Riches to Rags Lyrics
I've been around way too long to care or wonder
Why am I bound to witness all this mess? I guess
Wherever you go – it's the same, so I'm
Sure it's a name of the game
If you're quick on a trigger, richer and bigger
You'd stay a bit longer, get a bit stronger, hope for the best. It's alright

You can save every dime, hide or bury it all
But the higher you climb… even harder you fall
Carry on, don't be shy – keep on stuffing these bags
In a blink of an eye you'll go from riches to rags
Don't forget! Then again… go ahead
Carry on, don't be shy – keep on packing these bags
In a blink of an eye you'll go from riches to rags

I've been around way too long to care or wonder
Who's going down, who's to blame or why… oh my
Do as you pleased but watch out
Here's what I'm talking about
Hurry, pick up your number… who's going under?
Look at these faces, glittering places…
There is no easy way out
