It Seemed the Better Way Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Seemed the better way
When first I heard him speak
Now it's much too late
To turn the other cheek
Verse 2
Sounded like the truth
Seemed the better way
Sounded like the truth
But it's not the truth today
Verse 3
I wonder what it was
I wonder what it meant
First he touched on love
Then he touched on death
Verse 4
Sounded like the truth
Seemed the better way
Sounded like the truth
But it's not the truth today
Verse 5
I better hold my tongue
I better take my place
Lift this glass of blood
Try to say the grace
Verse 6
Seemed the better way
When first I heard him speak
But now it's much too late
To turn the other cheek
Verse 7
Sounded like the truth
Seemed the better way
Sounded like the truth
But it's not the truth today
Verse 8
I better hold my tongue
I better take my place
Lift this glass of blood
Try to say the grace
