Lyrics

Early morning, rising with the sun

Resting where the sky meets the earth

Feeling the first rays of sunlight reaching into my soul

Where they reinstate the sense of my own self-worth

If you’re not good, you’re bad

That’s far too black and white

Behold the glorious sun in all its radiance bright

It too at times is obscured by the thick blue veil of night

Still the moon and all the stars combines to reflect it’s
light.

And so it is that we are good

Thought we do not always do as we should

We lose track of right and wrong

And we’re not always standing strong

But still don’t you wanna believe

In things that eyes do not perceive

Like our light shining from within
That in a battle with our darkness can win

The gates of heaven open before me

As my heart is given wings and flies

Leaving all pretense behind, everything is crystal clear

Even all the worry of uncertainty subsides

They say that time will come for us to be reborn

Into the newness of unity that has been torn

Into duality, into “it’s us against them”

It’s from a place of fear that all our conflicts stem

We’re almost there, but not yet, still the stage is set

For the play we may enact according to our contract

That we may both you and I, with everybody in our home up
high

To awaken from our deep and long undisturbed

Though hardly perfect sleep

If to look is to know the grace, which you bestow

Upon those that you would raise

Into a kind and loving gaze

Then to look is to see everyone as good as they can be
