At first you thought us men but you were mistaken
Tried to call us gods but the name was taken
Overcame but we still have scars
Yeah the time is now and the time is ours

I wouldn't ask your king
Cause you can teach a dog anything
Your pecking order wasn't built to last
And now the winds of change are coming in fast

One more convert
Another voice is better heard
One more inside us
Pick up the pace cause we are the righteous

We are the righteous
You can tag along but you'll do despite us
We are the righteous
Bring on the meek, bring on the pious

You know you shouldn't fret about the path we're taking
After all it's not your rules we're breaking
Our final vision is a masterpiece
And what matters to you does not matter to me

Don't look for empathy
We locked it up and threw away the king
I wouldn't dare suggest a thing to do
When a mediocre choice still reflects upon you

One more convert
Another voice is better heard
One more inside us
Pick up the pace cause we are the righteous

We are the righteous
You can tag along but you'll do despite us
We are the righteous
Bring on the meek, bring on the pious

Yeah, we are the righteous
Cause we're never wrong there's no point to fight us
Yeah, we are the righteous
Think you stand a chance then dare to try us

We are the righteous
You can tag along but you'll do despite us
We are the righteous
Bring on the meek, bring on the pious
