"The Light That Has Lighted The World" as written by and George Harrison....
I've heard how some people, have said
That I've changed
That I'm not what I was
How it really is a shame
The thoughts in their heads,
Manifest on their brow
Like bad scars from ill feelings
They themselves arouse
So hateful of anyone that is happy
Or 'free'
They live all their lives,
Without looking to see
The light that has lighted the world

It's funny how people, just won't
Accept change
As if nature itself - they'd prefer
Re-arranged
So hard to move on
When you're down in a hole
Where there's so little chance,
To experience soul

I'm grateful to anyone,
That is happy or 'free'
For giving me hope
While I'm looking to see

The light that has lighted the world

    My InterpretationI've heard how some people, have said
    that I've changed
    That I'm not what I was
    How it really is a shame
    The thoughts in their heads,
    Manifest on their brow
    Like bad scars from ill feelings
    they themselves arouse
    So hateful of anyone that is happy
    or 'free'
    [George harrison is enlightened that material goods do not bring true happiness. While he is "free" from this material world, people around him do not understand his actions that reflect this freedom. Yet because he is happy and "free", people who are envious turn hateful for what they do not have (true happiness).

    They live all their lives,
    without looking to see
    The light that has lighted the world
    [Not sure what light refers to. God maybe?]
