Hey man, please don't make a sound
Take a look around, can't you see what's right in front of you?
Have a little taste, no more time to waste
You don't want to get left behind 'cause it's all coming down right now

How hard is it to see, put your faith in me
I sure wouldn't want to be praying to the wrong piece of wood
You should get where you belong, everything you know is wrong
Come on, sing along everybody now

God given and He gives us sight and we see the light
And it burns so bright, now we know we're right
When His kingdom come and Thy will be done
We have just begun, we're the chosen ones

[Incomprehensible]

Wait, step into the light, how can this be right?
I'm afraid we're going to ask you to leave
Guess you cannot win with the color of your skin
You won't be getting in to the promised land

This is just another case, you people still don't know your place
Step aside, out the way, wipe that look off your face
'Cause we are the divine, separated from the swine
Come on, sing along everybody now

God given and He gives us sight and we see the light
And it burns so bright, now we know we're right
When His kingdom come and Thy will be done
We have just begun, we're the chosen ones

And He gives us sight and we see the light
And it burns so bright, now we know we're right
When His kingdom come and Thy will be done
We have just begun, we're the chosen ones
