[Talking:] We gon fight [x2]
I'm fighting temptations [x2]
I'm fighting fighting [x2]
Ahh, I'm trying to live a godly life
Be lying if I said it ain't hard
I can't even open my eyes
Cause everything is Rated R
Can't believe what I'm seeing, I'm speechless
All I see is your booty and cleavage
You just tryin' to find my weakness
I'm determined to pass your test
Ahh, Tryin to be spirit-led
I ain't gon let you in my head
And like a spider you are weaving your web
Tryin to get a brotha in your bed
You don't like it, that I'm standing tall
Though the reason why faith didn't fall
So put away your seducing lips
I know the devil's all in your kiss
Ahh, under pressure to make this money
This recession makin things so hard
I don't wanna do nothing illegal
Then I gotta put my trust in God
Lord, I'm reaching out for help
I can't win the war by myself
Lord, I need a little more patience
And more strength so I can fight temptations
Everytime I turn around, I can see you trying to take me down, trying to keep me bound.
The annointing on my life just won't allowyou to trap me, zap me, stop me, block me.
God's got me in his hands, somebody gotaa stand, I'll be the man.
I refuse to run, yep, I'm the one, that's gonna get the job done, God's son.
Like David, I'm gonna slay the giant, you know God's with me, you can't deny it.
Tryin yo best to keep me quiet, what you sellin I refuse to buy it.
You might as well find someone else to lie with.
Every disease, you probably got it, keep it to yourself, because I don't want it.
No, I don't want it.
