“Eh-Hee” and huh????

So I was recently reading one of my blogging friends blogs and he mentioned a free download on iTunes… I immediately jumped on it because it was free and Dave Matthews… After downloading it I watched it…

I thought some of his lyrics were very interesting but was kind of disturbed by the video…

Here’s the lyrics (I bolded the interesting parts):

Father gone and I’m heading
It’s a bold side of it again
When you decide to go to him
And the people toasting away
And the people all sitting there, c’mon

Everybody gonna come on in
Like, like c’mon in, yeah, yeah
Everybody gonna come on in
Y’all it’s you wanna c’mon, sir

Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh

Praise God who has many names
The devil have many more
With the love that my mother gave me
I’m gonna drop the devil to the floor

I’m gonna drop the devil to his knees
I’m gonna drop the devil to his knees

Sweet evolution how people have come to believe
That we are it’s greatest achievement
We’re barely, we’re just a collection of cells
Overrating themselves
Oh God I’m avoiding the
(Is Dave saying he is avoiding God???)

Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana

Walking along in this haze of confusion
Sometimes I collect, sometimes it takes all of my strength
Just to find enough reason to take the next step, step
But I will, but I will, till I do
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana

Praise God who has many names
The devil have many more
With the love that my mother gave me
I’m gonna drop the devil to the floor

I’m gonna drop the devil to his knees
I’m gonna drop the devil to his knees

Strange evolution how people have come to believe
That we are it’s greatest achievement
We’re barely, we’re just a collection of cells
Overrating themselves
Hello God I’m avoiding the truth
(Is Dave saying he is avoiding the Bible???)

Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana

Drop the devil to his knees
I’m gonna drop the devil to his knees
I’m gonna drop the devil to his knees
I’m gonna drop the devil to his knees

Brother, sister
Brother, sister
Brother, sister
Brother, sister
Praise

I am still very confused at what Dave Matthews is trying to get across here… I like some of his lyrics but some are making me wonder “Is Dave Matthews seeking God?”… I am going to pray that Dave Matthews finds God and seeks the truth… I hope that someone in his direct path can lead him that way…

Here’s the link to download “Eh Hee” Music Video Free on iTunes (NOTE: The video is marked “EXPLICIT” due to a couple of curse words. I in no way support that kind of language.)… Download the video and let me know what you think…

  1. Dave Matthews is a lyrical genius who is also believer in God. Many of his songs have a religious background. See “Christmas Story” and “Bartender” just to name a couple. Dave has a different outlook on life and hypocracy in the world today, and that tends to come out in his lyrics.

  2. Pick up this month’s Rolling Stone… Dave articulates his view of God in an interview… Quite eloquent…
