​Christ Crucified

This song is by Shai Linne and appears on the album The Solus Christus Project (2005).

In this land of do or die
Where innocent bystanders lose their lives
You do what you gotta do just to survive
What's the answer? Christ crucified
Where brutal guys abuse their wives
Cats who seem to have it all commit suicide
Check your heart- what you trusting in? You decide
What's the answer? Christ crucified

To speak the truth is my main aim
And I don't mind saying the same things
We live in strange days and cats are trying to maintain
While sin holds the world prisoner like a chain gang
If you don't believe me, how do you explain pain?
Soon it's gonna rain flames; you can't play the blame game
You're on the highway to hell, you'd better change lanes
'Cause you'll only gain strain and your fame won't remain
It's plain, salvation through any other name is lame
I can't trip off somebody saying "He's offending me"
I see the enemy- plus the world needs the remedy
And I don't wanna dis you just tryin' to confront the issue
'Cause everyday, shells from guns rip through stomach tissue
Street soldiers toke spliffs and hold pistols
They got smoked- or take short cuts like cliff notes
Politicians might slit throats to get votes
While rich folks with jokes sniff coke on big boats
I spit quotes that make you sense your need for the Lord
And I don't seek your applause cause He's my reward
Spiritual hijacker- don't have to pack a nine; in line
With the Divine Mastermind- crash ya like a linebacker
Plus, there's a time factor- tomorrow's not promised
You borrow God's homage? You're just a blind actor
Life is fierce and dark- heed the pull of the truth
Christ can pierce your heart- even through your bulletproof.

In this land of do or die
Where innocent bystanders lose their lives
You do what you gotta do just to survive
What's the answer? Christ crucified
Where brutal guys abuse their wives
Cats who seem to have it all commit suicide
Check your heart- what you trusting in? You decide
What's the answer? Christ crucified

Phat sacks dull brains in the Alley of Fears
Backpacks full of pain in the Valley of Tears
You rallied for years, trying to climb the Mountain of Blood and Sweat
Just to get drowned in the Flood of Regrets
Hey yo, I've been through it- everyday under the influence
Or should I say "SINfluence"
It started in the garden when we departed from our Sovereign
Now we're darkened in our hearts and we're starving for a pardon
The enemy is within- no one's protected
Not one area of society is unaffected
Which way is up, when authorities are corrupt?
Mandatory minimums lock minorities up
But it's not about conspiracy theories- you're spiritually weary
Your future appears to be eerie- you hearing me clearly?
Straight from the frying pan into eternal fire-
The fate of every dying man who spurns Messiah!

In this land of do or die
Where innocent bystanders lose their lives
You do what you gotta do just to survive
What's the answer? Christ crucified
Where brutal guys abuse their wives
Cats who seem to have it all commit suicide
Check your heart- what you trusting in? You decide
What's the answer? Christ crucified

When I say "Trust in Jesus", cats look at me like I'm crazy, yet
This song is your "wake-up show" like Sway and Tech
'Cause sin's problem is much greater than human hurts
You owe a debt to the Creator of the universe
And trust me son, He'll do much more than dial your number
The Lord is gonna track you down like a bounty hunter
On judgment day, coppin' pleas ain't gonna work
'Cause God is like a shower drain, He sees all your dirt
The evil you do with your devious crew
You're rotten to the core, He's knocking at your door
Your weed and your brew, the freaks that you screw
You're shopping at the store; you should be dropping to the floor
If you make it your business to pray for forgiveness
The Savior of misfits will take you from His hit list
But say you dismiss this- it shows you're misled
'Cause like "The 6th Sense" you don't even know that you're dead.

In this land of do or die
Where innocent bystanders lose their lives
You do what you gotta do just to survive
What's the answer? Christ crucified
Where brutal guys abuse their wives
Cats who seem to have it all commit suicide
Check your heart- what you trusting in? You decide
What's the answer? Christ crucified
