After Martin Luther King, Jr. and P-Funk

I want you to follow me through here
              So wide

They said don’t come there
                             You can’t get around it
But I am here
              So high

They said there is no here
                             You can’t get over it
But I have been there
               So low


You can’t get under it

               I may not get here
Our only guide,

             But look there
the groove
                           Here you are
