(Verse) More dedicated than Tom Cruise is to his churches. Blessed as hell with a heavenly flow; my songs be lifting curses The few who made an attempt on me they all ended up in hearses. We fixating on making a living killing and stealing; I’m gonna reel in the millions through these (verses) So I keep scribbling put any thought on paper That I deem interesting. But if it’s shit; rewrite in later. Till I drop a song that repeats all day like a call to prayer Tried and tested; the 9 to 5 life of just waiting in line Fuck that. I was never meant to stay here! For most of us it’s inevitable because cheddar is indispensable But time is nonrefundable and enjoying mine has been wonderful Working hard in something enjoyable to reach the unattainable (damn) I heard them say you hammer the nail and pen the pages, I embrace a state of stasis because building a song takes too many fucking stages, Where the heart and mind engages to pen some bars that last throughout the fucking ages. (Throughout the ages) (Pre-chorus) I’ll make this shit last throughout the ages. I promise I’ll make this shit last throughout the ages. (Chorus) Hammer to nail Pen to Paper Nail to hammer Paper to pen Hammer to nail Pen to Paper Nail to hammer Paper to pen Hammer to nail Pen to Paper Nail to hammer Paper to pen Hammer to nail Pen to Paper Nail to hammer Paper to pen (Verse) And you can exclude me from all the other dudes Stumbling into rap mumbling and even messing with the autotune I’m medicated with dedication I’m going to be blowin up soon To the moon and beyond, creeping into fire like it’s june. Coming through menacing like a monsterous monsoon. With that curtain raising I’ll be guns blazing like in Platoon. Stained with sagacious streets, lined with lush lyricism, Notes of fresh bars, and genius? Well, maybe just a teaspoon. I resent the fact that this industry is lacking talent. A lack in drive to find the right name to put on the fucking ballot. I guess you could call them the XXXXXX XX XXXX XXXXXX XXXXXXX XXXXXXXX XX XXXXXX XXX XXXXXXXX XX XXXX XXXX XXXXX XX XXXXXXXX XXX X XXXXXXXXX XXXXXXX XXXX XX X XX XXXXXXX XXXX X XXXXX XXXX XXXX XX XXX XXX XXXX XXXX XXXXX XXX XXXX XXXX XXXXX XXX XXXXX XX XXXX XXXX XXXX XX XXXX XXXXX XXXXX XXXX XXXXXX XX XXXX XXXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXXXXXX XX XX XXXXXX XX XXX XXXX XXXXXXX XXX X XXXXX XXXX XXX XXXXXXX XXXXXXXXX XXXX XXX XXXXXXX XXXXX XXXX XX XXX XXXX XXXXX XX XXXXXXXX XX XXXXX XX XXXXXXX XXXX XXX XXX XXXXXXX XXX XXXXX XXXX XXX XXXXX XXXXXX XXXXXXX XXXX XXXX XXXXXX XXX XXX XXXXX XXXXXXXX XXXX XXX XXXXXXX XXXXXXX XXXXXXXX XXXXXX XX XXXX XXX XX XXXXX XXXX XX XXXXXX XXXXX XX XXX XXXXXX XX XXXX XXX XX XXXXX XXXX XX XXXXXX XXXXX XX XXX XXXXXX XX XXXX XXX XX XXXXX XXXX XX XXXXXX XXXXX XX XXX XXXXXX XX XXXX XXX XX XXXXX XXXX XX XXXXXX XXXXX XX XXX

Okay, God

By Lauren Wilson

I wrote this song at a rocky time in my relationship, I knew that my faith was being tested. I did not know what the next steps were in my life. I surrendered everything, I asked God for guidance and a strong purpose. Within the next day, I was flooded with ideas and purpose in my fashion design work. This song speaks to the power of listening and walking in faith. I never once questioned any of the desires that were put in my heart, I simply said "Okay, God what comes next?"
