Through the ages we have lived and died
Kings make war and sages prophescied
Somewhere between the first creation and tonight
Was a million incarnations of me myself and I

I was a savior in another life
With a white robe flowing in the morning light
I walked with angels in my darkest plight
In the desert for forty days and forty nights

I was a tyrant with an angry tongue
Who neglected the old and enslaved the young
It was quite when I brought the air into my lungs
And sang the very first song every sung

I'm carrying, the memory, of these things, inside of me
I greet them with humility
They're with me for eternity

I'm telling you, with sincerity
In what you do and what you be
Is gona follow you, like you follow me
And be with you for eternity

I was a woman swollen full with child
I was a healer, Shaman in the wild
I was the prosecutor, I was put on trial
I put forth the accusation, I made a denial

I drank the blood of Jesus from a wooden cup
I ate a bit of heaven then I spit it up
I caught my brother lying and I called his bluff
I led the sheep to slaughter once his time was up

Twice I brought the masses down, to their knees
One time with love, the next time with greed
My childhood aspirations got the best of me
My _______ became the worlds destiny

I'm carrying, the memory, of these things, inside of me
I greet them with humility
They're with me for eternity

I'm telling you, with sincerity
In what you do and what you be
Is gona follow you, like they follow me
And be with you for eternity

I was a man with pointer on the trigger
I brought the temple down and rebuilt it with one finger
I was the first singer, to lullaby the lord to sleep in the manger
I was the stranger on the road to Damascus,
Saying turn your eyes to God and you shall receive the answers
Turn your eyes to God and receive the answers
Turn your eyes to God

I'm carrying, the memory, of these things, inside of me
I greet them with humility
They're with me for eternity

I'm telling you, with sincerity
In what you do and what you be
Is gona follow you, like they follow me
And be with you for eternity

It's going to be with you for eternity
