The gospel according to Dave Matthews

I once had a blog entitled: The gospel according to eddie vedder

So now I continue that theme using another musician i like.
Because yes, God can teach us things, even through songs:

Check out the song above by Dave Matthews Band called: Gaucho

As I hear the song for the first 2 times, I note how these lyrics jump out at me:


with fire to keep us warm
and tools we made from rocks and bones
a roof over your head
and walls to keep you safe in bed.
there must be more than this
so God was born and we in His
image of fear and love
looked down upon from up above.

we gotta do much more than believe if we really wanna change things
we gotta do much more than believe if we wanna see the world change
we crossed the oceans wide
built cities to the sky (oh Lord)
looked up and we were flying
but will we not survive ourselves

we gotta do much more than believe if wanna see the world change
we gotta do much more than believe if we really wanna change things
we gotta do much more than believe, go on try it, go on try it
we gotta do much more than believe if we wanna see the world change
