Lyrics

Stumbling through the darkness
As I fumble for the switch
Working on my wiring
Feeling fed up with my glitch

Then I try too hard to fix it
And it blows up in my face
And I catch hell from my critics
I could use a little grace

Now I’m calling on my better self
To lead me through this moment
I’m calling on my better self
To lead me through this moment
Can you start me on the path
To what I know is right?
Can you lead me to the light?

Even when the light is shining
I’m surrounded in a fog
I can’t find the silver lining
Trudging through a muddy slog

Part of me cries, "Let's get going"
Part of me sighs, "It’s no use"
A solution isn’t showing
I could use some help to choose

Now I’m calling on my better self
To lead me through this moment
I’m calling on my better self
To lead me through this moment
Can you start me on the path
To what I know is right?
Can you lead me to the light?

My better self arises
When I’m open and aware
He sees me through a crisis
Not with judgment but with care

Now I’m calling on my better self
To lead me through this moment
I’m calling on my better self
To lead me through this moment
Can you start me on the path
To what I know is right?
Can you lead me to the light?
