[X4 then to Chorus]
It's Jesus' blood flowing in my veins
And we don't care if you think we are insane.
We're on another level, we march to a different beat.
"Freak, freak" they shout at us in the street.
I'd take a bullet for my brother or my King,
Lay down my rights, shake up mediocrity.
And I would give up my life wreckless for the poor and oppressed.
We couldn't care less about the way we are dressed.
I'm obsessed with this fire passion burning in my chest.
The world cannot ever hold us down;
Radical holiness marks us from the crowd.
Come on, let's dream dreams.
We could be the ones to set the nations free!
Revival generation, come on,
Revival generation - that's me.

We are living for revival, start with me
Set apart to raise the standard, called to purity
Jesus be our true ambition; everything for you

There's a vision in us burning, the time has come
For the power of Your Kingdom, to see Your will done
And the world will not contain this; fire in our hearts, fire in our hearts

Our generation, can see a nation changed
For Your glory, turn us around set us apart
Your liberation, will see a nation changed
For Your Kingdom we cry 'freedom'


You have spoken You have promised, we believe
Signs and wonders, love and mercy will change society
Could we see it in our lifetime; greater things to come, greater things to come

Rap
It's Jesus blood flowing in my veins
And we don't care if you think we are insane
We're on another level, we march to a different beat
"Freak freak" they shout at us in the street
I’d take a bullet for my brother or my king
Lay down my rights shake up mediocrity
And I would give up my life wreckless for the poor and oppressed
We couldn't care less about the way we are dressed
I’m obsessed with this fire passion burning in my chest.
The world cannot ever hold us down radical holiness marks us from the crowd
Come on, let's dream dreams.
We could be the ones to set the nations free
Revival generation, Come on
Revival generation that's me
