the foundation

To take the place of greatness you build and create You give and you take but the outcome is great To build up a castle it takes up the time I have to relax I have to unwind when I'm feeling this knot that shoots pain through my spine  and the emptiness flows through aquarius signs Though we're star crossed lovers you ask for the time So I'm standin at bedrock and can't help but cry when the resources cut just the land will survive Too battered to grow but to nice for the temple Foundation of life, house of zen supplemental You ask what you miss and they give you a smile And say to be great you must walk one more mile Where the angels will dance while they fall in the trial Of the pothead who thought he could change as a child To the one who played games never changed he was wild To the core he was bored so he ruined the style that would build up his castle and then he repent As I walked down the road though, an angel was sent She said to redeem and be free from the lies And the only real way you will feel peace inside is to give up your soul and reenter the light And help all you can everyday til you die The heart in the open its rotten inside So I gave it to her to be safe through the night And I wandered the dawn and I reached the twilight I sigh to myself cuz this cannot be life Lifes what you make it though lifes only basic Your mind is your castle You're that close to greatness
