Charity - Music & Lyrics by Joe Skager

I forgot about charity. I have too many possessions,
like I've been possessed by bad intention.
Oh the fraud of selfishness and greed.
Gold and silver shine but only when she's mine.
So I buried her jewelry.

I’m feeling it all at once; I feel the faith lost with every dollar.
So why don’t you go be a good little girl
and steal money from your father?
I found her digging in the yard and told her leave it alone.

The human form, a human norm. The need for cash and coin.
We won’t settle our greed until we sleep
atop heaps upon heaps of golden bars.

I forgot about charity. I am condemning my every purpose
and deeming the lesser worthless. Who am I to beg and plead?
Should I maim the king or restore his royalty?
We’re stabbing backs to get closer to the Queen.

I’m feeling it all at once; I feel the faith lost with every dollar.
So why don’t you go be a good little girl
and steal money from your father?
I found her digging in the yard.
She’d be better off sifting creeks for fool’s gold.

The human form, a human norm. The need for cash and coin.
We won’t settle our greed until we sleep
atop heaps upon heaps of golden bars.
