lyrics

Interfaith Dialogue

Verse 1
[Pierce]
listen now I'm a tell you bout my spirituality
just sit so you can listen
bout this miracle that happened to me
I seen God in my sleep
she was a strong black woman
brown locks dropped down to her feet
she said it's not about the Christians
or the Muslims or the Jews or
anybody except you you dig
from the east Zhuangzi
Confucius was my people
and Hinduism Siddhartha I like to speak to
In every culture I swear the Devil like a vulture
instead of speaking to me he got yall worshiping a sculpture
or scripture that helps you get a picture of my plan but
most of them was written by a man
maybe now you understand the many contradictions
my children who use religion to create division
is really trippin give unconditional love without provision
you need to listen to your momma wisdom 
but first you gotta listen

Chorus 1
[Trice]
you gotta feel it in your soul
you gotta feel it in your soul now
you gotta feel it in your soul

[Pierce]
where you gotta feel it talk to em now

[Trice]
and if you feel it in your soul
you let your body loose control now
you gotta feel it in your soul
you gotta feel it in your soul

[Pierce]
talk to em now
we need an interfaith dialogue
an interfaith dialogue
come on

Verse 2
[Pierce]
back to my dream about this African queen
she took me to places I could never describe
she had eyes like fire my only desire
was to fall at her feet and expire
but she required me to see so I could be
experience what free feels like so i could breathe
and speak to your beliefs
she said they used to call me Ra now they call me Allah
Rastafari they call me Selassie I or Jah
some call me Christ or maybe the Most High
I been Jehovah Yahweh Messiah The Light
to the Yoruba I manifest through the Orishas
they speak through ancestors when they want to reach us
but listen
i got an alias depending on your various
culture community language or other area
so stop comparing us and try uniting
if God is everything then love God and stop fighting

Chorus 2
[Trice]
you gotta feel it in your soul

[Pierce]
talk to em now

[Trice]
you gotta feel it in your soul
you gotta feel it in your soul now
and if you feel it in your soul
you got to let your body loose control
you gotta feel it in your soul
you gotta feel it in your soul

[Pierce]
you got to feel it in your
you got to feel it in your soul
