life is a toil life is a toil
riches flee riches flee
pleasure dwindle pleasure dwindle
prices double prices double
nothing lasts nothing lasts
but trouble and soil but trouble and soil
you only fail you only fail
when you stop when you stop
priceless priceless
trustless trustless
thankless thankless
collect moments collect moments
not things not things
a quick gasp a quick gasp
forever alert forever alert
the price of everything the price of everything
the value of nothing the value of nothing
no fate to avert no fate to avert
I will lay down my broom I will lay down my broom
and be buried in dirt and be buried in dirt
