Artist: No Malice
Album:  Let the Dead Bury the Dead
Song:   Lu.4:5
Typed by:

"And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain,
 shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.
 And the devil said unto him, 'All this power will I give thee,
 and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me;
 and to whomsoever I will I give it.
 If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine.'" - My God!

[No Malice]
Who said being rich ain't what it seem?
I say it's everything you EVER dreamed
Handpickin whores from the mezzanine
My every wish they command, I put that on my wedding ring
Shoulda SEEN them Vegas nights
At the crap table, it's like I'm shaken loaded dice
Love me for my money, I'm no dummy, yeah I know the type
Don't slam my door gettin in, I'on't tell 'em twice!
Yeah, that devil had a hold on 'em
Thinkin God had blessed me like I caught a cold on 'em
Best friends forever 'til the stand, then he told on 'em
Sellin +rock+ together, tell me how you +roll+ on 'em?
Loyalty's like royalties
Everybody streamin, checks come far and few between
View the scene before you choose to flaunt
Cause he gon' give you EVERYTHING you want

MY MY MY! Look at momma's baby boy
Ain't he clean? Smelling like NEW money!
And that car - LOOK at that car!!
Yeah, you fly, daddy! Bet yo' feet don't NEVER touch the ground!

[No Malice]
By no means have I arrived
Wretched man am I, tempted on every side
To give you truth, I am thereby obliged
Riches mean nothin if the eye is never satisfiiiiied~!
And I ain't NEVER satisfied
Guilty as charged, I got EVERYTHING but an alibi
My past life - WOO! - Loved it like a child of mine
Now devil, I spit in yo' face like a battle rhyme
Such beauty in the suffering
I must look a mess wit all this blood I'm covered in
Things I done forgot, they just now discovering
So when I seen 'em bask in they fame, I was chucklin
Eh-ha! If only it was funny tho
What a shame, too bad it's not/snot, like a runny nose
Find 'em on the Forbes, list still having money woes
Posin in that new Wraith, I still want me one of those

That's right! He gon' give you ANYTHING you want
You can have it all! All you got to do is bow
Bow down! And it's yours!
Only caveat is.. you better live it up now!
You better live it up RIGHT now! I know I sure would
Don't be no fool, you gon' do it, DO IT!!
Live it up! LIVE IT ALL THE WAY UP!!!
