“Be positive”, “Stay positive” they say,
It’s hard to do that when you have no where to stay.
It’s hard to do that when the pain runs down your face.
“Be positive”, “Stay positive” they say.

“Be positive”,  “stay positive” they say.
You can do that when it’s sunny out,
And your face is like a lake with a drought.
You can do that when everything is right side up,
and not upside down.
You can do that when everyone is encouraging you to do better
Even when things are getting worse.
“ Be Positive”, “Stay positive” they say. 

“Be positive”, “Stay positive” they say.
Do it just to get through the day.
Do it so you won’t start to display the feeling of being grey.
Do it even if it gets you past judgement day.
“Be positive”, “Stay positive” they say.

“Be positive”, “Stay positive” that’s what they said,
So I got up and looked ahead.
I got up and started to chase my bread.
I got up with the right head.
Looking to the future and not the past
So I won’t be mislead.
“Be positive”, “Stay positive” I said.
