Na na na na na na na but I want to stay...
I feel the love, I feel the love
I feel the love, I feel the love
Na na na na na na na but I want to stay...
In the lion, there's a heart breaking by the fire
And in the fire, there's a flame that want to be the waterfall
In the water, there's a fish swimming by the lovers
And in the lover, there's a tear that gonna be the inferno
In the lion, there's a heart breaking by the fire
But in the fire, there's a heat enough to cage around your soul

I feel the love, I feel the love, I feel the power
It's getting weirder by the hour
The world is fucked up but I want to stay
I feel the love, I feel the love, I feel the power
I'm tough enough to be a flower
The world is fucked up but I want to stay

In the lion, I was holidaying as a vegan
I was eaten by a so sophisticated animal
We went walking by the slopes of Kiillamenanjaro
When the sparrow had to light a match to make the waterfall
In the water, there's a pride breaking by the fire
But in the fire, there's a heat to melt the cage around your soul

I feel the love, I feel the love, I feel the power
It's getting weirder by the hour
The world is fucked up but I want to stay
I feel the love, I feel the love, I feel the power
I'm tough enough to be a flower
The world is fucked up but I want to stay

I feel the love, I feel the love
I feel the love, I feel the love
Na na na na na na na but I want to stay...

    I think this song is describing an ayahuasca experience. Many people describe the love and power of an ayahausca experience and I believe you can partake in the experience in the kiliminjaro area. You meet deities and spirit animals while on it and I think he encountered a lion. 'the price to heating by the fire' could be the partaking in the sacrament and maybe even an offering that you would bring to the ceremony. Also he says he was holidaying as a vegan which is one of the things you have to do before you take ayahuasca. You must cleanse your body with a vegan diet. And of course It's about the love.
