Let's Choose Life
Fruits: The Mixtape (2012)

lyrics

Once dead- “rise from the water-” heed to the psalmist
I’m “swamped” you could barely see the reeds in the tall mist
The hug from a stranger, the scene of a prom’s kiss
A love so subtle like trees in the calm wind
I bring forth the “peace” therefore, incomplete-
And we all play a “part:” pre-pare unity
Make haste with great strength like bodies of boxers
Let’s “seize” (seas) opportunities like bodies of aqua
‘Cause life is a test and it’s truly the hardest
I try my best to keep truth apart from the tar pits
Lessons work best when it’s rooted in hardship
It takes a wise man to find beauty in darkness
And flesh always follows the road the mind takes
So without dope, I will lead to a “high” place
-But evil advances the moment I’d stray
Devil asked me to dance... but I told him I’m “straight.”

Let’s choose life. Let’s choose life.
Throw your arms in the sky, now let’s choose life.
Let’s choose life. Let’s choose life.
Leave your past out of sight now, let’s choose life.
Let’s choose life. Let’s choose life.
Everybody as one now... let’s choose life.
Let’s choose life. Let’s choose life.
And we’ve only begun now... let’s choose life.

More addicting than a drug is the taste of your purpose:
The face of a servant with the faith in his service
It takes more than will to face pain and endurance:
But greatness equates to the grace in a person
I crave for the vision like a blind man’s wish
So a man comes along to mix grime and spit
How sweet be the sound of amazing grace
Once blind, now this wretch be in crazy shape:
To run laps ‘round Jericho, ‘walk’ what we talks
And to “lift up” his brothers, bench press with his cross
Freedom’s never “won,” but to some, it can “too”
Without “trinity,” it’s just something you can’t do
And Solomon’ll shiver to consider the bright rose
...To picture the rivers sugar coated in white snow
Superficial beauty never passed through time’s flow
... And a corpse ain’t alive even though it’s in nice clothes
