Lecrae - Violence Lyrics

War, crime, violence should stop!

[Verse 1:]
4-fever, 9 millimeter
‘Dem a’ want a heater ‘cuz the streets is finna heat up
Six million ways to die; choose 10
And if he don't die then he probably do ‘em again
From passionate catastrophe, to genocidal blasphemy
No respect for humanity, they resort to insanity
Head bang on the glass, call it window pain
Jumping out the window tryna’ get my frame through the frame
Close range; when he point, I just blank-out
Felt my heart sank when that bang thang rang out
Now you got yo thang out, you take life, you give it
You took his life away, but you gave yours up to system
No wanna listen, no reason for livin’
We bought the lie we can't be forgiven for all our sinnin’
Killin’ is the religion, service is in a prison
Ignorance got a slave and our name in the mentions

War, crime, violence should stop!

Bad man, bad man, gun man, bad man
Squeeze bullet, pow-pow. Body bag man.
No bother with no war. No bother with no violence.
No bother with the six-feet-rest-in-peace silence

[Verse 2:]
Grew up under Tupac: bible verse and two glocks
Say we ready to die, see a ghetto in the sky
Couldn't be more wrong than right shoes on the left feet
Highway to hell and we fighting for the best seat
No heart, bullet’s got no name
Little boys wanna bang but ‘dem barely got a brain
‘Dem barely got aim, but they shooting for nothin’
They rob a sister of her brother for a couple a hund’ed
They thinkin’ that life is cheap but it's expensive as ever
They'll be sentenced to forever for them heartless endeavors
I try to tell ‘em (simmer down brethren), but they like whateva’
Too scared of being broke to think about being betta’
Plus, we get bombarded by all these images of bravado
You ain't really a man if you don't follow these models
But the weakest ones follow, the strong reconsider
You can forgive much if you understand you forgiven

  39. Lul Dee

    bass is so hard x)

  40. Damien Dillard

    This bass is sick

  41. CornisNice

    "The earth is the Lord's, and everything in it." (1st Corinthians 10:26). Lecrae has actually addressed this in a concert before (Rock and Worship Road Show; I was there): the world has distorted hip-hop, but hip-hop (and all music for that matter) belongs to the Lord. This music right here in this video belongs to the Lord, definitely not the world.

  42. its Rhymes

    This song and many other songs in Lecrae's new album Gravity are supposed to catch the attention of the people who listen to say "Dubstep" or "Rap." Maybe they will actually listen to the lyrics and be inspired.

  43. jpdavis82

    War, pain, violence should stop!

  44. WithChildLikeFaith

    Jay-Z along with all other secular rap artists are Luciferian by the way.

  45. WithChildLikeFaith

    Anyone notice how this sounds similar to Jay-Z's "On to the Next One"? This music is fit to be played in the dance club, which is NOT good. I don't believe in Holy Hip-Hop or Hip-Hop period. The sounds came from the world and should not be played in the church. This is the world's sounds, the world's music.

  46. Hiphop Purist

    This is terrible real talk..

  47. mario oliver

    @ glorifiedgraphic bruh you gotta web page bruh I need work done

  48. CDiddy404

    Lol, I actually thought twice about that comment right after I posted it, lol.

  49. The116unashamed

    Lecrae got talent, but he is not the truth! Jesus is the truth! ;)

  50. CDiddy404

    Lecrae is the truth.

  51. Mia Davis

    This beat is to SICKKKK.!!!!

  52. DLowe

    Also I been rockin wit Crae since songs like "Go Hard" & "Waste My Life" and Lecrae was the first Christian artist to draw my attention, but to see the evolution from then to now, God has done great things, and I can say its been so amazing to sit back and watch God change lives through this one man who decided to be completely unashamed of Jesus. #116

  53. DLowe

    First comment babyyy! Lol I love when Crae does the whole Jamaican accent rappin...it's dope!
