Crystal Clear (Song Lyrics)

These are some lyrics and a recording of one of my more recent songs. The recording ain't so great, I'm still working things out in the song. Here's the recording Crystal Clear

Crystal Clear
------------

if everything was crystal clear
wouldnt life be sweet and dear
if everything was crystal clear
noone would have to shed a tear
but nothing is just as it was
a blurry window to the future near
a constant change hanging in the air
life is just one giant mirror

trying to make it through this life
trying to be happy in a sea of discontent
trying to make it to the top
trying to succeed in the face of all this failure

if everything were laid out for you
oh how it would make life so easy
if everything was planned out for you
oh how easy it would be to simply follow
but all of life requires work
a little effort, a little might
just don't give up, fight the fight
and in the end, you'll soon find

starting to make it through this life
starting to be happy in a sea of discontent
starting to make it to the top
starting to succeed in the face of all this failure

you have everything you ever wanted
and yet, that's still not enough
you have everything you ever wanted
and still inside you feel an empty hole
material things are a waste of time
once you have the best, another appears
you'll never be on top, just really close
and the facts settle in and soon you are

dying now that you've made it through this life
dying of discontent in a sea of happiness
dying up here, sitting at the top
dying like a failure in the face of your success

failing to make it through this life
