Lyrics:

Now Alexander, the Great 
He was a big man across the land 
He conquered everything in sight 
He had the world at his command 

But somewhere deep down inside 
He felt there were things he still didn't know 
So he asked the wise men if they knew 
If there was some place he could go 

They said that in a far off land 
Lived a man named Diogenes 
Who possessed the kind of knowledge 
That could put his mind at ease 

Then stepping up, he said, "I'm here 
Please tell me what it is I crave" 
And the voice came back loud and clear 
From the darkness of the cave 

And said, hey, you're standing in my light 
I said hey, you're standing in my light 
You know that ain't right 
Hey, you're standing in my light 
Hey you, you're standing in my light 

Now I don't know what you think I know 
But I'm sure it's gonna be fine 
And remember that whatever's been written 
Is just the opinion of one man's mind 
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsfreak.com/d/dave+mason/youre+standing+in+my+light_20835... ] 
There are no easy answers 
That I know that'll satisfy you 
You just gotta take your chances 
And do what you wanna do 

Don't you know that in this world 
You get what you deserve 
So when your back's against the wall 
You better not lose your nerve 

And now you're standing on the street 
Like you got something to prove 
And the pavement artist at your feet 
Looks up every time you move 

And says hey, you're standing in my light 
I said hey, you're standing in my light 
You know that ain't right 
I said hey, you're standing in my light 
Hey you, you're standing in my light 
Now get out of my light 

So when you're headed for that goddess center 
And the dream that lies within it 
Just remember what the man said 
There's one born every minute 

I said hey, you're standing in my light 
I said hey, you're standing in my light 
Now that ain't right 
Hey, you're standing in my light 
Hey you, you're standing in my light 
Now get out of my light 

Hey, you're standing in my light 
I said hey, you're standing in my light, no, no 
Hey
