"The Promised Land" as written by Malik Yusef El Shabbaz Jones and Steve Mckeever....
The same dream every night
The dream of distant lands
where sun and moon unite
where all my longing ends

But when I wake from sleep
My eyes are full of rust
There’s nothing I can keep
My vision fades to dust

Bring me to the promised land
You know I need to understand
Why horizons
Are too far to touch

Please take me down to holy grounds
Where I can hear a million sounds
Why my longing
Always hurts so much

Is there a secret way?
Is there a secret door?
Do I have to pray?
To reach the promised shore?

The key is in your eyes
And written on your heart
Where all the wisdom lies
Where all creations start

Bring me to the promised land
You know I need to understand
Why horizons
Are too far too touch

Please take me down to holy grounds
Where I can hear a million sounds
Why my longing
Always hurts so much

Is there a secret way?
Is there a secret door?
Do I have to pray?
To reach an open shore?

Bring me to the promised land
You know I need to understand
Why horizons
Are too far too touch

Please take me down to holy grounds
Where I can hear a million sounds
Why my longing
Always hurts so much

Ooooh ahhhh
Ooooh ahhh
Oooh ah
Oh ah
Ooooooh ahhh...

Please take me down to holy grounds
Where I can hear a million sounds
Why my longing
Always hurts so much

Is there a secret way?
Is there a secret door?
Do I have to pray?
To reach the promised shore?
