lyrics

Orijin:
A thousand likes. How much love does that amount to?
Reception’s clear but could you hear the world around you?
child let me remind you I'm here, to give you counsel and care
even at times it appears I'm not about to
I see you hit the back button to your old ways,
My love won't change, I'm still your home page
I'm busy working through your circumstance to grow faith
Even when it feels like a slow pace

Dru Bex:
I feel like my connection started slowin’ up
Searching in my browser, nothing’s showin’ up
But somehow I still get Twitter and IG
So that’s where I begin to find my ID
First thing in the morning, I’m on Facebook
Bible on my dresser - that’s a great book
But lately when I read it, there’s a disconnect
So I gotta ask you, Lord, is this a test?
‘Cause I’ve been on my grind, on my grind, on my grind
I know I need your Word but ain’t putting in time
I got all this drive, trynna take it to the bank
But how far will I get if I don’t ever fill the tank?
Not very far
Praying but I got one eye open like Fetty Wap
Say that I trust you, same time I’m like, “whatever, God”
Sometimes I feel like it takes too long to get response
But I stay keeping this earpiece hooked up to my cephalon

JRH:
Lord, why do you have me on dial-up?
I really need a friend that I can call up
You’re the one I lean on
You’re the one I lean on
You’re the one I lean on
Why does it feel like you have me on dial-up?

You got me on dial-up
You got me on dial-up
Got me on dial-up
(x4)

Orijin:
I’m living linkedin to the main source
Out of the dark, your powerful spark rerouted my heart
I can't fathom the cost that you paid for. How could I crave more?
When competition pitch a contract trynna make me a slave
How I be acting like I ain’t sure who my sole provider is
On that share everything plan: He’s mine I am His
His love is secure, his peace with me
Grace covers it all - no need to delete history
Hit my knees swiftly. See that fruit of the vine bursting
With juice and I’m yet I’m thirsting
Googly eyes searching for you but my pride’s lurking, signal is getting jammed
Memory falls short, but you've provided the ram (RAM)
I standby til my heart and mind reboot
You know I’ma sin (MSN), but say I seek you (ICQ)
God, your love is pure. I'm nothing apart from your motherboard
Nothing’s more precious than us connecting on one accord, Lord

JRH:
Lord, why do you have me on dial-up?
I really need a friend that I can call up
You’re the one I lean on
You’re the one I lean on
You’re the one I lean on
Why does it feel like you have me on dial-up?

You got me on dial-up
You got me on dial-up
Got me on dial-up
(x4)
