​Authority

This song is by 116 Clique and appears on the album Man Up (2011).

(Lecrae)
If you can't follow you can't never lead
And you don't run a thing till you runnin' to the King
And who I follow's who they follow when they follow me
A real man bows down to authority

(Tedashii)
On the real, I'm a man, but I guess it's just my gender
When it comes to manhood, man we leave it to our sisters
What a tragedy, travesty, passive in our actions
Living absentee, stand and wait while asking them to marry me
We went left into death saying next what a mess
Beating on my chest and thinking I am strong, Bowflex
If you gon' take charge for the Lord then you lead out
Being one who serves like the one who chose to bleed out
Submitting to authority, government that's over me
And to the Father who is sovereign, real men stay orderly
I learned to submit because God gives the command
While she follows me 'cause I follow him with holes in his hands

(Lecrae)
If you can't follow you can't never lead
And you don't run a thing till you runnin' to the King
And who I follow's who they follow when they follow me
A real man bows down to authority
Bow down, bow down to authority
Bow down, bow down to authority
And who I follow's who they follow when they follow me
Bow down, bow down to authority

(PRo)
Hey I don't care what they tell you or cats try to sell you
You was made in the image of God, his craftsmanship is in your cells dude
You are not a animal or just a foolish beast
You were made to oversee this Creation of the King now
Flashing your badge like a cop that's got some power
But you should be a tool to encourage and empower
And stop runnin' 'round with women like a little dog in heat
If she disrespect herself, show her who she's supposed to be
She a queen, and the Scriptures say she is the weaker vessel
It's more like fine china, doesn't mean she's any lesser
The equal wouldn't smash fine art to the ground
So why use your body or your words to tear her down, hey

(Lecrae)
If you can't follow you can't never lead
And you don't run a thing till you runnin' to the King
And who I follow's who they follow when they follow me
A real man bows down to authority
Bow down, bow down to authority
Bow down, bow down to authority
And who I follow's who they follow when they follow me
Bow down, bow down to authority

You ask 'em what's a man?
They say that dude that got them stacks on stacks and rubber bands, finger to the government
I want it I get it it's mine, can't tell me nothing bro
My money my girl and my nine, these my rules (what you talkin' 'bout?)
No one man should have all that power
He doesn't have it 'cause power is not ours
Feelin' like you in control, no you are owned
God is running it, do as you're told, ok let me talk to 'em real quick
I'ma get to talkin' 'bout submitting to authority, somebody being over me, we say no no
But we gotta get that if we are not submitting then we missing the fact that we are not our own
God can judge me, and the Judge says if you do not follow then you can't lead
Get it, live it, got it? Good

(Lecrae)
If you can't follow you can't never lead
And you don't run a thing till you runnin' to the King
And who I follow's who they follow when they follow me
A real man bows down to authority
Bow down, bow down to authority
Bow down, bow down to authority
And who I follow's who they follow when they follow me
Bow down, bow down to authority
