lyrics

lyrics by Greg Lockwood
music by The Mines

I'm willing to die today...
I wish that's what I could say.
That I'm standing in harms way...
But the truth is I'm not.
I'm sitting in a chair going nowhere,
I hear the rumble of the action over there.
My cupboards are full. My senses are dull.
Life's a straight line.

I hear a better way.
In my heart I know there's gotta be one.
My fear, as dark as the night.
In my heart I know there's gotta be one.

I'm willing to die today...
The root of it all.
The choice is mine to make
To put up a wall.
And put the orchard over there,
the beach where grass is bare,
the sidewalk to the guesthouse just to show you that I care.
I'll send out the cards, to those I'll invite in,
Yes I'll be delighted to show you around.

I hear a better way.
In my heart I know there's gotta be one.
My fear, as dark as the night.
In my heart I know there's gotta be one.

Am I willing to die, die for justice
Willing to die, die for the future
Am I Willing to die, for the people that matter to you
Giving myself up to you, to the truth, to be used...

Am I willing to die today?
Just wondering what I would say.
If I'm standing in harms way.
My hope is I'll try!

I hear a better way.
In my heart I know there's gotta be one.
My fear, as dark as the night.
In my heart I know there's gotta be one.
