Legends that fall

He was the strongest
The fastest
The fiercest
The fearless
With trophies
And fan clubs
And chain stores
The world adores
His ruthlessness
But truthfulness
Isn't something he knows

Where ever he goes
The cameras are flashing
When ever he moves
There are people at his side
Even at home
He's always surrounded
Never alone
There's no where to hide

When will this fortune leave me
I fear the world will eat me
Heart and soul for all I am worth
Nothing to them but
Money and girth
I fought my fights long and hard
Basked in the glow of a million faces
Adored by all the races
But I am sick of these places
Decked with diamonds
Laid out in gold
Where are the people I grew up with
My friends from back home
Have the years been fair to them
Are they standing on their own
All we ever wanted in this life
Was a home to lay down in
But look at me now
Ive lost all my kin
Only news crews and cliques
I possess all the wealth
Any man can ever want
But its truly not enough
Money can buy me friends
I can choose any family
But what I want is my own back

I am sick of this heart ache
Fed up with the lies
Its time to go home
Help others survive
Here you go my brothers
Share the bounty of my bed
Don't worry about the output
I've got houses to spare
This is for you sisters
With those children on the streets
Clean up your selves and get up on your feet
Why are you fallen laying in this filth and pain
If he wont step up then move on again
My mother I see you crying yet all I can do is stare
How can someone so lovely be broken in despair
You've raises generations on your meager income
now that they've grown up they've left you in a home
but its not fair you shouldn't be here but back where you belong
the house whose walls speak to your heart
the kitchen who holds your memory in every meal
well all of you listen closely sit up heres the deal
You know who I am and I want to know you
Come over here and heres what we're gonna do
Hold out your hand and make a wish
Anything you demand I will provide at a tryst
I am the genie just rub me the right way
And ill lift life to your standard any day

He was the strongest
The fastest
The fiercest
The fearless
With trophies
And fan clubs
And chain stores
The world adores
His ruthlessness
But truthfulness
Isn't something he knows

Where ever he goes
The cameras are flashing
When ever he moves
There are people at his side
Even at home
He's always surrounded
Never alone
There's no where to hide
But now that he's given it all up his time he bides
Is this just another publicity stunt
He has more cash or is he really blunt
How can a rich man give it all away
What is his problem he's made a mistake

Yet even now many nations look up to him
Not for what he was then doing his thing
A celebrity of immensity
A man of proclaim
But for his humanity
For starting over again
For giving to the broken
The down trodden
The poor
For giving it all up
And nothing more
