From the recording Amittai Blakk - Only One
A unique synthesis of jazz, hip-hop, old school R&B and rock, Amittai Blakk conveys an unmistakable intensity and soulfulness that carries listeners to another place. Drawing from diverse influences, including Prince, Lenny Kravitz, Parliament Funkadelic, and Rare Earth, Amittai Blakk has forged a sound uniquely their own, and one that defies genre… A sound that follows no traditional rules. Through collaborative songcraft and seasoned, professional musicians, this 7-piece, Charlotte, NC-based band is already a “must-see” live act. The first single, Levels, is an explosive and dynamic tour de force, poised to take college campuses by storm.

Verse 1/ Life is so simpleYet man complicate it for his own greedWhile the world is on fireBecause of inequalitiesMany names are called when we prayBut I come to let you knowHook/ There's oneOnly oneThere's oneOnly one
Verse 2/ Man label messengers of truthSo the majority of people stay fooledIf they can't convince you that they're GodCorporations will discredit you tooWhen they come for me I'll be readyCause I believe
Verse 3/ The fight to control all of our mindsWill spark a world revolutionWhichever currency you have in your nationCould never take the place of the creatorWhen I needed shackles released off my spiritI found only one
Vamp/ Make no difference what you call himI believe there's only oneYou can call him ElohimYou can call him JehovahYou can call him El ShaddaiYou can call him AllahYou can call him JahOh I believe there's only oneAnd I don't care who know it I believe in God
