    Given the light, Give it some truth
    Given the maybe, Give it some proof
    This body is cleaner, I'm one to behold
    My truth was uncovered, Untainted and told
    I loathed the people I considered old

    Oh, the optimist

    Teach me to follow, Teach me to lead
    Teach me to stand up, And how to succeed
    As long as I'm upright, I'll try to prolong
    The notion that future events must go on
    No matter the turn out is right or is wrong

    They trusted you
    And all the things you often made them do, and now
    Everyone smilin'
    Telling me I've got to trust you to
    Do no wrong
    'Cause if you do, You just won't live as long, and now
    Everyone's cryin'
    Someone's telling them to just stop trying

    Given some truth, Call it a lie
    Given some action, Ask yourself why
    This body is slow, And it's seen its best days
    My truth is uncovered, My negative ways
    I'm one of the people I struggle to praise

    Oh, the pessimist

    Teach me to follow, But never to lead
    Teach me to stay down, And never succeed
    When everyone's watching, It's hard to admit
    The movement of shadows, That lead me to quit
    I grapple with time, But I can't make it fit

    They trusted you
    With all the things you often made them do, and now
    Everyone smillin'
    Telling me I've got to trust you to
    Do no wrong
    'Cause if you do, You just won't live as long, and now
    Everyone's smilin'
    Someone's telling them to just stop trying
