Gold Will Always Be Worth Gold


It's the way competition forces misfortune on the opponent
Or a crying baby being ignored by a loving mother
It's the way animals won't tend to the wounded
If the dying animal is not one of their own

It's the bravery of a young child to take the training wheels off
Or the bravery of a grown child to cheat on a spouse
It's because earlier civilizations resonated death
Ignorant to the pre-existing invention of war

I will sit on the moon and watch as the world suffocates
and struggles to retain breath, subtly begging for help
I have lost my faith in you

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
