I work and I work and I know not why
To help greedy bastards
As I help myself die.
I keep on going until I no longer can
And get replaced by another
A more naive man
They take and they take until I've no more to give
So I sit there and wonder
Why do I live?
The days seem longer than all the years I’ve known
As my life flashes before me
I’ve not yet grown.
And then I remember, that was worth why!
For a hug and a kiss
Under a sun setting sky
From the most beautiful of angels sent from above
That through all my grief
Holds onto my love
