A system of money or a system of morals

We search for the truth beneath the corals

Swimming around the water like hungry sharks

Only to know life is so dark

The deeper we get the harder the breath

Some search for truth but only find death

Torn between two worlds all for the greed

Life so opaque, not knowing the weight of a deed

To live so lavishly and not understand

We’re all just marchers of the same walking band

Some tunes are more beautiful than the rest

We’re all just prisoners, all of the same test

Many will fail and only few will strive

Never knowing the beauty of being alive

Torn between systems so dark and so light

Knights in armor, hearts truly black or truly white
