I am a God in my own little temple
That may sound complicated but it's really quite simple
What I see in myself, you'll see it in my face
My body's just a product of the thoughts that I create

And if I change my mind, I change my state
If I change today, I change my fate
So who'm I gonna blame when I'm down and jaded?
Who'm I gonna blame when I'm feeling wasted?
Who'm I gonna blame when my hope is faded?

This is the life that I created

What you see is what you get
What you see is what you get
There's one thing you can't forget
(There's one thing)
What I see is what I get

Listen, what you see is what you get
Just visualise the things that you need
Life has a way of bringing you these opportunities
Is it logical, does it make any sense?
Is there more to this than just coincidence?

Concentration, meditation
Will directly result in those manifestations
And I'd like to express my appreciation
For the beautiful things I have in my life
I'm not all caught up in the pain and the strife
I just think about the things I wanna see
And I see and I see and I see

What you see is what you get
What you see is what you get
There's one thing you can't forget
What I see is what I get

And know that pain is just part of the dance
But perception is more than just experience
It's not what you go through it's what you know
Suffering is optional

Memories are like a chronic disease
They can bring a grown man right down to his knees
So run from your past, baby deal with it
Or you're constantly re-repeating it

Well, you don't mind, you got the power
Well sweetie if you want to you can start right over
Just cut your ties, realise
This life is a decision, just decide

Just decide
Just decide

What you see is what you get
(Just decide)
What you see is what you get
(Just decide)
There's one thing you can't forget
(Just decide)
What I see is what I get
(Just decide)

What you see is what you get
(Just decide)
What you see is what you get
(Just decide)
There's one thing you can't forget
(Just decide)
What I see is what I get
(Just decide)

What you see is what you get
(Just decide)
What you see is what you get
(Just decide)
There's one thing you can't forget
(Just decide)
What I see is what I get
(Just decide)

This is the church
This is the steeple

(Just believe)

This is the church
This is the steeple
