The Battle of the Mind

 

The Battle of the Mind
The Battle of the Mind
How could peace eva’ be mine
When the devil keeps pushin’ rewind, rewind?

Young people throwin’ up gang signs
Livin’ a life of crime
In perilous times
A chosen generation
Whose lives are a’ wastin’
Even though what their crew is doin’ is wrong
They just want to belong
Who will answer their cries?
Who will counter the devil’s lies?
Who will fight the battle of their minds
And redeem these perilous times?
So many are speakin’
So many are seekin’
For a listenin’ ear
If only we would hear,
The cries of our youth
Lookin’ for the Truth

The Battle of the Mind
The Battle of the Mind
How could peace eva’ be mine
When the devil keeps pushin’ rewind, rewind?

How long will ‘dis pain last?
How long must I wear the chains of the past?
How long will I continue the task
Of putin’ on ‘dis hypocritical mask
Pretending everything is all right
Pretendin’ we all tight?
When goin’ home alone at night
Emotional, physical, sexual abuse
What’s the use callin’ a truce?
The scars run so deep
Some things I can’t even speak
Ain’t got no mo’ tears to weep
I’m wounded
I’m broken
So, what ya’ gonna do now ‘dat I’ve spoken?

The Battle of the Mind
The Battle of the Mind
How could peace eva’ be mine
When the devil keeps pushin’ rewind, rewind?

Sound the battle cry
Let the soldiers of God arise
And destroy the devil’s lies
Let the soldiers of God arise
And declare the Truth of the wise
We’ve been called to war with our two-edged Sword
We’ve been called to fight through the darkest night
Settin’ things right
Spreadin’ the Light of God’s Truth
Till all things become new.

The Battle of the Mind
The Battle of the Mind
How could peace eva’ be mine
When the devil keeps pushin’ rewind, rewind?

I refuse to give up on our youth.
I refuse to stop speakin’ the Truth
Till all things become new
Cause there’s a chosen generation
Waitin’ to lead ‘dis nation
Those who have an ear
Let them hear

The Battle of the Mind
The Battle of the Mind
How could peace eva’ be mine
When the devil keeps pushin’ rewind, rewind?
