Where do you stand in this battle cry?
Tribal Soldier? Represent!
I and I a Jah Jah warrior
The reconstruction commences, the soldiers equip for the lessons
My life, a sacrifice is made new through these confessions
Manifested, this joy is my desire
Light this fire to flames, praise the name, Jehovah Jireh
Is my provider, the truth that lives inside of this fighter?
Take me higher, Master, Sire, makes me a rider
I'm gonna ride on down till I break through the front lines
And ain't going home until I gets mines

Where do you stand in this battle cry?
Tribal Soldier? Represent!
I and I a Jah Jah warrior

I grab ahold of my second chance, this time gonna make it last
Left the world came back an outkast
To lay among the remains, through the trials and the pains
Run for cover, make shelter, uncharted terrains
Bloodstains light the paths to the ways of living breath
My soul is put to the test
Blessed with a mic in my hand, Jah make straight my steps
Then I hooked up with Payable On Death
We flow in unity, stand in one while the foolish be
Lost in this hour, with power we have authority
To overcome while these cowards just pick up and run
We ain't done till this battle has been fought and won
The victory, how sweet it be, is already ours
Holding the stars, is the man that carries my scars
Always the same, I wear his name with no shame
Here in this battle cry, we will never die
We will never die tribal warriors

Where do you stand in this battle cry?
Tribal Soldier? Represent!
I and I a Jah Jah warrior

    General CommentThis song means a lot to me as a teenage Christian. It helps me to remember that I must represent Jesus with my words and actions
    and that God with always be there for me.

    General CommentTHis songs is kinda saying "hey, I'm in this battle fighting for God and we're winning. What team do you want to be on?" if you get what I mean.

    General CommentThis is my favorite P.O.D song out of all 4 albums! The message is so awsome! The way that they pump out the Truth is truely inspiring to me.

    *I grab ahold of my second chance* = Rebirth through Jesus Christ's blood

    *Left the world came back an outkast* = "I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me." (Galatians 2:20)

    *Bloodstains light the paths to the ways of living breath* = Another reference to salvation through Christ's blood

    *The victory, how sweet it be, is already ours* = "And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him that sat on the horse, and against His army. And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet... ...These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone." (Relevation 19:19-20)

    Now explain to me why older Christians think P.O.D is sacrilegious?

    General CommentGood song, wrong title.

    On my CD, it's simply called "Tribal".

    General CommentI agree with RogueFrequency. I will add the following:

    Holding the stars, is the man that carries my scars
    Always the same, I wear his name with no shame
    Here in this battle cry, we will never die
    We will never die tribal warriors

    Really encourages me to live my faith all the time.

    General CommentThis is my fav besides outkast, this song to me is about how we need to be equipped in the armor of god and fight for him, and the song follow me is mainly about the book of proverbs.
