I was free to wonder

I couldn’t bribe a wino on what I used to make
My fortune was as sure as the wind
But I was free to wonder and time was on my hands
It was mine to burn and to bend

Freedom for freedom, call that an even scheme
Give me time to wonder and to dream
I need the money; they’ll take the time
Down to the land of the bottom line

Then there came a chance to make some steady dough
Bouncing up my alley to the door
You fill your clothes with keys, and damned responsibilities
You trade in the maybe for the sure

Freedom for freedom, call that an even scheme
Give me time to wonder and to dream
I need the money; they’ll take the time
Down to the land of the bottom line

Land of the Bottom Line, John Gorka
