Too many hypocrites - I heard her say

I even saw it in the headlines today

How can I follow God, when His own people turn away?

Nobody's perfect but I just want to see

Somebody living what they say they believe

If they've got all this world needs like they say

I wonder why won't they give some away



(Chorus:)

Can she/he/they see God for who He really is

In what she/he/they see(s) in you and me?

Yeah, Can she/he/they see God for who He really is,

For who He really is, is all she/they really needs to see

For who he really is - is all he really needs to see

All he really needs to see



He slips into church and he puts up his guard

They look so happy but his life's been so hard

He keeps his distance so they wont see the scars

It's just religion that's all dressed up in white

And God is love as long as you're living right

But does he know that Jesus also had scars

And His love can reach him no matter how far



The skeptics are watching to see who will fall

While those disillusioned search for the truth in it all

Maybe today we'll cross their paths unaware

And they'll stop and look at us. What will be there?
