  • "Easier Done Than Said."

    Mother raised me to believe there is one god alone
    but I find in my heart that I've got more than a dozen
    Each one's got a name, its own ranks and requirements
    Some tell me to keep up, while others try to keep me down
    Some demand I be strong, only never face-to-face
    while others remain true and wait 'til I've fallen apart

    Loyalties lie.

    It's a struggle inside each of us all - I'm not the only one
    It's said getting by in this life has always been easier said than done
    but selling out for bread is easier done than said
    can't get ahead - can't find my way
    there ain't no in - there ain't no out
    can't find a way to make do without
    Knowing that you're good as dead is easier done that said

    I thought I worshipped love and I prayed for beauty
    to come along my way and give this life a meaning
    'cause I traded out mine to kneel beneath the altar
    of the only place that I have left to go these days
    We'll be leasing out ourselves as we live to keep alive
    And this is all that's left of too many years ahead

    Loyalties lie.

    Now it comes the time when I will choose for myself,
    though nothing that remains is by my design
    We've bargained for our souls and we've sold them back
    for pennies on the dollar - that's if they ever pay
    We've dealt away our dreams with nothing left to sell
    You give away your life; in return, you get to give it away.

    It's a struggle inside each of us all - I'm not the only one
    It's said getting by in this life has always been easier said than done
    but selling out for bread is easier done than said
    can't get ahead - can't find my way
    there ain't no in - there ain't no out
    can't find a way to make do without
    Knowing that you're good as dead is easier done that said

    Interesting lyrical ideas. Do you have a tune in mind?
