Summer Days    13

(Verse) (Rap)

I'm not a man who credits God

for everything

like building my strength due to all my pain

whatevers my fault I'll take the blame

My god is amazing he's more than a friend

he don't give a gift, to take it back again

Some of my peeps just don't understand

life is a game, a strategy plan

you fail at your goal, you're on a roll, you don't care no mo'

God is not the blame for the burdens you bare though

We make our way by choices

we choose

he's not to blame for pain we go through

(Rap)

I've been detested

said I'ze outa line

a false arrest

no proof to the crime

locked behind bars

a very long time

with murders n' rapist

in a world unkind

During court the judge turned to me

he said give your reason state your plea

I'd just praised my Lord 

N I'z feelin' fine

so sticking to my faith

I stated my line

(Rap)

God gives life and the beauty that we share

Satan gets the credit for the burdens I bare

another 6 six months this time no bail

can't cuss and fuss cause it's Satan I'll hail

(Chorus)

(Female sings)

These aren't the best nor the worst of times

God has given signal, the devil's alive

hold your ground, leave your worries behind

these are the trials from the signs of the times

(Rap)

He's out to push you to your brink

till you cut off the Lord and give thanks to him

(Verse) (Rap)

But I've been there

I've played that game

It's got me nowhere

but a firey flame

and when I'm guilty

I'll take the blame

and when I've done nothing

their records claim

I'll praise my Lord

N I'll feel fine

sticking to my faith

N stating my line

(Chorus)

(Rap)

God gives life and the beauty that we share

N Satan gets the credit for burdens I bare

(Female sings)

These aren't the best nor worst of times

God has given signal, the devil's alive

Hold your ground, leave your worries behind

these are the trials from the signs of the times

(Different Rapper)

I've been broken down many times

seeking out dollars, only finding dimes

(Female sings)

These aren't the best nor worst of times

(rap)

I've lived my life

I've played for keeps

no holds barred

Cause I was weak

weak to sin

with a strong man's core

I let the devil in

didn't care anymore

(Woman sings)

These aren't the best nor worst of times

God has given choices , he'll lead the blind

(rap)

People coming up an telling me

give God a chance, it's who you need

(1St rapper)

I did my part

I fought my war

from hell and back

I shut that door

Now I'm shot down for my belief

But my Lord is real, he's who I seek

(Female sings)

Hold your ground, leave your worries behind

these are the trials from the signs of the times

(Rap)

God gives life and the beauty that we share

Satan gets the credit for all burdens I bare

(Repeat chorus)

These aren't the best nor worst of times

God has given signal, the devil's alive

Hold your ground leave your worries behind

These are the trials from the signs of the times

I was questionable of that chorus when reading it, but it flows allot better from the lips then it does read.

Well done! Well written, and well put. The last line (hook-line) in the chorus was a great ending too.

The rhythm was very consistent and remained interesting through ought the whole song.

It had all the right breaks and nice variation with the other rapper in there. My only concern is it might drag a bit, but its engaging so it might still be very listenable

if it goes over 4-5 minutes. Try do what ever you can to keep the instrumentation/backing varied (even with little details) so as to not make it sound too monotonous. 

 

My interpretation is that your talking about the uses of good and evil relative to your belief, and how things aren't so black and white.

Doesn't matter if your doing the bad or good, but rather what path your seeking in the long run, as long as you can accept its black when its black and its white when its white so as to not confuse them for each other and lose your mind.

I believe you also say they are tools to use in specific contexts of your life to either embrace the evil you've done or the good you've done so you can keep a cool

head and know where you stand morally with a positive outlook. Almost like a guide to help you distinguish where we ourselves are and where other people are too.

I suspect this helps the likes of you and other soldiers keep sane in an environment many lose their mind and spirit because of the morally evil things you might be involved with or experience leading a good person on a good bath that got led astray to think they are bad people because they see it all as black or white. Same thing for serving time. 

 

I could be wrong: but as far as I've guessed In this context it makes sense to me, because I hold a similar belief. If your doing something bad that helps you or that you have no other choice in to go forward, then you might as well embrace it with a positive attitude. Just because you've done wrong before, doesn't mean you have to look at yourself with a negative outlook, especially when your seeking the forgiveness of god. But at the same time you need to know in your core what you did was wrong "hold a strong core" this will keep you on the path of good and make you strive for a positive balance. 

You really gave me a fresh outlook, and these lyrics make me feel better about some of the evil things I had to do and still do to get by in this increasingly difficult economy.

At the end of the day its more important what path I seek, not what evil paths I was led astray to at one point or another and had to survive through to live.

 

Keep writing/rapping. And please PM a song link if you turn this into a song or have other rap songs recorded. I'd love to hear em mate.

Don't sacrifice quality for quantity and please keep rapping about real life themes. Inspiring lyrics.


 

Cheers
