Name of Song: It’s easier to be honest

Fear can drive your actions,
Is telling the truth now safe,
Is it OK to just open up
or feel collapsing space.

We know that collapsing feeling,
Where you feel you’re trapped within,
That sinking feeling bathed in dread,
Made of real and imagined sin.

It’s easier to be honest,
But sometimes hard at first,
Proud of who you are demands,
you don’t go in reverse.

Chorus
Honesty is hard these days,
Our tolerance almost gone,
It didn’t used to be like that,
Now programmed dusk to dawn.
That human part of people,
Seems less and less to say,
Too many ways to turn one’s head
and look the other way.

Pick your friends so wisely,
The one’s that make it safe,
Then you know it’s safe to tell

‘cause they never leave a trace.
