Artist/Band: Newsboys
Lyrics for Song: Cornelius
Lyrics for Album: Thrive [2002]



And every generation's got

The fearless few who can't be bought

They don't take polls or look around

They act on truth, and then they stand their ground



Come up and see the world stripped bare

The free indeed

They breathe a rarified air

Yeah, they got spirit

Yeah, they got game

And some get christened

With a righteous sounding name



na na na na na na na na na

Cor-ne-li-us



And every generation knows

The doers do, the posers pose

'Cause every time the pop goes fizz

Another yes-man gets his



Come on and see the big man's boss

The mind clears out when you're taking up the cross

Yeah, his burden's easy

No, it don't chafe

It's God's safe harbour

Why play it safe?



na na na na na na na na na

Cor-ne-li-us



Core-strong like a centurion

I wanna be Cornelius

Core-strong like a centurion

I wanna be Cornelius

His kneel is real

His kneel is real

What rhymes with Cornelius?

Helium



The "cor" is before a kneel, a kneel

The "i" is an "e" in us, in us

He's ready to fight, but not to fuss

We like, we like Cornelius



And history proves the axiom

Surface skimmers choke on scum

Who's calling deep?

Who opens wide?

Who put the just in justified?



Check, check it out--the view you get

It's God's high-wire

There isn't any net

Show a little spirit

Show you got game

Show you know

(We know, we know)

You know what's in a name



na na na na na na na na na

Cor-ne-li-us



He's ready to fight,

But not to fuss

We like, we like

Cornelius



He isn't a wuss

He never wass

We like, we like

Cornelius
