Beautiful Eulogy - Misconception lyrics

[Intro] Misconception (x3) I'll leave your brain stimulated [Verse 1: Propaganda] Slang came from a land were they suffer from the effects of depravity Like gang banging and earthquakes Most famous no-namers split a brain and plant a taste for the King of Kings I know it's a strange concept Peddling redemption boy what more can I say Make me and Lecrae been trying to make Him famous since nine tre Filling these 58′s with phrases that would deem us Unfit to succeed among these heathens It's so crucial in the belly of the crucible That you would understand that stage like your morning candle It's handing out cancer That's why fame was never the aim And the back is the front Homie left side up That's a concept [Hook] Misconception Those deadly habits have me losing my cool... It's what your frame of mind has chosen I'll leave your brain stimulated... [Verse 2: Braille] So many misconceptions Missing the mark, misdirected Driving reckless and aggressive Fueled by our false perceptions Our methods need corrections Spitting venom in their face And violate the ones we should protect as an attempt to motivate Neglect our obligations place the blame on someone else Point out the flaws in other people and take the focus off ourselves Those who have been abused view leadership as illegitimate So they don't think it's necessary to play by the rules or submit They see authority as nothing more than a power trip And they don't want to be plugged in to it They'd rather see that power stripped, get it? Power strip It's unfortunate Disproportionate The door is wide open for false teachers to twist the truth and distort it No examples left to follow left to our demise Acting foolish but can't see it so we're wise in our own eyes The life and crucifixion of Christ is a beautiful depiction Of service and submission within a leadership position [Hook] [Verse 3: Odd Thomas] You probably have it all figured out, right? Like you're the type that believes that if you act right Then that just might make you righteous in God's sight You've been a really good person You followed the good book as much as you could You probably didn't go to church as much as you should But it's all good I mean you never really k**ed anybody Never really steal from anybody You never lusted much, or did much, touching of any bodies You never use the Lord's name in vain, and you respect you neighbor You try to maintain peace, love your enemies and not hold on to anger You really believe that you could receive God's favor by your good deeds and right behavior But you're dead in your transgressions and need a savior Cause you could never win God's approval - Of the removal of sinful discretions, your righteous acts in removing God's wrath is in fact the biggest misconception [Hook] [Verse 4: Lecrae] Since my conception I've been riddled with deception Televised lies devised to lead a blind insurrection Against the resurrection And the greatest misconception The world believes the Christian is foolish without direction And they knock it to knock it But what does it profit a prophet to be socially ostracized And no we ain't stopping the mocking But if there is anything I can do to raise the stock in the market For a Biblical worldview then there's no longer an option Here with the humble beast, ain't no subtleties, ain't no tongue-in-cheek, this is what I mean They don't understand anything about the faith I believe, and they want to belittle me But it's cool though, They just want the pseudo The fake faith The false one The western God that's man made and not the Biblical Awesome Toss 'em, pick up the Reasons for God by Timothy Keller and read it There is a God you should believe in and his name is Jesus [Hook]
