Chasing What Sparkles

All my friends are drinking their money
They think it's funny
Losing their money
All my friends are playing with marbles
don't think it's harmful
losing their marbles
All my friends think life is a party
They will be sorry
Life's not a party
All my friends are taking for granted
Their home's built with granite
Their parents' granite
All my friends are killing themselves
Their lives will be shelved
They're killing themselves
All my friends are chasing what sparkles
Just cuz it sparkles
Don't make it marble
