If you take off their jewels
they all look like fools
Weighing their diamonds
and gold on the scales
Burning the woods
to build a new skyscraper
building and building
to climb up to the sun

He thinks that he rules
in a kingdom so great
It's a mad orchestra
that he is forced to conduct
He thinks that money
would buy him a way
Out and away, so they say,
any day now

But money is lonely
when you count it alone
You can buy company
Can you buy truth?
You can buy, you can sell
and bargain and trade
You can grow a money tree
and grow weak in its shade

Late at night
on his lonely couch
when he sits down
darkness descends
and in the darkness
with his damn useless crown
He only wants to be
a simple man from town
