Life may be a series of bad decisions
And even looking back I still don't have the vision
To see 20/20
But I know many love me
Because love guides my choices
And I don't mind the voices
Being guided by my mind is pointless
Because the logic is circular
And the knowledge won't work with hurt
My heart doesn't bleed with greed
But I do see the need
To hang onto love no matter the situation
I can't add to my aggravation
By letting my mind guide me
Blindly
Until I find the
Way back
Using the same facts
To choose a different road
Or replaying the same episode
Until it's getting old
Life's beyond my control
So why should I try to obtain the unattainable
That kind of luck is unsustainable
I'd rather not complain at all
That's why I can laugh at what could break my spirits
Once I understand, I have no need to fear it
That's why I've spent 16 years writing lyrics
They help me know who I am
So I don't grow in quicksand
I don't want to be island man
Or rule with an iron hand
I've take off my gloves, giving love to the entire land
I don't want to get higher than
Those close to me
Being equal is how life's supposed to be
One day I hope that we
Can complete the union
Because I don't believe it's all gloom and
Doom and
Living in ruins
That's why my decisions aren't just for me
I know what I want to see

Chorus: I choose to focus on the positive
Because I don't have long to live
And I want to live while I'm alive
That's why I'll love and give until I die

I've been ridiculed by countless people
They'd rather look down than see me as an equal
I've screwed up
But so what
Sometimes life is so tough
That solving one problem causes many others
Instead of beating people down we need to live as lovers
I vow not to judge because it's not my place
I won't condemn someone based on their mistakes
It's intentions that matter to me
As I'm ascending a ladder to see
The world from a view not normally my own
That's why I'm not lonely when I'm alone

Chorus:

Recently I changed my mind
And let it guide
My decisions
It started affecting how I was living
It focused on the negative
And I had to beg to give
Now my heart is back
In lack
Of control
And there's no hole
In my soul

Chorus:
