Chesterton's Last Words

from For An Empty Theater by Erik Ritland

/

lyrics

Why choose to be ugly when you can be beautiful
Who would trade their smile for a scowl
It’s not so bad

There’s a choice between light and dark
Everyone must choose his side

You may say that there are shades of gray
And you are right
But there cannot be a gray at all
Without black and white

There's a choice between light and dark
Everyone must choose his side

The only way
To move ahead
Is to love like a child

Aren't you glad that you have every day that you’re alive
It is not always the easiest
But it’s worth the fight

There's a choice between light and dark
Everyone must choose his side
