A song for the greedy

Gold and Silver twinkle and shine
Be the apple of my diamond studded eye
The sapphire tears I cry

Well up in the valleys of my brightly shining face
My Rhinestone Skin, so dead and thin
Will tempt my love into my cold embrace

When she comes she dances in the sky
Graceful, spin around my empty mind
Twist and turn your love divine
Kisses rich and deep like wine
But everything that breathes will die

Said the king to his daughter made of gold
"How beautiful you are
How beautiful you are"

"Your dead and soulless heart
can never rot or fall apart
Your beauty outlasts all the stars"

But the king looked upon his love
and cried in anguish to the stars above
His daughter made of gold
Mocked him every day as he grew old
For everything that breathes will die

Is my love of riches enough to bring me life?
Enough to bring a meaning to my strife?
All of my life I've stabbed this needle straight into the camel's eye
But everything that breathes will die

Gold and silver twinkle and shine
The ravens come to steal away what's mine
And kill my love divine

Ripped apart my years of heartbreak and rage
My cold dead body fades
But still I never age


Really Great

Reminds me of the perishers. The phrasing is kind of awkward sometimes. Really good for chilling.
