If All the World Were Right

“The Prodigal seeks moral high-ground and complains about “social injustice” and the perceived “woes of humanity”… He sees “the world” as the problem instead of the “world within” as the cause of his suffering… 

“This song is a bit of a deception… It reflects the way most people view the world… We tend to look to the external world as evidence to support our views of Life…or even self-worth…  The world is a perception… And we each have a choice in shaping this perception… I look to Nature as a guide as it seems to be the Truth of how the world actually works rather than a “made up” world projected onto us by the Herd… When we get really honest with ourselves, we find we are responsible for our lives…and that most of our pain and suffering is based on our own egos and positons – the “desire to be right” or a “victim.” When a person discovers Humility, one can never really be hurt again…let alone be angry… This is an extremely helpful thought that normally takes a bit of time to digest…”


If all the world were right
There’d be no monsters in my dreams at night
No phantoms in the air
Or famished faces on my stairs
 
If all the world were right
There’d be no shadows in my room tonight
If all the world were right
I’d know who to hold and who to fight 
 
If all the world were right there’d be no isolation or confusion
There’d be no darkness in my mind
I’d see beyond this grand illusion
Come to some distinct conclusion
And I might feel alright
If all the world were right
 
If all the world were right
All the cannons would fall quiet tonight
If all the world were right
There’d be no jokes to take my Life 
 
If all the world were right
There’d be no sadness just the shine of Life
There’d be no tears to stain my eyes
I’d see the world without conclusions
I’d see my fears as illusions
And I’d feel so light
If all the world were right
 
If all the world were right
There’d be no monsters in my sights tonight
No phantoms in my crosshairs
I’d see the bombs I make are my own cares
 
If all the world were right
I’d see no sadness just the shine of this Life
There’d be no tears to stain my eyes
I’d see beyond this grand illusion 
I’d look at you without conclusion
And I might feel alright
If all the world were right
 
I would feel alright if all the world were right
I might feel alright,
If I start with my own Life…
