Lissen At Our Prayer Lyrics

by Dr. John

Mother earth, father sky
grandfather sun, grandmother moon
would the ancients prophesize
the way to scandalize
with their tales of certain doom
east north south and west
up 'a below and sacred sinner
the seven directions protect
the spirit never neglect us
the earth was created in seven days
man was conceived in six nights
thirteen steps of creation
take nine levels to evolve
round a centre we all revolve
twenty twelve is not the end
its time to begin again
who will benefit from a state of panic
the same negative energy
that currently rules the planet
mother earth, father sky
the great spirit prophesize
when a light shines in the sky
we all will see the way
lissen at our prayer
lissen at our prayer
lissen at those ol'
got so much to teach us all
taking us wherever it can
touching us every time we fall
lissen at your self
good feelings are really right
lissen at yourself when you listen to life
with ignorance of memories
and times we wasted
it make us cry and we start to lose
it give us the love and sex we tasted
get us deep inside the blues
lissen at yourself
good feelings are really right
lissen at yourself when you listen to life
lissen at the trees and the critters
they gon' lie before you be done
live your fantasies and realities
making love just as it come
lissen at yourself
good feelings are really right
lissen at yourself when you listen to life
lissen at our prayer
lissen at our prayer
