Name of Song: That horror before change

Can you handle it,
Are you willing to jump,
Can you fall just a little bit into it,
Then gravity might go on and do the rest.

Chorus
That hurdle we all come up against,
That horrible hurdle that comes before we change.
Does it seem we’re willing to jump on over it,
Or do we stay in the way we will get paid.
______

There’s agreements that keep us all locked in,
Now I’m supposed to’s that won’t upset the cart,
Constant betrayals of oneself that keep us living,
In a world that we all know has no way out.

Chorus
That hurdle we all come up against,
That horrible hurdle that comes before we change.
Does it seem we’re willing to jump on over it,
Or do we stay in the way we will get paid.

There are many ways and stories to continually justify,
There are deals we make to keep the scam alive,
But we all know that changing self must be continuous,
Because we know under the veil we barely thrive.

The real die hards of this “no change” are usually criminals,
Whether it’s sex, or shady deals or ruining lives,
They know who they are, although they lie to hide their sinning,
They can’t escape from all those knives slashing their insides.

Chorus
That hurdle we all come up against,
That horrible hurdle that comes before we change.
Does it seem we’re willing to jump on over it,
Or do we stay in the way we will get paid.

It’s not so hard to change oneself to a little better,
And I mean the things that really eat away at one’s soul,
We’ve gotta start a bit by bit, so it gets easier,
There’s a lot to change within ourselves, so many lives.

Chorus
That hurdle we all come up against,
That horrible hurdle that comes before we change.
Does it seem we’re willing to jump on over it,
Or do we stay in the way we will get paid.

And I mean the things that really eat away at one’s soul,

It’s not so hard to change oneself to a little better,
And I mean the things that really eat away at one’s soul,
We’ve gotta start a bit by bit, so it gets easier,
There’s a lot to change within ourselves, so many lives.
