[Intro]
Ingonyama nengw' enamabala
Ingonyama nengw' enamabala
Ingonyama nengw' enamabala
Ingonyama nengw' enamabala

[Verse 1: J. Monty]
I can't see what's in front of me
Just a cloud and a bunch of steam
And a bunch of trees
I can never see me running free
I feel like something's trying to punish me
But I don't wanna leave
(Oh, oh, iyo) I broke bread with the vultures
[?] to the [?]
Why am I so cursed
(Oh, oh, iyo) I wonder if I got shot in the throat would my knees hit the floor first
Would I have enough breath in my lungs to repent and speak to the Lion of the tribe of Judah
Though they tell me He's alive, I pay no mind cause it's easier for me to put a rifle to ya
Don't sympathize
They tell me there's a better way
But that's a song I would never play
I can never play
Cause I can't afford the CD
Plus they just don't know what it's like to be me

(Ubukhosi bo khokho we ndodana ye sizwe sonke)

[Verse 2: J. Monty & Ryan Taylor]
But if you believe what you never see
Maybe you'll see what you never know
How will you ever know
It's on the end of a telescope
If you don't ever try to let it go
Follow the metronome
(Oh, oh, iyo) If you ever go and get lost it prolly just means you're heading home
(Oh, oh, iyo) Just for the voice on the megaphone
It gets louder, heaven knows all you gotta do is have Him

[Hook: Ryan Taylor]
(Hela hm mamela, hela hm mamela
Hela hm mamela, hela hm mamela)
He lives in you (hela hm mamela, hela)
He lives in me (hela hm mamela, hela)
He watches over (hela hm mamela, hela)
Everything we see (hela hm mamela, hela)
Into the waters (hela hm mamela, hela)
Into the truth (hela hm mamela, hela)
In your reflection (hela hm mamela)
He lives in you

[Verse 3: J. Monty]
Yeah I hear what you saying (oh, oh, iyo, iyo mamela oh, oh, iyo)
But you just don't understand
(Oh, oh, iyo, iyo mamela oh, oh, iyo) I can't escape the enemy unless I replace my memories with the mind of another man
And it's not the eyes that don't believe in God
Who tells the sky when it's allowed to rain
But tell me how an I find His voice when all I've known is the sound of pain
The death of my soul had been dripped
I'm in front of a cliff
And I'm scared to climb it
If there's a person on this that can save my soul, tell me where to find Him

[Hook: Ryan Taylor]
He lives in you (hela hm mamela, hela)
He lives in me (hela hm mamela, hela)
He watches over, He watches over me (hela hm mamela, hela)
Everything we see (hela hm mamela, hela)
Into the waters (hela hm mamela, hela)
Into the truth (hela hm mamela, hela)
In your reflection (hela hm mamela)
He lives in you

(Ingonyama nengw' enamabala
Ingonyama nengw' enamabala
Oh, oh, iyo
Oh, oh, iyo)

[Verse 4: J. Monty]
I want my hands to show
I stand alone right here I'm gone
The land below
It's crying for souls
I don't know where to go
(Oh, oh, iyo) A chance to grow
The antidote's given with a choice
(Oh, oh, iyo) If I pick up this cross I should hear your voice
Speak to me, I can't do this alone
What do you want from me
Who am I that You would be so kind and come down and die for me
(Oh, oh, iyo) I don't understand, I never tried to like You
But who will I give my life to
I realized You are the only source of revival
I put my dead body beside You
I don't wanna run no more
I don't wanna run no more
I wanna see your face when I walk through the door
Can You tell me how to get the devil off of me
Then I heard Him say You just gotta (have faith)
Now I know for a fact

[Hook: Ryan Taylor]
He lives in you (hela hm mamela, hela)
He lives in me (hela hm mamela, hela)
He watches over (hela hm mamela, hela)
Everything we see (hela hm mamela, hela)
Into the waters (hela hm mamela, hela)
Into the truth (hela hm mamela, hela)
In your reflection (hela hm mamela)
He lives in you
He lives in you (hela hm mamela, hela)
He lives in me (hela hm mamela, hela)
He watches over (hela hm mamela, hela)
Everything we see (hela hm mamela, hela)
Into the waters (hela hm mamela, hela)
Into the truth (hela hm mamela, hela)
In your reflection
He lives in you

[Outro]
Ingonyama nengw' enamabala
Ingonyama nengw' enamabala
Ingonyama nengw' enamabala
Ingonyama nengw' enamabala
