ASHES

This song is a funk/blues song written about the difference between money and love. Wes tries to portray that money is material and love is eternal, and does so with shocking lyrics with deep meaning. Money can't be taken with you, but love can. Sometimes the happiest people on Earth are the ones who have nothing. Cos in the end, we're all just ashes.....

LYRICS:
Take a look at the people
take a look at the streets
here come the preacher
throwing love at their feet
He'll watch us all fall down
He'd say, better get right with your Gods
cos' all in all its against the odds, I found
ashes, ashes, we all fall down

Take a look at the reasons
that you live your life
with all the changing seasons
noone cares for your advice
because we all fall down
It don't take much to succeed
a little love that's all you need, I found
ashes, ashes, we all fall down

I don't care for money's classes
and the people with their holy stashes
life's a little more than looks and fashion,
making money, and pleasing the masses
show the world just a little compassion
half the world could use your rations
go ahead and just give me my lashes
because I know that we're all just ashes

Take a look at the poor man
he's saying grace
he ain't got nothing
but he knows his fate
and he'll watch us all fall down
It seems to be the less you own
the more love your heart can it show out loud
ashes, ashes, we all fall down

I don't care for money's classes
and the people with their holy stashes
life's a little more than looks and fashion,
making money, and pleasing the masses
show the world just a little compassion
half the world could use your rations
go ahead and just give me my lashes
because I know that we're all just ashes

.... in the end
we're all just ashes
