Rebel (Intro)
Lyrics Lecrae

I'm in rebellion

[Verse 1:]
Jesus was a rebel, a renegade, outlaw
A sanctified troublemaker but he never sinned, naw
And he lived his life by a different set of rules
The culture ain't approve so you know they had to bruise him
That's the way they do man, they swear they so gangsta
Everyone's the same, everybody do the same stuff
Tattoo, piercings smokin' up and drinking, money and sex plus them extravagant weekends
Man if that's the high life I'll puff puff pass that
You leave evaporated like missing a gas cap
I guess I'm passed that cause I am in rebellion
I'd rather have a dollar in my pocket than a mill-ion
I'm scared to worship money, and my wants over Elyon
I'll remain a rebel while the rest of them just carry on
This is what I live for, this the hill I'm buried on
If Jesus is the truth that means one of us is very wrong
Think about it

"I know that in our day rebel means sinner.
But everyone is sinning, so it is no longer rebellious to sin!
Jesus was a rebel who was counter-cultural."

[Verse 2:]
No glory in me
All glory to the king on the throne (Jesus)
You either love him or leave him alone but you can't do both
Yeah, I know you heard that once in song
I pray you hear 10 mo befo' ya gone
Hey listen up, holmes
Stage is the corner and my crowd is the streets
And I rap the bread of life cause they dyin' to eat
I'm a rebel you know the kind that die in the street
Cause you refuse to conform, won't eat the kings meat
Look, if Christ rebelled by shunning the cultured
He eatin' with sinners givin Pharisees ulcers
He never got married, he was broke, plus homeless
Yeah that's the god I roll wit
Ya boy gotta wife and no I neva cheated
I'm prayin for humility whenever I get heated
Forget about the drugs rebel against pornography
This ain't how it oughta be, homie it' how it's gotta be
A rebel

"You are just a conformist, if you are drunk and naked, driving around on a lot of motorcycles,smoking cigarettes and breaking commandments, getting pregnant out of wed-lock.
Everyone has done that, it's so tiring!
If you really want to be a rebel read your bible, because no one is doing that!
That's rebellion, that's the only rebellion left!"
