What Do You Believe?
Grits Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Yes, it's like this...(the truth)
What do you believe? (is out there)
What do I believe? (if you're looking)
What does the mind conceive. (you will find)

In these last days, man craves signs and wonders,
So my heart speaks prophesy through sound and thunder,
Home tracks, lightning cracks backs of atheist blunder,
Do I really believe God cam in the form of a man?
Destroyed what he created just to raise it again, so we can be cleansed and stand before his throne in the end,
Give account for our obedience and keeping command,
So many have deeper needs they don't understand,
So many have questions unanswered, 'cause it's bigger than man - yo, (the truth is out there)
And the only answer given is rejected in doubt, 'cause too many living lives instead of Christ lived out. (the truth is out there)

So, what do you believe? (if you are seeking)
And what do I believe? (you will find)
What does the mind conceive. (open your mind)
Man, it gets so deep, (so deep)
It gets so deep. (what do you believe?)

(the truth is there)
What do you believe?

What do you believe?
What I you believe?
Man, it gets so deep, (deep)
It gets so deep, (deep)
What do you believe?
What I you believe?
Man, it gets so deep, (deep)
It gets so deep, (deep)
What do you believe?




What I you believe?

Everybody needs something to see
Something to feel
And something to be
Everybody needs something as proof
Something in hand
To know the truth

Livin' lavish like the biltmore
What the blood spilt for
A ship in harbor safe
But that ain't what its built for

Do all I can to help you get more
If you forgive my slight intrusion
I see this night is confusin
A constant fight with illusions

Shed a light on conclusions
What you desire is a way out
Day in and day out
Do not disturb signs so ill stay out

How long will you let the torture grasp you
I see spirits manifestin'
Blockin' blessings with the questions
That you hear me ask you

Keep it up so much will pass you
You can make it on a prayer
Yeah that's true
But barely getting by when you can do more

Why would you want to
Forgettin that the woods dry and the fires on you
Life's a hustle
Be prepared to rastle

It can be rough
But it don't have to
You can make it full of smiles
Something to laugh to

So pick and chose my message thick
So squeeze and watch it ooze
Make it a game to where your fears lose
Lets go

There's a way that seems right
In the heart of a man
And many angels of light
In disguise destroying man

So most chose to refuse
The absolute truth
Replace it with lies
Use ignorance as an excuse

It's hard to conceive
What the mind can't comprehend
And harder to believe
What the eyes can't understand

We look to theory philosophy and thought
For a sure foundation
In a belief we once sought
While the shadow of truth

Cast an image so clear
The closer it gets
We reject it out of fear
If we really wanted truth
We would give our lives for

I haven't believed in any religion since the age of 14, but I am still a man of belief, and this song still resonates within me. Just because I don't have common beliefs with the artists, doesn't mean I can't still find solace in this song. I still hold a place for this song in my heart.

@stevenanzures853

2021 and this song still hits like the first moment I heard it!

@Godsanointed08

I remember riding round listening to this song, 17 years old in my first car :) I will never forget this memory and this song will never get old for me. I also remember running,
