lyrics

STANDING ON THE ROCK

It’s a constant spin
But you fall right in
Find your shoes
Upon the shelf
And you follow
The road
With a secret code
That leads you
To yourself
Can you hear
That lovely sound
Coming from the
Great highway
Oh it’s how it’s done
Here beneath the sun
Standing on the rock
This way

It’s an easy walk
it’s a heavy talk
And some things
That you don’t know
But a steady mind
Will seek and find
And play it as you go
Cause it’s everyone
Here beneath the sun
Makes it up
Along the way
On an easy walk
And a heavy talk
Standing on the rock
This way

When it gets real rough
Can you stand real tough
When the push
It comes to shove
And the shine gets dull
And you’re vulnerable 
And you cannot
Feel the love
Can you hear
That lovely sound 
Coming from the
Great highway
When the going’s rough
Can you stand real tough
Standing on the rock
This way

The meaning of the mission
Is not to hesitate
You show some
kind of kindness
And shutter out the hate
I’m going up the mountain
And howl at the moon
Be thankful that
I’m earthbound
Cause farewell
Comes too soon

It’s a rolling pride
You can feel inside
As you move from
Here to there
Got the universe
Inside your purse
And a fortune in the air
Can you hear
That lovely sound 
Coming from the
Great highway
It’s a kind of pride
That you feel inside
Standing on the rock
This way.

Do you lie awake
Do you have more cake
Has the world been
Called unfair
Breathe in you’re born
Breathe out you’re gone
Do you think you
Got your share
No there's never need
for more greed
We’ve enough to
Last the day
Hope you understand
Well i think you can
Standing on the rock
This way
