Why Not?

Why not aim for higher ground

Why not make a joyful sound
Why not turn your ship around
You've got nothing to lose, so why not

 

I know a man spent his whole life span
Searching for the next big plan
The latest, greatest sacred cow
When all you really have is the here and now

 

Why not aim for higher ground
Why not make a joyful sound
Why not turn your ship around
You've got nothing to lose, so why not

 

I know a man weighed down by care
Searching for a world out there
To live his hopes and hide his fears
But the only place you got is one right here

 

Why not aim for higher ground
Why not make a joyful sound
Why not turn your ship around
You've got nothing to lose, so why not

 

I know a man who understood
All this wanting, it does no good
You get that thing that you need so much
Along the way you lose your human touch
 
Why not aim for higher ground
Why not make a joyful sound
Why not turn your ship around
You've got nothing to lose, so why not
