One Last Selfish Act ©2007 Doug Spears Now the good book says it’s a mortal sin, For a tortured heart and a soul worn too thin, No doubt about it it’s a cryin shame, That the livin’ get left to bear the blame. Just one brief instant, no time to take it back, Nothing left but the dark stains of that one last selfish act. No solace in this vengeful pride, Shattered hearts left swept aside, Washed to the sea on a river of fears, Ashes to ashes and tears to tears. Its over in a moment, no point in looking back, Nothing left but the dark stains of that one last selfish act. Don’t tell me ‘bout your troubles, its time you faced the fact, There just is no excusing this pointless self attack, You pulled your hand back from that throttle and let the scene fade out to black, And there’s nothing left but the dark stains of that one last selfish act. No man no brother no father no son, And when the dam breaks down you can’t stop the flood, Burn all the bridges ‘tween heaven and hell, Steal all the pennies from the wishin’ well. Step off into the darkness, there is no turning back Nothing left but the dark stains of that one last selfish act. You pulled your hand back from that throttle and let the scene fade out to black, And there’s nothing left but the dark stains of that one last selfish act, That One Last Selfish Act.
