Call it the fire beneath the final moment
When I only got desires to reach the lion roman
Through this villainous species

from Mr. J. Medeiros – Brutus Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The heat of hell, the temperature of temptation?

At this moment I reach for the Lion.

Lion: Often a symbol of Jesus

A lion also symbolizes:
Courage
Power
Royalty
Dignity
Authority
Dominion
Justice
Wisdom

Ferocity

There is a lion stalking the villains…

Could simply mean that at the height of ones temptation to do something that they do not want to do, they find strength in belief, strength when reaching for those things that bring justice, wisdom, and courage in their lives.
