Is this the age of the thunder and rage?
Can you feel the ground move round your feet?
If you take one step closer it will lead to another.
The crossroads above is where we meet.
I shout out for shelter.  I need you for something.
The whole world's out they're all on the street.
Control yourself. "Love is all you need."
Control yourself in your eyes.
 
Sanctify Yourself.  Sanctify.
Be a part of me.  Sanctify.
Sanctify Yourself.  Sanctify.
Sanctify Yourself.
Set yourself free.
 
In pictures of living; in bloodshot vision.
Sweet miracles and strange circumstances.
I see the sun up, the showdown, the cool winds that blow down
On the big beat the life long romance is.
You've got a gun in your hand; you're making self plans.
Stay with me all through the night.
Control yourself.  Love is all you need.
Control yourself.  Open up your heart.
 
Sanctify Yourself.  Sanctify.
Be a part of me.  Sanctify.
Sanctify Yourself.  Sanctify.
Sanctify Yourself.
Set yourself free.
 
You can't stop the world for a boy or a girl.
Sweet victims of poor circumstances.
But you can pour back the love, sweeping down
From above, giving hope and making more chances.
Well, I hope and I pray that maybe someday
You'll come back down here and show me the way.
Control yourself.  Love is all you need.
Control yourself.  Open up your heart.
 
Sanctify Yourself.  Sanctify.
Be a part of me.  Sanctify.
Sanctify Yourself.  Sanctify.
Sanctify Yourself.
Set yourself free.
 
Open up your heart. Sanctify Yourself.  
Sanctify.  Sanctify Yourself.
Open up your heart. Sanctify Yourself.  
Sanctify.  Sanctify Yourself.
Open up your heart. Sanctify Yourself.  
Sanctify.  Sanctify Yourself.
Open up your heart. Sanctify Yourself.  
Sanctify.  Sanctify Yourself.
