Living For Naught

VERSE 1

The secret to happiness:

So many claim to have the key,

But most the keys are counterfeits,

And give mere false release.

Frustration is abound when

Life's beyond your control,

But if you focus on what you do have

You'll find no resentment at all.

.

CHORUS

We know that some things are worth dying for,

But now we must figure out

What we live for every day

And what we could do without,

The big prices that we pay

For the things that can't be bought,

The splurges of money that are

Spent without a thought.

We've gotta break this habit

We're gonna break this habit

Or else we live for naught.

.

VERSE 2

The secret to love

Lies not in your peers.

People you love might leave and pass

While you're just left with tears.

When investing love in things that can't last,

Please just be aware:

Until you accept and love yourself

All else will be impaired.

.

CHORUS

We know that some things are worth dying for,

But now we must figure out

What we live for every day

And what we could do without,

The big prices that we pay

For the things that can't be bought,

The splurges of money that are

Spent without a thought.

We've gotta break this habit

We're gonna break this habit

Or else we live for naught.

.

VERSE 3/BRIDGE

The secret to life

Is a hidden and rare gift

That might be shrouded in the veils

Of alluring counterfeits.

Physical pleasures

Can reach an overload,

Love can be tainted with lust

And meaning can get hollowed.

Purpose can only be reached

With real creating and with awe

Of the world around you,

Divine in its laws.

.

CHORUS

We know that some things are worth dying for,

But now we must figure out

What we live for every day

And what we could do without,

The big prices that we pay

For the things that can't be bought,

The splurges of money that are

Spent without a thought.

We've gotta break this habit

We're gonna break this habit

Or else we live for naught.
