"Moses" is a track of the Soulfly album Prophecy, released in 2004. The song exhibits reggae jams blending with metal riffs typical of Soulfly. This song features all five members of the Serbian band Eyesburn, including Nemanja Kojić (well known as Hornsman Coyote), who appears in two Soulfly songs (the other is one of its tracks on their next album). "Moses" features a trombone performed by another Eyesburn member, which is heard most continuously during the beginning.

This title was inspired from the given name of Max Cavalera's then unborn grandson, who would only live for eight months. This song stars the prophet Moses who talks about humanity issues with wars.

This is one of three tracks on this album where the outro is a sample of wails by Asha Rabouin.

Lyrics Edit

What is wrong with humans from beginning of creation
Brutal them a never gonna change no I
Father give them life that them turn to sufferation
Politics them worship in them rage

They will never make to rule my life
No matter what takes I'm breaking their breaks
With jah love humanity survive
No matter what takes I'm breaking their breaks

Moses, Moses where are u?
Please, show up tell the children what to do, oh I
Moses, Moses where are u?
Please, show up tell the children what to do, oh I

Father of creation
Give me inspiration
Father of creation
Give me inspiration

Is Armageddon time

What is wrong with humans from beginning of creation
Brutal them a never gonna change, no I
Father give them life that them turn to sufferation
Politics them worship in them rage

They will never make to rule my life
No matter what takes I'm breaking their breaks
With God love humanity survive
No matter what takes I'm breaking their breaks

Moses, Moses where are u?
Please, show up, tell the children what to do
Moses, Moses where are u?
Please, show up, tell the children what to do

Father of creation
Give me inspiration
Father of creation
Through the sufferation

In this world that seems so lost
Are we warriors, are we not?
So many battles I have fought
So many more, I'm a soldier of God

Men against men I don't understand
Hate breeds hate in this rat race
We against you, watching you fall
Follow me know, blood of my blood

In this world that seems so lost
Are we warriors, are we not?
So many battles I have fought
So many more, I'm a soldier of God

Tribal war
Jungle law
Follow me now
Blood of my blood

Moses, Moses where are u?
Please, show up, tell the children what to do
Moses, Moses where are u?
Please, show up, tell the children what to do
