Verse 1:
Satan, the world’s best liar and ultimate deceiver
He poisons the minds of all mankind and all of us fellow believers
His words are sharp like knives and dangerous as the sharpest cleaver
We try to run away but he always seems to catch us like a wide receiver
Our aiming to avoid him is a constant pattern of failure and digression
We rely on ourselves and try to find the right way but it is always a misdirection
Our discouragement weights us down with every instance of lack of perfection
What we need to do is dial into the connection of the beautiful resurrection
Jesus paid the ultimate price for us and made a costly transaction
He gave up his whole self to us, not just a part of him or measly fraction
He put on his surgical gloves and went to seek out our sin and make a careful extraction
He had his eyes on the prize, 20/20, no distractions
Though Satan still tries to tempt us with his constant flirtation
We must trust in the power of Christ and his beautiful salvation
T-t-t-temptation flowing in our veins
Don’t take in upon yourself trust the king who reigns
T-temptation Satan’s favorite weapon
Through Christ stay strong, your reward is in heaven
Verse 2:
Remember that awesome moment with God and hold onto that sensation
Use it as motivation to fight against Satan and sin’s worldwide inflation
Don’t rest easy or come victim to Satan’s subtle sedation
Keep your eyes on Christ for he is our true sense of liberation
Stay tuned to the word of God and don’t fall victim to another mirage
Don’t give yourself up to Satan’s constant attack and sabotage
He may look innocent but he’s dressed in his vegetative camouflage
Even though we think he looks cute and innocent like your prom date’s corsage
Verse 3:
You can’t master the fight against sin just cause of some course you took in college
You may have gained book smarts but it doesn’t always relate to the needed street knowledge
You may think you’re ready for battle but this is a story of fiction
You must look to Christ and at his perfect depiction, of life
To start to conquer sin you must take a place of humble submission
You need to examine yourself and find the prescription to your heart condition
You need to align your life to Christ and follow his rendition
For his is the perfect example of a servant in a leadership position
Now he freed us from the bondage of sin with his suffering and gruesome affliction
We no longer have to be held down by our sinful habits and horrible addictions
Finding pride in Christ’s death may seem like a contradiction
But we find true victory and freedom in his crucifixion
