Live Inside The Light

IMG_4455.jpg

It's easier to blame someone,
Than admit that you've done wrong,
It's easier to criticize,
Than it is to sing the song,
And it's easier to lay down and rest,
When the road gets too long,
But that won't get you anywhere,
Anywhere that you belong.

No.

It's easier to complain about,
Than to clean up the pollution,
It's easier to fall in line,
Than to fight the institution,
It's easier to find ten problems,
Than to find just one solution,
And it's easier to leave,
Than to lead a revolution.
Yes, it's easier to leave,
Than to lead a revolution.

But life isn't easy,
But it gets better if you try,
You can power through this darkness,
If you hold your head up high,
Yeah, life may not be easy,
But it'll get better when you try,
It’s up to you, but if you power through,
Then you can live inside the light,
Live inside the light.

It's easier to hide away,
Than to stand for what is right, 
It's easier to watch the birds,
Than to let your wings take flight,
It's easier to bark all day,
Than to show the world your bite,
And it's easy to let fear divide,
Than to join up and unite. 

But life isn't easy,
But it gets better when we try,
We can power through the darkness,
If we hold our heads up high,
Yeah, life may not be easy,
But it will get better when we try,
It's up to us, so if we build trust,
Then we can live inside the light.
Live inside the light. 

So when it comes time,
To do what is easy,
Or what is right,
I hope you choose it freely,
Yeah when it comes time,
To leave,
Or to lead that revolution,
I hope you get up on your feet,

And say this may not be easy,
But it’ll get better when I try,
I can power through this darkness,
If I hold my head up high,
Yeah life may not be easy,
But it will get better when I try,
It's up to me,
So if I believe,
Then I,
Can live inside the light,
Live inside the light,
I wanna live, 
Inside the light.
