Fool's Gold

What’s to be said of expectation
When love is a set up on the terms of pride
Living for the temporal purposes of a vapor dream
What will it take till you're feeling alive?
Apart from the monotony of routine

Condescension's backhanded lure
Bait the hook to promote all that you achieve
Can you silently possess the life you want?
Or does it take an audience to make believe

Seeking for security
When it's all out of control
Flaunt your highs to be someone
What gain is the world at the cost of the soul?

Falling for the mountain top view
When every peak in this life is a plateau
False summits of our enchanted wants
All we have is all we must let go

What do you have that was not given?
Care of the providence of what's in store
The pursuit of riches is a short-changed sacrifice
When we were made to live for so much more...
