Lecrae - Don't Waste Your Life

The clothes you wear, the job you work, the color your skin naw you Christian first
People get to livin for a job, make a little money start living for a car
Get ‘em a wife a house kids and a dog, when they retire they living high on the hog
But guess what? They didn’t ever really live at all, to live is Christ and that’s Paul I recall

Daniel Melingo - Cruel Hand

to lay them away in a mortgage
and if he sees a fellow
living high on the hog
he makes like deaf and dumb
