"Whose Chariot?" as written by and Christopher David Culos Benjamin Aaron Gershman....
A pattern sunrise, swept
Along the way a sunrise.
And under these overpasses,
A towering mountain does rise.
Don't cross the river not over there,
There'll be a mystery revealed,
And I bet you dare.
And if I am to seek this place you can see,
Who's chariot to follow so I, can be free?

At night the stars cry,
I gaze upon a lake of backyard,
And under these overpasses,
A towering mountain does lie.
Don't cross the river not over there,
There'll be a mystery revealed,
That were meant to share.
So if I am to seek this place you can see,
Who's chariot to follow so I, can be free?

Oh No, here we are again.
Oh No, here we are again.

My momma told me,
"Don't go 'cross that river,
Because you might not make it back,
The beast gonna eat your heart."
She said, "Don't go out there,
Stay upon your track.
This money has torn my family apart,
And I cannot buy it back."
So of course I built my boat,
And I was half upon my way.
When I got to the other side,
The water came rushing down,
Washed me away.

Who's Chariot? Who's Chariot? Who's Chariot?
Chariot? Who's Chariot? Whose Chariot?
Chariot? Chariot? Who's Chariot?
Chariot? Chariot?

Freedom, Freedom, Who's Chariot?
Freedom, Freedom, Who's Chariot?
Freedom, Freedom, Who's Chariot?
Who's Chariot? Take me home!
Take me home.

Oh No, said I'm out that door again,
I left my house, my money,
And my dearest friend.
I'm not going back jack.
I cross the river got a little
Bit of business that I'm doing today.
You didn't feel me,
You can't really see no good,
I made my life out a stack of wood.
I've been moving cross the river today,
But Who's Chariot?
Take me home! Take me home.

Whose chariot? Take me home.
Hallaluyah! Coming home.
Chariot, gotta, where will you take me.
Chariot will ya, will ya take me.
Chariot will ya, will ya take me.
Oh Chariot would ya pick me up, take me.
Oh Chariot, gotta, oh will you take me!
Chariot just pick me up and take me!
Oh Chariot, come and get me.
Who's Chariot? Take me home!
Take me home.

    General CommentJust... wow.

    The 34th and 8th version of this speeds it up a little, bringing with it a frenetic happiness and passion. For the life of me, I can't help but have a huge goofy grin on my face every single time I listen to this.

    General Commentthis song is actually about making the character in the song making a decision. the decision is between taking his life to bigger and better things and getting the money, but at the same time knowing that it might eventually corrupt and ruin him. the other decision is to just to live the way he's been living and enjoy his life the way it is, knowing that he will be happy with how his life as turned out. great song

    General Commentto me this song is about somebody who has a life that society thinks we should have. (big house, nice car, good paying job big family)
    however it doesnt make him happy.
    he wants to live a carefree life somewhere closer to nature.
    its about the risk of giving up your old life in exchange for what makes you happy.

    General Commentdoes anybody know what "chariot" directly refers to?

    General Commentthe chariot references is a biblical one. In this song, it refers to the 'chariot' that will take us to heaven or home. In the old testament, the prophet Elijah is taken to heaven on a 'chariot of fire'. It is also often linked to freedom. The famous slave song, 'Swing Low, Sweet Chariot' is further evidence of this relation to either heaven or freedom.
