Grits — Man's Soul lyrics

The more I meditate, I hesitate to even show face
The more I hesitate, I contemplate my life is a waste
My spirit levitates to take a glance at truth of it's grace
As my flesh emulates every act of disgrace
So deceptive in perception of it's hunger and greed
Maliciously relentless to fulfill whatever it needs
Undisciplined, rebellious, no regard for righteousness
Ever since it tasted death, he desires nothing less
Too many nights I spent in tears, drowning in fear
I'm never making it, through all the time I spend faking it
My soul is proving capability and prone that when alone
Without the fathers consecration flesh manipulates
Constantly, continual battles might end up being goes through
Why do I do the things I know I'm not supposed to
Why don't I do the things that I know I should do
Who s to blame except me and me alone
I found my enemies home
[Chorus:]
What could it inhibit a habit
The dark corners lurking
Demonic principalities when other evils working
You can't escape fate, allow what's in your heart to tailgate
Youre your only cellmate to unlock what locked the jail gate
(2X)
Somewhere inside the crevice, I long to face the limits
The premise is death for execution of flesh
Past no authority and so control the tree of life
I chose, taking shape of it's mold
Indulge in fruit too, whatever you do, I do, we crew
Give it unto a city, evil, not for me, you you
Doom can't loom if I no longer give it room zoom a zoom
Youre free to explode for miles with a loud boom
Perfect tightly I hold with no attention
To foe toe to toe and low to low, flow to flow I stand firm
Learn to discern, circumstances are changed
Do a dance with death, til my souls last breath
When I'm at my hardest
Can salvage my ima
