lyrics

We’re all groomed to believe in the joys that come with wealth. As if our sheer existence is measured in financial girth. And I have to admit now I feel into that trap. Turned into a pompous wannabe. Urgh, a fucking twat. My boasts of flashy cars, my trips to far flung places. Throwing cash around myself forgetting airs and graces. I’m sure my peers are laughing now, they’ve known all along. The higher I sit upon my stool the harder I will fall.
So take some heed. Don’t make mistakes that I did. Turn your empty pockets in, enjoy your life for what it is. So take some heed. There’s a lesson to be told. The world can easily pass you by, have no regrets when you get old.
And now I’ve had my disastrous fall from grace. Been locked up in this tiny room, been getting used to this pace. I’ve had plenty of time now to reflect on my bad choices. Started now to understand and listen to the voices. If only I had listened when everyone around me stood around in disbelief. The mistakes I made for all to see. To turn your back on the things that make you happy is nothing short of sacrilege. No soul. No will. No dreams to live.
So take some heed. Don’t make mistakes that I did. Turn your empty pockets in, enjoy your life for what it is. So take some heed. There’s a lesson to be told. The world can easily pass you by, have no regrets when you get old.
