Lyrics
I've been to the mountain top
I've been to the valley low
The one thing that never stopped
Was the love that my family showed
When my mama she passed away
My papa he gave us hope
He said there won't ever come a day
When your family won't help you cope

As sure as Moses' staff parted the water
As sure as Cain had to pay four his crime
As sure as no one wants to be brokenhearted
That's how sure I am that blood is thicker than time

Well
We went to church on Sunday mornin' (Oh yeah)
All dressed up lookin' mighty fine
The spirit came without a warning
Intoxicated us all like wine
Don't it make you stop and wonder
Why we kill our own kind every day?
Why can't we get along with each other
When we damn well know it's the only way?

As sure as Moses' staff parted the water
As sure as Cain had to pay four his crime
As sure as no one wants to be brokenhearted
That's how sure I am that blood is thicker than time
(That's how sure I am, oh yeah, blood is thicker than time)

Don't it make you stop and wonder
Why we kill our own kind every day?
Why can't we get along with each other
When we damn well know it's the only way?

As sure as Moses' staff parted the water
As sure as Cain had to pay four his crime (Uh-huh)
As sure as no one wants to be brokenhearted
That's how sure I am that blood is thicker than time

That's how sure I am blood is thicker than time
