  • I did it all for the money, Lord
    That's what it seems
    Well, in the world of night terrors it's
    Hard to dream, they hollerin' cash rules everything
    Just call it cream, cause when it rises to the top
    You get the finer things
    Oceanfronts, rolling blunts with model chicks
    And saying grace over lobster and steak
    Like please forgive us for riding Benzes with camera plates
    Too busy looking backwards for jackers to pump my brakes
    For help signs to symbolize the lives that hunger takes
    Addicted to the green, if I don't ball I'll get the shakes
    I'd give it all for peace of mind, for Heaven's sake
    My heart's so heavy that the ropes that hold my casket breaks
    'Cause everything that wasn't for me I had to chase

    They told me that the ends
    Won't justify the means
    They told me at the end
    Don't justify the dreams
    That I've had since a child
    Maybe I'll throw in the towel
    Make my (make my)
    Make my (make my)
    Departure from the world

    Tryin' to control the fits of panic
    Unwritten and unraveled, it's the dead man's pedantic
    Whatever, see it's really just a matter of semantics
    When everybody's fresh out of collateral to damage
    My splaying got me praying like a mantis
    I begin to vanish
    Feel the pull of the blank canvas
    I'm contemplating that special dedication
    To whoever it concern, my letter of resignation
    Fading back to black, my dark coronation
    The heat of the day, the long robe of muerte
    That soul is in the atmosphere like airplay
    If there's a Heaven I can't find a stairway

    They told me that the ends
    Won't justify the means
    They told me at the end
    Don't justify the dreams
    That I've had since a child
    Maybe I'll throw in the towel
    Make my (make my)
    Make my (make my)
