lyrics

What will you be known for? What will your mark be?
Will you find it and fix it and put your world into rows?
The life of the party, some kind of artsy,
Shy like your mama or bare-faced, brazen, and bold?

I tell you this, son, no need for great notions.
What seems a proving ground is not your home.
Remember this, son, while others are striving
There's something great, something great
In being nothing at all.

What will you be known for? What life will you lead?
Will you bind yourself to the things that don't matter at all?
Should they need some compassion, will it be hard to fashion?
Kind like your mama with justice, temperance, and love?

I tell you this, son, no need for great notions.
What seems a proving ground is not your home.
Remember this, son, while others are striving
There's something great, something great
In being nothing at all.

Less of me and more of you,
Less of me and more of you...

Gone the shadows of the good
Gone the burdens you've withstood
At the end of every day
Hope is only in the Son
