Haile Selassie Lyrics

Pilgrim across the water
We are the same, brother
Hitchhiking back to Zion
Holding our tears as we flip the album
What if this leads to ruin?
You got a soul, use it
All this despair forgiven
Rolling away on a wheel of sevens
Seems like the Queen of Sheba
Voice through a blown speaker
One drop and bubbling Leslie
Calling me home like Haile Selassie

Pilgrim beside the fire
Its been a long winter
We got a lot in common
Cover our heads as they split the atom
All of our days are numbered
I take in some comfort in knowing the wave has crested
Knowing I don't have to be an exception
Children they fill the bleachers
One is the next Caesar
Keep all their minds collected
Until it comes
Until it comes
Hide the Omega day
In plain sight
Too good to be true

I've seen, I've seen, I've seen stranger things, man
I've seen, I've seen that tree of smoke
I've seen, I've seen, I've seen stranger things happen
Happen before Pilgrim upon the mountain
Bare foot and still climbing
Filling the book of hours
Day after day in the filth and squalor
We are the chosen people
Safe from the next evil
One Love! Magnetic memory
Reel after reel, spinning within me
I had the wildest dream last night
I was swimming with you in that Cenote the Heavens made with black fire
Just woke up too soon

I've seen, I've seen, I've seen stranger things, man
I've seen, I've seen that tree of smoke
I've seen, I've seen, I've seen stranger things happen
Happen before

I've seen, I've seen, I've seen stranger things, man
I've seen, I've seen that tree of smoke
I've seen, I've seen, I've seen stranger things happen
Happen before
