Backstory: We wrote and released this song over 11 years ago.. it became and continues to be one of our fans and friends favorites. Recently, B-Still and I were together in Bloomington, Indiana where we met and originally wrote and recorded the song.. and decided to shoot a video for our underground classic. We selected several spiritual destinations in “Btown” and Gabriel Lantz shot the footage. Yamily Creative Company edited the video and Chip Reardin, the original producer of the song, Re-Mastered the track as well. Enjoy! Namaste!
I am the One with Many Faces & Many Many Names,
God & Goddess in the hearts that flame,
The rain, the sun, the stars and the moon,
The earth and universe, the song and the tune.
(Verse 1 – Sakshi Zion)
I Am That I Am, the light, shining bright tonight
Like the fire of Yahweh before Moses at Sinai
The burning bush, Ganja, Holy Marijuana
There’s a natural mystic blowing thru the air, Oh Jah
Heartbeats of freedom, Buddha, Bodhisattva Zen,
I’mma climbin Jacob’s ladder to the highest heaven,
to the palace within, I sip the chalice again,
on my flyin carpet Iyah soar Himalayan Mountains
(Verse 2 – B-Still)
They call me Buddha when they know that money isn’t true worth,
they call me the Great Spirit when they can feel me from the earth,
they call me Apollo when they follow me to the west,
call me Jesus in the Middle East, that’s where you know me best,
call me the effect of drugs, when they only feel me shroomin,
call me their soulmate when they see me in a human,
call me the Self of all things when you see things clearly..
It don’t matter what you call me, as long as you can hear me.
(Verse 3 – Sakshi Zion)
I am the one in Kailash, where I smoke ganja
With my coiled dreadlocks dat dem call Jata
They call me Shiva, in Meditation,
I have been that I Am from Creation,
to the zenith of the One, all my relations,
Aho Mitakyasin to all the nations
They call me Krishna Kokopeli with the magic flute
The Kabbalic Tree of Life, with everlasting fruits
They call me Bacchus, Dionysus, got the wine of bliss,
intoxicated circle dance with the flower goddesses,
they call me Isis, Mother Mary, the Magdalene,
the Queen, Triple Goddess, Gaia Earth so Green,
they call me Allah, the Great and Powerful Source,
Kundalini Shakti coiling serpent force,
they call me Rastafari, the King of Kings
Bhakti Yoga is the path, see me dance and sing ahhh
(Chorus & instrumental solo)
(Verse 4 – B-Still)
If I came as a blind man, would you hold my hand?
If I came as animal, would you protect my land?
If I came as the tree, would you cut me down?
And if I came as the rain, would you thank me now?
I come in Rainbows, not jus one single color
So when I come in another race, will you still see me as your brother?
If I said it was you, would you stop searching for me?
I’m what you close your eyes and feel, not what you think you see
They call me 99 names cause you can only describe me,
said I had 1000 yes, Infinity you’ll find me,
call me Keeli-Ana-Kulu-Kulu if you a Zulu
Under the Bodhi tree, like the Buddha I school you
(Verse 5 – Sakshi Zion)
I Am the Omkar, The Primordial Sound
Look Around, I Surround, You’re on Holy Ground
They call me Shanti, Shalom, Pax & Peace
Zion Temple of Love, I Am the High Priest
Emmanuel, Melchizedek, Avilokateshwar
Medicine Buddha and the Green Tara
I Am the whisper of the wind and the ocean’s wave
Jah Redemption call, knowledge of Self that saves
Yeshua Kristos, Haile Selassie I
I Am the Way, the Truth, the Life.
