Give me the urgency to be
right here and right now
taking full responsibility
Put me in my place
show me my mistakes
for the sake of grace

Give me relevancy
let me feed the hungry
I want to be necessary
Say it to my face
crush my wayside shrines
Light my way today

I'll be up the barricades
My life is at stake here
I would rather burn down than fade away

Give me your ideals and truth over theory
I need a conviction
Give it to me straight
throw me to my face
let me pray your ears off

I'll be up the barricades
My life is at stake here
I would rather burn down than fade away

I'll be up the barricades
My life is at stake here
I would rather burn down than fade away

All you see is all you get
there's nothing more
there's nothing less
Everything that meets the eye
is everything there is to life
