 Beware  of the Draw of the Seedy Side (gambling with God's goodness)
Beware of the draw of the seedy side
  The deeper you dip
 the farther you slide
 down into the abyss of despair
where fools and heartless men don't care
 Though with soft eyes they pretend
In the deep valley of deceit
their hearts are saturated in sin

Beware of the draw of the seedy side
where the spring flowers never bloom,
You try keeping good thoughts
but darkness says there's no room
         or sight  
So darkness try flipping off the switch
       to kill the light

Beware of the draw of the seedy side
when lust pours out with buckets of pride
           like a hard rain,
Men remember the act but not your name

Beware of the draw of the seedy side
  when hope has no place
 and your mother's fears become
        your disgrace
Even though you try to stay
       in the light
The seedy side makes it hard
       to do right

Beware of the draw of the seedy side
  when tears are not shed
when a little child dies,
When evil men get worse
and soft hearts have no cries

Beware of the draw of the seedy side
when you think you're always right,
Stars are only there to help
but the moon rules the night  
  
Beware of the draw of the seedy side
    where there is no trust
When grown men dress like little kids
and like grown men little kids cuss
 When there's no wisdom around
   and the vision is gone
while the dark agents take over your home
          Beware
