There are too many giants
Too many giants in this town
What happened to all of the martyrs?
Where have they gone?
There are too many men dancing around in their crowns
While the children are trying to teach them how
To lay their pride down

(Chorus)
How many times
Must we get lost in our lies?
Can we open our eyes now?
How many times
Must we get lost in our lies?
Can we open our eyes now?

Well don't waste a day
Don't waste a day to make change
A chance to make change love
Don't be a fool
Keep your eyes open
And then we'll
Guide all the blinding men

There are too many fighters
And too many fights in this town
What happened to poets and lovers?
Where have they gone?
There are too many beasts
Crooks and thieves in this town
Well the heroes they must have all died
And turned into some kind of ghost now

(Chorus) X2

Take your light and start a fire oooh
Take your light and start a fire oooh
A fire

(Chorus)

And how many times?
And how many times?

    I love this song...it's my favorite song by Wesley Jensen. I love the lyrics and how much truth they ring...how the world is becoming these days full of people who think they are bigger than they are, full thieves and hatred.

    I LOVE Christie DuPree's solo in this song...her voice is so beautiful just like her awesome sisters in the awseome band, Eisley. It's so eerie and lovely the way she sings that part.

    I think some of the lyrics (on top) are wrong but I'm not entirely sure!

    all in all...beautiful song with a beautiful message...

    take your light and start a fire! spread the love, spread the goodness because it does exist!

    General Commentthese lyrics are a little off...heres what they're supposed to be:

    "There are too many GIANTS
    Too many GIANTS in this town
    What happened to all of the martyrs?
    Where have they gone?
    There are too many men dancing around in their CROWNS
    While the children are trying to teach them how
    To lay their pride down"

    and...

    "Well don�t waste a day
    Don�t waste a day to make change
    A chance to make change love
    Don�t be a fool
    Keep your eyes open
    And then we'll
    GUIDE ALL the blinding men"

    and...

    "There are too many fighters
    And too many fights in this town
    What happened to poets and lovers?
    Where have they gone?
    There are too many BEASTS
    Crooks and thieves in this town
    Well the heroes they must have all died
    And turned into some kind of GHOSTS NOW"
