Ladytron – White Gold lyrics

Back from the window
Everything's subtle
Temporary sanctuary

Look through the window
Everything's subtle
Tailored to fit, but nothing's that simple

Gold, you will always come to me
With the power of deception
Gold won't ever comfort me
The color of deception
The color of deception

Move closer
Subterfuge
Illusion's there for all to see

There's no one left to rescue me
Glass and stone, it cuts like a knife
And gold won't ever comfort me

Gold, you will always come to me
With the power of deception
Gold won't ever comfort me
The color of deception
The color of deception

    Everything is not quite what it seems. The attainment of wealth will never make up for how detached we have become from the earth and eachother. When one realizes how fake and self absorbed we all are, it cuts to the very heart of what we believed to be normal. People die so we can live our lives with our material possesions, technology, consumer goods. No amount of wealth can make up for what the world and its people have lost in the name of capitalism. No amount of wealth will ever offer any sort of true comfort in ourselves and our society. Don't let the attainment of wealth corrupt your heart.

    I'm sure ladytron fans would hate the idea. But this would be a great bond opening titles track. And yes, its commercial capitalism benefitting the producers, but at least ladytron would be paid and enjoy the benefit of donating their capital to any cause. The melody has got the attitude, and the chorus is a dark hook! Brilliant. The message dominates what I certainly feel to be the message that the population of nearly the entire world is feeling right now in 2012. I will call my opinion/meaning 'the color of deception. : p
