Traveling down a different road
Trying hard to leave the load
We take it there but we can't let go
It's so hard to lay it down

Back in Eden we were tried
Found ourselves dissatisfied
Seeking wisdom that she denied
Trying hard to lay it down

Lay it down, brother,lay it down
It's so hard to lay it down

Hide in me,confide in me
Don't you think it's time to be
Everything we tried to be
You and me should lay it down

Speak to me, be unashamed
There's no time for playing games
After all we're all the same
Just trying hard to lay it down

Lay it down, brother,lay it down
It's so hard to lay it down

Lay it down, brother,lay it down
It's so hard to lay it down

Wish my words could make it well
Wish that I might break the shell
Take us from our self-made well
Find a way to lay it down

Burdened by the things I've learned
Hurting cause I'm too concerned
Nonetheless I confess I yearn
To find a way to lay it down

Lay it down, lay it down
It's so hard to lay it down

Lay it down, lay it down
It's so hard to lay it down

Lay it down, lay it down
It's so hard... to lay it... down
