The story is told of the power of gold
And its lure on the unsuspecting
It glitters and shines it badgers and blinds
And constantly needs protecting

Balance the cost of the soul you lost
With the dreams you lightly sold
Are you under the power of gold?

The letters and calls
Got you climbing the walls
And everyone wants a favor
They beg to remind you
Of times left behind you
But you know the past is a loser

The face you're wearing is different now
And the days run hot and cold
Are you under the power of gold, the power of gold?

You're a creature of habit run like a rabbit
Scared of a fear you can't name
Your own paranoia is looming before you
But nobody thinks that it's a game

Balance the cost of the soul you lost
With the dreams you lightly sold
Then tell me that you're free of the power of gold, the power of gold

The women are lovely the wine is superb
But there's something about the song that disturbs you
...
