about

Song by Si Kahn

lyrics

You must know someone like him, he was tall and strong and lean

With a body like a greyhound and a mind so sharp and keen

But his heart just like a laurel grew twisted around itself

Till almost everything he did brought pain to someone else



It’s not just what you’re born with, it’s what you choose to be
I
t’s not how big your share is, it’s how much you can share

And it’s not the fights you dream of but those you really fought

It’s not just what you’re given, it’s what you do with what you’ve got



And what’s the use of two strong legs if you only run away

And what use is the finest voice if you’ve nothing good to say
What good is strength and muscle if you only push and shove

And what’s the use of two good ears if you can’t hear those you love



Between those who use their neighbours and those who use the cane

Between those in constant power and those in constant pain

Between those who run to evil and those who cannot run

Tell me which ones are the cripples and which ones touch the sun
