DOG THE NINE

Music by Bride
Lyrics by Dale Thompson

If you live in the eternal now you’re a ball in hand (James 4:14 Psalms 102:3)
Never believed in luck a benefactor of the damned
(Mark 16:16)
Lost your rhythm and your stealing’ fire breather bringing smoke
(Psalms 52:3)
Whose got the church key more of that Claymore dope?

You wouldn’t go decafe you said Jesus was a laugh (Matthew 27:22 Romans8:2)
Now whose is that in the body?
(Proverbs 1:10)
In the neighborhood you thought about repenting
(Matthew 22:19)
But you’ rather take from them be the one whose given
(Mark 14:11)

You better know the house rules to finish in this life (Hosea 4:6 Acts 20:24)
Cause you’ll learn the difference if you Dog the Nine
“I can not seem to say what I want to relate, but by His power I will say
The picture of what he wants to portrait wants me by Hid Spirit to associate
(2 Corinthians 5:18-19, Romans 1:36, 1 Corinthians 8:6, Colossians 1:16, 1 John 2:2)

The warehouse getting smaller skitzing played yourself (2 Timothy 4:3)
Versace on your back sideways and ill
(Ezekiel 18:4)
You were left behind you weren’t watching’ you were sleeping
(Mark 13:36 Luke 22:46)
Now your mother’s squatted down alone and she’s weeping.

You might not think its phat to apply the cross (Titus 1:1)
The blood of Christ was shed to save your soul
(Ephesians 1:7 Colossians 1:14)
It’s all about the sin that you’re compiling
(Hosea 7:2)
Cast salt into your violence stop freestyling
(Romans 3:23)

You got the right to remain silent or freedom to speak your peace (1 Thessalonians 3:8)
Straight up with the truth I give you liberty
(2 Corinthians 3:17 Galatians 5:1)
Why you wanna live out of bounds with a riot in your veins
Hoodlum can’t find no peace only trauma in the grave
(Amos 9:2)

You need a designated driver for your hostility
Spiritual habitation for your responsibility
Effectual fervent prayer touches the throne of God
Your self inflicted mass suicide die with the mob
(Psalms 55:23)

: In nineball (the game of billards), to have a simple shot on the nine, but to miss it due to the pressure. Can apply to missing any shot, as in "Joe dogged it".
