From the recording Walk Among Giants


There is a place in every life when you need to learn,
Son, how to keep the spirit growing
When motivation’s dried up, and you have to stretch for something new
Risk gets your circulation flowing
Look to your heroes and the crossroads they all faced
‘Cause everyone has fears that must be chased
Just keep pressing on past the temptation of complacency
That isn’t the way you should be going
Walk among giants
Don’t walk out on your own
Keep walking and you’ll see you’re not alone
Everyone dreams, but the few who dare are far ahead
Of those who take life sure and slowly
So which route do you follow when you know it’s time to make that choice?
One side feels safe, the other holy
Look to your heroes, how they struggled just as much
Against the freeze that held them in its clutch
Till they learned to stare their self-intimidating demons down
And channel their greatness from the lowly
I’ve reached the place now in my life when I have to choose
So do I leap or do I waver?
And where then is the promise of new confidence that’s bound to lead
To some enlightenment timesaver?
I look to my heroes, trying to take my own advice
Much harder in the face of sacrifice
When you look at me, the chain of inspiration’s obvious
 I’ll teach you to jump, you’ll make me braver
