Money Is King (I)

Sudden calls come running
Into my heart, that place that holds my engine
New decisions come floating through
Two roads, right or wrong
The same thing applies everywhere
Places where one throws away beliefs
And heads deep into the king of bills
With his crown in place
He summons all to his midst
Some with a cup of courage go the other way and suffer peace
The ones remaining wipe and dust the dirt off from the king’s throne
As they do, bills roll through
Down into their pockets
So they smile
For a certain lifetime it’s all good
But it’s all valued with vanity, I say
Lifetime’s all you need brother, they reply
But brother life is time, I continue
A life to live full
For time is a journey full of life
Different times, different lives
This one here and the other awaiting
So why pile up things that fail to transcend waves
Things that fall when the soul is heavy and burdened with grief
Things that lack meaning and proper reasoning
I see you say they fill your thirst
They help you sleep at night
They make women lust over your loins
Oh I see they bring strength and power
I see, I see
Nothing wrong in finding value in things without soul
But the day goes and the night comes
The sounds of the trees lingers to and fro
The dogs bark and bark
Your dreams starts on the mark
The demons you see there holds your breathe
Taste the food, its sweet right?
You’re in with the evil of the night
You’re chained now
Bound by things without value
They make you see life through them
You live life walking on and about
Moving through, time passing by
