Name of Song: Something for nothing

I don’t know about you,
I doubt that is true,
Something for nothing,
You only get what you’re due.

We all have that urge,
It’s too good to be true,
But maybe this once,
I’ll get more than I’m due.

Maybe it happens,
And get more than you earned,
An enticing new habit,
Forget the usual you’ve learned.

Chorus
Exchange is for suckers
Balance just myth,
But so need a partner
to enjoy it all with.
You get something for nothing,
An easier life,
Crime round the corner,
Say hello now to strife.

Bridge
People hate nothing,
We know something will calm,
Something for nothing,
Hooked inside a black psalm.
