The World I'd Give Away

I’d give away the hate

I’d give away the sorrow

For a little peace

I’d give away the quiet

And all my emptiness

For a little challenge

The world I’d give away

So I may lead the life I want

I’d give away the love

And all my ideals

Just for a bit of trouble

Giving the world away

To live my problems through

The world I’d give away

To change myself

I’d give away relations

To find my meaning

In the world I’d give away

For a chance to prove my worth

The world I couldn’t give away

In the darkest night

Or the foulest group

My sight for future

And my love for others

To keep it all I’d risk my life

To save my world

I’d give away another

For all gifts and pleasures

I would give to find

A new world

For the world I’d give away

You've got the right idea. A continual giving away for we are in the world not of it.
