Are you here, if for a shallow thrill?
Are you here, if for a shallow thrill?
Do you look in the eyes of every kill?
Or do you cowardly turn?

You say that we are bonded by blood
You say that we both share the same hope
And if our hope was gold
If our hope was gold
If our hope was gold
We'd never be broke

No surprise as grand old buildings fell
Watched as thieves, thieves and their children helped
Was it worth, woth the shallow thrill?
Just to burn what generations built


from Hope Is Gold - Single, track released June 11, 2012
Produced and Mastered by Keith Murphy May 2012
