lyrics

you can ask the pilot
if he can pull the plane out of a dive
and he will tell you every time
we are lucky just to fly

and we should be grateful
to be like the birds
even they fall from the sky sometimes
we should be grateful
to be like the birds
spread your wings and cast your fears aside

and you can ask the surgeon
if he can pry your heart out of your mind
and he will tell you with dry eyes
there’s a reason they’re entwined

and you should be grateful
to feel so much
most people just bury it inside
you should be grateful
to be on this course
where reason and empathy collide

and you can ask the preacher
if he can pull the man out of his slide
and he will tell you with bright eyes
man's a victim of his pride

we should be grateful
to just be alive
dig your heels in, get through the day
we should be grateful
to just be alive
your armor’s heavy, but try to be brave
