Lecrae - Good, Bad, Ugly Lyrics

Come on everybody sit down
People wanna act like they are in the know
Well I'm here to wipe off your smile
And tell you what's the word around town
I know you don't wanna hear the truth
I know you hate the fact that I actually have the proof
But I just need you to believe
I'm talking the good, the bad, the ugly

[Verse 1:]
Remember back in '02
When I was in school and actin' a fool
My soul got saved, my debt had been paid
But still I kept running off with my crew
Sex on my brain, and death in my veins
Had a main thing, we stayed up 'til 2 (Smokin'!)
Waking and thinking we naked, my body was loving it
Soul was hating it, man
Time and time after time, our bodies were close
The girl was so fine
Heard a heart beat that wasn't hers or mine
The miracle of life had started inside
Ignored the warning signs
Suppressed that truth I felt inside
I was just having fun with this, I'm too young for this
I'm thinking me, myself, and I
Should I, sacrifice this life to keep my vanity and live nice?
And she love and trust me so much that whatever I say, she'd probably oblige
But I was too selfish with my time
Scared my dreams were not gonna survive
So I dropped her off at that clinic
That day, a part of us died


[Verse 2:]
I remember back in the day
I was barely in the first grade
Got teeth missing, watching Tom & Jerry
Tryna go outside so I could play
I was told to watch out for strangers
Keep my eyes peeled for danger
Folks workin' late, I had a babysitter
I ain't 'bout to sit here and name her
I was almost 8, when she came in late
Woke me up with a game to play
Did a few things that's hard to say
Told me to keep that secret safe
How a young boy supposed to deal?
I'm tryna act like it ain't real
Had my innocence just stripped from me
And I still don't know how to feel
And I'm wondering how to address it
Can't tell my family, too messy
So I just embrace it, it's hard to face it
I'm too ashamed to confess it
So I kept it in and ain't speak
Didn't think, it hit me so deep
So into it, I got promiscuous
And only God can help me get free
But I've been forgiven, my Savior risen
I'm out the prison, I know that
I got the power to say no to all of my struggles
God will control that
Every time we slip and we fall
Gotta get back up and fight on
We are not defined by our past
The future look bright, I see the light on

  29. Christian Gentry

    We all struggle. We have been wounded, hurt, torn, broken or silenced and life can be painful. So many of us struggle in silence, afraid to voice how they feel and feel their wounds will never heal. We have all been broken, been through terrible experiences. In the end though, the Lord is risen and there is hope to all who hurt. One day, pain will die but until then, we should show compassion and love to those who struggle and to those who don't show their struggle.

  46. Chizitelu Okoli

    This song plays a massive role in my healing process. I was scared of it at first because I couldn't fathom was going on in my mind whenever I listened to it. God used it to literally bash into a room in my mind I promised never to enter. Thank you Lecrae for letting God use you. It's so wonderful to finally realize and keep realizing that all things work for the GOOD of those who love the Lord and are called by Him

  47. Veni Vidi Amavi

    *this.....America especially needs to hear this. Just thinking of the 9 month abortion being passed in NY...does God help a baby-murdering nation? Because that's what we always claim He is, how the tables have turned*

  48. Karen Klo

  52. Jericho Herrman

    Love this song

  53. Mimi Almendarez

    The babysitter that did that to Lecrea should be very ashamed of herself. Because she just raped him like that. And he was a child. Man, i would've told my parents about this "woman" but I know the reasons why Lecrea didn't tell anyone, in fact, I would've told the police. Even though, everyone says that they really like this song. I like it this song as well. But i can totally relate because well this happened when I was 12. I almost got raped by my own boyfriend. And I know no one will read this. But I know the fear it gives you to tell someone. I've been raped or even nearly raped. I just wanted to say my peace. Thank you.

  54. swainoh sixfoe

    I remember telling my moms that i was molested i was 23 years when i came out it felt good like it was a big weight off my shoulder i advise people to come out.

  73. andy powell

  74. Jaimin Khar

    And truly last thing globalist only have 1 piece of evidence that says the Earth is a globe on the other hand those who are of the persuasion that the Earth is flat have overwhelming abundant evidence the Bible would say running over evidence that the Earth is flat may I point out the events that took place in the Battle of Joshua when Joshua commanded that the sun stand still and that the Moon stand still in the valley of ajilon ask yourself how did that happen did the Earth stopped spinning 1000 miles an hour or did the sun stop rotating around the Flat Earth think about that if the Earth stopped spinning 1000 miles an hour instantly what Whitaker tsunamis earthquakes volcanic eruptions basically this destruction of the Earth As We Know but God himself said Sun stand still Moon stand still he did not say Earth stop spinning if you believe in the scripture you must believe that God knows what he's talking about and that's just one shred of evidence there are over 200 verses that speak or tell us something about the design of God's creation and within these descriptions it is undeniable that the Earth is flat and immovable it does not spin it does not rotate everything rotates spins around us that's the end of my rant God many blessings sir

  75. Jaimin Khar

    You might laugh but if you do yourself a favor by pressing the link below you might not laugh anymore


  76. Jaimin Khar

    One last thing I'd like to say is have you thought about making a song about creation there's a whole book about creation throughout the Bible references of creation are echoed many many times you might think I'm crazy but the Bible tells us that the Earth is flat that it is unbelievable you might hear from some that say the Earth hangs on nothing but I can say the building that I'm in right now hangs on nothing because it is founded upon its foundation the Bible says the Earth is founded upon its pillars the Earth is immovable the Bible says that the Earth was created in 7 Days science tells us that the Earth was created billions and billions of years ago science tells us that first the sun was created and the Stars the Bible tells us that the sun in the moon were created on the third day of creation science tells us that the Earth was created after the Sun there is a big problem with science and with what scripture says the firmament is something that you should look into the vaulted Dome the Bible also refers to this firmament as a molten Looking Glass maybe it's something that you should look into if you heard of Rob skiba listen to what he has to say blessings to you and yours

  77. Jaimin Khar

    Mr. Lecrae I am a big fan of yours but one of the things that really bugs me sir is I want to share you're beautiful inspiring music with others copyright restriction laws don't allow you to share your music which I don't know but it seems to me that your music is sort of like gospel in music but how come you don't allow people to share it on platforms like Facebook is there any way that you can give me the right to share it I'm not going to say it's mine I just want to share your music with others

  88. sammy arrindall

    tears come to eyes every time i replay the part where he talked about his innocents was taken away from him when he was younger and was ashamed to tell his family... that touches my soul because as a young child my cousin try to molested me in my sleep and i would wake up feeling uncomfortable and i will hit him... till this day i don't know if he raped me in my sleep or what went on before i woke up... i was so scared to tell anyone because i didn't think they would believe me because my family were all alcoholics and afraid of the truth. i had sooo much hate built up against them all..... seeking help from the lord really helps me get by everyday.
