New Colony

lyrics

KEEP YOUR WISHES IN THAT BOX / ON THE DARK CLOSET SHELF / KEEP YOUR BACKS TO THE CLOCKS
IN SPITE OF YOURSELVES / KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE MAN TO THE EAST ‘CAUSE ITS TRUE
HE’S BEARING GIFTS BUT NOT A SINGLE ONE FOR YOU

WITH A FLICK OF HIS WRIST HE’LL BUILD A CASTLE IN THE SAND / SPARKLING GOLD AND GLITZ
AT THE TIP OF HIS COMMAND / ITS A SIGHT TO BEHOLD IN AN IMPOVERISHED LAND / BUT BEWARE

THERE’S A NEW COLONY HERE / WITH BRIGHT LIGHTS AND A PENCHANT FOR FLAIR
YES THERE’S A NEW COLONY HERE / AND WHAT THEY SOW I SWEAR WILL NOT BE SHARED

HE’LL BUILD A HOSPITAL BED / AND MAKE IT LOOK ITS BEST / GOOD PLACE TO LAY YOUR HEAD
AND SLEEP OFF YOUR CIVIL UNREST / HE’LL BUILD THE RAILWAY LINES
AND RIDE THEM ON HIS ONE-WAY TRAINS

AND BY THE TIME YOU’VE PULLED THE WOOL OUT FROM YOUR EYES / HE’LL HAVE HIS BELLY FULL
AND MUCH TO YOUR SURPRISE YOU’LL FIND ONCE SOLID GROUND NOW HOLLOWED OUT TO THE CORE
