The Man With The Car, Women, Wealth & Power
I'm standing here at a cross-road
Having to choose between wealth and respect
I choose wealth cause I'm the kid of person who lives for the day
I live for myself. I can't give a damn to what the rest have to say.
I'm standing on a roof top
I'm deciding on which to take - with evil on my left & good on my right
So I went with evil and was given a gun in my hand
With a big car, women, wealth and power - here I stand.
I relaxing in my indoor pool
Thinking of who I'm going to bully or kill
Then I'll go to the finest restaurant and have a good dinner
I'll choose between my girls, and then go home with her.
On my way home, I saw this old couple walking hand in hand
They were smiling & everybody around seemed to be their friends.
They nibbled on shared meals, and then they all sat around together
They sang and clapped in a happiness that seemed to last forever.
I know that tomorrow all this wealth, women and life will be gone,
I'll be a naked individual at the light of the new dawn.
Nobody to hold me, nobody to offer me a bite of their meal
Nobody to smile with, nobody to know how I feel.
I'm standing on this pavement in this crowded city
Without a gun, car, women or power & nobody seems to notice me.
I look around and see people smiling & talking with those around
Maybe they hadn't picked wealth or evil, yet there is happiness found.
