Fightin sin pt. 2

If you would like to read the first part in this two part series, you can go here.

Here are the lyrics from Tedashii‘s new album Identity Crisis,  song entitled Make War:

[Intro:] ~John Piper~

I hear so many Christians, murmuring about their imperfections, and their failures, and their addiction, and their shortcomings. And I see so little war!…  Murmur, murmur, murmur. Why am I this way?…  Make War!

[Verse 1:] ~Tedashii~

Bang with me/ba-bang bang, ba-bang with me/ No more playing games man/cause this thing can get risky/So man if you in Christ/TAKE UP!!/your cross quickly/Stand fearless on the front line/time to come with it/Do the right thing/WAKE UP!!/and lets get it/I ain’t even in the ring/they throwing bows like Riddick/Persistently attacking me/they’re even in the back of me/It’s either fight or loose my life and I can’t take this passively/So what you think I’m bout to do/I’m bout to do what I can do/Trust the ONE who got me through/and fight like it was after school/Never giving up/steady, standing on the battle field/Feet firm to the ground like I stepped on Chappel Hill/Flesh feeling frisky, sin persuades and tempts me/Satan cheers me on/guilt followed by conviction/It’s the same ol’ trap/and we fall like we defenseless/Work your senses/grow in wisdom/stand firm and be relentless/

Hook:

I MAKE WAR!/Cause sin never sleeps/It’s got me in a trance/you can see it in my dreams/I MAKE WAR!/Man I beat my flesh/To the death/every breath/like I beat my chest/I MAKE WAR/sun up/I MAKE WAR/sun down/I MAKE WAR/time in/I MAKE WAR/time out/I MAKE WAR/against lust/I MAKE WAR/Against pride/I MAKE WAR/ Against me/I MAKE WAR/Until I die/

[Verse 2:] ft. ~Flame~

Do you even have a clue/What happened to you when He died/When that tomb got rolled/ when He rose in the sky/I think we emphasis sin so much/That it makes us paralyzed/And glorify struggle so much/That it makes us terrified/And de-emphasize the fact that we have been sterilized from our own lives and thus/We gotta snap out of it/We ain’t in no straight-jacket/We free/When Jesus died in our lives something strange happened/He gave us power/Yeah I know that we sinners but since He rose He’s renewing the image of God in us/Now, we gotta start making war/Now we can start saying no/To them fleshy impulses that Jesus Christ is paying for/Now we can start taking the lead/Just like the Dalai Lama and start going all out like a suicide bomber/Whatever the sin is we gotta go go go harder/By His grace no time to waste and just just just like there’s no tomorrow/

[Hook:]

[Verse 3:] ~Tedashii~

I’m a Christ representer, fit to stand and deliver/Cause a lot of my believers struggle with their agenda/So I dropped this on an ADAT/just so you could come play back/A hit to be encouraged that rocks you with truth from, way back/So listen up to it ASAP/like you do a Lecrae track/I’m spittin’ written visions to put on heads like a wave cap/Sinning, nawl we don’t play that/cause that’s the way that as slave act/I’m filled with the Spirit so tell them dog this is pay back/As you begin to copy the carbon copies of Christ/And conform to His written image you should be shinning a light/If you not, why is that?/Is it fear that’s been grippin’ you/cause you scared they’ll be dissin’ you/Flipping birds while that spit at you/If you not, why is that?/it don’t matter so bump it/perfect love cast out fear and He ain’t save us for nothing/his is a privilege (privilege)/your life to give to Him (give to Him)/so stand firm for Him dawg and lets get it in/

[Hook:]
