i was told to light the world and that
i was to be a city on a hill.
(then i could see the whole world)
but never be apart of it…

then i'd live in a glass house
(everyone could see me, too)

…but i think it's time to stop being afraid;
faith can light the universe in ways that not even
thomas edison could fathom.

(and he did light the world)

but faith, or the founder of faith
lit the stars and gave flame to the sun
thomas edison only lit the world
(maybe that's why we call the founder of faith
incomprehensible)

and maybe that's why we should be unafraid
and change the world.

(one valley at a time.)
