Some are reachin' few are there
Want to reign from a hero's chair
Some are scared to fly so high
Well this is how we have to try

Have no envy and no fear
Have no envy and no fear

Brother brother we all see
Your hiding out so painfully
See yourself come out to play
A lover's rain will wash away

Your envy and your fear
So have no envy and no fear

When your sister turns to leave
Only when she's most in need
Take away the cause of pain
By showing her we're all the same

Have no envy and no fear
Have no envy and no fear

Every day we try to find
Search our hearts and in our minds
The place we used to call our home
Can't be found when we're alone

So have no envy and no fear
Have no envy and no fear

    General CommentI actually went to a josh radin concert and he said this songs is about when he first moved to LA and joined a group of emerging song writers and musicians. Ultimately it describes his personal journey as he comes to evolve into the person he is today.

    General Commentthis song is so pure.
    it's a beautiful way of putting things in perspective.
    and it's a great motto.

    General Commentthe first time i heard this song, these lyrics were the ones that spoke to me most:

    "Brother brother we all see
    You're hiding out so painfully
    See yourself come out to play"

    and

    "When your sister turns to leave
    Only when she's most in need
    Take away the cause of pain
    By showing her we're all the same "

    they made me think about how people who are gay feel the need to hide the truth from people, for the fear of being criticized, and also envy towards the "normal" people who have absolutely nothing to worry about... :/

    General Commenti agree with ilvdv about those two stanzas, even if it isnt what he actually meant when he wrote it. but interpretation is extremely versitile.
    either way, it adds to the overall message
