Take down your defenses
Like you've taken off your clothes
It's such a glorious insurrection
Not to hold your secrets close

What's the use in counting errors
Or the help in counting sheep
I don't intend to live my whole life out
Just to find I was asleep

It's not the things I've gone and done, I'll regret or be ashamed
But the things I did not say or do, just because I was afraid.

How mysterious and wondrous
The strange circling of the mind
And that I can see as far ahead of me
As I can see behind
Hindsight is always 20/20
Yet, we'll see what we want see
And I used to pray for wisdomp
Now I know just what that means

It's not the things I've gone and done, I'll regret or be ashamed
But the things I did not say or do, just because I was afraid.

I'm learning to forgive
And I relearn it everyday
Every time I stoop to gather stones
I Straighten up and walk away.

I don't have another message
I don't have anything to sell
And there are no easy answers
As far as I can tell
But I don't believe that Jesus was crazy
Or that it is Mohammad's fault
When something good can get so twisted
Till there's no semblance at all

It's not the things I've gone and done, I'll regret or be ashamed
But the things I did not say or do, just because I was afraid.

Just because the odds are bad
Doesn't mean you shouldn't risk
Don't believe it will not happen
Just because it hasn't happen yet
