The Edge

This song is my love letter to wall street.  No matter your point of consciousness on the subject, you do in fact forfeit your financial wealth when you die, and indeed “can’t take it with you when you go.”

The Edge

All we have is our hands
our hands help us understand
All we have is our hands

They forgot what it’s like to be human
dollar signs is what they got in their eyes
and on their minds
Greed’s been around for a long long long time

you got to give it all back in the end
every dollar that you stole my friend
Every lie that you told
so you could hold onto the gold
while your brothers are living on the edge

they forgot what it was like to be children
using toy guns to learn the competition
a real gun will make you understand
they can try to take us from the land
and they will if they can
that’s why we got to care
care for one another

You got to give it all back in the end
Every dollar that you stole my friend
Every lie that you told
So you could hold onto the gold
While your brothers are living on the edge

All we have is our hands
our hands help us understand
All we have is our hands
