Lyrics

Finders Keepers
© 2015 Starburst-Sahlen

If winners take the spoils
And the losers eat the cake*
And the meek inherit nothing
While the wealthy feast on steak
Will the promise of forever
Really live beyond this life
Or will none of us remember
After dying in the night?

(chorus)
Finders keepers, losers weepers
Selfishness abounds
I smell trouble in the rubble
Of this truth that I have found
Holy smoker, legal toker
Take another look
Finders keepers, losers weepers
Mind games are afoot

If my brother is my keeper
And my enemy my friend
Will the distant dance for freedom
Ever reach its final end?
Will the naysayers find wisdom
The soothsayers the will
To launch a road for humans
To use the worlds' best skills

(chorus)
Finders keepers, losers weepers
Selfishness abounds
I smell trouble in the rubble
Of this truth that I have found
Holy smoker, legal toker
Take another look
Finders keepers, losers weepers
Mind games are afoot

(bridge)
Shaker, shaker, premiere baker
Share cake with us
Mother Nature help us fakers
Live today or bust

(chorus)
Finders keepers, losers weepers
Selfishness abounds
I smell trouble in the rubble
Of this truth that I have found
Holy smoker, legal toker
Take another look
Finders keepers, losers weepers
Mind games are afoot
Finders keepers, losers weepers
Mind games are afoot


* see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Let_them_eat_cake "Let them eat cake" is the traditional translation of the French phrase "Qu'ils mangent de la brioche", supposedly spoken by "a great princess" upon learning that the peasants had no bread. Since brioche was made from dough enriched with butter and eggs, making it more expensive than bread, the quote supposedly would reflect the princess's disregard as to the condition of the people.

Great subtle lyric with a nice lilt in the method.

I liked the mood of the song- makes you think. Good instrumentation. It does have a bit of a country feel to it as well. Not sure I'd classify it under Folk.
