Loyalty Has A Price


Loyalty found me in the dirt
Lost among pebbles and crystals
What do men know?

Miles are tall lines
Breadth are measured by memory
My memory is on vacation
How do I fix a broken song?

Length are tailored
Depth is but a shallow end
I must start my day with a smile
If I must come out a rebirth

Drunks are the pavement
Honour is but a price
Alas,
Loyalty has a tag

Now it’s time to go
I to labour
You to pleasure
For I must pay in service
The price of loyalty
