03. The Slam

Welcome To Diverse City
by TobyMac


Godís in the spot you can like it or not
So rip the knob off the volume when you give this a shot
And raise your hands as the slam starts to thicken the plot
Openiní eyes to the lies of the enemiesí lot
So run like the wind from the sin of your past
Keep your eyes on the prize when they put you on blast
Itís the Christ on the cross, itís humanityís shot
Itís a worldwide call to everything that weíre not

This is the slam, this is the one
This is the slam, this is the one

This is the slam, this is the one
We gonna do it like it ainít been done before
This is the slam, this is the one
We gonna bring it like it ainít been brung
This is the slam, this is the one
We gonna do it like it ainít been done before
This is the slam this is the one
We gonna spring you like you ainít been sprung

They came from the cities and towns all around
To see the longhaired preacher from the desert get down
Waist high in water, never short on words, he said
Repent, the kingdom of heaven can be yours
But he stopped in the middle of his words and dropped
Down to his knees and said, behold the Lamb of God
Heís the one, the slam, donít you people understand?
Youíre staring at the son, Godís reaching out his hand

The father slammed it like Shaq
For Latinos and Blacks
Packiní them straps
And Caucasians hooked on Ecstasy and the crack
Stacked the sins of this world to his body
And conquered evil and hell
Then snatched the keys of death in one breath and unlocked the cell
He rose on the third
Iím telliní you partner, its actual fact
Just like TOBYMAC and Boney Soprano up on this track
We slam dunkiní and keep it jumpiní like jumper cables
And keep the crowd rowdy like Jesus tossiní them temple tables
