nonsense lyrics – flame

guilt and doubt foolished you: i was told some nonsense
(i was told some nonsense)
(i was told some nonsense)
guilt and doubt foolished you: i was told some nonsense
(i was told some nonsense)
(i was told some nonsense)

it’s crazy how god makes us babies and then gives us souls
and then we enter into this world and sin it then takes control, and it molds us through…
block races and mama’s hands like that ain’t can, that ain’t can make us bad.
i remember as a young boy chillin in the projects.
so many crazy things i have seen i couldn’t even process.
when you see them dope boys. you just bank them blues is cool.
selling work and skipping school.
confused like a b…
something deep inside of you (is captured by the nonsense)
club hoppin’, pistol poppin’, bodies droppin’, (violence).
ever noticed n*body ever taught you how to do wrong.
it’s just the way that we are pr*ne. we pick up all on our own.
and i know i ain’t alone, cause dirty we’re all the same same.
mamma and daddy. adam and eve as they’re named.
and even though, you and i may not be from the same city.
i guarantee it’s a fact: you have this in common with me.

guilt and doubt foolished you: i was told some nonsense
(i was told some nonsense)
(i was told some nonsense)
guilt and doubt foolished you: i was told some nonsense
(i was told some nonsense)
(i was told some nonsense)

that’s what you thought of as a young and doing what they say is tight.
in the schools; kickin’ and fight.
in the hood; stealin’ bikes.
then they tell you that it’s cool
“everybody’s smokin’ weed.
sleeping ’round like merry-go”
probably got you growing trees.
then you get a little older; they say “let’s go hit the club”
now you take a little crack, looking for a stronger drug.
there’s somebody coming pregnant. you ain’t planned parenthood.
now you’re sitting, thinking should i hit a planned parenthood.
then you dive a little deeper in that culture, in her fist.
“you don’t need to read that bible, cause that god he don’t exist.”
“yoy don’t need to trust in jesus, because he was just a man”
“please don’t listen to them christians, they have no clue what they are saying.”
now you say you hate religion, cause you just wanna be free.
say: “imma do what makes me happy, and whatever pleases me, and whatever pleases me is exactly what imma do.”
i was raptured, i was captured in that state of mind too, but i was:

guilt and doubt foolished you: i was told some nonsense
(i was told some nonsense)
(i was told some nonsense)
guilt and doubt foolished you: i was told some nonsense
(i was told some nonsense)
(i was told some nonsense)

but now i love the father so much, i love son so much, the holy spirit so much.
that i don’t wanna turn away, so when the world tries to clutch, when my sin tries to clutch, when my flesh tries to clutch.
then i must turn away.
i don’t wanna break his heart with my l*st and my pride.
i don’t wanna break his heart, cause i trust in my god.
and i count it all as loss, just so i can know him.
paid and died for my sin, so i can’t live for them.
and i can’t live for you.
and i can’t live for me.
see i’m hidden in christ. like playing hide and go seek.
i was dead in my sin, but god made me alive.
together with christ jesus. ephesians 2 verse 5.
i’m seated in heavenly places; by his grace i’ve been saved.
i refuse to dig a ditch, go and lay back in my grave.
i’ve been captured by his beauty.
i pursue him super hard.
not no comfort, power, money, pleasure, not a stupid car.
i’m not:

guilt and doubt foolished you: i was told some nonsense
(i was told some nonsense)
(i was told some nonsense)
guilt and doubt foolished you: i was told some nonsense
(i was told some nonsense)
(i was told some nonsense)

(yeah man. i know how it is brow.
we have been captured by sin.
but now we need to be captured again by god’s holiness man.)
