You Gotta Know

Spelled in the clouds of thundering rain
Only cry out out in pure joy or shame
Incognito heavenly being
Is there something there I’m not seeing  
Father forgive me, OMG
I didn’t see your Deity Emoji
Hey, hey God I gotta see an ID
 
Screamin’ down the tracks across the great wide plains
Soundin’ louder than the Peace Train
Verily, verily, I say unto you brother  
It’s going in one ear and out the other
Scrawled on walls of ghetto bricks
Rage boils slow, paint drys quick
On palettes of pain

You gotta know
You gotta know
You gotta know God’s name
Before you take it in vain

Sketched in the sand along Crystal Beach
Before the tempest and her tide can reach
Behind your eyes, burn it in your brain
Three in one, one in the same
Dream out loud, midnight cracks
The Shroud of Turin’s face shouts back
Then bursts out in flames

You gotta know  
You gotta know
You gotta know God’s name
Before you take it in vain

On a wall above the pulpit in a golden frame
Ancient of Days, Elohim
I Am, I Am, again and again…
Can I hear an Amen ?
