often things we do work against what's right, I guess it's all that way often ways we work make us work twice more, as our troubles stay is there any hope / is there any way? is there any hope / is there any way? often I don't know where the righteous went, or were they led astray? often I do wish that my two hands were enough to change is there any hope / is there any way? is there any hope / is there any way? often justice is bought by shallow men, just for profit's sake what is wealth worth to any man, ashamed of his own ways?

bright as the day dark as the night a cool wind blows over me dead as what's right blind as a need an old man knows what you'll see hope rides alone hope rides alone while all the men go chasing greed love with all your soul love with all your soul a full heart gives all you need bright as the day dark as the night a cool wind blows over me

out in the open out in the plains out in the prairies where the working men say: oh do I try, oh do I pray but every single day I carry new weight up in the mountains up in the trees up in branches where the birds do sing: oh do I try, oh do I pray but the nests that we build the wind takes away out in the water out in the sea out in waves where you live by your needs: oh do I try, oh do I pray but all of these currents they pull as they change out in the night out in the dark out in the place where you are who you are oh do I try, oh do I pray but as soon as we wake life takes us away up in the mountains out on the sea climbing to the top of an old fir tree oh do I know, oh do I say all that we've built will soon pass away
