Everybody loves a rose
But will you be thankful for the thorns?
Love is easy when you're loved
But do you curse another when you're alone
(Chorus) Oh, I give my life to you so I can take it back again
Oh, I stand solid while the paradigm is shifting
You say live and let live
But people are dying everyday
And you say what I don't know wont hurt me
But if what I do not know
Is the very thing I need
Then I say....
Humanity sees truth through a shattered window pane
That blocks the view, and plants the seed
So we draw the curtains to a close but I say
That the sun can still shine
behind a closed mind
And sticks and stones do hurt
When tossed from the tongue of mankind
Oh, oh I give my life to you so I can take it back again
Paradigm is shifting, is shifting.......away, away......
