Lyrics

EASY STREET
i sold everything that i owned just to make a better deal
i ran up that mountain of truth just to see if it was really real
now building this castle of gold was no small feat
and now i'm living like a king of fools here on easy street
it's where the people are all stone cold
it's where we all do what we're told
yeah the jokers around here really ain't that funny
truth be told they're all about the money
and the papers everyday
turn black and white into shades of grey
it's survival of the fittest in a brave new world
it's first you get the gold and then you get the girl
it's hello welcome aboard
we're gonna raise a little money in the name of the lord
it's oh well good-bye
any tongue can tell it's a nice try nice try
i was sitting on a mountain of gold back in my hometown
not a penny to my name but my friends were all around
but I had me a wandering eye and a heart that skipped a beat
and now I'm living like a king of fools here on easy street
it's where the people are all stone cold
it's where we all do what we're told
yeah the jokers around here really ain't that funny
truth be told they're all about the money
and the papers everyday
turn black and white into shades of grey
it's survival of the fittest in a brave new world
it's first you get the gold and then you get the girl
