Croesus Curse

from by James Roseman



Spending the dollar to fall on the dime
Searching for all the time
That we wasted all of our lives

When the Midas touch of your greenest thumb
Defaults into an alternate state
Will you bend or will you break

I don't want to be the one

Hang your shackles on the wall
They won't support you when you fall
It's a Croesus Curse

You check your wallet I'll check my watch
Searching for all the time
That we wasted all of our lives

Does the absence of riches enrich your health
Or is it in fact the wealth
Of the absence itself that helps
I don't know why you're frightened


from The Demo Tape, released October 20, 2014
