Good Life 03:41
i am taking my own advice and i'm working to lock down a good life i am sure it will be hard to find because we're only here for a short time but i'm gonna try to find it gonna look past the lies we're told that a body is worth its weight in fool's gold that nobody's breaking their back for me what is debt to whom do i owe whatever i owe? stay sharp to see wrong from right but decisions aren't always made in black and white and what goes around comes back around to us although money and power change hands the hands don't change

all good things fall to pieces we trust what we believe in time takes the weary by surprise and holds on as it goes by almighty youth and beauty set into thankless duty each day accelerates anew faster and faster a fraction of what came a drop in the bucket age infects us all no vaccine or remedy will slow the symptoms down so graciously we must face the inevitable all things break down all good things fall to pieces before our eyes believe it time takes the meager by the throat and drags down in a death grip hopeful and bright-eyed young men become what came before them time taints a sanguine point of view darker and darker hearts harder than stone a fraction of what came born a blank slate broken over time

come and taste the sweet away from home out on your own good and bad will come how can a good man find what he wants amidst the wicked and the dumb lo and behold he must help himself opulent world where options are endless signal to noise the ratio got to sift through the mud to get to the gold oh signal to noise newspapers and magazines and such fine little-known little landscapes of people and places here and abroad are buried by the weight of such quick irony everywhere i see pictures of faces numbers of thumbs signal to noise the ratio got to sift through the mud to get to the gold oh signal to noise fiber-optic blood veins subterranean pulse a central nervous system beneath the soil dvd's and cat food anyplace anytime behold the end result of evolution's grind call it what you want to open access and such hard to tell if its strength in the margins or a top-down, meta lie to sell us stuff signal to noise the ratio got to sift through the mud to get to the gold oh signal to noise

brother brother easy on the intake try to curb the rate of dependence before it gets the best of you and breaks you down mercy mercy every morning look and find a heart afloat in pickle juice a plight of desperation as we helpless come to taste the light sharp as the sun the gift that gives to everyone mysterious a strange device so it goes that happiness is hard to find and harder to hold onto if you want to get it when you want it find a source holy holy holes in cheeks and bloodshot eyes rotten teeth and liver rotten disposition lazy river suicide to taste the light sharp as the sun the gift that gives to everyone mysterious a strange device please try to give it up and get it right and kick the habit over night deliver our eyes from a sad sight to a self made one we pray every day and every night to let him live and see the light and lose his taste for the cheap, quick, and the synthesized to taste the light sharp as the sun the gift that gives to everyone mysterious a strange device
