Your hunger after money
Your parents agree
The things you don't require
You kid yourself you need
Neglect the flower of love
Give your worship to the weed
Your just adding links to a long and heavy chain

The selfishness that drives
So much of what you do
That a fixes your attention
Completely up on you
Your record is take away much more than your due
Your just adding links to a long and heavy chain

A heavy chain gets longer all the time
What should be easy going
Turns into a mountain climb
A heavy chain gets heavier
Day by day
It keeps you anchored to the ground
So that your heart can't fly a way

The whiskey and the women
You use to blow your mind
Are deadly on their own
And double deadly when combined
They satisfy your senses but leave your soul behind
Your just adding links to a long and heavy chain

A heavy chain gets longer all the time
What should be easy going
Turns into a mountain climb
The heavy chain gets heavier
Day by day
It keeps you anchored to the ground
So that your heart can't fly a way

A heavy chain gets longer all the time
What should be easy going
Turns into a mountain climb
A heavy chain gets heavier
Day by day
It keeps you anchored to the ground
So that your heart can't fly a way

Your hunger after money

The whiskey and the women

It's a long and heavy chain

Such a long and heavy chain
