Light Shines On
(c) 2011

I can’t be trusted with the time I’ve been given
It’s a crime to rely on me
To follow dreams you set for me

If I change the way I do things
Speak my mind and give opinions
Would you love me anyway?

Call the press, notify the troops
I’m changing colors
Something’s happening to all I know
Look into these tortured eyes
Can you see them reaching
We surrender on the outside, but
Our light shines on

The road before me may be hard
But staying put is harder, than I could ever guess

If I fight what’s imposed upon me
Live my dreams and be the best I can be
That might mean we disagree

Call the press, notify the troops
I’m changing colors
Something’s happening to all I know
Look into these tortured eyes
Can you see them reaching
We surrender on the outside, but
Our light shines on

What’s wrong or right is not the question
But an endless old distraction

Call the press, notify the troops
I’m changing colors
Something’s happening to all I know
Look into these tortured eyes
Can you see them reaching
We surrender on the outside, but
Our light shines on
