Lee, Trip - The Invasion (Hero) Lyrics

[Verse 1:]
Creation's groaning, lost their hope and feel they always closed in Lots to cope with, on the ropes, wish they was in the open This broken world is so dim, our souls are searching, groping For one with hope to hold us close, and set goodness in motion I remember growing up in Dallas, I thought me and my close kin Was more than straight, our folks was great, not broke that paper flowed in Not boasting man, just saying in my brain I didn't know then That all went wrong, and it just can't go right like a broke pen My mind was blind and cloaked in, but then that foolishness departed I saw this thing's an ocean, and we just tryna swim real far but But can't nobody float when we ain't got boats or no fins We need a hero to go in, cause our solutions don't win Education can't fix it, more dough just leads to more sin Medicine is temporary, government seems so thin With all these weighty problems, that ain't shrinking they just growing Who's adequate to save us, how about He knew no sin?

Like a G5 yeah you rushed to rescue me
Took a cross in exchange for a crown to save me
You began the work and I know you'll finish
And make all things right when you come back
Cause you're my hero, you already saved the day
Cause you're my hero, and I know you're coming back for me

[Verse 2:]
Follow the steps bro, Adam sinned now we all dead so We gotta sentence on our head like death row, everything is wrecked All creation is a mess bro, In the fullness of time, in steps the hero no red cloak, He's Jesus No flashing lights, glitz n glam, and no cameras He came to serve needy folks, and point them to the answer You see Him healing, feeding folks, and telling them the standard Our most basic need is to be ransomed by Jesus It has first place, yeah we separated in the worst ways Even physically peep how the earth quakes Separated socially, murder and the worst rapes Even separated from ourselves, we in the worst state It's so major, that's the reason that we need a Savior Cause the root of needs is separation from Creator Jesus came humbly to restore us to our maker And later He'll restore all that He made bruh, He's Jesus


[Verse 3:]
God is not pleased man, it's clear that His standards missed The world is running rampant with, sin it's an abandonment Man is feeling stranded, feeling hopeless since his banishment God is angry at the distortion and the mismanagement Evil is at work, but don't be thinking He can't handle it He promised He would do away with all of it, dismantle it He's put up with this damage in His world, but He's promised us That He'll destroy all His enemies and then He'll walk with us New Heaven, new Earth that's where all His sheep dwell Cause Jesus succeeded in every part of life that we failed Died the death we couldn't die, paid our price with 3 nails Began the work He promised, in the end we all will be well Already beat his enemies and when His Kingdom's realized All those who oppose Him will see Jesus with some real eyes Deliverance is offered us, the hero He is urging us Salvation is exclusive to His people who have turned to trust

I give my gratitude (Jesus).
You died to make all things new.
My knight in armour when our world is fallen.
Your love's never failing.
I find safety in your arms

    For everyone mentioning 666 as the mark of the beast, In the word it says the numbers of the beast will add up to 666. 666 on the numerical scale is the numerical value of the name of the coming antichrist. Read Revelation 13:15-18. We should be more concerned with the word of God than the mark. Know your scripture and be ready because we will be fighting a righteous war!!

  32. Jonathan Goyens

    They're skepticold like Braille because everything man made will let you down. So they assume YESHUA will too we're all sinners theyre finding the truth so stay out of YHWHS way. I cast my own stone im not perfect but YESHUA is. Awake now leave the matrix with us. It's not easy but its reality your choice.

  33. essennagerry

    Do yall even read the bible? How about GOD'S SEAL? That is for GOD'S PEOPLE?

    I sincerely wonder why this was the *first* thing I thought of, yet the *first* thing some think of is the mark of the beast.

    If you say Trip Lee is a false prophet - tell me - what is he prophecying? False teacher? What is he teaching? Have you done your research? Read his lyric?

    Be slow people. Be slow to talk. Slow to anger. Be fast to listen. Fast to think. Fast to pray. Fast to read.

  34. Priesthood Styles

    Rise so called African Americans we are the Biblical Hebrew Israelites... come back to the Father keep the laws and commandments.

    @ 1:04 "You lucky I'm married to your grandmother or I wouldn't be doing this right now." He looks too young to be anybody's granddad. lol

  37. Justin Carter

    I didn't understand until now, but that mark was one that believers showed to eachother, because they were being persecuted.

  38. Matheus Sousa

    come to Brazil lee

  39. Kristy Parsons

    I miss this from Tripp..I like his lyrics better here

  40. Caleb

    Wait; so, Sho Baraka is married to Trip Lee's grandmother?!? That's new--as of 2010, anyway.

  41. Karla Alvarado

    Trip Lee is my fav singer of all time



  43. iShine 4Him

    The one (and ONLY) thing I don't like about this is that they did tattoos. I get that it united everyone, but they could have done it differently. Oh, well. This is still an AWESOME SONGGGG!

    Courtney Blackroze

    Gian Beats similar sound

  54. Donna Henderson

    For the people saying it's the mark of the beast I thing it's more a a metaphoric type thing. The QR Code is actually like when people find out your a Christian, they try to find out everything about you persecute you. When they see the "mark" they know your a Christian I think the "mark" is when you talk about Jesus, quote scripture and stuff. I'm not foolish enough to let the government do anything to me or whatever, and if I ever see anything in any one of 116 videos that tips me off I'll stop listening but until then. LOVING THE MUSIC GUYS

    To back this up with scripture Revelations 7: 1-8

    1 And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.

    2 And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,

    3 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.

    4 And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.

    5 Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand.

    6 Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nephthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand.

    7 Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand.

    8 Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.

    I hope you got my comment. About the Foolish remark about "luck" any real believer knows "luck" would be glory to a finite God. Only shows his Ass really. :)


    I'm pretty for sure his character was not portraying a believer.

    yup I sure do

  66. John Treece

    I think people have a misconception of who satan really is. Satan is simply a hebrew word that means the enemy or the adversary. Oftentimes, people think he's a little red creature with horns and that's just not the case. That's just another one of their lies to get you to believe that they don't exist. No, my friends, the satans have technology, as the Holy Bible testifies......... And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: and that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.- Revelation 13:16-18
    Isn't the Bible amazing, that a book written in the first century could foresee technology 1900 years later? I'll give you a hint friends........our enemies are otherworldly............


    Let me ask you this:

    If I wear a tattoo of a Bible verse that is meaningful to me, according to this logic, I'll go to hell.

    So my solution to this is: get ready...

    Wear a shirt that has tons of swearing words on it! And maybe some pornographic images, also. Now I'm good, because it's not a tat.

    An action or an object becomes sinful if glorifies Satan. If it doesn't, then it's not a sin.


    Interesting fact: in Genesis, God put a "mark" on Cain. It's believed that that mark was a tattoo. So apparently, according to you, god did a sinful thing.

    John Treece

    God can do with His creation as He pleases.......we still have to do what He says......placing the number 666 on your body will send a person to the fire forever. He spoke it in the book of Revelation, it is so........


    +John Treece well that's kind of obvious. But most tattoos aren't "666".

    Javanna Cumberbatch

    oooo! U sound so wise, n this is so insightful!

  67. John Treece

    Friends, did you notice how the qr code on the wall at :12  ends up on the hands, arms, and necks of the so-called believers in the video? As if taking the mark is the Christian thing to do? Friends, DO NOT EVER let them put any kind of mark on you, or technology inside your body. This sin is unforgivable and you will spend eternity in hell.............
    And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive HIS MARK in his forehead, or in his hand, the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: and the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.- Revelation 14:9-11


    The mark is a symbol that symbolizes being a Christian. It's telling all the other Christians "I am a Christian".
    It's their "underground" way of notifying each other that they're Christians, also.
    It's not a sin to tell others that we're Christians.

    Jp David

    King, are you dumb? If the government/CIA can put a mark on you and pull up information on you from a marking, that means that the gov/beast gave you the mark. Trip Lee is mixing lies with truth. NO WAY WOULD SUCH A MARK LIKE THAT BE FROM GOD!!!! THAT'S THE MARK OF THE BEAST!!!!

    KiD Swanky

    +Jp David it's a music video. Your so caught up in this "mark" that you don't even catch the concept of this video. Watch the entire video. Listen to the song. And if that's the "mark of the beast" plz explain why that mark was never on anyone's forehead or hand. Another thing if that's the mark and this video is 5 years old, how come I've never heard of that particular mark? Stop reaching man. Thirdly, you know that the mark of the beast is going to introduced AFTER the rapture of the church, you do know that right? I mean I would assume you did seeing you quote scripture and all

    Every body that is not perfect and has tattoos have worked with the Devil/with Mark's of the Beast. But he who comes to GOD THROUGH CHRIST JESUS & repent's for the better of him for a new life will be forgiven for the NEW LIFE W/ GOD

  70. Stevo Bee

    This video dont make since. 4:29 He is throwing up symbols. It's 3 nails not 6

    KiD eLLi

    Lol he probably gestured it wrong

    Tom Smith

    U must be a joke...Dude threw of 3 fingers on both hands not a sign of 6 all together

  71. One Wish2019

    Pastor Trip Lee explains a lot on this song. Coming from the world to Christ was a great move for me and my wife. I'm just glad there's artists out there that people can look up to. keep reppin Christ boy

    anashea .D

    I love it. so true. God bless everyone. :-)

  72. Marcus Metters jr

    Great song


    LMBO! Sho Baraka is hilarious!!!

  74. Akhil Dupal

    OMG why do people think he did the sign of the beast it was the number 3

    Unnecessary Information

    Number 3 is is the imperfected number of man. Think of 3x777. You think of trinity and the number of rest/perfection/completion., "The true face of lawlessness" is the number of man. When the deceptive imitation and mocking of God 3x666. Man at his core is the embodiment of Satan.

    Daniel Loomis

    Unnecessary Information just stop lol

  75. Thomas Watters

    that tattoo isnt the mark of the beast because it not on the right hand or forehead. The ones with the tattoo are being hunted by the government and its a mark that shows you are part of the underground movement. Christianity will be an underground movement during the tribulation. The Tribulation saints are people saved after the lord takes his church. 

  76. Clint Rickert

    Ok so I have read and reread so many of these comments. I will answer all questions in a nice short answer. There are two marks mentioned in Revelation. He is a Christian rapper or a rapper who is Christian as he puts it. If you get out of the idea of there just being one mark you will see that he is talking about the end times and what is going on. 

    Thank you

  77. Adailton Lopes

    I want to ask please Trip Lee so if you can write the lyrics to this song for me In name of JESUS!

  78. Adailton Lopes

    I saw this video and read the comments also please can anyone write the lyrics of this song for me so I make an ANALYZE in the name of JESUS!

    Ify Nsoha

    Just look them up on rap Genius

  79. Rozwell Munchausen

    he was talking about whats to come, he himself isn't satanic but he's talking about the anti-christs reighn over earth (the invader) and Jesus destined return (the hero)

  80. Tochi Lazarus

    Come on people, let like this

  81. TheHumbleBee

    I don't quite understand what this song is trying to say so one of you hardcore Christians tell me please.

  82. missymillie

    I miss Sho Baraka...his style was always more candid and funny. sigh. 

  83. OtisMusicCTL


    Why is this "Christian" rapper promoting the Mark of the Beast?

    Minor Poets

    OtisMusicCTL I see where you're going but the "Mark of the beast" is Marked on the forehead this is more of a QR code if you know what i mean. So basically we are owned by God so almost like being branded you're worth something to him is what this song basically is about and he payed the price.

    Sean McClelland

    You calm down dude you don't know what you're talking about

    Sean McClelland

    OtisMusicCTL you're the one who's judging a book by it's cover dude that symbol is not even satanic at all

  84. Gail Lanham

    Did he just take the "Mark" at the end?


    @Gail Lanham @OtisMusicCTL  I can see why it comes across like that, but I think what they meant was: William got purchased by Christ, not the world. Everyone who had the QR Code was praising Jesus in the underground. The kid at the beginning had a guitar (implied: I'm on my way to go praise Jesus, with the rest of the outcasts; Uh oh, persecution — the chase). We are the invaders (not of this world). We're caught "between two worlds" (in the world but not of it). And Jesus knows us by name.

    • _2 Timothy __2:19__ (KJV)_

    19 _Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure,_ *having this seal,* *The Lord knoweth them that are his.* _And,_ _let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity._

    IMO, the actual mark of the beast is whatever Bill Gates is doing with the poor people in Kenya (trying to get the poor people into a system of digital banking: http://www.gatesfoundation.org/What-We-Do/Global-Development/Financial-Services-for-the-Poor). Get a bank account for every poor adult, so they can buy and sell, transfer money with ease. Whatever this "digital currency" is, I think will be the economic system of the beast. — and it involves cell phones / mobile phones. So, I can see why this video gives a "mark of the beast vibe". QR Codes are scanned by smartphones. I'm giving Reach Records the benefit of the doubt though: I think they used the concept out of ignorance.


    Because we wear our faith on our sleeve therfore we are always persecuted.

    Trevor Teefor

    he took it damn

  85. Carnage Productions

    People have contorted this with the end times..this mark is not on the right hand or forehead. Its on the right arm. It signifies that they are saved. Just watched a video that was bashing Trip for this. We need to unite as a whole if we wanna see this world changed..

  86. anthony Brown

    you can see satanic symbolism all over this video at 429 you see he trows up the triple 6 sign these so called gospel artist are no different other rappers and rnb singers out there in the world brain washing Christians to invite demons in without being aware

    Colin Kisby

    @anthony Brown He was talking about the three nails that went into Jesus; not the triple 6 sign

    anthony Brown

    That sign i mentioned in the video as more meaning than what you think all the rappers use it so does r n b signers as well as president and prime minister take a look and you will see. I did some research.


    @anthony Brown
    I noticed he threw up the number too...false prophets out here everywhere nowadays

    Brian Paszkiewicz

    Here we go again. Can we just stop with all these satanic symbol comments on every video? Please!!!!!!

    Jared Heck

    @Brian Paszkiewicz agree it's getting annoying. Obviously it's nothing satanic. It's not "false" or anything. Why would satanism be in the world's greatest Christian rap record label??

  87. Christian Salazar

    Isn't that tattoo the mark of the beast???


    yes it is

    Brian Meuser

    No, no it's not.

    Нема Повлачења Нема Предаје

    @Christian Salazar I think it is... As you can see, boy from the begining of the video has been identifed by authorities (authorities colaborate with Illuminati, secret societies etc...) ... they have promoted the mark of the beast here, not the Seal of God.


    @Christian Salazar I can see why people would say that, but I don't think that's what they meant for the purpose of this video. Every "invader" has a QR Code (Quick Scan Bar Code), ergo they've been bought by Christ. And you'll be persecuted by the world for converting (ergo, the chase). The kid had a guitar, he was about to go praise with the rest of the underground movement. We're invaders (not of this world). Whatever the mark of the beast is, in reality, however, I'm not sure. We won't be able to buy or sell without it and even poor people will be forced to take it. There are suggestions from microchip being implanted in your skin to cellphone usage (Bill Gates wanting all poor adults in poor countries to get a cell phone for the purposes of digital banking, source: http://money.cnn.com/2015/01/22/investing/bill-gates-mobile-banking/).

    KiD eLLi

    Lol no it isn't. What Trip meant by the seal was that he is now given a new God-given identity. Smh... Before people tear down a brother on fire for God need to listen to some of his albums or at least this one to know that he doing his best to praise God. He probably doesn't get enough time to cater to everyone's needs when he's making a music video... Besides he's not here to please people.

  88. Roniyah McKnight

    Luv dis song Tripp lee my mane

  89. KaSonia R

    Its really sad how so many are lost. Matthew 7:13-14 KJV Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth o destruction, and many there be which go in thereat 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

  90. KaSonia R

    Gods people are peculiar people, set apart from the world this is what the bible say. A person cant eat from the Lords table and the table of devils, God is a Holy God, this is very worldly there is no difference between him and any other rapper except every now an then he say God or Jesus. People wake up read the word, stop going along with any and everything. All liars going to the fire. Someone has to really stand up for Jesus!. 2 Tim 2:15 KJV

    Rose McClain

    Look KaSonia R, I don't know who you are but let me tell you something, Christian Rap is not "wordly". Christian Rap is a music alternative of the gospel. No, it's not of the devil. I'm not really sure what 'religion' you 'descended' from, but it can't be Christianity. These songs speak of what Christ has done for us. Lecrae, KB, 116, Trip Lee, Tedashi, Da' Truth, Andy Mineo, and many more Christian Rappers love God with all their hearts. They come up with fun music that speaks the gospel. This music speaks to many who don't like calm music like worship by Hillsong. I love Hillsong. I love Christian Rap. You need to calm down, okay? If you don't like this then get over it and don't comment!! They're are bigger things us Christians should be worried about, like missions and interceding for others. I love God!!! He is my life, and he is all that I live for. So thanks but no thanks. Anybody can find a Bible verse to fit a subject, but you have to actually know what exactly that verse means. Bye. Jesus loves you!!!

    KaSonia R

    Don't be deceived, Did Jesus change up the word for the world so people would follow him? NO he didn't. Why would he speak about false doctrine and false prophets if there are none? And I have a right to comment on anything that I want to! just like you commented on mines. Many people don't like the truth..
    If you really love God like you say you do  you would stand up for his truth and not a lie. If you choose to follow these people that is on you! Me I will follow what the word say.
    Jesus is love! make sure you have the love of Christ Jesus, and help save a soul from the devil.


    @KaSonia R There are some things I agree with you on, but first of all, in light of your latest comment, what about the Word did Trip Lee change? He said Jesus is the hero who comes to save us. That creation is groaning (straight quote from Paul's epistle to the Romans), that he was lost in sin and blinded before Jesus saved him. And that we're all in this mess because of Adam's sin. Did we just listen to the same song?

    • _John __7:24__ (KJV)_

    24 _Judge not according to the appearance,_ _but judge righteous judgment._

    Maybe it would've helped to add the lyrics to the video, to avoid these accusations. But, on your part, put in a little more effort to listen to the words of the song and follow the narrative of the video. At the end of the day, the lyrics adhere to the gospel/New Testament and glorify our sinless Savior. Visually, the video's narrative is about becoming a part of the underground Christian movement and getting persecuted because of it.

    That said, and for the things I agree with you on: are you by chance reacting to the Lord of the Rings reference and the scene with the jacket/sunglasses (the latter of which is kinda like, "look at me, I'm so glam and fabulous")? Maybe there was a message behind it, but it was lost on me too. I don't see the relevance behind it except to be cool with the world. So in that I agree.

    But it's just plain exaggeration (lies/not reality) to say there's no difference between Trip Lee's video, and something put out by the hypersexual, druggy rappers and R&B artists out there today. Are you trying to insult the guy? or edify him? Be fair. Consider that Trip Lee has done a lot of growing in Christ since 2010 (the year he put out this video). This is the danger in putting things out when you're still new to the faith, or young in general. The worldliness still in you gets recorded permanently and others will come across it years later and judge you for it. May God have mercy and still use those mistakes for his glory.

    Seeing that you commented again only 8 months ago, accusing him of changing the Word, as someone who stands up for truth myself, I had to correct you. The truth of the Word has not been altered by the song, lyrical content, nor the video. Though the video has some worldly references (at most two, that I noticed anyway) the message, visually, was of Christ too: becoming a part of the underground Christian movement and getting persecuted because of it. Instead of stoning Trip Lee, wash his feet, point out the dirt to help him clean up.

    • _John __13:14__ (KJV)_

    14 _If I then,_ _your Lord and Master,_ _have washed your feet;_ _ye also ought to wash one another's feet._

    Don't lose the tender love for your fellow brothers in Christ just because they're still a little worldly. Correct them. Especially online, it's not like he—or anyone else—is going to talk over you and not listen. Your reply is open for all to see. Stay gentle and compassionate.

    On that note, and in case brother William ever reads this, this is why I am more of a fan of "lyric videos", so people concentrate on the praise you're giving to God. A picture is worth a thousand words and every second of film has 36 pictures (frames)—that's 36,000 words per second. Better to limit those words to the lyrics so people don't start interpreting things you never meant. Videos are great but you have to think about every single frame, every single object in the frame, and what that could possibly convey to the viewer (especially since this is going under your name). And you somehow have to figure out a way to guide the audience's attention to the story line you're thinking. They won't notice every detail right away. Human attention just doesn't work like that. (I'll have to rewatch this video to get it all). Unless you're going to put great thought into every scene, then lyric videos are your safest bet. That's my advice to Trip to avoid misunderstandings. And for people to be a little more understanding too. "Music Videos" are not the easiest art form either.

    My prayer for us all: may Jesus help us stay compassionate in our interactions online and offline.

    Jesus hung around the terrible crowd. He didn't conform to what they were doing, but changed the atmosphere. That's what Christian rap has done. It speaks to people who think worship music is lame. You can't approach everyone the same way. Even Jesus didnt do so. When approaching Pharisees he always quoted the Scripture and highlighted their hypocrisy. When approaching the masses he spoke of Gods love, while when talking to his disciples he always talked about what is to come.
