Belly of the Whale
(Gray, Omowale, Steber)

God said to Moses, “Tell Pharoah, the king,
This is what the Lord says, ‘Set my people free.’
I’ll lead you to the promised land, parting of the sea.
The journey won’t take long, if my people believe.”
And they all walked around for 40 years... for 40 years.

Moses on the mountain said, “Set my people free”
Noah built a big boat, took two of everything
Jonah’s in the belly of a fish in the sea
And we’re walking in the wilderness
Wanting to believe that
This is not the eve of destruction.
It’s just another day in the belly of the whale
(It’s just another day. Just, just another day.)

Noah was a righteous man. The Lord came to him and said,
“Build me an ark, Noah, and take two of everything.
Lock up the door cause I’m gonna make it rain
For 40 days and 40 nights to wash the world away.”
And the rain fell down for 40 nights and 40 day.

Moses on the mountain said, “Set my people free”
Noah built a big boat, took two of everything
Jonah’s in the belly of a fish in the sea
And we’re walking in the wilderness
Trying to believe that
This is not the eve of destruction.
It’s just another day in the belly of the whale
(It’s just another day. Just, just another day.)

God said to Jonah, “Go say a word for me.”
But Jonah ran away. Took a ship out to sea.
A mighty storm raged and rocked the angry waves
And he woke up the next morning in the belly of a whale
And Jonah stayed down there for 3 days... for 3 days.

Moses on the mountain said, “Set my people free”
Noah built a big boat, took two of everything
Jonah’s in the belly of a fish in the sea
And we’re walking in the wilderness.
Do we all believe that
This is not the eve of destruction.
It’s just another day in the belly of the whale

about

Nadir Omowale Detroit, Michigan

“To label Nadir as a neo-soul artist would be neglecting his rock roots; to call him a rock artist would be overlooking his hip-hop and jazz influences. Fully encompassing all the talents that Nadir possesses would be comparable to expanding the mathematical term Pi to its last digit.” – The Michigan Chronicle, Detroit, Michigan ... more
