One time for H time
One time for D time
One time A time, M time
Yea
RIP to Medgar Evers,
RIP to Doctor 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 Imma swallow this pill
Like pac man
Some of these folks wont tell the truth,
Too busy tryna get them racks man
Church tryna rob my paycheck,
Probably was probably having gay sex
Pastor manipulatin, hurtin women,
I wonder what he's gon' say next
Books don't pimpin them hope books,
Like God don't know how broke looks
They tellin me that
I'm gon' reap a meal
If I sew into these low crooks
Plus I know homegirl a freak
Now how she singing a solo?
I walk in the church with a snap back
And they tellin me that that's a no no?
That's backwards and I lack words
For these 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 whilin out,
I can justify all my foolish deeds
Smokin weed, pour it up,
Keep that lid up in my cup
Maybe I can 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'd rather sell my soul to save it,
If that what make my money long
It better not be no real god,
Real hope, that heals hearts
It shows me that I ain't livin up
To all these things he put me here for
It better not be no real church,
Real saints, who pray hard
And let me rock my snap back
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
Weather with you
No we don't wanna see that,
Cuz that might mean a life change
That might mean I work more,
The money, cars, sex and pipe dreams
Better not be no real Jesus,
Real forgiveness, for hurt folks
If God don't take me as I am
I guess I already got on my
Church clothes

    Lecrae puts himself in an unbeleiver's (unbeleiver of jesus christ) position and says how there is so much hyprocrites out there that just hinder christ's name. At the end, when he says 'better not be no real jesus', there's a sense of what-if. The whole message is that so many hiprocrites that send off a negative image of god.

    Why is this thing asking me to write "my" meaning to this song. I didn't write it. Lecrae wrote it. Why not ask what he means. We don't need to ask what does this mean to you, but what did the writer of the lyrics mean.
