Song Description

The song is about recognizing how taking the path of least resistnace, as a life choice, ultimately leads to a life that isn't just not worth living; rather, it leads to a life that hasn't really been lived at all. The song also takes the position that to

Lyrics

I sit and I look out upon the wreckage of my life
The shards of broken promise, the bits of compromise
Tossed around and battered by the winds of fear
Now lying here all scattered in a field of dirt and tears

Cause the road that I traveled has been a road to despair
Oh the path of least resistance leads nowhere

I cry about the love I might have had, had I not run
The battles that I should have fought, the glory to be won
But I'd lock away the passion and wrap myself in doubt
To walk the path of least resistance to take the easy way out

Scared to death of living, I'd never take the risk
But now I'm afraid to die without ever having lived

Now the road I will travel leads to joy or despair
But the path of least resistance leads nowhere
And though I will stumble and though I may fall
The path of least resistance leads nowhere at all

Ironic how it takes so many years to realize
That wisdom only comes to one who sees through child's eyes
And even though I cannot know what lies beyond the hill
Still a tiny little baby step sure beats standing still... and I will... oh...

Stand on up to move ahead and get on living life
Cause I decided I won't go quiet into that long good night

And though I will stumble and though I may fall
The path of least resistance leads nowhere at all
Leads nowhere, leads nowhere, leads nowhere at all
Oh the path of least resistance leads nowhere at all
