Look at you now just standing there
Like you think you're something
The lights are up
And the crowd is looking your way
Just waiting for what you have to say

So go ahead boy,
Give 'em a little taste of hypocrisy
And maybe a hint of blasphemy
Whatever you're preaching, it isn't me

You wanna walk with me?
Do ya? wanna walk with me?
Well if you love me
Then just love me
Don't you give me pretty words
Lay your life down at the altar
Let me see how serious you are

These people don't look to me no more
They've got their idols in various forms
With lust in their eyes
They crave for more
Take their place with the corporate carnivours
Whoa! keep your focus
Cuz the day will come
When everyone will give account
For what they've done
Make me proud
Make me proud my son

You wanna walk with me?
Do ya? wanna walk with me?
Well if you love me
Then just love me
Don't you give me pretty words
Lay your life down at the altar
Let me see how serious you are

Look at this broken world
Look at my children, oh
Look at this broken world
Look at my children, oh
Cuz they're already gone
Sing to me the love song
Look up!
Say your prayers on the steps of the capital
Look up!
Say your prayers on your knees
Look up!
Say your prayers
Oh!
Look up!
Say your prayers

You want it to be like you always thought it would
But all you seem to accomplish is the opposite

You wanna walk with me?
Do ya? wanna walk with me?
Well if you love me
Then just love me
Don't you give me pretty words
Lend your life down at the altar
Let me see how serious you are

    This song is all about the people who call themselves christians but aren't necessarily christians. They just play the part but aren't actually feeling it. They say what they think god wants to hear even though god knows our hearts inside out. With that being said, just be honest with god. No "pretty words" unless you mean them
