John Reuben – Secular Music Lyrics

We turned these absurdities into art
Every industry’s got an apple cart
But these were the days when distribution meant
The physical packages had to be boxed sealed and shipped
So I got a label and then got labeled
But I’m grateful cause that label made it capable to travel the globe
And talk to the faithful
Never know where a song might take you
[Chorus]
And I was always there for you
When you couldn’t listen to
Secular music
Secular music
And I would play your youth group
The alternative to
Secular music
Secular music
[Verse 2]
Well I never knew a prophet who was in style
Dress it up and rebrand the profile
And I never knew an emcee who could take the stage
Throw their hands up towards the heavens and not take the praise
And if the cost of being relevant is two-faced
Maybe stop taking money out the offering plate
Can’t complain about them tables that need to be turned
If them same tables done sold your merch
Well from the Gospel came the [?] introduced us to
And ever since we’ve been trying to figure out our point of view with
Popular music
Popular music
Okay, white boy, you can make ’em laugh and maybe
Earn a spot as the opening act
You could spend your whole career trying to prove you’re not whack
For a pat on the back – not bad for Christian rap
[Refrain]
I’m the greatest Christian rapper ever
There I said it
I said it
I’m the greatest Christian rapper ever
There I said it
I said it
I’m the greatest Christian rapper ever
There I said it
Not to be confused with the
Greatest rapper who happens to be a Christian
Cause there’s too many of them to win [Refrain]
Greatest Christian rapper ever
There I said it
I said it
I’m the greatest Christian rapper ever
There I said it
I said it
[Chorus]
And I was always there for you
When you couldn’t listen to
Secular music
Secular music
And I would play your youth group
The alternative to
Secular music
Secular music
[Verse 1]
Sent away for pre-date[?] to be raised by the fellowship
I guess it takes a village willing to live off the grid
Lost on me [?] pop culture reference
Well I had no choice but to be alternative
Always had a birds-eye view from the pew
Always knew it’s an odd place
To try and make your power moves
How you gonna front when the church nursery’s your green room
And the set time’s early cause the kids got curfews?
