god given lyrics – nine inch nails

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 wanna 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 it gives us sight
and we see the light
and it burns so bright
now we know we’re right
and his kingdom come
and thy will be done
we’ve just begun
we’re the chosen ones

i would never tell you anything
that wasn’t absolutely true
that hadn’t come right from his mouth
and he wants me to tell you

wait, step into the light
how can this be right?
i’m afraid we’re going to ask you to leave
this you cannot win
with the color of your skin
you won’t be getting into 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 it gives us sight
and we see the light
and it burns so bright
now we know we’re right
and his kingdom come
and thy will be done
we’ve just begun
we’re the chosen ones

i would never tell you anything
that wasn’t absolutely true
that hadn’t come right from his mouth
and he wants me to tell you
