Oh Wretched Man

The Ambassador

Oh wretched man- the problem ain't that we rock Timbs 
That I am- the problem is we've got sin 
Who shall deliver me?- even with a new start 
From this body of death?- we need to be freed, we need a new heart 

Oh wretched man- the problem is not just behavior 
That I am- the problem is there's rot in your nature 
Who will deliver me- even with a new start 
Our Lord- we need to be freed, we need a new heart 

We're in a hip-hop era full of hip-hop errors 
Not just the block but the heart's what hip-hop mirrors 
Somebody told me that we're not naughty 
I objected and directed their attention to the Top 40 
We stopped at the top ten; looked how we propped sin 
The case was closed when the videos were dropped in 
From naked females to dirty sex in emails 
It affects from retail down to the street sales- every detail 
You can leave the heart unsupervised 
Watch the heart ask for sin and ask the cashier to please super-size 
Read Romans and peep your corners for bonus 
Were gonna be wrong as long as were breathing- we need a Jonah 

I serve word cause it's what the suburbs and the hood needs 
Wreckin' the thought that heaven's earned by your goods deeds 
I'm mad precise when it's the after-life 
You bank on good deeds but you can't think this "dis-counts" like half the price 
Sin is genetic it's 
The reason your appetite for it is husky like that school up in Connecticut 
Check the Bible for a honest diagnosis 
Or just smell cause you can tell like chronic halitosis 
We all sin- you know we each are prone 
If only humans were affected then to each his own 
But God sees it and it's reached his throne 
In him there's no sin 
Like there's no such thing as pizza bones 
The spiritual truth- we have no spiritual loot 
We're bankrupt and we have bad spiritual root 
Every day we grow bad spiritual fruit 
We need God to hold back that spiritual boot 

Whenever God is ready he can break down a sinner 
Take down a sinner, like I take a steak down for dinner 
The job of God the Spirit is to pull 
A person to Christ 
It's like it's irresistible 
He makes Christ known 
Your eyes light up like when the break light's on 
There's a change- "I've grown" 
I know it happened to me; I met the Surgeon 
He changed my heart, there went the blunts and the cursin' 
Kept on workin', for certain He keeps purgin' 
Now instead bourbon, I'm fervently reading Spurgeon 
That blow God handed me 
Put me on hand and knee 
Brought a kid that's caramel low like Anthony 
Now can it be? Got me in His family 
Reppin' the kingdom of God, droppin' Him on the industry 
This is the truth, I pray you can catch it fam' 
Jesus Christ can give life to a wretched man
