Gold

Once There Was A Little Boy Who Came Across A Tomb 
In The Tomb Were Two Eyes, The Only Things In The Room 
One For Feeling One For Seeing, They Saw Into His Soul 
In The End They Said Just Go The World Has Gone To Gold 

The Child He Left, Walked Away, Found Himself A Queen 
Asked Her For Her Answer To What This All Could Mean 
She Said She Didn’t Know, But She Had Herself A Clue 
All The Wretched Things She’s Seen Her Husband Do 

From Murder With Fervor To Poisoning Cups To Get Himself A Crown 
His Biggest Mark Left On This Earth Is The Blood Left On The Ground 
He Hasn’t Felt For If He Had, So Unsettled He Would Be 
He’d See The Same Greed And Hate The Eyes Of Life Had Seen 

There Is Hope, Though Little Still, To Saving People’s Souls 
If We All Could Feel The Others’ Pain, We All Would Have No Foe 
The Love Would Spread, Though Miss The Dead, It’d Change The Future Still 
The Eyes Of Life Could Then Pronounce The Devil’s Had His Fill 

But The Devil’s Got A Quick Trick 
For Weeding Out The Greedy 
Puts Gold On A Platter 
Prices It For Selling 

He Says Take It, Leave Your Soul With Me 
Take It, Leave Your Soul With Me 
Take It, Leave Your Soul With Me 
Take It, The Choice Is Made You See 

It’s Not Really A Question 
It’s More What’s In Your Being 
The Good That’s In Your Heart 
That Keeps Your Soul From Leaving 

When He Says Take It, Leave Your Soul With Me 
Take It, Leave Your Soul With Me 
Take It, Leave Your Soul With Me 
Take It, The Choice Is Made You See 

When The Day Is Done, There’s Not Much To It Son 
You’d Choose Gold Over What Is Free 
When The Day Is Done, Evil’s Surely Won 
You’d Choose Gold Over Being Free 
When The Day Is Done, I’ll Be A Lonely One 
Cause I Chose Love Over Toxic Greed 
(Love Over Toxic) 
No I Won’t Give In, I’ll Sing Not Be Dismissed 
You Will See That Love’s The Key
