lyrics to:Time is a Sword

Chorus:
The One that creates was a treasure not shown
Manifestation was from love to be known
Opportunity is precious, time is a sword
You gotta know yourself, if you wanna know the Lord

Do you really wanna know where you come from?
Would you rather walk around deaf, blind, dumb?
I go way back before my birth
Promised to be a caretaker of the earth
So I be on my job, you be on yours
How you wakin' up if you love the snores
And you give it applause and think that because
You got a little scratch that your deeds won't catch
Back up to you, back up! ,what you need to do
Go to the shelf you can take it down read it too
Be it to ,be it true say I, say what?
I say so whatâs the delay huh?
Iâm a mirror just to flip it around
So much grime need to strip it on down
This sound you found a light introduction
Then I hand you over to habib for instruction

Chorus

Creations deeply rooted in mystery
Knowledge of the unseen pervades our history
Everything you see, every type of community
Rests upon the timeless, spaceless unity
All of mankind is already complete
As a middle people where heaven and earth meet
Beyond the beyond sent a spark of Itself
To animate you imparting the true wealth
Personality forms around the self thatâs original
To seek out and nourish the spirit becomes critical
Fusing the field between matter and spirit
Its in our genetics, and we're meant to hear it

Chorus
