 +====== No More Jacked Up Folk ======
 +
 +Now there are some things\\
 +That I say in this song\\
 +That are pretty tough\\
 +But don’t get me wrong\\
 +\\
 +If some of what I say\\
 +Is true about you\\
 +Don’t feel condemned\\
 +Cause I’ve been there too\\
 +\\
 +My struggles with looks\\
 +Popularity and sex\\
 +Were once so bad\\
 +They made my life a wreck\\
 +\\
 +But out of his love\\
 +God rescued me\\
 +He transformed my life\\
 +And set me free\\
 +\\
 +Now that is not to say\\
 +I am perfect, at all\\
 +Cause every day or so\\
 +I take another fall\\
 +\\
 +I still find myself\\
 +In need of correction\\
 +But I know my life is headed\\
 +In the right direction\\
 +\\
 +So listen to my words\\
 +And don’t feel judged\\
 +I share them with you\\
 +From a heart of love\\
 +\\
 +You are my sisters and brothers\\
 +You don’t need to change\\
 +To be cool with me\\
 +I won’t think you’re strange\\
 +\\
 +But you’re too valuable\\
 +In God’s sight\\
 +For me to hold back words\\
 +That might change your life\\
 +\\
 +Just open your heart\\
 +You’ll feel something new\\
 +When you discover\\
 +God’s love for you\\
 +\\
 +In Jesus name, we don’t need no more jacked up folk.\\
 +In Jesus name, we don’t need no more jacked up folk.\\
 +\\
 +Let me start out this rap\\
 +With a verse for the ladies\\
 +The words are from my heart\\
 +And Jesus Christ will aid me\\
 +\\
 +To teach the truth in love\\
 +And transform your mind\\
 +So take your poor self images\\
 +And leave them all behind\\
 +\\
 +It makes me wanna cry\\
 +When I see how much time\\
 +You spend on your bodies\\
 +So that you can look fine\\
 +\\
 +Searching for attention\\
 +And affection from guys\\
 +Or popularity\\
 +So that you can be fly\\
 +\\
 +Sitting at the table\\
 +You’re hungry as can be\\
 +But instead of having dinner\\
 +You snack on celery\\
 +\\
 +Or salad or tofu\\
 +Or something fat free\\
 +Not because you wanna be healthy\\
 +But to shrink your body\\
 +\\
 +Forget about your size\\
 +Twelve, six or two\\
 +God didn’t mess up\\
 +When he created you\\
 +\\
 +Before you were born\\
 +He knew you by name\\
 +He saw your unformed body\\
 +And created your frame\\
 +\\
 +You are fearfully\\
 +And wonderfully made\\
 +In God’s own image\\
 +So never be afraid\\
 +\\
 +To look like you do\\
 +And be who you are\\
 +You’re a beautiful masterpiece\\
 +A shining star\\
 +\\
 +In Jesus name, we don’t need no more jacked up folk.\\
 +In Jesus name, we don’t need no more jacked up folk.\\
 +\\
 +Now that my sisters\\
 +Have heard the truth\\
 +Brothers, listen\\
