Good as Gold

tear me up if you want to
i have nothing left to say
tear me down if you have to
i was breaking anyways

tell a lie, it can’t hurt me
so and so with such and such
to tell the truth, it’s all empty
and i can only take so much

what good is gold
to one who only wears silver
what good is silver
to one who only treasures brass
i ask my myself but
my heart it only beats bewildered
and what good’s a heart
if it’s only made of glass

it’s as good as gold

i’ve always been a great big fan of justice
it’s just its always had a price
sometimes we get lost in the lines between our sense of judgement
so judgement’s never as precise

i wish we all had a little curiosity
maybe just a little more
i wish we wouldn’t be so quick to pick what we believe in
and miss the good things knocking at the door cause

what good is gold
to one who only wears silver
what good is silver
to one who only treasures brass
i ask my myself but
my heart it only beats bewildered
and what good’s a heart
if it’s only made of glass

it’s as good as gold
