Look unto the rock
Which ye were hewn from
And the hole of the pit
Which ye were digged
Ye who seek after righteousness
So says Isaiah 51:1
Can you dig it?
Don’t try to renege it
It’s the metaphorical art of speech
Trying to teach
So you can seek the meaning
Of your seat
Where your assets sit
Where your future generations are lit
Where your life lights paths
to everlasting life!

Look unto the rock you were cut from
And the hole of the pit
You love to dig
Ye who seek after righteousness
Look unto the rock,
Not the sand
Look for the back bone
Rocking Holy commands
And rock steady baby
Let’s call this song exactly what it is!
Be fruitful…..Multiply
Damn the lie!
Take control over this genocide troll
Who say they control
Your piece of the rock!
Ye who seek after righteousness
What is your quest?
Heaven?
Do you know where it is?
Man, you’ve been digging this rock
Hard, for quite some time
Always trying to run a line
To the hole of the pit
You come to dig planting seed,
So you can reap the deed
of a righteous afterglow!
