Will it be worth it in the end?
When your children question the role that you played
Will you be able to look in their eyes
And state from your heart that you did the right thing?
What did they promise you, what did it take for you
To join the insanity, to betray humanity
It didn’t take much to acquire your soul
Some power and money turned your heart to coal
Should you decide that your greed is enough
To justify all of the things that you’ve done
Should you conclude that you’ve been really lucky
Glad to have been given the opportunity
To make your own personal deal with the devil
What makes you think that you’ll get what was promised?
What makes you think that he’ll keep his word?
You think you are certain to get the reward?
Will you find safety behind massive stone walls
When due to your betrayal the rest of the world falls?
Will you find solace behind gilded gates
While down to your greed the world disintegrates?
I give you my personal damn guarantee
That you’ll come to see it eventually
It’s more than just certain, there’s less than no doubt
Your Faustian deals will never work out.
