Money Dance

29 04 2008

Kicking and clawing in this world of money
You’re already in the middle of world war three
Backstabbing charlatans standing on a hallowed ground
Trying to tell you that you are free
When the banker tells you that it’s gonna be alright
You can bet that he is talking ’bout his own security

But if you gonna fly with the wings of an eagle
Then you have to be an eagle at heart
Soaring through the circus of your own emotions
And striking out into the dark

‘Cause it’s a Money Dance, Funny Dance,
Spinnin’ on a wheel of chance,
Money Dance, Funny Dance,
Spinnin’ on a wheel of chance,
Money Dance, Funny Dance,
Spinnin’ on a wheel of chance,
Money Dance, Funny Dance,
Spinnin’ on a wheel of chance,

Money isn’t everything
It’ll never buy you peace of mind
It’ll never buy you the things that you want the most
The things you love that you feel inside
And you can be sure you will find out who your friends are
When you are broke they will not run and hide
They will always be there when you need them
When the world gets tough and the times get tried

But if you gonna fly with the wings of an eagle
Then you have to be an eagle at heart
Soaring through the circus of your own emotions
And striking out into the dark

‘Cause it’s a Money Dance, Funny Dance,
Spinnin’ on a wheel of chance,
Money Dance, Funny Dance,
Spinnin’ on a wheel of chance,
Money Dance, Funny Dance,
Spinnin’ on a wheel of chance,
Money Dance, Funny Dance,
Spinnin’ on a wheel of chance,

Yet the sun keeps shinin’ in the brilliant skies
Even though they may be tinged with grey
There ain’t no reason to keep on freakin’ out
There ain’t no reason throwin’ life away
So many people in a world of trouble
How can this be in a world so bright?
With life all around you teeming in the distance
As far away as the farthest night

‘Cause it’s a Money Dance, Funny Dance,
Spinnin’ on a wheel of chance,
Money Dance, Funny Dance,
Spinnin’ on a wheel of chance,
Money Dance, Funny Dance,
Spinnin’ on a wheel of chance,
Money Dance, Funny Dance,
Spinnin’ on a wheel of chance.

We live in a world where we sometimes forget that money is not the source of life, or our inner peace, which is inherent at birth.
