Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

Loneliness on a death bed
On a bed he lay
Breaths are slighter
Eyes are searching
Only a nurse to see

Choices he recalls
Decisions he made
It all went wrong
From a young age

Watches and cars
Objects over people
Spending time alone
In clubs and in bars

Doing right by money
Isolated in wealth
Looking no further
Than the image of himself

Loved ones abandoned
Feelings obsolete
Never looking back
At hurt filled eyes

Expensive houses
Flashy new cars
Show biz lifestyle
Drugs and alcohol

Life was quick
Short term notions
Relationships drowned
Ignoring emotions

Failure to help
Those who asked
Now you're alone
No hand to hold

Read these words
Don't ever forget
We all end up
In the same wooden box

On a bed he lays
Eyes are closing
Last breath is drawn
No tears for him falling
