Are we people seeking answers to our lives, hopes and dreams?
From beginnings of our youth, we're taught to plot and scheme
In life we learn to make our place and to maximize our dreams
We work to pay our way, or are we paying for others schemes?
To respect all of the people, who seek prominence and wealth
Learn from leaders of this world, and stack the hand you're dealt
Your worth and happiness are found by seeking wealth in coin
only a few can take but, all must pay, it's all in the club you join
You sell your smile's for a dollar, and your freedom for your joy
Fact is your still building monuments for coin collectors to enjoy
Leaders use people in this world, for labor as a remote control toy
push a button, pull the stick, to control each women, man and boy
Is their similarity, of life and history we've learned from all our books?
This life you've led, was it the plan to leave our children on the hook?
It's said we can learn from our past, to avoid making the same mistake
less intelligence then the ape man, as we teach mistakes not to make
Having the same ideas, of our worth, as when Jesus walked this earth
Do you think the value of our life, is the number of coins we are worth?
Think you've missed the meaning of this journey, ever since your birth?
Our journey is to learn and teach, all the children, not to take the mirth.
In his words, the circle of life is to be followed by heaven, as we all know
with an eternal peace, happiness and joy, without pain, suffering or woe
Instead of chasing coin and following false leaders like herds of sheep
spread destruction and defile the air, sea and land for more coins to heap
Shouldn't we prepare to enter Heavens gate, if this is what we seek?
