Mouthwash – Fools Gold lyrics

Your mind is set
No attempt to change a trend gaining momentum
None the less I must confess that I've seen
All the fruits of labor that you can receive
But it's rotten when you get there
Do believe gone to seed
How can you act like a friend to those you steal from
You hug and embrace them with open arms
I learnt to never trust a person like that
Or it's an arm around your shoulder and a knife in your back

The streets are paved with gold
But it's only fools gold that you'll get
So strong yet you can't fight temptation
The easy way out is your only solution
The streets are paved with gold
But it's only fools gold that you'll get
So strong yet you can't fight temptation
The easy way out is your only solution

You'll never know what it's like to have some sense of pride in yourself
You'll never know what it's like to have some piece of mind
When you know that you don't do wrong
Every time I look into your eyes
Let me say that it won't be long
Till I walk into your line of fire
Let me say I'll stand strong
I'm not afraid to let your secret out
Yet people talk and shout out
You won't believe but when it's your bridges have burnt
And the ash washed away
You'll feel the blow with every word that I say

The streets are paved with gold
But it's only fools gold that you'll get
So strong yet you can't fight temptation
The easy way out is your only solution
The streets are paved with gold
But it's only fools gold that you'll get
So strong yet you can't fight temptation
The easy way out is your only solution

Well seasons change but patterns stay the same
A routine never broken it's the crime of staying sane
One day you'll want to run
One day you'll want to hide
One day your going to look back at the things you left behind
I said that I don't know what you could be thinking
Sailing on a ship that's slowly sinking
You aint the same person when you're drinking
Taking all you can your never content with what you're given
Yes I know because I've seen it in the mirror
And I know it won't be long before you fall
Lack of control
Lack of a feeling you belong
You're on your own
If that's your choice then carry on
Because there's nothing I can say or do to stop you
Rule of the streets says that you do what you got to
But others around with watch the rise in your revenue
And sooner or later they're going to take it from you

The streets are paved with gold
But it's only fools gold that you'll get
So strong yet you can't fight temptation
The easy way out is your only solution
The streets are paved with gold
But it's only fools gold that you'll get
So strong yet you can't fight temptation
The easy way out is your only solution
