This song is by Lecrae, features PRo and appears on the album Rehab (2010).

This song contains a sample from "Hold Me Down" by Derek Minor.
I wake up before I throw a beater on
Fall to my knees thank the Lord for the new shalom

(Verse 1 - Lecrae)
Aye, I wake up before I throw a beater on
I thank the Lord for peace, or you can say shalom
I'm on and I'm gone, out the dome gon' rep my home
New Jerusalem, yeah you knew what we've been on
Got the word in my heart
When the day start then the darkness wanna get us sparked up
So I keep a guard up, this enemy wanted to get the best of me
And leave me all scarred up
And I'm know I'm marked up by the Spirit
Who's still in me fillin' me up with everything I need
Yeah I got that cheese but I don't need a piece
I just need peace please
This life ain't easy, matter fact it's opposite
And I got the test results, I'm very positive
That's why I'm on this track with PRo because I'm 'posed to give
Some potent portions of potion proportionate to poster kids
Of pain and suffering, whose daddies never loved on them
And wouldn't know the peace of God if it was placed in front of them
And I was one of them, I don't take my life for granted
So I'ma use this day tryna share my faith and pray that seeds are planted

I wake up before I throw a beater on
Fall to my knees thank the Lord for the new shalom

(Verse 2 - PRo)
Early in the morning AM, you know that I thank him
'Cause he still call me clean regardless of the mess I lay in
My vision on the throne clearer than Patrón, yes sir I am gone
In my zone thinkin' 'bout the way my Father put me on
It's nothin' but grace how he stuck in me faith
And he died for the ultimate villain
I still disobey but regardless I'm chained
When I shoulda been dead but I'm livin'
See I know when I'm wrong he won't leave me alone
That's the beauty of God and his mercy
So I'm singin' a song about him on a cross
Where my heart was the item of purchase
While livin' with pride - so worthless
Say they wrestle and fight but I merk it
Whether live or die I'm dedicated to Christ
Yes sir, I'ma stand on my purpose
Put my faith in him 'cause he perfect
Insurance like Geico
'Cause if I do not have his love
I'm Norman Bates - psycho
I go hard, I still rebel with Lecrae
Give my whole life to the King, don't trip just let him invade
I Sho Baraka or Obama, this peace is more than just worth it
So call Tedashii, tell him Identity Crisis averted

I wake up before I throw a beater on
Fall to my knees thank the Lord for the new shalom

(Verse 3 - Lecrae and PRo)
[Lecrae] 24/7 all the time, yeah I'm on my grind
Dyin' every day I'm tryin' rhyme, hope to save they life
Peace, what I got I feel released from the knot
Sin bound me in, but Jesus had the keys to the lock
Inside his boot camp, yeah I know the drill, flesh kill
But his will is with this peace that I feel, and it's real
Aye, earth is not my home, while I roam and roam
Got the Lord up on my dome, restin' in that new shalom
[PRo] See it goes C.H.R.I.S.T. G.O.D., his spirit inside of me
And without his L.O.V.E. I'm another lost soul so obviously
When I drank the livin' water that's nothing more than a product
Of the grace through faith that I found in him
The love he give could accurse of sin
Why should I ever give in?
So chase that money, get your wrist cold as refrigerators
I will be an outcast till he raise me up - elevators
Me and you
Yo mama, yo cousin, my brother
Pray we never sell our soul for a chance to be stuntin'
'Cause everything that's good to me the Lord he done it

I wake up before I throw a beater on
Fall to my knees thank the Lord for the new shalom
