  • Look I was born like the rest, from Adam's curse ruined
    Straight born into death, with my back turned to Him
    The facts are confusing, I'm a wretched man
    But He took me, held my hand, and my death was banned
    He could have let my sins stay and my transgressions stand
    But I've been selected, elected, predestined man
    The question stands, look what I do to deserve
    To be blessed with His plan, made new, and reserved
    Nothing. I was like the rest, born attracted to death
    Nah we ain't said it, but its just what all our actions expressed
    'Cause although I ain't wanna bother with the Lord He spared me
    When I needed a Father, like orphan Annie
    He took me in, clothed me in His righteousness
    Fed me the fruit of the Spirit, now my life is His
    Its all grace, I don't deserve this relationship
    'Cause I ain't got nothing to give even my faith was a gift

    I don't deserve it, I'm worthless, but treated as perfect
    Why me? Why me? Why me? Why me?
    I sin more than I wanna, but my sins are a goner
    Why me? Why me? Why me? Why me?
    I was lost, but redeemed, then adopted and cleaned
    Why me? Why me? Why me? Why me?
    I was a scrub, but this God let me run with His squad
    Why me? Why me? Why me? Why me?

    You can ask the question, why our God would let men
    Take His Son, make Him a naked one just to crush Him
    We could all inquire, why a God this high up
    Would stoop so low to scoop a whole crew from holding fire
    We can pontificate, sipping on lemonade
    Chilling 'cause our bill of sin was long, but dawg it was payed
    Or we can shrug it off, not even bug at all
    Off the fact we should have been attached to that rugged cross
    That's just what it cost, I'm moved by what it cost
    Refuse to be like dudes unmoved with thuggish walks
    They like to disregard this, they like to diss the God that's
    Coming back never to fade to black like Mr. Carter
    And it's a shame 'cause the scripture is plain
    With you and me Yahweh got beef like 50 and Game
    We're shifty as Cane, only Jesus emptied His veins
    So now you only got one choice out of a list full of names

    I don't deserve it, I'm worthless, but treated as perfect
    Why me? Why me? Why me? Why me?
    I sin more than I wanna, but my sins are a goner
    Why me? Why me? Why me? Why me?
    I was lost, but redeemed, then adopted and cleaned
    Why me? Why me? Why me? Why me?
    I was a scrub, but this God let me run with His squad
    Why me? Why me? Why me? Why me?

    It's truly His grace that did it all, His righteous mercy
    Prepared beforehand for glory? Nah I ain't worthy
    He treated Christ like me and He gave Him death
    He's treating me like Christ man, He gave me breath
    I could have easily been one that feening for sin
    That's leading me in to death and catch heat in the end
    But He chose me, He showed me, He ordered my steps
    Man what a privilege to be one of the Lord's elect

    If it wasn't for you Trip, I wouldn't be tripping on this
    'Cause we'll get about as far as a car sitting on bricks
    'Cause why He did it was... Ah forget it
    I don't know why, I ain't shy I'll admit it
    So Trip, I don't even question it
    So Ill go on and rest in this for sin I was in union
    But now I'm free like a Russian is
    Now I trust in this [Jesus], now the lesson is
    Run hard for God to a beat like a percussion is

    I don't deserve it, I'm worthless, but treated as perfect
    Why me? Why me? Why me? Why me?
    I sin more than I wanna, but my sins are a goner
    Why me? Why me? Why me? Why me?
    I was lost, but redeemed, then adopted and cleaned
    Why me? Why me? Why me? Why me?
    I was a scrub, but this God let me run with His squad
    Why me? Why me? Why me? Why me?
