Common Man

COMMON MAN - Written by Carroll Bryant 


The meaning of life isn't in the questions
Never in the answers 
Only suggestions
The secrets passed down through time
Isn't in the travels 
Forwards or backwards
Or living to be hassled 

They are in the stars 
They are in the hearts of all of them
We may not understand
I know I am a common man

A fleeing asteroid makes us paranoid
The power of love can be the power of calm
We are frightened of them
Because we don't understand
Their presence could mark the end 
To the common man

Everything is about the action
The power of love and the power of satisfaction
The grace of god 
Oh lord 
Isn't in the religion
Isn't living there anymore

I'm just a common man

Heaven or hell
It's a rebellion 
Loudly they're yelling for peace
We're just sitting here chilling
On a planet that's spinning

I suppose things could be worse

The meaning of life isn't in the questions
Never in the answers 
Only suggestions
The secrets passed down through time
Isn't in the travels 
Forwards or backwards
Or living to be hassled 

They are in the stars 
They are in the hearts of all of them
We may not understand
I know I am a common man

And I've had enough of this

They live in the stars 
They have a heart 
Too

I am a common man
