Undress the hate Your tired hands Begin to shake Your so worn out War torn indifferent You lie among the cobwebs in your hiding place You take another pill and float away, yeah
And you, you were born to the rule the world And you could have changed the future But you didn't realize what it took to pay the price You were born to rule the world But you couldn't tell the future Can you look into the eyes Of the innocent who've died You were born to rule the world- yes you You were born to rule the world
We call your name The same name that's always been From the dawn of time We need your help To save us from ourselves We turn to the guilty and religious right We try to understand the reasons why? why?
That you- You you were born to rule the world And you came to change the future We could not realize Why you gladly paid the price You were born to rule the world And you died to make us listen A Human sacrifice Can we look into your eyes
You were born to rule the world You were born to rule the world You were born to rule the world
And you, you were born to the world And you came to change the future And you didn't criticize You just laid it on the line You were born to rule the world The magic and the lesson A Human sacrifice Can we look into your eyes Can we look into your eyes Will we look into your eyes Will we look into your eyes?
Sure enough cooking is our own fate And not everyone thinks about the human race Even when were all swimming in the same big lake You know everyone listens but they never change Too many people want to just kill the pain But all of us need to hear that voice again Yeshua
Oh my god, there's something changing That we didn't know
'Firing line' Guilty as charged Take another life No one here but me to blame Take another life Guilty as charged
They saw us coming From miles away Jubilant train Wearing a pink boa and feathers like an exotic bird Double headed Breathing smoke Looking for a line to quote Waiting to jump the rope To change the vote To witness hope In the newest thing Called freedom But they said 'no way' And they wore the same coats Khaki brown and faded Typed at the same machines And tried to box up all the dreams In neat little packages Like widgets for the factory All the while watching big brother watching Big brother watching Big brother watching... 'But we are crashing gates And we are passing over the gate keepers" We are the new And we are marching like a jubilant train Through your towns Past your landscapes of lame ducks Past the lines of indifference Past the stormtroopers of compromise The deputies of damage control The officers of fear As they hand out their tickets to the deaf and the dumb and the younger ones To the very old, the influential, the disturbed, the zealots, the sheltered, the innocent. We pass through the gates Like the dawning of a new age Like the turning of a new page Like the birth of a new son Like freedom On a roll Wearing nothing but a smile on our faces And our hands up in the air
