We can take the beauty of a mountain
And say it was bound to fall.
We can take the vast stretches of ocean
And say that the tide will stall.
We can give the trees their color,
Or we can live in black and white.
We can learn to love each other,
Or we can bitch and fight.
‘Cause we’re in command...

We create our own gods
Through images that we paint.
We create our own gods
Through images, you know that we create them.

We can turn fear into bliss,
Or we can watch the storm roll on.
We can turn the rain clouds into mist,
And pretend that the lightning's gone.
We can throw thunder in the wind,
Or we can let the time pass by.
We can let the sun melt our sins,
Or we can sit and lie.
‘Cause we’re in control

We create our own gods
Through images that we paint.
We create our own gods
Through images, you know that we create them.

In the desert,
I’ll be your thirst
Craving conclusion,
But only getting the worst.
Lost in the sea,
I’ll look to the moon.
My guiding star I’ll reach the shore soon
‘Cause we hold the reigns...

We create our own gods
Through images that we paint.
We create our own gods
Through images, you know that we create them.

We create our own gods.
We create our own gods.
We create our own gods.
