Shell Corporation ©2016 Robert George BMI

She was workin’ as the Chief of Staff
For a big producer out in Hollywood
She believed his dreams, all his words and La La schemes
And invested all the cash she could
Then one day a bunch of Feds showed up
And she saw it all go bad
None of it made sense, he was shredding documents
With a chopper waiting on his helipad

Now he’s sippin’ Mai Tais in some island nation
His words were just wind through a shell corporation


Six months later she was wand’ring on the beach
With a choking sense of failure in her chest
Couldn’t pay her loans and all she thought she owned
Had been sold for food or repossessed
And that beach was full of old beer cans
Boxes, seashells and a coupla broken kites
Life felt full of greed, people toss what they don’t need
She was losin’ all her sense of wrong and right

Surely there’s much more to breathing and creation
Life can’t be as worthless as a shell corporation


Life is so much more than what we lack
You can’t see the puzzle until you step back
And you can’t rely on someone else
If you wanna make something of yourself

Then ideas seemed to float ashore,
She found what she wasn’t lookin’ for
And the pieces flowed together one by one
Cos she filled a box with useless things,
Seashells off the sand and yards of string
Then she stood there smiling in the setting sun


Bought some rags and nail polish at an old Shell station
From the lifeless sand she grew her shell corporation


Though friends thought she was reckless,
She sold her first seashell necklace
From a little stand along a beachfront road
At first it was hard and stressful,
But she soon became successful
She rebuilt her faith and paid back what she owed


Step by crooked step we reach our destination
And she called her business her “shell corporation”


Life is so much more than what we lack
You can’t see the puzzle until you step back
And you can’t rely on someone else
If you wanna make something of yourself
