You got your magic touch
And you know so much
It must be easy for you
To turn me into gold

You got a pretty strong hand
Backed up with your talisman
That hangs from your neck
You mind that, you don't show

You got the keys to the city
But you'll find no place to stay
'Cause for all your talk
You still got nothing to say

And your talisman
Like the wind blows sand
Must fly away

Here's a turn to move
And half the world will give you too
Oh, caught up in your gravity issues

Just to leave us with
Ridin' to the fields we shared
Ah, takin' us closer, closer
To our groove

As you look to the skies
With empty eyes and say
I've got the gift of the world
But I still don't understand

And my talisman
Like the wind blows sand
Must fly away

As you look to the skies
With empty eyes and say
I've got the gift of the world
And I still don't understand

He's got the light of the world
But still can't see his way
As he's ready to fight
But there's nothing left to slay

And your talisman
Like the wind blows sand
Must fly away
