"No Simple Task," describes how people knowingly and unknowingly save each other's lives every day.

lyrics

How’d ya like to save my life
From a fate worse than living?
How’d ya like to grab the knife
That’s been jammed into my back?

I would like to strike a bargain
If you think it’s worth the time
I would gladly save your life
If only you’d save mine

How’d ya like to be the one
To help me find my purpose?
How’d ya like to grab the gun
I’ve been holding to my head?

‘Cause I think we’ve both been sinking
For the longest time
But I would gladly save your life
If only you’d save mine

And I know it’s no simple task
And perhaps too much to ask
But I think I’m worth saving

How’d ya like to come along
And show me something better?
How’d ya like to right the wrong
That I just can’t seem to shake?

I would proudly trade this poison
For the finest wine
And I would gladly save your life
If only you’d same mine

And I know it’s no simple task
And perhaps too much to ask
But I think you’re worth saving
