"Speaking In Tongues" as written by and Mariqueen Arrabaca Maandig Atticus Ross....
Got the kind of face everybody knows
Run around barefoot when it snows
Growin' out your hair 'cause you like it long
Fighting in the road 'cause you know it's wrong

People got a thing for the dangerous
You'll find it inside the best of us
Taking what they want like it's owed to them
Some of us do the best we can, some of us do the best we can

Brothers, Brothers
Everybody's speaking in tongues, we gotta speak in love
Brothers, Brothers
Everybody's speaking in tongues, we gotta speak in love

Never met a man, said he did not try
Running from the truth time again in life
You can be the poor one, rich or wise
Everybody knows 'bout sacrifice

So put me in the water, put me in the fire
Put me in the world and I'll walk that wire
Seen the people come and I've seen them go
Talk all day but it's what they show, talk all day but it's what you show

Brothers, Brothers
Everybody's speaking in tongues, we gotta speak in love
Brothers, Brothers
Everybody's speaking in tongues, we gotta speak in love

People got a thing for the dangerous
You'll find it inside the best of us
Taking what they want like it's owed to them
Some of us do the best we can

Put me in the water, put me in the fire
Put me in the world and I'll walk that wire
Seen the people come and I've seen them go
Talk all day but it's what they show

Brothers, Brothers
Everybody's speaking in tongues, we gotta speak in love
Brothers, Brothers
Everybody's speaking in tongues, we gotta speak in love, love, love

    General CommentThe guitar riff in this song sounds vaguely familiar, does anybody know what I speak of. Anyway, this is a song about how the world is divisive and in need of repair. It seems the lead singer admits that he is also part of the problem. I live the Christian message but there is a major flaw in the thinking there...If Jesus came with a sword, then why is he preaching about love. I guess tough love is better than no love.
