lyrics

i can see you think him irresponsible
but you don't know how it is to be
born wide awake in a world still sleeping
a hapless drifter from a distant long-lost starstruck galaxy
when your mind is born open and your soul can really see
the trials that they'll force on you to try and keep you down
must not keep you from your sacred destiny
Moses on the mountain talking to the greenery
opened as a channel for the One
born to lead his people out of slavery
he said "Pharaoh let 'em go!"
by faith and word Thy will be done
when your mind is blown open and your soul begins to see
the trials that'll they'll force on you to try and keep you down
will not keep you from your sacred destiny

waiting for the words to come down

there's Moses on the streetcorner singing to the sky
commuters shy away from those truth-filled eyes
in a world without spirit we got shamans on the dole
saviors in the nuthouse all the saints out on parole
not for too much longer
the light deep inside us is getting stronger

waiting for the Word to come down

that's me on the park bench just feeding the birds
can't be distracted by the concerns of the greater herd
there's too many things inside of me
won't fit into letters, lines and boxes and words
and all the indoor things they want me to do when i'm a bird
because when your mind becomes open
and your soul can finally see
the illusions you were living for no longer keep you down
won't keep you from the call
can't keep you from the Word
can not keep you from your sacred destiny
