Lyrics

Good God – Hit it~!

I will die the same death as Adolf Hitler and Nelson Mandela
I will die the same death as Martin Luther King
Preacher and protest-ant
I will die the same death as Lee Harvey Oswald
The most hated of them all.

But where my soul goes
no one knows

I will not die the same death as John Lennon
I will not die the same death as the Soviet Union
I will not die the same death as a Kennedy son
I will not die looking for the smoking gun
I will not die with a frown on my face
I will not die like any human from the race

You will die even if you are Jesus’s friend
You will die even if you have never sinned
You will die if everything you touch turns to gold
You will die be you young, be you old

We cannot live like the Dali Lama
We cannot live like presidents or kings

But where our soul goes
so their soul goes
But where our soul goes
nobody nobody knows

Chill out a minute

In what book reads the actual word of God?
In where can we find the ancient message once told?
In what time is our cause the most just?
When every other person is just like us

Therefore:
I will live without my father’s fears
I will live like every moment is precious and dear
I will live like the universe was made for me
I will live in the present, with the clave as my key

But where my soul goes
So your soul goes
But where my soul goes
So goes the ages of old

Bridge:
No Christian has the answer
No Muslim has the answer
No Buddha, lamas, or atheists has the answer
No Taoists or Zoro-as-trians has the answer,
No Hindus, Jews, and Shintos, have the answer,
No Freaks, no Sikhs, no sages on a mountain peak
No old crones and pagan stones
have the answer!

Breakdown:
All written words of God were written by men
All written words of God were written by women
All written words of God were written by men
God ain’t got no pen!

My key is the clave
The rhythm is my guide
The path of the spirit
Will lead me when I die
My key is the clave
The rhythm is my guide
The path of the spirit
Will lead me when I die.
