"Open Letter Battlefield f Swoope Trip Lee and Jai"

by KB
Album: Weight

Intro:
I really appreciate y'all comin out to pray with me man
My hearts just been real heavy here lately man
I got a stack of letters in and I thought we should read a couple of em
Pray at the end so
I got one right here from Atlanta
'N it says..

KB:
Dear KB
What's goin on this is Ashley from the show
That you was doin with Trip Lee, the crew and then the Spirit was movin man it was really dope
Yea, when y'all left the A
I was so encouraged in the faith
And I bless the Lord for HGA
I wanna start this off by sayin thanks (There's a battle goin on)
But lately, I've had to struggle with secrets of my past in the past 5 years of singleness (I know it)
I'm lustin, I'm sinnin
But my lust here is different
Since I've been so alone, I kinda long for the touch of a woman (A battle goin on)
And I know it's wrong, but dudes never ever show me attention
I go unnoticed, it was a joke
But girls show me interest
Dudes at my church say that
I'm the type of chick that they want (They lied)
But when I see the girls they date, I know they really don't
I get jealous quick, I hate the mirror
I don't feel pretty
I've even contemplated surgery to feel skinny
I know it's real silly
The world tells me just "embrace it, you were born this way" (That's a lie)
This is lust
Ok, I tried talkin to the people at church, but they just look at me funny only addin' to the hurt
Now I'm torn, cuz the other day I stumbled over porn
I'm supposed to be a leader man how can I move on (This is a lie)
Thats why I'm comin to you prayin
I'm prayin that you could pray for your sister to make it through (Jesus)
I'm cryin as I write cuz I wanna be right
Many girls are fallin and I don't wanna fall too

Hook:
There's a war inside my heart and mind everyday I fight it
So make me alive to the truth I rely on Your spirit inside me
It's time to make war, war, war, war, war, war
This life is a battlefield
War, war, war, war, war, war (Swoope)
This life is a battlefield
(You mind readin this one man')

Swoope:
Dear KB
We're big fans of yours, me and my lady
When you came to the show, we was in the front row screamin 1-1-6 goin crazy all for the HG-Aaaa
Was a crazy night
What's even crazier is the girl I was datin then is fianc' now
I'm engaged to her
The words that you left man rocked us
So I went and got our left hand rocked up
But if I could be honest
I'm tryin hard to abstain and not get her knocked up
Of course I want kids
But even more than that, I wanna please the Father
But when I look into her eyes I can't concentrate
Man I can't even lie I wanna consummate
She's the one I'm sure
But I wanna stay pure
Scary the way that I'm yearnin for her
Gettin married but I'm burnin for her
Hard for me to wait til she walkin that aisle down
In her white gown
I'm thinkin night gown
Man I wanna do it right now
Why wait when I feel like she my wife now'
The way that I'm feelin is natural, but KB is it Godly'
Is it wrong lust or strong love'The feelin inside for wifey
Honor the Lord in Datin her
Wanna do the same in waitin but
This temptation's a beast please pray for us

Hook:
There's a war inside my heart and mind everyday I fight it
So make me alive to the truth I rely on Your spirit inside me
It's time to make war, war, war, war, war, war
This life is a battlefield
War, war, (Aye Trip) war, war, (Yessuh) war, war (You mind prayin for this beloved brother and sister o' mine) (Yessuh)
This life is a battlefield

Trip Lee:
Dear God
We come in His name
The slain and risen Who's runnin this thang
Christ the Lord the One Who can bring
Healin the hurts of the one's that He claims
We fear we got nothin to gain
By clinging to Christ, the love of the King
But He was under the same
Tempted and hurt, He's accustomed to pain
Lord they feel it, feel it
Pain but their joy can't kill it, kill it
Feelin like life been pillaged
Can I please intercede for a minute'
This is not outta your grasp
Your grace can shake, Your power can smash
I pray this hour and ask allow em to see You powers surpass
That sin devoured they past
Drown em with mercy, shower them fast
Give em the faith to follow the Father
He's Abba yet Honored please Swallow the trash
Dear Lord, You are never gone
You promised You'd make em forever strong
Your arm isn't short, it is very long
Make em like Christ
You get em home, Aye

Hook:
There's a war inside my heart and mind everyday I fight it
So make me alive to the truth I rely on Your spirit inside me
It's time to make war, war, war, war, war, war
This life is a battlefield
War, war, war, war, war, war
This life is a battlefield
