Facts Lyrics

Facts - Lecrae

Written by:Dwayne Allen Abernathy II/Lecrae Moore

 

I will only tell the truth

 

I will only tell the truth

 

Incoming

 

Truth truth truth truth

 

Truth truth truth truth truth

People wonderin' is he woke or just a new slave

Old religion he just covered it with new chains

Choppin' out the church he ain't real he fake

He divisive he don't rep the king he just want the fame

Aw man now they actin' like I'm suddenly political

Told me shut my mouth and get my checks from evangelicals

Where my momma raised me on Angela and Eldridge

Chuck berry made it but the credit went to elvis

 

Know you never knew that know you think I'm too black

I just think I'm too real I grew up on 2 pac

You grew up thinkin' that the panthers was some terrorists

I grew up hearin' how they fed my momma eggs and grits

'Crae they say you should follow in the steps of king

I say you've forgotten how they shot him in the streets

I ain't really changed it's the same old rebel

Still a radical I'm passionate it's just another level leggo

 

At told me I should fight back

They don't like that they don't

Just know if you rock the boat you better have a life raft what

Bj told me I should fight back

They don't like that

Just know if you rock the boat you better have a life raft woo

I will only tell the truth facts

 

People cannot abide by a truth they prefer fantasy over reality facts

 

I will only tell the truth

 

I am for truth no matter who tells it

 

I will only tell the truth

I am for justice no matter who it is for or against facts

 

Rose up out the dungeon

I was feelin' haunted

Now I'm bein' hunted

And I'm on a hunnid

Hit the gas gunning

Skip the past running

 

Tell 'em they could bring that

If they really want it

I I'm on the hometeam

You just running with the wrong team

Never take 'em with the heavyweights or boy you'll die and need a little protein

Southside on the yellowstone had a ham bone and a white tee

And a 12 pack of that real talk and I'm drunk tell 'em

Come find me

Draped up dripped out covered in the blood

Man I hang where they cripped out sippin' on the mud

Where they swingin' got the whips out watch 'em pop trunk

Yeah I know it's hella dark but I'm tryna light it up

Now these people swear they on me sendin' out threats

Told me keep my mouth shut told me be a stepin fetchit

I will not oblige to your colonized way of faith

My messiah died for the world not just USA

They say Jesus was conservative

Tell 'em that's a lie

No he not a liberal either if you think I'll choose a side

They say 'crae you so divisive shouldn't be a black church

I say do the math segregation started that first

 

Hey you want unity then read a eulogy

Kill the power that exists up under you and over me

I said you want unity then read a eulogy

 

Kill the power that exists up under you and over me woo facts

 

So reconciliation or conciliation requires defrauded parties to be made whole

 

Not just apologizing for the offense

 

I was waitin' for the right time to tell y'all how I feel

And yeah I know that it hurts but look it's gon' heal

I waited 'til I was on prime time before I let y'all know

And you prolly won't wanna hear my music no mo'

But it's all good man I love y'all

 

Hope you know that I'm black black

Traded my smart car for a Cadillac can you handle that

And I love god

I love Jesus the one out of Nazareth

Not the European with the ultra perm and them soft eyes and them thin lips

 

And I'm still hood

Been in the 'burbs for quite some time

But I still might hit the gas station for the lemonheads and the pork rinds

And I'm on one

Yeah 116 been real

Binghamton tennessee from third ward to ceiling hill

And I live a multiple world call me a hybrid 'cause I'm so black

Young theologian who educated but still be at that chicken shack yeah

 

 

Lemme get a two piece
