       ŇWHAT THEY NEEDÓ

                                                                                                                                  

 

 

 

VERSE 1

 

 

YOU EVER NOTICE, SOME CHRISTIANS WONŐT ADMIT IT

 

AFTER ACCEPTING CHRIST THEY NEVER FULLY COMMITTED

 

LIKE THEY CANŐT DECIDE TO LET GO OF THEIR PAST

 

THAT OLD METALITY THEY NEVER THREW IN THE TRASH

 

WHAT THEY USED TO ENJOY, THEY DONŐT WANT TO LOSE IT

 

SAME MOVIES, SAME VIDEOS, SAME MUSIC

 

THEY WANT TO STAY IN THE WORLD AND NOT SEPARATE

 

AT THE SAME TIME ASKING GOD TO HELP THEM ELEVATE

 

DONŐT UNDERSTAND WHY THEY JUST CANŐT BE THE SAME

 

ACCEPTING CHRIST TO THEM IS NOT A LIFESTYLE CHANGE

 

SO THEY LISTEN TO THINGS TO HELP THEM REMINISCE

 

PERVERTED SONGS IN THEIR PAST, THEY START RE-LIVING THIS

 

SOON THEY START TAKING JOURNEYS WHERE THEY WERE

 

WHEN THAT SONG WAS PLAYED WAY BACK AND WHAT OCCURRED

 

SO THOSE THINGS IN YOUR PAST, CLOSE THE DOOR

 

BECAUSE YOUR OLD AND NEW NATURE IS NOW AT WAR

 

 

CHORUS 1

 

 

WHAT THEY WANT IS TO HEAR FAMILIAR BEATS SO THEY CAN REMINISCE ON THEIR LIFE IN THE STREETS

 

BUT WHAT THEY NEED IS A CHOSEN POETIC PREACHER TO TELL THEM ONCE YOUŐRE IN CHRIST YOU BECOME A NEW CREATURE

 

WHAT THEY WANT THOUGH IS LESS OF MINISTRY WITHOUT THE CONVICTION LIKE THE SECULAR INDUSTRY

 

BUT WHAT THEY NEED IS POWER IN EVERY LYRIC SO WHEN THEY HEAR IT THEY FEEL THE PRESENCE OF GODŐS SPIRIT

 

 

VERSE 2

 

 

GOD LOVES WHEN YOU SING PRAISES TO HIM

 

BUT SOME ARTISTS YOU NEVER KNOW THEY EVER KNEW HIM

 

THE FACT THEY WONŐT SAY HIS NAME MAKES YOU DOUBT

 

WHEN THEYŐRE SINGING THEIR SONGS WHO THEYŐRE TALKING ABOUT

 

OUT GOES HIS NAME AND IN GOES THEIR AIM

 

OF LYRICAL STRATEGIES TO TRY TO BOOST THEIR FAME

 

THEY BELIEVE NOT MENTIONING GODŐS THE WAY TO GO

 

TO GET MORE SALES AND GET PLAYED ON THE RADIO

 

IN THE BEGINNING THEY TOOK A VOW TO MINISTER

 

THEIR DESIRE FOR MONEY GOT THEM ACTING MORE SINISTER

 

THEY STRADDLE THE FENCE TO MAKE MORE DOLLARS AND CENTS

 

THEY IMITATE THE WORLD SO FANS WONŐT TAKE OFFENSE

 

THEY SOON FORGET THAT GOD HAS THE UPPER HAND, NOT MAN

 

HE CONTROLS THE WEALTH OF THE LAND

 

JUST SINGING FOR FAME AND NOT EVEN THINKING OF YOU

 

UNTIL THE ENDÉOH BY THE WAY JESUS LOVES YOU

 

 

CHORUS 2

 

 

WHAT THEY WANT IS TO GET FORTUNE AND FAME AND RADIO PLAY BY TAKING OUT JESUSŐ NAME

 

BUT WHAT THEY NEED IS TO LEARN NOT BE OFFENDED BY SAYING HIS NAME FOR THEREŐS POWER AND HEALING IN IT

 

WHAT THEY WANT THOUGH IS MORE FANS GALORE BY NOT REALLY CONFESSING WHO THEYŐRE SINGING FOR

 

BUT WHAT THEY NEED IS TO SAY FOR WHOM THEY SING, FOR THEY THAT STAND FOR NOTHING WILL FALL FOR ANYTHING

CŐMON MAN, THATŐS WHAT THEY WANTÉBUT THIS IS WHAT THEY NEED

MAN THATŐS WHAT THEY WANT THOUGHÉ.BUT THIS IS WHAT THEY NEED

 

CŐMON MAN, THATŐS WHAT THEY WANTÉBUT THIS IS WHAT THEY NEED

VERSE 3

 

 

I UNDERSTAND THE PRESSURE THAT YOUŐRE UNDER

 

TO BE ACCEPTED BY ALL YOUR PEERS IS WHAT YOU HUNGER

 

AND TO NOT BE CONSIDERED AN OUTCAST

 

TRUST ME THOUGH YOUR FEELINGS FOR CHRIST WILL OUT LAST

 

ANY PERSON THAT YOU LABEL AS YOUR FRIEND

 

FOR CHRIST STICKS CLOSER THAN A BROTHER ÔTIL THE END

 

MEN COME AND GO, HOWEVER ONCE YOU KNOW

 

THE PRESENCE OF JESUS, HE WILL TOUCH YOUR SOUL

 

YOU DONŐT HAVE TO BE ASHAMED OR LOSE FAME

 

SO WE MAY LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST IS WHY HE CAME

 

YOU GOTTA THINK ABOUT YOUR LIFE IN THE LONG TERM

 

TO BE A FOLLOWER OF MAN IS THE WRONG TURN

 

HEŐLL GIVE YOU SOME NEW FRIENDS, START SOME NEW TRENDS

 

HEŐLL HEAL YOUR PAIN AND TIE UP THE LOOSE ENDS

 

AND WHEN YOU ACCEPT HIM, YOUŐLL BE ON ONE ACCORD.

 

BUT DONŐT LET YOU FRIENDS TALK YOU OUT OF YOUR REWARD

 

 

CHORUS 3

 

 

WHAT THEY WANT IS JUST TO BE ACCEPTED, THEY THINK CHRISTIAN LIFE IS TOO MUCH TO BE EXPECTED

 

BUT WHAT THEY NEED IS TO KNOW THAT WITH CHRIST YOUR DAYS WILL BE BETTER CAUSE HE GIVES ABUNDANT LIFE

 

WHAT THEY WANT IS TO KEEP ASKING WHY NOT HAVE FUN NOW THEN REPENT BEFORE WE DIE

 

BUT WHAT THEY NEED IS SALVATION WHILE THEYŐRE LIVING, FOR THE PLACE AND THE TIME YOU WILL DIE IS NOT A GIVEN
