I recorded a couple of acoustic songs at TZH studios in Zaandam. I will be posting¬†the resulting videos one at a time.¬†The first one is a new song called ’30 Pieces of Silver’.

Lyrics:

You won, you’re on top you hold the trophy up over your head
You celebrate your lucky fate and leave the rest for dead
You climb your mountain of glory and bask in adulation
With the all the grace and charm of a convict on probation

‘Cause you’ve got thirty pieces of silver in your pockets
Thirty pieces of silver and they’re weighing on your soul
Thirty pieces of silver in your pockets
Thirty pieces of silver and an empty karmic bowl

You’re way, way up high on the horse you never fed
You wear a golden crown and have Procrustes make our bed
You sparkle and you shine with a mask of charity
While a minor chord is struck under your happy melody

‘Cause you’ve got thirty pieces of silver in your pockets
Thirty pieces of silver and they’re weighing on your soul
Thirty pieces of silver in your pockets
Thirty pieces of silver and an empty karmic bowl

When your lights have lost the glow and the last bridge has been burned
The scornful all come looking and will leave no stone unturned
You’ll swim to keep from drowning but the weight will keep you down
Your thirty pieces of silver and your precious golden crown

But you’ll have had thirty pieces of silver in your pockets
Thirty pieces of silver weighing on your soul
Thirty pieces of silver in your pockets
Thirty pieces of silver and an empty karmic bowl
