(Brewster-Eccles)
There's a man at the backdoor
Got a special feel
Looking over his shoulder
Another hollow deal
Goin' to show you a mountain
Goin' to offer you pearls
Goin' to make you believe
You can shake the world
Soft words of wisdom, tender loving care
Gold watch gains an hour, time to spare
And they give you a title
All the things you adore
Funny how you're as hungry as before
Like an 8-ball broken in two
Another hero standing over you
So they closed your number
Didn't like your style
Some off duty business in the private file
When they showed you a mountain
When they offered you pearls
Did you really believe
You could shake the world
Like an 8-ball broken in two
Another hero standing over you
Would y' give if y' could
Would y' fall where y' stood
Would y' shatter, would it matter
Would you lie down and die like you should
Like an 8-ball broken in two
Another hero standing over you
