There Is More Good In This World Than Bad

from RESEMBLING A STAR by Stephen Bard



I don’t know what to say
About what I saw today on the television
Man the craziest decision for her to leave her kids behind
And what is most obscene is to exploit this kind of mind
You can have your fifteen too
Seems all you gotta do is go stark raving mad
There is more good in this world than bad

Now all the politicians say it’s the beginning of a brighter day
How dark is it gonna end?
As all these greedy hawks descend into oily reservoirs
When all is said and done, we can’t go without our cars
The mother ravaged by the son – The damage now is done
And the ones in charge seem glad
There is more good in this world than bad

In case of attack
Man you’ve got to watch your back in such an insecure age
See a father pours his rage into a child’s open heart
Don’t all the bastards say you need to get ‘em from the start?
‘Cause love cannot endure
When someone’s always making sure that hate is all you’ve ever had
There is more good in this world than bad

My father was a fireman
He went right into the frying pan
Trying to keep other people safe
Risking life and limb and faith into the fiery unknown
Now people, I was never that brave and now I’m on my own
Maybe love like that can save us
I know it sounds outrageous but I still hear my dad
Saying, “Son, there is more good in this world than bad.”
