lyrics

Chapter VII
I’d rather have a good name than long cash
2 They say in these times of strife, only the strong laughs
3 But got the blissfully ignorant on the wrong path
4 This world is lost. I’d be a fool to ignore that.
5 I mourn this life, because I see it for what it really is
6 It could never be as sweet as you think it is
7 All the singing and dancing is meaningless
8 They get bribed out their minds by who they’re drinking with.
9 Better to end than to start
Patience is better than pride
10 Anger will weaken the heart
In the hearts of fools, it resides
11 Money puts clothes on your back
Wisdom will shelter the soul
12 Hope you inherit some jewels-
Mental, and rubies and gold
Remember this:
13 In this life, not a thing lasts
14 Can’t know the future—be present.
You can’t change the past
15 Can’t change the weather
Be it beautiful or be it bad
16 The only certainty is “this too shall pass”
17 In all your righteousness and wisdom you won’t be saved
18 And the wicked and the foolish see the same fate
19 And since every living being dies one day
20 Avoid extremes; fear God; walk the middle way
21 Cause not a’ one of us on earth here is upright
22 Ignore the slanderers, the hypocrites and parasites
23 Their secret deeds and wicked thoughts keep them up at night
24 Evil that’s done in the dark will always come to light
25 What does it mean to be wise?
Something far off and profound,
26 But just a piece props you up
Stupidity brings you down
27 There’s obstacles on the path—
Plenty of things to distract
28 But if you’re nimble in soul
You won’t get caught in the traps.
