Hold close your treasures.
The very measure of your value here.
Within these shining walls.
Now raise them higher.
They'll last forever if you're careful now.
If you lock them all, lock them all down.

Wrapped in your precious cloak
Spun from gold.
Useless you're reaching back dead and cold.

This weight you’ve trusted.
Polished and sacred has you safe, secure.
You lie in soothing sleep.
One flash it's happening
A last desperate moment.
Now the weight falls free.
But have you sunk to deep... to breathe?

Your chest is tight, held in death's embrace.
As your eyes lift up, can you see you’re escape?
One flash fleeting glance, at the shine below.
One last freedom chance,
surrendered to the cold.
This useless gold

    Song Meaningto me this song is about the uselessness of material possessions. expensive jewelry and clothes won't help you when you're dying, they won't keep you alive. if you spend your whole life just collecting things and chasing fame and wealth, you'll likely die unhappy..having enough to survive and be happy, that's when you got plenty and shouldn't go chasing wealth, because being rich doesn't mean you'll be happy until you die.
