John Mayer

Take all of your wasted honor
Every little past frustration
Take all of your so called problems
Better put 'em in quotations.

Say what you need to say

Walkin' like a one man army
Fightin' with the shadows in your head
Livin' up the same old moment
Knowin' you'd be better off instead
If you could only...

Say what you need to say

Have no fear for givin' in
Have no fear for giving over
You better know that in the end
It's better to say too much
than never to say what you need to say again

Even if your hands are shaking
And your faith is broken
Even as the eyes are closin'
Do it with a heart wide open

Say what you need to say

[It's the last stanza that hits me in the gut. Powerful. Beautiful.]

These lyrics inspired me to be more wide open with my heart and with my eyes. Wasted Honor has become my ideology as I am now putting all my frustrations into quotations and writing my book on my experiences and my feelings about provocative points of view.
