LYRICS

It’s easy to be in opposition

And it’s easy to see enough things that ain’t right

And it’s to point the finger of blame

And it’s easy to feel the virtue having never played the game

But there’s good days and bad days

And there will be always

Good news and bad news everywhere you go

Good people and bad ones, but in the balance

You can see that it’s easy

Take a look at the bigger picture

Take some time on the other side

The truth you’ll find, if you’ll accept it

Is it’s a good time to be alive, even if it ain’t perfect

It’s easy to think and walk and talk in circles

And it’s easy to shout when you don’t say anything

And it’s easy to stay, always the same

And it’s to feel the bravery of being out of range

Take a look at the bigger picture

Take some time on the other side

The truth you’ll find, if you’ll accept it

Is it’s a good time to be alive, even if it ain’t perfect

There’s good days and bad days

And there will be always

Good news and bad news everywhere you go

Good people and bad ones, but in the balance

You can see that it’s easy
