This is an Emerson, Lake & Palmer cover.
“Lucky Man” is the story of a guy who had it all: babes, riches and fame. Everyone adored him, especially when he went to fight for honor in war. But he died while fighting, and all the fame and riches couldn’t save him.
One can spend their life trying to get the biggest house possible, or attaining some great material wealth, but is not that wealth only temporary? Eventually we pass on, our consciousness may experience higher dimensional forms of existence (if you’ve had of glimpse of that) or it’s simply lights out (if you choose to believe that).
The main question is: Do material things truly make us happy? Or is happiness a pure state of being that we can choose to experience regardless of our material standings? You decide!
