Text heard on Sample:
Nazarene: We dance to give thanks
                 We dance towards the light

Alleluia!

Nazarene: Next I said this:

I will play the pipe if you will dance,
I will mourn if you will mourn with me.

Nazarene: I said Amen.

The zodiac knows our song,
The planets dance in a ring, like us.

Nazarene: I said Amen.

The universe sings our hymn, it dances our dance.
Everyone must dance or live in darkness.

Nazarene: I said Amen.

We gave him back Amen.

Alleluia!
