       “ANSWER THIS”

                                                                                                                                  

 

 

 

CHORUS

 

 

 

LOOKING THROUGH SCRIPTURE, I SEEMED TO NOTICE

 

MANY WERE TORMENTED FOR ALL THE RIGHT MOTIVES

 

THEY DID NOTHING EXCEPT SERVE GOD

 

YET IN STILL THEY HAD TO SUFFER, TO MANY THAT SEEMS ODD

 

BUT IT SEEMS NOW WE TAKE FOR GRANTITE THE FACT

 

SERVING GOD WITHOUT RISKING PHYSICAL ATTACK

 

BUT ASK YOURSELF LIKE THEM, COULD I TAKE THE RISK

 

IF YOU SAID THAT YOU COULD, THEN YOU MUST ANSWER THIS

 

 

 

 

VERSE 1

 

 

 

WHAT YOU KNOW ABOUT BEING ARRESTED

 

EVERYTHING YOU SAY ABOUT GOD PEOPLE CONTEST IT

 

WHAT YOU KNOW ABOUT BEING FED TO LIONS

 

BUT THEY COULDN’T EAT YOU AS HARD AS THEY KEPT TRYING

 

WHAT YOU KNOW ABOUT GIVING OFFERINGS WITH LOVE

 

BUT FROM ENVY KILLED BY YOUR OWN FLESH AND BLOOD

 

WHAT YOU KNOW ABOUT BEING PERSECUTED

 

PREACHING CHRIST IS THE ANSWER, BUT EVERYTIME IT’S DISPUTED

 

WHAT YOU KNOW ABOUT BEING PUT IN A PRISON

 

WHERE PRAISING AND PREACHING TO SINNERS WAS PART OF THE MISSION

 

WHAT YOU KNOW ABOUT SUFFERING SPIRITUAL

 

RIDICULE AND BEAT FOR PERFORMING MIRACLES

 

WHAT YOU KNOW ABOUT BEING THROWN IN A FURNACE

 

SAYING BECAUSE WE WORSHIP OUR GOD YOU WANNA BURN US

 

A HEDGE OF FIRE AROUND YOUR EVERY INCH

 

YET IN STILL, YOU WERE NOT CONSUMED OR HAD A STINCH

 

 

 

 

 

 

CHORUS

 

 

 

 

 

VERSE 2

 

 

 

WHAT YOU KNOW ABOUT BEING STONED AND KILLED

 

BY SINNERS THAT HATE YOU BECAUSE YOU’RE SPIRIT FILLED

 

WHAT YOU KNOW ABOUT BEING VICTIMIZED

 

AND ARRESTED AND KILLED JUST BECAUSE YOU’RE CIRCUMCISED

 

WHAT YOU KNOW ABOUT BEING BEHEADED

 

FOR WHAT YOU SAID ABOUT GOD, WOULD YOU STILL SAY YEAH, I SAID IT

 

WHAT YOU KNOW ABOUT HAVING YOUR BABY SLAIN

 

BY SOMEONE WHO SUPPRESSING YOUR NATION WAS HIS AIM

 

WHAT YOU KNOW ABOUT SOMEONE’S WRATH AND ANGER

 

WANTS TO KILL YOU CAUSE GOD SHOWS YOU FAVOR

 

WHAT YOU KNOW ABOUT HAVING ALL YOUR FRIENDS

 

SCORN YOU BECAUSE YOU’D RATHER TRUST GOD UNTIL THE END

 

WHAT YOU KNOW ABOUT BEING SENT AWAY

 

TO ANOTHER ISLAND, IMPRISONED FOR THE REST OF YOUR DAYS

 

BUT THROUGHT IT ALL, YOU STILL KEPT YOUR SALVATION

 

AND RELATION WITH GOD AS HE GAVE YOU A REVELATION

 

 

 

 

CHORUS

 

 

 

 

 

VERSE 3

 

 

 

WHAT YOU KNOW ABOUT PREACHING ABOUT CHRIST

 

IN A FOREIGN LAND TO YOU, CONSTANTLY RISKING YOUR LIFE

 

WHAT YOU KNOW ABOUT CONSTANT PAIN AND

 

STONED AND LEFT FOR DEAD FOR HEALING A LAME MAN

 

WHAT YOU KNOW ABOUT GETTING BEAT AND WHIPPED

 

UNRECOGNIZABLE FROM ALL THE TIMES YOU’RE HIT

 

WHAT YOU KNOW ABOUT TORTURE FROM A NAIL

 

HAMMERED THROUGH YOUR HANDS AND YOUR FEET, BUT NEVER YELL

 

WHAT YOU KNOW ABOUT THORNS IN YOUR FLESH

 

PIERCED IN YOUR SIDE WHILE OTHERS ENJOY YOUR DEATH

 

WHAT YOU KNOW ABOUT BLEEDING TO DIE SLOW

 

LAYING YOUR LIFE DOWN FOR PEOPLE YOU DON’T KNOW

 

WHAT YOU KNOW ABOUT KNOWING YOU’RE GONNA DIE

 

BUT ENDURING IT, WITHOUT CONSTANTLY ASKING WHY

 

OR QUESTIONING WHY TO YOU THESE THINGS WERE DEALT

 

WITH THE POWER TO STOP IT, NEVER CALLED ANGELS FOR HELP

 

 

 

 

 

CHORUS
