[intro]
i wish i could remember
somewhere along the line i must’ve forgot it
or never knew
i wish it could just go back to the way it used to be
when i first picked up a pen and pad
first picked up the mic
when i first stepped on a stage and moved a crowd
it was pure back then, remember?

[verse 1: jurny big]
i bench press the stress and come out stronger from the test
stay abreast to the truth and take it to your chest
weighing forward we regress then gang clowning took it back
more or less i been second-guessed since the first time i first rhymed a verse
and i’m blessed by the curse cause rain came
and i’ll take the blame for legitimizin’ the gospel rap game
and continue to do the same in christ’s name
perceive it as vain if you want to but that don’t change a dang thing
i ain’t fightin’ a good fight, i’m in the war for your life
and god said it, no peace treaties, he made his promise
for that he’d go before us and make us the bombest
not just me and my crew but all who call themselves the chosen few
he made covenant with me and you and what you do?
so loud cause you can’t control your emotion
what’s the devotion you had when you first picked up the fight?
you had it right back then, it wasn’t about self-promotion
it’s ’bout living the gospel and not talkin’ on a mic
it was love at any cost, somewhere you got it lost
started believin’ you can understand the word through reason
instead of revelation, together we stand, divided we fall
no matter the difference in gift, it’s all the same call
judge-a-mental my method is the reason for your downfall
can’t see what they see, you won’t agree but it’s the same call
not your vision, not my vision but the vision
just doin’ what we do according to gifts given
stop trippin’, unity is not uniform
different tools for different jobs, different crews for different jobs
stop lookin’ for the godly man, look for the god in man
focus on the common thread, not job description
game recognize game when there will be unity
if you get out the flesh and look through eyes of eternity
remember when you believed till the church taught something else?
remember when you believed cause you believed for yourself?
remember when god was your example of righteousness?
remember when your faith was childlike, not childish?

[hook: ?]
oh remember, remember
remember, remember

[verse 2: dax]
for years i sat and watched and often had the urge to speak
on all these mediocre gospel rappers skittin’ off the beat
perpetratin’ ’bout how they tight and how open mics get freak
knowing full well you weak and couldn’t reach me at your peak
and what’s worse is your excuse: christian emcees shouldn’t burn
but the fact is you ain’t got no talent so you p-ss when it’s your turn
sayin’ it’s not the will of god and trz be off the mark
but you k!ll the art and christian kids are still in dark about it
taking every word you say and story told as precious gold
cuz god ain’t in your songs, that’s the reason you ain’t sold a lot?
i got news for y’all crew, you can’t pay your dues in credit
’cause you grew up in a church don’t qualify you for the mic session
i said it and i can’t not if you don’t understand my callin’
i still keep walkin’ like i’m balling as you all be trip and fallin’
thinkin’ you tight cause you work with evangelists worldwide
’cause when they ask you to sound like snoop, you just could not deny
it’s like this, god has made me exactly who i am
and i’d be d-mned if i had k!lled it to fulfill the will of man
see it’s hard to understand and so you question my success
’cause i drive a bucket to the show and go to mama’s house to rest
i probably never had what you got but that’s not why i’ve endured
but so cats like you won’t have to sleep on the floor when they on tour
and i know my place and i’ll be in it ’til i’m done
but the last shall be first and i been last since day one
remember that

[hook]
remember, remember
remember, remember
