We come from the fire
Livin' in the fire
Go back to the fire
Turn the world around
We come from the water
Livin' in the water
Go back to the water
Turn the world around
We come from the mountain
Livin' on the mountain
Go back to the mountain
Turn the world around
Oh, oh so is life
Oh, oh so is life
Oh, oh so is life
Oh, oh so is life
Do you know who I am
Do I know who you are
See we one another clearly
Do we know who we are
Oh, oh so is life
A ba tee wah ha so is life
Oh, oh so is life
A ba tee wah ha so is life
Water make the river
River wash the mountain
Fire make the sunlight
Turn the world around
Heart is of the river
Body is the mountain
Spirit is the sunlight
Turn the world around
We are of the spirit
Truly of the spirit
Only can the spirit
Turn the world around
We are of the spirit
Truly of the spirit
Only can the spirit
Turn the world around
Do you know who I am
Do I know who you are
See we one another clearly
Do we know who we are
Oh, oh so is life
A ba tee wah ha so is life
Oh, oh so is life
A ba tee wah ha so is life
