    What is the cost of brighter days?
    Sun scorching you with violent rays
    Bask in clear skies ever so blue
    Watch dark clouds ruin your afternoon

    Breathe in everything that you can
    Feel life grip you with its outstretched hand
    Sail in oceans skewered with rebirth
    But never backtrack to see how much you're worth

    Rainy days will come and go
    And mystic legends
    won't leave much room to grow
    Life is nothing but a balance beam
    Too much of anything is more than you need

    Beneath the canyons in the valley below
    Beams of light slip through wet cottonballs to show
    Shadows of the towering cliffs above
    Exposing a better place, built on love

    Stroll through the garden of regret
    Ponder all of the things you didn't get
    Bow your gastful head in sorrow
    forget to harvest what you need for tommorrow

    As you pass by the rapidly rising river
    Don't for a minute stop to shake or shiver
    Swim fiercely around the treacherous driftwood
    Floating by like the ranks of man, doing no good

    Do not fear the hollows
    After you fall
    You always get up again
    Flee from all that is shallow
    Fill your glass half full
    Live out your moment of zen
