take a step back, cuz the next step’s violence.
have patience. we have truth and they have nonsense.
have confidence. they won’t debate cuz they know we’ll stomp them.
my true friends: trust that truth in Scripture will stop them.
c’mon, tell ‘em, Melanchthon.

we are called to renounce possessions.
we are called to pronounce confessions.
search your heart and you’ll see it’s true:
we can’t recant, gotta see this through.

RUN AND TELL THAT (run and tell that from the mountaintops)
RUN AND TELL THAT (run and run 'til the other shoe drops)
RUN AND TELL THAT (sing that shout that spread that word)
RUN AND TELL THAT (don’t you stop 'til the devil’s heard)

the more they threaten, the more I’m sure
that our cause is just, and our logic pure.
every time that they set a letter loose,
I can’t help but think of Jan Hus.
he tangled with Rome a hundred years ago,
they killed him slow in a public show.
still I know my goal in my soul, so sing it, bro:

search your heart and you'll see it's true:
we can't recant, gotta see this through.

RUN AND TELL THAT (press that print that see it through)
RUN AND TELL THAT (give your life if you have to)

I’m not afraid to die.
I’ve made my peace, so pray for me.
