Xtc – Paper And Iron lyrics

Paper, iron, won't buy eden
Working for paper and for iron
Work for the right to keep my tie on
Working for paper and for iron
Work for the unicorn and lion

I pray the kids aren't starving
No chicken for the sunday carving
I'll stay for one more farthing

I take home my notes and coins every week
I'm told I'm worth much more
But the church says turn the other cheek
The other cheek
Paper, iron, won't buy eden.

I know the family needs me
Can't moan, the factory feeds me
Won't bite the hand that bleeds me

I take home my notes and coins every week
I'll inherit the earth I'm told
But the church says to remain this meek
Remain this meek
I'm still a proud man.
Won't show anybody else my wage
A blend in the crowd man
Is this anybody's golden age
Is this anybody's golden age
Is this anybody's golden age
Or am I dreaming of a golden cage

La la lo it's paper
La la lo it's iron
La la lo just paper
La la lo just iron
