"Stand" as written by and John C. Popper....
Stand
Stand and walk
Tragedy
Is cheap and so is talk
Decision
Yours to make what will you do
In the end
It comes back to you
Cause it's a long, way to fall

Thunder
Don't scare me at all
Lightning
Well just a little
Pressure
It ain't worth a dime
And your wounds
They'll all heal in time

Cause it's a long, way to fall

The answers are getting harder
The answers are getting harder
The answers are getting harder
(If an answer comes to those who pray)
The answers are getting harder
(If an answer comes to those who pray)
The answers are getting harder
(If an answer comes to those who pray)

The answers are getting harder and harder
And there ain't no way to bargain or to barter
But if you've got the angst or the ardor
You might faint from the fight but you're gonna find it
For every challenge could have paradise behind it
And if you accept what you have lost and you stand tall
You might just get it back and you can get it all
So now you know why it's a long way to fall
Yeah cause it's a long way to fall

Cause it's a long, way to fall

Stand
Stand and walk
Stand

    General CommentI don't know what the song means, but the buildup in the "The answers are getting harder.." part is great, the reason I love the song.

    General Commentthis song was written after john popper had his motorcycle accident. it's about how everything seemed hopeless... he was fat, he couldn't walk, and everything around him sucked... but because he was optimistic, he got everything back.

    sure, if you don't succeed you'd lose a lot, but it's worth it because it's possible to get everything back. that's what this song is about.

    but i agree, it's an amazing song.

    General CommentJohn has a motor cycle?... OH YEEEEEEeaaaahhh... I knew that... And they prefer the term "obese", not "fat".
