lyrics

Type A Prayer

Intro – Ian I
Been seeing this vision so long
This song is a prayer so strong
When ya feel it inside it's so true
So we're singing this thing to you

Chorus – Ian I

Coming with a new type a prayer

Coming with a brand new thing to do

Coming with a new song to sing

And we re singing this thing to you

Coming with a new type a prayer

Coming with a brand new thing to do

Coming with a new vibe to bring

And we're bringing this thing to you 

2nd Chorus – Ras Jahn

We've got keep free the Vibe

That's the thing that keeps us alive
Helps us to stay real inside
We've got nothing to hide
Always stay where the peace will abide
The most positive thing I ever could have tried
Helps us to stay real inside
We've got nothing to hide



Chorus – Ian I 

Coming with a new type a prayer

Coming with a brand new thing to do
Coming with a new song to sing

And we re singing this thing to you

Coming with a new type a prayer

Coming with a brand new thing to do

Coming with a new vibe to bring

And we're bringing this thing to you


1st Verse – Force

This Represents pain, hunger, struggle, passion

The depths that I'll go for these goals you can't fathom

The pattern I'm in with a pad and a pen

like I'm battling vice no advice i can give

in this life except live. Invested

and this testament here is a gift for the kids.

If chivalry's dead then the sword from the stone

that I pull for the throne's for the nights (knights) all alone

I write what i know and i hope it swings low

when the chariot comes forth to carry me home

And all I ask is the past hassles and traps don't last

look back and laugh after the fact

And master the craft shaft in Africa paragraphs (hot)

Capture the masses and give back

and that's all my supplications

patience only goes so far leave the rest up to faith then.

2nd Chorus – Ras Jahn
We've got keep free the Vibe

That's the thing that keeps us alive
Helps us to stay real inside
We've got nothing to hide
Always stay where the peace will abide
The most positive thing I ever could have tried
Helps us to stay real inside
We've got nothing to hide


2nd Verse – Ian I 

The vibe Jah giving got me moving

Come on in and dig on this lovin'

It's really really true when u type a prayer too

Experience the bliss that comes from U

Coming from the top like a crown chakra dot

Illuminate the soul let the music hit the spot

From u are whole with a momentary stop

of suffering, buffering truth through the roots-hop

Takes a while before it comes visible

It's the spiritual moving through the physical

motions, oceans washed so many away

If I'm singing I give thanks and praise; Yeah!

I man a ride with it and a glide with it so long

Woman a roll with it and her soul with it so strong

The way I sing with it and a bring with it soul vibes

The way we rock with it shock with it hot with it So I

Chorus – Ian I 

Coming with a new type a prayer

Coming with a brand new thing to do

Coming with a new song to sing

And we re singing this thing to you

Coming with a new type a prayer

Coming with a brand new thing to do

Coming with a new vibe to bring

And we're bringing this thing to you


Are you ready?
