from Black & White by DJ Triple Threat





Uh, yeah
Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!
Uh, man listen
It’s a dichotomy y’all
Know what I’m saying
It’s something every single believer goes through
The flesh versus the spirit
So you ain’t gotta like you’re all alone
Ya Know what I’m saying
God’s grace is on us
It is the reality of being a believer though
So, listen
Yo (4x)

Verse 1:

Nothing good dwells in me
That’s in my flesh
‘Cause the good that I wanna do
Is always facing a threat
It’s that nature that we wrestle with
Like Jacob need that broken hip
We all need deliverance
Don’t act like you don’t
How else can one cope
With desires barrage
She’s got enough temptation
To fill a whole a garage
Gotta jet like Joseph
Stay pure in this body that I’m hosting
No lusting, no boasting
Yet sin stays hidden like soldiers in that Trojan


I got Jesus on my right side
Satan on my left side
Flesh versus spirit
Conflict on the inside
Conflict on the outside
It’s a daily fight
But I gotta please the Lord
‘Cause in Him there’s life
I got an angel on my right side
A demon on my left side
Conflicting natures
Dark versus light
Gotta live by the spirit
But my flesh don’t wanna hear it
Opposition inside of me
It’s a dichotomy

Verse 2:

The good that I wanna do
I do not do
The very thing I do not want to do
I always seem to do
Fornicating, black magic, idolatry
Angry fits, drunkness, favoritism, impurity
But the fruit of the spirit
Is love, joy, and peace
Patience, kindness, goodness
Self-control, gentleness, and faithfulness
Only one set can be repped by me
One is an open path
The other is narrow
One leads to wrath
The other, an infinite tomorrow
The choice is obvious
Yet not easily made
Christ paid my price
But I wanna be paid
There’s work to do
But I wanna chill in the shade
He tells to wait
But I want to get laid
He says to be still
But I wanna a license to ill
Lord help me!
‘Cause this flesh needs to chill for real!


Verse 3:

It’s enough to make kookoo
Like trying to figure out Soduku
Just when you think you got it
Something’s out of place
The ball, you just dropped it
So you get on your face
You pray to stop this
But God says here’s my sufficient grace
This stirs up a fire
But desire burns like a fire
Need to quell this fire
Before you burn in the fire
Whoever said this walk is easy
You know their liberal
Being a Christian ain’t easy
Believe me and every individual
So don’t look at me like
You’re holier than thou
That’s pride homie
Best to start repenting now
There ain’t no death sentence now
God looks at the heart’s intentions now
Need to realize ain’t nobody perfect now
It’s through Christ that we living now
That means we living by the Spirit now
Got fruit, that means the flesh don’t rule me now
God rules me, wow!
Look at me all cleaned up
All glory to God who loves us now, wow!
