about

My mother always told me you have to choose a side, I didn’t understand what she meant when she told me as a kid. But now that I’m a few years older, looking at the way the world is, it’s clearer now more than it’s ever been.

lyrics

Mama said don't ever get down
Be prepared when the times get hard
You're the man of your house now
Don't you ever let that hate in your heart
just know you are a vessel
And a light in a place that's dark
How Sacred is a temple
If your demons don't depart
When we shopped through the windows
We couldn't ever see the sunshine
Through the cracks where the plants grow
Praying to the Lord for some good times
I should've listened to my kinfolk
When they told me that the world is frightening
I guess I'll go where the wind blows
And hope to know when the time is right to

Choose which side you're on (you better choose)
Tell me which side you're on (Hey! Would you tell me)
Choose which side you're on (what if I told ya)
There’s no side at all, yeah.

Yeah, yeah

Let me show you how to get down
In this life love is all we need
You might not understand now
Just know the truth will set you free
I can tell you haven't seen much
I can tell by the way you trust
In the things you haven't seen yet
But Just know there's never Enough to

Choose which side you're on
Tell me which side you're on
Do you know which side you're on
You better choose which side you're on

Draw a line in the sand now
That’s the only way to stand your ground
Never let them fears cast doubt
Intuition never follows the crowd
every dawn is a new day
To cease before the daylight fades
Let the oil burn through the midnight
For all to marvel the light that shines

All along they’ve all been plotting
From the tower as they watch us
Crushing grapes in all their vineyards
The times arrived for every prisoner
To cross the river out of Egypt
As the plague desolates the region,
Mark your doors, and close the steeples
Who will help the camel from its needle?

Choose which side you're on (you better choose)
Tell me which side you're on (Hey! Would you tell me)
Choose which side you're on (what if I told ya)
There’s no side at all, yeah.

Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
