Optimist Lyrics

Counterparts – Optimist Lyrics

from album: The Current Will Carry Us (2011)
I never asked for anyone to listen
And I never asked for anyone to take my words to heart
I’ve let myself become a target based on nothing more than expression
I will not lie to others, and I won’t lie to myself
If you’re searching for safety you can find it somewhere else
And I won’t mind

I’ve never seen myself as optimistic
So this should come as no surprise
No one feels good forever
Not even me
But this doesn’t give us an excuse to become useless like the rest
We will turn our hatred into something to be proud of
We will make life worth living
