What’s behind the pain and tears?
A heart of love or hidden fears?
Let’s question what the world displays
And search some more through mankind’s ways
Why fear? For death will come to all
Life is a gift, we all must fall
One day the reaper’s twinkling eye
Will rest upon both you and I
And what of now? What can we give?
For now’s the time we have to live
Insurance, fine, let’s have some sense
But no point getting too intense
The days slip by and chances pass
A seething, writhing, greedy mass
All tooth and nail and wanting more
But what of happiness, what’s in store?
Let’s step back now and see more clear
With crystal vision expose the fear
And slay it with extreme precision
That’s all for now, it’s your decision
