"Unity" as written by and Matthew Miller Trevor Hall....
Oh
Yeah
Take me to the table where we all dine together
And pluck me from the crowd and return me to my sender
Whatever path you follow push on till tomorrow
Love all serve all and create no sorrow
So many rivers but they all reach the sea
They telling me he's different but I just don't believe it
Love is the glorious and everyone shall reach it
Who ever seeks it
Seen and unseen

I don't wanna reason anymore about the one I love, the one I love
I don't wanna reason anymore about God above, God above
I just want to melt away, in all His grace
Drift away, into that sacred place
Where there's no more you and me, no more they and we, just unity yeah yeah, just unity yeah yeah, just unity yeah yeah, just unity yeah yeah

Well I don't wana count the leaves of the mango tree
I just want to taste it's sweetness
So you can defeat this above and beneath this
Yeah
Come one and all, come stand tall
And whatever your approaching dance or meditation
If you got love along than you shall reach the station
You find a road, the supreme abode
In this city all hearts shine like gold

Don't wanna reason anymore about the one I love, the one I love
I don't wanna reason anymore about God above, God above
I just want to melt away, in all His grace
Drift away, into that sacred place
Where there's no more you and me, no more they and we, just unity yeah, just unity, just unity, unity, just unity

Me and Jesus, Buddah, Moses, and Gouranga
All dance around, dancing on your thunder
Drunk on the wine of love for thee
Well tell me when will I be blessed to join the bliss of your company
So many stories and so many fables of how the king sings of how the wall wails
Jerusalem to the Holy Himalayas
From Mount Zion to the hills of Jamaica
All land is holy, all land is sacred
All shall leave this world completely naked
Completely naked, completely

I don't want to reason anymore about the one I love, the one I love
I don't want to reason anymore about God above, God above
I just want to melt away, in all His grace
Drift away, into that sacred place
Where there's no more you and me no more they and we just unity oh yeah
Where there's no more you and me no more they and we just unity just unity
Where there's no more you and me no more they and we just unity yeah yeah just unity yeah yeah just unity yeah yeah just unity yeah yeah

    General CommentHall collaborated with Matisyahu on this song. It was written shortly after terrorist attacks in Mumbai (where Matisyahu had many friends) and in response to religious violence in Israel, etc. The song reflects a frustration and disenchantment with any religious perspective that believes it has the absolute correct answer and seeks to argue with others. Instead, they promote conviction partnered with compassion, tolerance, and love. Regardless of their religious perspective, most people can probably relate to this sentiment if they've encountered any sort of conflict with religious pluralism.

    General CommentI like to think he's saying "I don't want to reason anymore about the one I love... I don't want to reason anymore about God above" instead of "want a reason" It makes a big difference - turns reason into a verb instead of a noun. He's tired of trying to rationalize something as mystical and majestic as the concept of God or Love with his "left brain" - instead he wants to melt away into unity with Love, unity with God. It's beautiful:)
