I may not be up on my history books
I may have to give them second look
But this is starting to get a familiar ring
Is it finally time that our winter turns to spring?

In these towers made of gold, cloaked in steel
You sometimes forget to remember what is real
Long ago they sold folks standing here in chains
Ain't it funny how some of that still remains

But things gonna change, yeah they'll change
As certain as sun and the rain
The pages will rearrange
It's the only thing that always stays the same

Verse 2
Long ago I was told about it in my school
About the sun never setting, long would she rule
We built the hill of gold a hundred miles high
Did our best to keep it from the other guys

We drank a river dry, and cut a billion trees
We build 10,000 ships to cover all the seas
But the old boat is finally starting to leak
Guess running an empire has never been cheap

Verse 3
In my city so many cast adrift
We all been waiting to get on the graveyard shift
And I can't write and I can't barely read
But I can short the market to get what I need

That girl standing with that thing high in the air
Looks pretty and the words have a certain flair
But across the bay her boyfriends stole the show
Every girl wants a diamond necklace don't you know
