I bring pass over to you, my heart does long to be bleu (freedom), the heart of always comes true, when faith is written on you. But so many, they don't really, think that G_ah_d (utterance of heavenly transmission) will bring, the heart that rings.  And we are satisfied, to long for better skies, rather than trusting all the ones who came before us.  It's time of prophecy, the living of all the devoted seas (blue tallit), and what could bring us home, we don't look at this loom (weaving of light and dark).  It's a covering, the prayer cloth that helps us discover, that we are housing a truth, and it's called our soul.  There is wisdom if we trust our heart's breath, the sanctity of loving all that is truth.  But who can you depend on, when so many think they know lawns (green grass the home of paradise) and you don't know which way to turn?  There's only one place, that speaks volumes, it's the prayer you turn to, that leads you true.  Look at your heart inside, not at your pride outside, but bring the soul, that knows, the way to go.  And when we follow you and me, and gift all, to the leaves (tree of life, our relatives who we share life with), then we know where we must go, on it's course of time.  Let's not be blind any more, but instead let's find vision of a stare, where our hearts show us the way, with good old fashion love in the air.  And it's where we need find, the song that leads us this time, to unite our hearts, to fight for broken hearts.  There is wind in the clouds.  There is flowing of the blood, but there is not wisdom that grows, with all the lies.  Instead, let's hold each others hands, and feed all who do command, the soul of wisdom, the soul of pride (faith and humbleness), that offers us the ride.  It's heaven inside. It's the grains of delight (abundance for all).  It's where G_ad_d promises us paradise.  Give your embrace to the world.  Feed the homeless and the full.  Open your hearts and give it all away.  Brotherhood comes with a price, and we'd better think twice, because only love will allow us to survive.  We are a hide (holy temple which resides a soul), the Rainbow Tribe.
