T-Stone, what it do, man, yeah
Somebody wave yer hands like dis (like dis)
E'erbody wave yer hands like dis (like dis)
Yeah, y'all can dance to this (yeah)
Yeah, y'all can dance to this
Less git it, less git it man (less git it man)
Less git it, less git it man (yeah)

[Verse 1]
I wasn't never the type that's tryna kill folks
Nothing too bad maybe dabbled in a lil smoke
A lil lust, but wasn't never seen as a bad dude
Was livin for myself dreamed of wealth and makin cash move
Was told of a savior who raised named Jesus
That paid full of grace and I did believe it
They told me He would hold me and I was blessed with Christ
I'm like, "I get to go to Heaven? Man I'm set for life."
But after that, I was just ya average Sunday Christian
Up in church with my bible, back Monday sinning
Up in the school yard trying hard to blend in
Was acting dead as a carcass, far from livin
I was all up in the world, I was just like the rest of them
Called myself a Christian, but would sin with the best of them
I wouldn't share my faith or read my Word it's crazy
I was a immature believer, a spiritual baby

[Chorus: x2]
We gotta grow, we can't stay in the same place
We gotta grow, we gotta be seeking His face
We gotta grow, so if you saved and you've been pardoned
We gotta grow, you ain't done you just getting started

[Verse 2]
I was my own guide, would never dive in His truth
But didn't realize that I was set aside for His use
So I'd just live for what I thought was my best interest
Around nonbelievers you couldn't tell the difference
Wan't a thug, nah I ain't got no horror story
But was livin for myself not the Lord and His glory
My confession: I didn't seek my Dad's perfection
Was goin down the wrong road like I had bad directions
Until He showed my not imitating the Christ
And livin fo me I was truly wasting my life
And that Christ died so I could have relationship
But by my actions I refused to take this gift
Until He made a switch and now I want some mo of Him daily
By His grace I'm growing and have matured from a baby
I'm so grateful that I've been torn from sin
And day by day He's makin me more like Him


[Verse 3]
So for my believers, I just wanna encourage y'all
To draw closer to the Lord I know you heard His call
Even if you ain't smokin an shootin at domes
If you don't do it all fo His glory, you doin it wrong
Heaven ain't the only reason we got saved
If we don't get to know Jesus then we got played
Plus we gotta change, He said He'd change us all
And the faith without fruit, that ain't faith at all (why)
Sanctification, check Romans 6
We 'posed to switch, die to sin and grow in holiness
All my brothers and sister I know this walk is tough
But even if you young just getting saved is not enough
We gotta talk to Him, read who the Lord in the skies is
The reason we breathe is to enjoy and glorify Him
I'm grateful the Father is changing ya boy
And getting closer to Him is an unexplainable joy
