A Grandfather took his Grandson

To the place where the Battle was won

But years later the Battle was lost

And their people are still payin’ the cost.

‘Cause it can all be taken away

Any moment, anytime, any day

Pay close attention to what I say.

‘Cause it can all be taken away.

A Veteran stood on the land he once owned

Before the Bankers foreclosed on his home

Then the Floods came and washed it away.

Things do come full circle they say.

‘Cause it can all be taken away.

Any moment, anytime, any day

Pay close attention to what I say.

‘Cause it can all be taken away.

The Brothers did not get along

With their Father, loved provin’ him wrong.

Then their Father was taken one night

Leavin’ them with the ghosts of their fights.

‘Cause it can all be taken away

Any moment, anytime, any day

Pay close attention to what I say.

‘Cause it can all be taken away.

That Hourglass constantly flows

How much Sand’s in the Glass, we don’t know.

We’re all granted just so many days

Before we are taken away.

It can all be taken away.

Any moment, anytime, any day

Pay close attention to what I say.

‘Cause it can all be taken away.
