attention LYRCIS by Jonathan Solomon:
[Intro]
It’s already been written
In God’s holy Word, anybody read it?
About a Man being crucified
And dying to be heard

[Skit]
Bro, I get you saying, like, it’s for the Kingdom
But like, how the whole Kingdom gon’ hear you unless you, like, market yourself?
I just feel like God called you to like stadiums
Or like, thousands of people
Like, you out here just not doing that
You need to get you a publicist
You need to get you a good A&R
You need to make sure that you got people representing you well so you can get big out here
Yeah, I get you out hеre saying, “All glory to God”
But you know some of that glory is yours, you know what I’m talkin’ about, man?
Yeah, I gеt you sayin’ you’re out here tryin’ to like, serve your church
But what is it that you really want to do with your music, you know what I mean?
Like, that’s cool and everything, but what do you want to do with your music?
Yeah, I see all of that, like, fake humble stuff
But stop frontin’ for real, I know you got somethin’ cookin’ up
What you workin’ on?
Come on, for real, tell me what you workin’ on
[Verse 1]
I be keeping out the way because the world is burning
They prefer celebrities, oh, how the saints is turnin’
I thought Yahweh was the plug, a steady stream of joy and love
But being seen seems like the overarching goal and burden
Mirrors sellin’ out, we only lookin’ at what we do
What they do
Be shakin’ off conviction like it’s playful

[Refrain]
But be reminded, catch the vision
We know Jesus had a mission
It was blood there when He hung
He wasn’t blushin’ because all of the attention

[Verse 2]
Let me show you how we made this whole story ’bout us, but
It’s about, it’s about Jesus
I be starin’ at the text because the wisdom lackin’
I wonder why I battle with the need to be attractive
When only He who water-walkin’ should be doin’ all the talkin’
He the focal point that all the world need to adapt with
Now when I read Corinth’ I have a better understandin’
I’m glad your baptism ain’t somethin’ that I had a hand in

[Refrain]
Just be reminded, catch the vision
We know Jesus had a mission
It was blood there when He hung
He wasn’t blushin’ because all of the attention
It was blood there when He hung
He wasn’t blushin’ because all of the attention
Attention, ‘tention, ‘tention
He was not blushin’ because we was lookin’ at Him
Be reminded, catch the vision
We know Jesus had a mission
It was blood there when He hung
He wasn’t blushin’ because all of the attention
[Outro: Hezekiah Cunningham-Bey]
This is what we chose
We allowed Satan to tempt us
That being made in the image was not good enough
And we really, what we really needed was to be “God” ourselves
We chose a glory unto ourselves apart from a holy, living God
Convinced by that great serpent that God was withholding something greater than us
Choosing to trust the words of a created thing rather than the words of our great Creator
Our Creator, church
Who has lavished us with everything that we would ever need
They made a choice to ascribe glory to the things that weren’t in themselves meant to bring glory to God
