Western Culture When the Love Dies


The glamorous sit in poverty
Laughing at the rich and blessed that they can't perceive
Yes, they can not see what has true worth
What can it buy in Sheol when they enter the earth?

A tragedy beyond all else this beauty in this world
To awake and find it's really gone and with it your worth
To never know exactly who is kind or real or cold
Until your beauty makes it's last retreat when you grow old

All the while the beautiful
Think that they are noble great and wise
What it is they fail to see
that they are envy in disguise

So don't you shudder anymore
At the wretched face of the ugly few
For beauty crawls on it's belly in the dust
Yes, it is they who will pity you.
