Do you need a messiah?
Are you waiting to call upon
a larger icon to rely on?

Do you need a messiah?
Are you waiting for Jesus?
Are you waiting for MLK
to rise from the grave and lead us?
Don't you know how they needed us?

Are we searching for guidance?
Are we scared that the things that we need
are things that we can't find inside us?
Are they things that we hide from ourselves?

I'd like to believe and
I'd like to believe that these sermons and preachers
amounted to more than a lot of hot breath
but I will not be lead any longer through the desert.

And I'd like to believe that the things we put faith in
amounted to more than just big apparitions.
If we don't have faith in ourselves
that begs the question.

The concession of power
resignation to follow on.
These are the words that turn sour.

Can we ask ourselves,
"do we need a messiah?"
Is what we've waited for come along?
Or should we get on our feet, and walk?
