Lyrics

One Story Moses as a river child adopted by the Jews Buddha sitting under tree ~ enlightened points of view Jesus nailed upon the cross, rising from the dead Mohammed in the middle east ~ truth in what he said Yet we disresepct the teachings different from our own We only accept our family’s beliefs from years of old What if all the different faiths are all in one big play All the teachings, all beliefs, merely different shades What if we are all divine ~ connected here today All a part of one big love that holds our varied faces History is littered with the bloodshed in God’s name All because we need our truth to be the only way One story…one story…writing now in the river of time Inclusive love, inclusive mind One story…one story…unfolding now as the suffering calls A grander tale that loves us all What if every living thing is simply God in flesh? Every molecule and atom inextricably enmeshed What if our third planet now needs everyone to win? The only way to make it is for forgiveness to begin So many faiths are geographical -where we’re simply born Children simply follow what they’re taught and what they’re shown One story…one story…writing now in the river of time Inclusive love, inclusive mind One story…one story…unfolding now as the suffering calls A grander tale that loves us all Copyright Todd Omohundro 2007
