"Soul Education" as written by and Jason/smith Kay....
I didn't have no time for school
Spent my days breaking the rules and regulations
And in between me having fun
All the teachers told me son, get an education
So I had my days of freedom
Dressed like a man through four seasons
Hey I'm steppin' out so cut me loose
And as mama waved goodbye
Tears were welling in her eyes
She don't need them
I turned to her and said:

I've got my soul education
You know it's stitched into the clothes that I wear
Got my life information
Upon the breeze that's blowing through my hair
Got a pocket full of rainbows
Oh and a sky to put them in so blue
So let the music come and save you
I found a God that I can pray to
Deep inside my soul, hey

See you're mad you can't delude
But there is no substitute
For intuition, there's no superstition
So if you find you're petrified
To let some natural law apply
Then there's a whole lot missing baby yeah
So you know I'm blessed celestially
Got a direct link with destiny yeah
Don't ask me why
I'm in the sky
And if there's green wax in your eye
Somethings money just can't buy, hey
Rags to riches, babes to bitches
But the ride don't mind cause I got my

I know I got my soul education
You know that it's stitched into the clothes that I wear
I've got my life information
Upon the wind that's blowing through my hair
I know I've got a pocket full of rainbows, hey
Oh and a sky to put them in so blue
So let the music come and save you
I know I found a God that I can pray to
And it's deep inside my soul, hey

I've got my soul education
You know that it's stitched into the clothes that I wear
I've got my life information
Upon the breeze that's blowing through my hair
I know I've got a pocket full of rainbows
And a sky to put them in so blue
So let the music come and save you
I know I found a God
I know I found a God that I
I know I found a God that I can pray to
Just let the music come and save you
I know I found a God
I know I found a God that I can pray to

    General CommentIm agreeing with Davina,.
    Its also about how we seem to use our knowledge instead of our natural intuition, and when you find it, it can be a direct link to urself and your own destiny.

    General CommentIt's about when he was like 15 and he lived in the streets after his mother threw him out the house because she couldn't handle him anymore and he was bitter for a while but after that he realized it was for the better and he grew up and decided to become a musician.
