For the Taking - Lyrics

I Heard it's all for the taking
Fill your pockets up till they burst
And never mind about the future
We'll be long gone before it gets worse

For now they keep us occupied
With the fancy toys that catch your eye
As long as today is paradise
I'll keep you close I'll keep you right

As long as today is what you like
Take all you want it's only for the night
But now that there's nothing left, go count your cash like this

Is forever
No tomorrow
Keep on taking
But it won't ever be enough

I heard it's all for the taking
Eat the animals till you burst
And never mind about the future
Nothings to be done we're already cursed

For now they keep us occupied
But we'll be on vacation till it blows by
As long as today is paradise
I'll keep you close I'll keep you right

And as long today is shining bright
Keep on taking everything you'd like
But now that there's nothing left, go count your cash like this

Is forever
No tomorrow
Keep on taking
But it won't ever be enough

Feelings coming over me
You got your eyes wide open tell me what you see
Maybe it's a phase we're in
Always taking more then we need
