ MY COLLAR
PULLIN NO PUNCHES
AND IT NEVER STOPS
FROM NOW ON WHEN I RHYME
I’M GIVING GOD HIS PROPS
I TURNED MY MESS, INTO A MESSAGE
MAYBE, IT MIGHT BE HARDER ‘CAUSE I LOST MY BABY
BUT GOD’S THE MASTER, WITH THE MASTER PLAN
FEEDING ME THESE LYRICS FOR MY FELLOW MAN
SO I FLIP IT, RIP IT, IN THE PLACE TO BE
THE FIRST TIME I PERFORMED AT ICLV
LIKE THAT ON THE STAGE I SEEMED TO ROCK THEM ALL
WITH PERMISSION FROM MY FRIEND, AND FROM OUR PASTOR PAUL

REPEAT CHORUS
