I can’t look at what we’ve done
And make it all okay
All hope is found in you
We know it’s found in you

I can’t look at what we’ve done
And make it all okay
All hope is found in you
We know it’s found in you

Take us and let us see
All we need is to see
Take us and let us see
All we need is to see

Let us carry on through the night

Take us and let us see
All we need is to see
Take us and let us see
All we need is to see

Its like they poisoned us overnight
How much can they take
We all need to take charge
(We can wake them)

Speak now and save this world
When silence is deafening

Speak now and save this world
When silence is deafening

The world is set aflame
God is real
And we stand strong
Speak now and save this world

So write this down
As it comes
As a reminder
For when your lost
this shall come to mind

All was offered
All was offered

We are not of this world
We are of God

We have become so
Lost in how we think it is supposed to be
Let us become one
Voice because we were meant to sing

We look to you father

The day has actually come
Where they will tell us lies
These words are not in the book
Don’t tell us what you think
Don’t preach to us in vain

Tell us about the truth

I have come to destroy the wisdom
I have come to destroy the wise
I have come to destroy the wisdom

(of the wise)

    General Commentit probably means a lot of things.
    "wisdom of the wise" probably means scientists.. and "these words are not in the book" probably means its not in the bible..
    GOOD SONG!!

    General CommentI love this song. This is basically about the so called "wisdom" of the world, which is full of lies. I think it's almost all based off of 1 Corinthians 1, not 100% sure though.
    1 Corinthians 1:19 - I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate.

    God is real. Stand strong.
