The Profit

This song was created for Game of Bands round 254 : "Dream Sequence"

Lyrics:

(Guitar by littlestreaminthewoods)

I can sense that something weighs on you
You are lost and so unsure
Saw an omen of your passing through
Glimpsed in dreams obscure

If you dare to stare fate in the eyes
Then come on in, my friend
I have what you prize (no refunds).

So what am I doing
In a cramped little stall
In a run-down strip mall

I once was a prophet, they called me the seer
And I see profit here

In my youth I had a talent
I dreamed events before they happened
Some of doom and some of fortune
All I wanted, was to warn them

But people they only hear what they want to hear
And when they don’t understand, well, let’s just say it’s not pretty

I spoke the truth, and sparked hate
I tried to help, but caused heartbreak
So I’m done playing the part of prophet
But, I still have to work… for profit. Get it?


Look into my eyes and I will
Whisper what you want to hear
I have seen your future
Come and listen if you dare

For the right price you can get it
What I've gleaned in dreams prophetic
I'll make my fortune telling yours
Just for the profit, nothing more

Nothing more
Just for the profit, nothing more

I, I hold the key
To all that you desire
The future? Well, the future is yours
Just make the present mine

For a bargain, I’ll let you taste it
See the path that you've been fated
I'll make my fortune telling yours
Just for the profit, nothing more

I, I hold the key
To all that you desire
The future? Well, the future is yours
Just make the present mine
[Exit]
