Make me a witness, take me out
Out of darkness, out of doubt

I won't weigh you down with good intention
Won't make fire out of clay or other inventions

Will we burn in heaven, like we do down here?
Will the change come while we're waiting?
Everyone is waiting

And when we're done soul searching
As we carried the weight and died for a cause

Is misery made beautiful right before our eyes
Will mercy be revealed or blind us where we stand?

Will we burn in heaven, like we do down here?
Will the change come while we're waiting?
Everyone is waiting

Will we burn in heaven, like we do down here
Will the change come while we're waiting?
Everyone is waiting
