Gambling Your Life


Life is like a lottery in many ways, You see

We all get a chance to win,
Even you and me

We all get money,
But none have the same amount

See some of us live 100 years
And some of us are dead when we come out

You don't get to choose your number of tickets or determine what you win

The reward for your success comes from within

You can't hack the game or cheat
Because death is what you'll meet

The best way to win is to invest
Put your odds to the test

Some invest in insanity and others in Christianity

The idea is so simple yet so profound that nobody believes the solution has already been found

Drop a few chips here and a few chips there but soon you won't have any left to spare
