06. The Easy Way

JavaBird
by Jerry Akin

       
Lyrics:

It was not enough for you to stay within your place
You had to first come down among us here and wear a face.
You had to taste the pain and sorrows that we mortals bare
So you could sympathetically listen to our prayers.
And you could have always walked away, if you wanted to, but you knew you had a role to play and you would see it through,
For the weight of the world was on you.

CHORUS:
You couldnít do it the easy way
Your love was too big and real.
You knew that this was the only way
For you to convey the way you feel.
To give us life, you sacrificed,
You laid yours on the line,
And you left the easy way behind.

It was not enough for you to die a quiet death,
And slip away so easily and draw a final breath.
You had to taste that bitter, poison fruit
And break like bread
And let your body bleed and bleed from hands and feet and head.
And you could have always walked away, if you wanted to, but you knew you had a role to play and you would see it through,
For the weight of the world was on you.

(Repeat Chorus)

It was not enough for you to stay beneath the rocks while your mortal body rots and time keeps ticking on its morbid clocks.
You had to snatch away the key to life again from the reaperís hand, and shatter chains and walls and plans of evil lords and wicked men.
