(Written By Cohen, Performed In "Night Magic")

(Michael) We were chosen, we were chosen
Miles and miles apart
I to love your kingdom
You to love my heart

(Angels) We were chosen
We do what must
What must be done

(Michael) The love is intermittent
The discipline continues
I work on your spirit
You work on my sinews.

(Angels) We work on his sinews
And the discipline continues

We have fun 'cause
We do what must
What must be done

(Michael) I watch myself from where you are
Please do not be mistaken
The spider web you see me through
Is the view I've always taken


Begin the ceremony now
That we have been preparing
I'm tired of this marble floor
That we have both been sharing.

(Angels) Now we will be sharing
What he has been preparing!

(Girls) He's the only one
He's the only one
He's the riddle of the music
He's the music of my life

(Boys) Now it begins
Now it begins
He's the riddle of the music
He's the music of the sacrifice

(Valkyries) Messenger
Messenger
Our will
Will be done

(Angels) We work on his sinews
And the discipline continues

(Everyone) Begin the ceremony
Begin the sacrifice ...
