Of The Earth (feat. Nate Asonius)

from by Galileo



We both have to live together on this earth
so why don't we understand that we
struggle with the same things?


You and me, we are both the same.
We are of the earth.
We both the same. Come on, say it with me.
Of the earth.

how long shall i cry for help
and you will not hear?
why do you make me see
he made my feet like the feet of a wolf
and set me secure on the heights.
he trains my paws for war
so that my arms can bend a bow of bronze

Life is like flashing pictures, this position’s different, posing like some action figures,
I begin to get it, thinking how I’m acting different, my resentments present, world is
getting actually heavy, it’s getting actually heavy, ugh…but everybody’s facing
that, racing thoughts keep racing back, erasing thoughts that fade to black, I’m
chasing off the crazy path, I’m Nathan, often hate it that, it’s way too often hated
that, it’s faded thoughts that made it back...but we’re all the same people, we’ve all
had open doors but never made it through the peep hole, I’m tired I don’t know if I
can hold anymore, and my eyes got more bags than a grocery store, see nobody
chose their fate we’re not supposed to be poor, good thing I value things I keep so
close to core, it approached me before, but I coasted and I chose not to detour when
my thoughts go on tour, when I’m crossing it’s more than love…..

You and me, we are both the same.
We are of the earth.
We both the same. Come on, say it with me.
Of the earth.

he bowed the heavens and came down
thick darkness was under his feet, smoke
went up from his nostrils, and devouring fire
his breath--thundered in the heavens!
hailstones and coals of fire
as he sent out his arrows and
scattered them. he flashed forth
lightning and routed them.
i cried, "I am
only of the earth!"

when looking at reflections, mirrors speak more words than a teacher that’s
correcting, just look into your eyes at all the memories collected, and I positively bet
it’s way much better than expected, we struggle that’s life, we’re happy, it’s nice,
we’re laughing, it’s right, we have to unite, a smile is contagious and I’m tryna
spread it, see life will take its path and you just have to let it, as you’re walking
down the street and all you see is faces, double knotted laces shoe to pavement,
rocking all the latest, strive for greatness, stump debaters, be yourself, don’t worry
much, don’t mind what’s in your box because I’ll trade you at lunch, like when we
were kids, we dreamt to my astonishment, as big as a planet and then flew there on
a rocket ship, everyone was equal and we didn’t have to ponder it, so realize it’s of
all this, earth…

You and me, we are both the same.
We are of the earth.
We both the same. Come on, say it with me.
Of the earth.

Were you angry with the rivers?
was your wrath against the streams?
Did you rage against the sea
when you rode your horses
your chariots to victory?
You uncovered your bow,
you called for many arrows.
You split the earth with many rivers
the mountains saw you and writhed.
Torrents of water swept by
and the deep roared roared my name
lifted its waves on high.
Sun and moon stood still in the heavens
at the glint of your flying arrows,
lightning of your flashing spear.
In wrath you strode through the earth.
