The Only Way Out (2010)

You want to run
You want to hide
To wish the world away.
Take all the hurt
Take all the pain
I pray you take it all away
You pray for calm
You pray for peace
You pray for silence for a change
The more you fight and
the more you resist
The quicker you learn that you cannot start
at the beginning
and jump to the end
Every beginning has a middle and
every end has a beginning so
every middle must be conquered
To get to the end
Stop running
Stop hiding
Stop wishing the world away
Calm will come
Peace will come
and when Silence finally comes you realize
That escaping was never an option
That you needed to work it through
That there was never an “easy out”
and that the only way out was through
