"Lifestyles of the Rich & Nameless" as written by and Benji/madden Madden....
I know a scene you ought to see
I read it in Luke 16
So let me be I wanna set the scene
A wealthy dude his name’s unknown inside his sprawling home
Stuffing his mouth with that life of ease
While Lazarus is thin and weak, down the driveway on the street
I don’t think he will survive
If he could get that nameless dude to feed him some leftover food
He’d take the crumbs now as they’d fall, if they would fall (Faaallll)

Lifestyles of the rich and the nameless
The solid gold bracelets don’t make you blameless
His money is not the problem
He forgot Lazarus; Think Jesus saw them

Did you know the rich and nameless dude eventually died
And when he woke up things were on the fiery side
With Lazarus across the chasm and Abraham talked to him
He said, “You know it’s really hot in here, my throat is cracked
Send Lazarus to me, O Father Abraham
He can always just run some water down to me”
“I’d like to help you get a drink,” Abraham said, “Honestly,
I don’t think that would suffice
But he’s already paid his dues
Now he is somewhere else than you
You think that’s someone else’s fault? Maybe not”

Lifestyles of the rich and the nameless
They’re always so shameless
God plays no favorites
It’s funny yet such a shocker
How he demanded, “Bring me some water!”

Lifestyles of the rich and the nameless
The one with no status God made so famous
It’s funny to watch the process
Because somebody prosperous He made anonymous

Lifestyles of the rich and the nameless
Designer clothes get spots and holes; Let’s shop at Payless
Lifestyles of the rich and nameless
Lights out for the rich and nameless
Find out what 2:16 James says
