lyrics

You could take the moon and put it on a stage for her
Who knew a heart could be stolen with a handkerchief
When you live looking down in the city from your penthouse suite
We must all spoil the view of your kingdom as we slave for you
And should I feel sorry for you with your million pounds?
Did they not love you enough to give you two?
People know that you're rich 'cause you're sweating silver and gold
Drinking diamonds by the bottle while the nations topple

Glazed grey eyes can hardly see
Mind is locked in apathy
Wrapped up tight in your cocoon
Warm and safe with lots of room
Children starve while you sleep
Through the shadows killers creep
Wait in silence as they pass
Don't let out a single gasp

I could take the moon and blow it to pieces for her
And make a new one from the debris of a howling storm
I am noise, I am light, I shine like a harnessed sun
In the dark of night who do you illuminate
I feel so sorry for you with your million pounds
Oh they loved you enough to give you two?!
People know that you're rich cause your tears are silver and gold
And they make you weep, just so they can eat

All people want is silver and gold
You stay out of the light so they don't eat you whole
They don't even think they just do as they're told
Do as you're told

You live more in a minute than a hundred year old
But even with that wealth you're lifeless and cold
Guess there are some things money can't solve
Money can't solve

All people want is silver and gold
You stay out of the light so they don't eat you whole
They don't even think they just do as they're told
Do as you're told

What'd you got?
