Artist: The Cross Movement Album: House of Representatives Song: The Rescue Typed by: firstname.lastname@example.org [Tru-Life] Leavin' Bird's Nest, ten o'clock on the dot give the Ambassador a pound, then I reach into my pock to pull out my last ten 'cause he brought me in some snacks to eat while we construct a fat track with heat We started with prayer, so we adjourned the same way if the LORD wills it, then we'll chill another day straight down Catherine Street, we start steppin' him to the 48th and me to the 51st street section Zipped up my coat 'cause it was kinda chilly hit 52nd, and saw some brothers smokin' Phillies Heard one of them say, "Hey, hey. I'm crazy on the next one that comes through with funds Troop, he's gone He can be a she or she can be an it it don't matter, I've gotta get fatter, so I'll make a hit So we proceed with caution movin' kinda slow The Ambassador said, "Life, How you gonna flow? to the new track, come on man you know I'm gonna do that I'll just be me, indeed and stay true Black I gots to bring it, that thing is rugged you gotta love it I'll pray pick up the pen and pad, then rush it Like a linebacker then attack the drums sack the bassline then I'll have to represent the Kingdom We near our destination, caught up in conversation Heard footsteps comin' like someone was chasin' as we turned, I heard a blast saw a flash, felt a burn grabbed my chest as I fell Is it my turn? Hit the ground as I heard the sound of my man say, "Call 9-1-1 now!" Everything was blurry, I heard sirens my chest was on fire, I knew I was dyin' Man, I can't believe it I'm not gonna see this thing through I'll never see my dream come true All that hard work for nothin' Now my thing is busted see that's what I mean when people can't be trusted Now doctors are pokin' and cuttin' lookin' for the sluggin' my chest man, I'm disgusted My will to live gets weaker and my body grows colder looks like this youngin' won't be getting' no older "Doctor, we're losing him! His vital signs have dropped! Check his pulse! There's no pulse! Check his heart! It's stopped! In a fading voice I heard the doctor say "Give me 80 CCs. Everyone, clear the way." All of a sudden, I'm walkin', me and Christ are talkin' I got crazy peace evils no longer hawkin' He said, "Follow me. I wanna show you somethin' Life. You gotta represent. Absolutely no frontin'." Showed me in my mother's womb Showed me as a kid the good, bad, and unmentionables I did Showed me what I deserved then showed me when he saved me what I looked like before and after the Spirit raising Showed me on fire then showed me when I was strayed showed me a dead one then showed me a Spirit raised Showed me rippin' mics getting' hype with my crew showed me playin' hard showed me playin' cool Showed me representin' showed me sellin' out showed me what my life should really be about Showed me the cross, as he was nailed showed me the tomb, Him raisin' and prevailed Showed me His hands and side as they were scarred Showed me the universe with its billions of stars He said, "Listen and understand all power is in my hands I chose You to represent the man; Me! I am Who I am and I am who I Be the original Almigh-TY Look at yourself on the operatin' table I allowed you to get bust so that you would be able to see you've got to rely on me I am He, who inside dwells sovereignty Look, they're covering you up now your mother's cryin' and wonderin' how and when she'll see you again she's gotta mad faith and won't believe this is your end I'm glad I'm dead nobody loved me but my mother Look again my brother the waiting room's full of brothers and sisters you've touched they may not show it all the time but they love you very much So what now, Lord? I don't want to leave you "But you have to I need you, to lead the seed who have lost the way I'll see you on Glory day but until then keep buildin' and pray and when the devil comes to test you I'll be there to bless you, no fear youngin' I'm comin' to the rescue Take my Word, believe me, you have worth and in the twinkle of an eye I was back on Earth Pulled the sheet off my head as I began to wonder was it all a dream, or did I really go under?
