Ask Why

written by: OurSacredHonor

Why earn a penny when it's all given to you?
Why earn a friend when they're all paid for in dues?
Why ask more questions? You'll just get more confused
Why know the truth? It's easier to be used

You're the Enron of friends
You lied and deceived
The morals we'd once both defend
Have since died and I can't believe
You of all people
would abandon your beliefs
You've exchanged your ethics
for popularity and deceit
cook your books for profit margins
concede to buy your "friends"
your high priced stock you claim is a bargain
but your scandal will be exposed in the end

Why make a difference? Let's just cheat, steal, and lie
Why think for yourself? Just follow and get by
Why be original? Let's all just conform
Why individuals? Let's follow the norm

You're the Enron of friends
You lied and deceived
The morals we'd once both defend
Have since died and I can't believe
You of all people
would abandon your beliefs
You've exchanged your ethics
for popularity and deceit
cook your books for profit margins
concede to buy your "friends"
your high priced stock you claim is a bargain
but your scandal will be exposed in the end

Why live with morals when that's so hard to do?
Why have your standards that you hold yourself to?
Why live up to your words when they never where true?
Then ask me why I'll never
be like you
