Holy Sugar Honey Iced Tea

The Roots featuring Dice Raw and Greg Porn “Understand”

I’m not sure if this song is religious, per se, but it is a very interesting meditation on the way people often reflexively evoke God and prayer when it’s convenient to them, even though they don’t ordinarily live their lives as religious people. Dice Raw flips the idea a little on the chorus, shifting the perspective to a God who is confounded by humanity, where we’re just as much a mystery to Him as He is to us. And if you come at it from a non-religious place, it’s like a structure created so humans can understand themselves has fundamentally lost its ability to do so. And all these people, all of us, are left without really knowing what to do about that.

Buy it from Amazon.
