Somebody said maybe he's a fool, but excuse me
Somebody said that he found a jewel, and much less love
Somebody said that he knows for sure, but don't confuse me
Who's gonna make what's dirty pure, good as gold

Not man big (not man big), no construction
Not man true, it's a bigger plan than you'll ever do
Not man said (not man said), some production
Not man made, from the east to the west it's a million miles between

Who's got a plan when the plan is made, ain't nobody
Looking for arrangements already made, as good as green
Where is the government to come to aide. Ha, there's too much business
I saw a candle sittin' in the shade, getting old

Not man big (not man big), no construction
Not man true (not man true), it's a bigger plan than the likes of you
Not man said (not man said), some production
Not man made (not man made), from the east to the west it's a million miles between

One look around you can see it clear, there's too much trouble
One look around and there's nothin' near, the cupboard's bare
Talking heads got a million words, but they don't say nothin'
Who's gonna make what's dirty pure, good as gold
Good as gold, yeah yeah yeah
