It’s What You Do

July 14, 2012


It ain’t what you create
It’s what you do
That’s gonna be important
When you’re through

Who cares if you
Rewrote the record book
When you’re a liar and
A cretin and a crook?

So slap your name across
A thousand walls
But everything that’s built
Is gonna fall

It don’t mean much
Rising to the top
When your private life
Is one gigantic flop

A million statues
Won’t make you a god
When you’re feeding worms
Beneath the sod

It ain’t what you create
It’s what you do
That’s gonna be important
When you’re through
