Shrouded in proof, You're the mystery
You're the truth that lives within the world we see

You're the hand that hold destiny

And I can't pretend I don't know

And I can't leave it alone(yeah, yeah)

You're the best kept secret in my generation

The best kept secret of all time

You're the best kept secret in my generation

And I found you out

You're the hope over the centuries

You're the cosmic force that rules the galaxies

You're the evidence that demands our belief

And I can't live for myself

I can't keep this all to myself (yeah, yeah)

You're the best kept secret in my generation

The best kept secret of all time

You're the best kept secret in my generation

And I found you out

You're the best kept secret in my generation

The best kept secret of all time

You're the best kept secret in my generation

And I found you out

Let it out

Let it out

Let it out

Let it out, yeah!

And I can't pretend I don't know

And I can't leave it alone (yeah, yeah)

You're the best kept secret in my generation

The best kept secret of all time

You're the best kept secret in my generation

And I found you out

You're the best kept secret in my generation

The best kept secret of all time

You're the best kept secret in my generation

And I found you out

    General CommentI think song alludes to the one story in the Bible where Jesus
    gives sight to the blind man and despite telling the blind man
    to tell no one of the miracle, the blind man can't help but do so.

    The singer has "discovered" God and can't help but tell others.

    General CommentYeah, this song rocks, but is this song refering to God as "the best kept secret of all time, You're the best kept secret in my generation"? For one thing, God is definetely not a secret!!!

    General CommentThis song is cool.Kiwidd,though,In a way He is isn't he?I mean for one,people are afraid to tell other people they believe in God.4 2,most people don't know about God's love,they may have heard of him,but they really don't know about him or seen his miracles or know that he is all you need to survive spiritually,mentally,and some times physically.They don't know he is great.So I think,like the song says'Let it out'we,the people who do know him should tell people,help them know him,love him,&be w/him 4 eternity by showing them what we have seen.This song rocks,and gets a good point acrossed.

    General Commenti see kiwidd's point but when you think about the fact that in the 10/40 window there are millions who have never heard about God you realize he really is a secret to many people but the part about "i found you out" isn't true at all, we don't find God, God's always there it's just a matter of us accepting his free gift.

    General CommentI think this song is more about witnessing than anything else. I don't think John really means that literally, I think he is trying to say that God is pretty much absent in the media and we all know how much media is a part of our everyday lives. I also think he is trying to say that we CHRISTians really need to get of our butts and really get out there and witness more to our friends and what have you.

    General CommentTHis is the very first Skillet song I ever heard, years ago. My sister taped the music video off of some late night tv show that is no longer on ): and I watched it over and over and over! I love the fact that they have 2 female band members!

    General CommentI think the word "best" carries two meanings here. First, that God is a wonderful secret, something good that we have. Second, that this generation has made no effort to change the fact that to some, God is still a secret.
