    The gold stops us
    The gold always did
    The gold took more lives than Uranium
    Than Plutonium

    The thunder approaches
    The heavy sighing of the monster

    Come to break the heavy weather
    Come to silence all the singing birds
    Tearing up the sky like paper
    White-welding through dark steel of clouds
    And the release of the sudden rain

    The gold stops us
    The gold always did
    The gold took more lives than Uranium
    Than Plutonium. Pandemonium.
    The Gold!

    Jet engines and demolition
    And the summer rain
    Like finding a lost child

    The roads are travelled by many
    Like promises of peace
    And some choose not to go
    The f e a r looks like bravado
    It always did
    I see them waiting, smiling
    On the borders in dawn's mist
    Or lost to the world in their upturned boats
    I'll be free or I'll die trying to be
    Trying to BE.
