Default “Money World”

“Money World”

If the world didn’t revolve around money
And money didn’t revolve around the world
Respect for each other would be different
Respect for each other would be heard

Instead we choose to rant and ramble
Place bets, pay debts, and gamble
Our pride, our emotion, our morale
Shot to hell cause we played and we failed

Living in this money world
Twisted like a ‘nadoes whirl
Dollars burned, nothing learned
Living in this money world

Now all we’re left with is I.O.U.’s
A sad ending to an unfilled muse
How do we seal these broken gaps?
Shattered vows and mindless mishaps

We’re flirting with danger, so we’ve been told
This enigma we’re living is just getting old
Will they ever come to terms
There’s some things you just don’t learn

Living in this money world
Twisted like a ‘nadoes whirl
Dollars burned, nothing learned
Living in this money world

Life is a fight
And I’m dropping my gloves
Trying with all my might
Just to rise above

The insanity, the crime, the hate
Traveling across country
From state to state

It’s all become World War III
While trying to battle for what we believe

Suite crime versus Street Crime
Is how it’s being played
The rich keep getting richer
As the rest are being strayed


Living in this money world
Twisted like we twist our words
Dollars burned, nothing learned
Living in this money world

Default “No One is to Blame”

When you're young, decisions are made with a much lighter heart
Not knowing where it will take you or if it will tear your life apart

I always reached out with both hands
Hoping you would do the same
But like a mirage you weren't there
No one is to blame


Just one time, one time, I would’ve liked to hear you say
“I’m proud of you even if things didn’t go your way,”
Who knows, who knows, if I’d be a better person now
Someplace, somewhere, someway, somehow.


I took life as it was handed
Thought that it would always pan out
Never judged your imperfections
No "I love you’s" left unquestioned

Those endless promises you made
Amusement parks and baseball games
But like the seasons your mind had changed
No one is to blame



Just one time, one time, I would’ve liked to hear you say
“I’m proud of you even if things didn’t go your way,”
Who knows, who knows, if I’d be a better person now
Someplace, somewhere, someway, somehow.


I just wanted your attention
Not to mention love and affection
But with that heart of stone
You had left me all alone

Your approval was much so needed
And now my love for you has weeded
Just like a dying flame
No one is to blame

Just one time, one time, I would’ve liked to hear you say
“I’m proud of you even if things didn’t go your way,”
Who knows, who knows, if I’d be a better person now
Someplace, somewhere, someway, and somehow.


This feeling is too familiar
Just looking to need to know here
When this emotion will succumb
I feel like I'm the only one

This pain has left me to discover
Oh, how my heart and mind won't recover
How do you forgive someone with no soul?
Scarred for life, forcing up a wall


Just one time, one time, I would’ve liked to hear you say
“I’m proud of you even if things didn’t go your way,”
Who knows, who knows, if I’d be a better person now
Someplace, somewhere, someway, and somehow.


Like a frown, you pulled me down
More than I have should allowed
Tried to refrain from this pain
So many pieces still remain

No excuses
It is useless
Can’t look back
Too many issues
Simple and plain
You were the blame
Now I look at you with disdain

Just one time, one time, I would’ve liked to hear you say
“I’m proud of you even if things didn’t go your way,”
Who knows, who knows, if I’d be a better person now
Someplace, somewhere, someway, and somehow.

Default “Justify”

Why is it so hard for others to accept what’s true
Why is it so hard, can’t they understand the love I feel for you
It’s not about being right or wrong,
It’s about needing to move on

Because this is a choice I’ve made of mine
It’s not for other’s to decide
Let it be known your rules don’t apply,
You live your life and I’ll live mine

Justify
Justify
Nothing here to justify
You live your life, I’ll live mine
We don’t need to see eye to eye

I’ve respected your wishes, now you respect mine
This is who I am, not changing my mind
What’s it going to take for you to see?
I can’t go on not living like me

Take precautions, do what you need to do
I’m moving on, there’s nothing I need to prove
You’ve made your bed, now in it you lye,
There’s nothing here to be justified

Justify
Justify
Nothing here to justify
You live your life, I’ll live mine
We don’t need to see eye to eye

Justify
Justify
Nothing here to justify
I’m so tired of living a lie
This is me so stop asking, “Why?”
