lyrics

There's a message born of old
Hide your secrets, hoard your gold
Man, if I work hard I can play
Ain't no thing how I spend my days

Ooh my my my my my my my my

Time is money God is dead
Live my life with no regrets
Can't help if I hurt you 'long the way
Watch my back and get my pay

Ooh my my my my my my my my

My my is this how you want to live?
My my taking more than you can give?
My my are you wondering what it's for?
Maybe you've been misinformed

Keep it close, don't give away
All that brings security
Don't you be fooled, we make our own way
Ain't no point in having faith

Ooh my my my my my my my my

Always whispering in your ear
Saying death is to be feared
Building up lies you can't knock down
Ain't worth nothin' if you're in the ground

Ooh my my my my my my my my

My my is this how you want to live?
My my taking more than you can give?
My my are you wondering what it's for?
Maybe you've been misinformed
