Lead Over Gold

Why do people live this way?
They shake all night, and slave all day
and get nothing.
They have nothing.

And when exactly, were we sold?
That a good boy does just what he’s told?
Why did you choose lead, over gold?
When did we choose lead over gold?

They said “Take- anything you want!”
But you never got a lot…
you never got a single thing worth anything.
Wake up- it’s later than you know,
and you have to go…
‘Cause now it’s time to punch the clock.
Now it’s time to punch the clock.

Every day and all brand new,
it’s an endless re-run, starring me and you.
Watch us running in the wrong directions,
monkeys fascinated by our own reflections.

The distant prize, the open doors
reveal themselves- as painted walls.
A way to keep the hunger up
so we all run for the rabbit
when the
gate
goes
up.

Run for the rabbit when the gate goes up.
Run for the rabbit when the gate goes up.
Run for the rabbit when the gate goes up.
Run for the rabbit when the gate goes up.
Run for the rabbit when the gate goes up.
Run for the rabbit when the gate goes up.
Run for the rabbit when the gate goes up.

Voice Of Authority:
RUN FOR THE RABBIT WHEN THE GATE GOES UP

They said “Take, anything you want”
But you never got a lot…
you never got a single thing worth anything.
Wake up,
it’s later than you know…
and you have to go.
‘Cause now it’s time to punch the clock.
Now it’s time to punch the clock.

(stop stop stop stop)

Lead Over Gold
Lead Over Gold
Lead Over Gold
Lead Over Gold

suck out all the life
till the money runs dry
yeah, there’s worms in the apple
and there’s trails in the sky
a lot more money
(and a lot less soul)
bang the peg into the hole
the peg into the hole
suck out all the life
till the money runs dry
yeah, there’s worms in the apple
and there’s trails in the sky
a lot more money
(and a lot less soul)
bang the peg into the hole
the peg into the hole (fade)
