Rich Man's Anthem

from by Shilo Gold



You don't have to be rich.
You don't have to be the wise man's daughter.
Maybe the apple tends to fall a little farther
when growing from the tallest tree.

You're not doing no wrong,
by laying low and skipping stones out by the water.
If it makes you that much stronger
and rids you of this misery.

Can't you see its not our words it's the space between.
The silence has a way of echoing.
It hits and in the midst of all this clutter you'll find bliss.

You don't have to feel small.
When standing on the tallest mountain looking onwards.
You've made it there and now there's nothing you can conquer.
Just let your hair down, misery.

Oh you've barely hit the peak of all the madness.
Barely scratched the surface of the pain.
Barely took on more than you can handle.
It's rare to just let go and ride the wave.
Once you breathe the air of satisfaction,
the one that leaves you with the sweetest taste.
You'll hit the ground running no matter what's coming,
it's the poor man's way. Having nothing but faith.
