Do Better - Lyrics

I've written lots of songs you will never hear
Things about my past, about my anger and my fear
You see, my problem is I never let go
Thinking too much till my mind overloads
Acting out in the flesh, living like all the rest
So ashamed of myself, dealing with pain in my chest
Isolate myself, guess what? I'm depressed!
I put my fake face on but behind it I'm a mess
People saying, "oh, it'll get better"
No it won't, this is life, but I can't just let it
Pull me down every time that it pushes me around
And if I do hit the dirt, I can't stay on the ground
'Cause Christ lived a life that was devoid of sin
He faced what I face but He never gave in
And yet He still suffered death in the end
But He rose again, ya hear me? He rose again!
And He didn't go through it so I could throw in the towel
Say, "well, oh well, this sucks, I'm giving up now"
I gotta get out of my head, focus off myself
No more leaving God to just sit on the shelf

I've been living how I want to
Acting like a fool, and doing what I wanna do
But it's ‘bout time that I got it together
Forget about the past, it's time to do better

Look, I've been living how I want to
Acting like a fool, and doing what I wanna do
But it's ‘bout time that I got it together
Forget about the past, it's time to do better

I'm trying harder than I have before
I'm sick of being stuck and never moving forward
No more doing what I want behind closed doors
Time to open ‘em up and give Satan what for
By speaking the truth and walking in the light
Plugging my ears against the enemy's lies
Eyes in the back of my head like Mom, I won't be surprised (ayy)
And yo, I've made it this far, I'm gon' keep up the fight, look
Mainstream rappers got this missing
My drive, my M.O., my vision
Child of God on mission
Glorify Him with how I'm living
In the face of temptation, do not give in
Am I gonna screw up? That's a given
Make mistakes, but don't stay there, though
Say His name without laying low
And I make His name throughout the nation known
A lot of people gon' hate me, though (yup)
That's okay, I don't need your approval
Only what my God thinks about me is crucial
Tryna bend me, better accept my refusal
I got a different perception, I won't be getting bamboozled
I'm all out in the world but I will not conform (never)
Chasing all the faux pearls, not when I been reborn
Listen to these words now, hear what I say
'Cause how I been living my life is about to change

I've been living how I want to
Acting like a fool, and doing what I wanna do
But it's ‘bout time that I got it together
Forget about the past, it's time to do better

Look, I've been living how I want to
Acting like a fool, and doing what I wanna do
But it's ‘bout time that I got it together
Forget about the past, it's time to do better

Look, I've been living how I want to
Acting like a fool, and doing what I wanna do
But it's ‘bout time that I got it together
Forget about the past, it's time to do better
