Open The Gates Lyrics

Like david with his stone, knocked goliath of his throne
There's nothing i can't do, cause i believe in you
And this world of stress, obstacles and tests
I will do my best, and leave the next world for my rest.

You wanna dance with the devil, tread up on the revel
Livin like a rebel, wanna revel in the treble
While you jump another level, yeah you wanna get high
But dont wanna pay the price, wanna slice through the night
Sit back and feel nice, carry snakes around your neck
I reckon get born to the life where the mornin shines on
Got to keep your feet up on the ground
When the beat drops down, ain't no time to clown around
This ain't my city, this ain't my town
I'm a stranger in a strange land with a strange sound
Must've been found, been wonderin all around
Time travellin with my crown, buried deep under the ground.

Like david with his stone, knocked goliath of his throne
There's nothing i can't do, when i believe in you
And this world of stress, obstacles and tests
Oh i will do my best, and leave the next world to my rest.

Just like time, i'm on a windy road
Got to get where im going, got to get up and go
Heavy hands we stand, and go for an overflow
I ran the land, just like the ego
In search of the sea, and the sand
But the fire in the sky ran out, mount and scraped the sun
The only light is the one, that shines inside
As the time evaporates, yeah the time goes by
Days move on some come some go
All along i walk with flow
Nowhere i know, nothing at all
When the kingdom falls, still sing to god
Step back and let go of it all
Under attack i learn to stand tall
But the night time stalls, and the sun don't rise and fall.

Like david with his stone, knocked goliath of his throne
There's nothing i can't do, when i believe in you
And this world of stress, obstacles and tests
Oh i will do my best, and leave the next world for my rest.

(awesome and holy jam section)

Urge us to praise, praise, praise, praise, prays, prays...
Open up the gates...
Let my, run him in
Open, open, open, open, open, open, open...
Open up the gates, of righteousness
Ill be comin home...

(some applause)

Open, gates, of righteousness
Ill be comin home...
Open, gates, of righteousness
We'll be comin home...

(more applause)

Babylon your gonna go down down down
Babylon your gonna go down
I said i hear the words our higher man say
Babylon your gonna go down down down
Babylon your gonna go down

Said one bright morning when my work is over, im gonna fly away home
One bright morning when my work is over, im gonna fly away home
I said ill fly, away home, to zion
Fly away home.

I said ill fly away home to zion
Fly away home.
One day...
One day, one day this all will change, treat the people all the same
