Riddle: I'll take you. I'll take two, once I'm taken by you. You lose. I'm chance, a devil of a dance, climbing a tree, the very next branch. I'm unforgiving, fast-lane living, quite soul gripping.

The highs and the lows, the deception, and woes, why'd you bet your own toes. I’m greed, if I’m to be believed, I'm a need that will crush you until you cannot breathe. What am I?
