The Healer
Erykah Badu Lyrics


Alhamdulillah Allah Jehovah
Yahweh Dios Ma'at Jah
Rastafari fyah dance, sex, music, hip-hop

It's bigger than religion
Hip-hop
It's bigger than my nigga
Hip-hop
It's bigger than the government
This one is fa' Dilla, hip-hop

We ain't dead said the children don't believe it
We just made ourselves invisible
Underwater, stove-top, blue flame scientists
Come out with your scales up
Get baptized in the ocean of the hungry

My niggas turn in to gods
Walls come tumblin'

Alhamdulillah Allah Jehovah
Yahweh Dios Ma'at Jah
Rastafari fyah dance, sex, music, hip-hop

It's bigger than religion
Hip-hop
It's bigger than my nigga
Hip-hop
It's bigger than the government
This one is the healer, hip-hop

Told you we ain't dead yet
We been livin' through your internet
You don't have to believe everything you think
We've been programmed wake up, we miss you
They call you indigo, we call you Africa
Go get baptized in the ocean of the people
Say reboot, refresh, restart
Fresh page, new day, O.G.'s, new key

One of the most underrated R&B/hip hop tracks I've ever heard. Doesn't get old. Madlib is a straight music magician.

It's easier to understand when you look at how Erykah wrote the actual lyrics in the CD book. It's written as a play/drama with roles: The Healer, The Children, and All. For example, The Healer says: "they call you indigo" (they=other people), and The Children respond: "we call you AFRICA" (aka the healer for indigo children is the land of Africa). It may referr to ancient stories about indigo children, who originally came from places in Africa. THEY say: "we've been programmed", and The Healer tells them to "wake up". It is believed many of indigo children are still alive today, which is what a song is about (above the literal message that hip hop is bigger than religion etc). It's about the rebirth of pure souls who feel connected to nature, spirituality and have compassion for all. It's for people to realise there are many of them still among us but some have been shut down by the digitalized system. I think The Healer may symbolize Earth, as it says: "we miss you" to the children.
Please forgive me my poor English, but it's not my native language.
