Jelly Roll - Poor Man's Mansion lyrics

I met a rich man in his mansion, but he was poor in soul Said he could feel those demons dancin' all around his home He said "Not everything that counts can be counted" So it don't always means it counts just 'cause you can count it That's a poor man's mansion I would call it quiets walk away from all of them Watch my kingdom crumblin' and just laugh at the thought of it Pick up all them pieces, rebuild it like I'm [?] I hit bottom, then climbed out the hole I had fallen in Never would have found my way, if I would have followed trends You can loose your soul a lot faster than the dollar spends Spin the bottle, kiss the devil Pay your dues, the debt is settled If they go next it makes your head bang, it's heavy metal It's a big facade, young peaco*k spread them feathers Paint a pleasure, it's what ever, life is just for playin' checkers Wealth is not measured in treasures Quit treasurin' your wealth 'fore you die a lonely d**h Make bet I met a rich man in his mansion, but he was poor in soul Said he could feel those demons dancin' all around his home He said "Not everything that counts can be counted" So it don't always means it counts just 'cause you can count it That's a poor man's mansion Alright this man will fall several times, but can still find a way I think about that scripture every time that I'm tryin' to pray Games I ain't tryin' to play, hard to articulate I know we'll be held accountable for all the sh** we say Been dreamin' of demons and burnin' houses Burnin' ounces, stressed, I won't say a word about it I met a man who had it all, but he wished he'd let it go He said he felt to get it all he had to sacrifice his soul Highs and lows come and go, but the pain is the pain The pain ain't easier to change, then he'll remain the same I keep havin' these bad thoughts, stuck in old patterns Relive the past daily, I can hear my soul shatter The man told me I must believe in somethin' And if I don't the past will catch me, I won't see it comin' Why does the heart desire when we're in need of nothin'? And all the things we acquire take the freedom from us That's real I met a rich man in his mansion, but he was poor in soul Said he could feel those demons dancin' all around his home He said "Not everything that counts can be counted" So it don't always means it counts just 'cause you can count it That's a poor man's mansion
