(Verse)
It's a hard road but it fits your shoes
Son of rhythm, brother of the blues
The sound of darkness, the pull of the oak
Everything is broken and painted in smoke

(Pre-Chorus)
But there's a light on Sunday, a new design
The sound of the whistle, those radio wires
Love in your future, I'll wait for you there
Put 50000 watts of a common prayer

(Chorus)
50000 watts of common prayer
50000 watts of common prayer

(Verse)
To be who we are and not who we were
A sister to him, a brother to her
We'll live like kings without any sin
Redemption will come, just tune it all in

(Pre-Chorus)
But there's a light on Sunday, a new design
The sound of the whistle, those radio wires
Love in your future, I'll wait for you there
Put 50000 watts of a common prayer

(Chorus)
50000 watts of common prayer
50000 watts of common prayer

My common prayer
Your common prayer
50000 watts of common prayer
