Luck Is For The Few
From the bells that toll at the iron gates,
To the edge where dreams meet fate.
The sun has eclipsed the moon,
And the day is on its way.
Sweeping under the door,
Rising up from the floor.
I’ve lived to see, to hear, to read and this I know is true,
That Luck Is For The Few.

A wooden cross hangs around the neck,
Of truth too wicked to touch,
By those that dare not torch alight,
The thoughts that cast their sight,
Away from the wrongs and the rights,
That they hold to the questions of life.
Outside your house maybe butterflies and flowers,
Or destruction and death could be your view.
Its cruel, that Luck Is For The Few.

Strangers passing side by side,
To never see the other again.
A glimpse, a glance without a chance,
To ever be apart,
Of their search to find,
A connection, a purpose, a passion.
Your heart may be shattered, untouched, or torn,
Or your love could be strong and true.
Its cruel, but Luck Is For The Few.

Deceived by beauty; enticed by wealth,
As things to strive for yourself.
Fearing not that you may become,
The one you once despised.
Some see through the illusions and strongly reject,
While others simply accept.
That the joys of life are shared among,
The most deserving and hard working.
And not cause Luck,
Is Just, For The Few.

People’s hopes rely upon justice to arrive,
From a world that denies the chance to thrive to so many.
The lucky will tell their winning tale,
While the losers silently wail.
You can try your best but not succeed,
And there’s nothing you can do,
Cause Luck Is For The Few.

Oh boi. Just planned to go to Sydney for a month hope its not that bad!
The best thing about this track is your songwriting, it captures the messiness of feeling and your observations about life are poetic.
