While the lush acoustic melody of “God Fearing Man” may send you into a peaceful trace, the message of not taking your life on this earth for granted is anything but subdued:

Listen mister brother sister/family and friend/I fear with each day pass/our time grows closer to the end/Listen stranger passer by/and those I never knew/there’s not one day that you are living/has been promised to you/I am a God fearing man
