Speeding through life
never enough time
Searching for happiness
destination cloud nine
Nice house, new car
nice clothes, new jewelry
Season tickets, club seats
all bought with stained money
The fast life carries a price
a fool and money shall part
Taking with it all the things
used to fill this empty heart
Now groping at shadows
looking for some light
Darkness surrounds me
as days become eternal nights
But seek and there you'll find
enlightenment to brighten your way
Being mindful of the present
while letting go of yesterday
Free from blinding desires
beauty is easy to see
The things I once sought
were always around me.
