Manifesto II Lyrics

Manifesto II - Nahko and Medicine for the People

What shall live

What shall die

What gave birth

What gave life

What is yours what is mine what is ours

 

Are these questions so senseless

Well who's gonna answer them

At the time when I really need to know

 

So let it carry you like the ocean

 

When you first learned how to float

 

So I went to Papa's grave and I

Burned him some sage

 

I said Thank you but I ain't ever gonna know ya

 

I said Thank you but I ain't ever gonna know ya

 

Ah ah ah oww oww ah ah ah oww oww

 

Oh oh oh ha ah oh oh oh ha ah

 

La da da da da da da daduh

La da hey hey la da da da da

 

La da da da

 

No potential has limit with

 

Ultimate forgiveness

You can try it on try it out for size

 

I lost touch with myself with my woman my health my God and my perception too

 

Well I will always be a part of that darkness although I'd say it's pretty equal to my light

 

I'm pretty far from knowin' anything

But I do know a couple things

What I want and how I'm gonna get it

 

What I want and how I'm gonna get it

(That's f**kin' right)

 

Ah ah ah oww oww ah ah ah oww oww

 

Oh oh oh ha ah oh oh oh ha ah

 

La da da da da da da daduh

La da hey hey la da da da da

La da da da

 

Destiny you can't control

That's cool

I work better alone

Gimme some space gimme some good air to breathe

 

I s'pose that's what we all want

Our own slice to go off on

And believe

Whatever the f**k you wanna

 

Well I will never know all of the answers although

I'd never want to know anyway

 

'Cause I remember when Grandma died she had no tears in her eyes

She was laughin' and raisin' hell

 

Yeah she was laughin' and raisin' hell

(F**k yeah she was)

 

Ah ah ah oww oww ah ah ah oww oww

 

Oh oh oh ha ah oh oh oh ha ah

 

La da da da da da da daduh

La da hey hey la da da da da

La da da da (hey)

 

There's a river in the wind

 

I've floated it before

 

There's a sliver in your grin

 

I know who it is for

And there is magic in the skin of the woman I adore

 

Know each other to the core

 

So thankful

 

And there are four tides in a sea

There are cosmic copies

They are built like you and me

So crazy

 

Don't be afraid to make mistakes

 

Being human can be great

No matter what is on your plate

 

Be grateful

 

And I am ready for the war

 

Maybe it's comin'

It's not for sure

 

But it has come before

 

So maybe

 

We can end all this pursuit

 

Find contentment in the truth

 

Find out what's gonna work for you

 

And try it out out out

 

Ah oh Ah oh

Try it out

 

Ah oh Ah oh

 

Ooh ooh oooh da da Ooh ooh oooh da da

 

Da duh da duh da buh ba ba ba da

Da duh da duh do da do do do do

 

 

Da da da da da
