Things Aren't So Bad

from For An Empty Theater by Erik Ritland

lyrics

So many ways to say things today
But never less to say
So many ways to live life with love
But it's easier to hate

Why are you so angry all the time?
I promise things aren't so bad

So many things there are to learn
So much life to live
There is no need to close yourself off
Take when you can give

Why are you so angry all the time?
I promise things aren't so bad

So much freedom for everyone
To make their dreams reality

There is a world at our fingertips
But it isn't real
It amplifies the worst in ourselves
Until we forget how to feel

Why are you so angry all the time?
I promise things aren't so bad
I promise things aren't so bad
