      The original angels need this right now. We have lost our way. Most have completely forgotten who we are..... I pray that this whole album and movie awakes millions. Nothing is no longer hidden. We are the first and the last.

        This shouldn’t be a song in this film. Beyoncé ruined this whole movie for me tbh.
