lyrics

The boy your only son, the valiant saint
The boy with the prosperous smile yet full of haste
Look into his green eyes it will seal your fate
Known as the honourable man but who’s to say?

Love, the first word that he knew then soon forgot
Greed, was the choice of his trade then lost the plot
Hunger was his game, he loves a high stacked plate
Respect on the tip of his tongue, but cant pronunciate

Moneys the root of all evil some may say
Soon, there’ll be a price you’ll have to pay

Your father worked long and hard for dimes and cents
Not for your lifestyle of binge and purge and affluence
The day the old man did pass he left you the lot
He left you factories, restaurants and corner shops

Moneys the root of all evil some may say
Soon, there’ll be a price you’ll have to pay

The empire he was left stood through working cogs
Now left redundant, left to rust through his selfish ways
He knocked it to the ground for a few bank notes
Greed was his disease, with no antidote

Moneys the root of all evil some may say
Soon, there’ll be a price you’ll have to pay
It was his friends and family, whom were sold
He did not listen to the valuable words he was told

The man we now know left with nothing, crown or thrown, sits at home, all alone.
