lyrics

Gold

One billion people captive by destiny
The lure of a market so vast and so virgin
We open our arms to the man with the keys to the grove
Freedom is relative to your point of origin
Turn on your television, write your Senator
Or run.. From the square.. From the tanks.. From the bloodshed left there..

It’s like Gold
It’s like Gold
And we're sold on the prospect of riches untold

The smoke hangs in the air
The players watch nervously
As the cards are dealt to their opponents respectively
Guarding their keep, from the drug
They all too well know
Fortune’s dwindle, nerves fray
Temper’s rise, voices raise
Then out comes the nine
Son you’re not leaving alive..

It’s like Gold
It’s like Gold
And we fold at the prospect of riches untold.

The motel room is secluded
No one is the wiser
Their spouses respectively
Home in their houses
Passion explodes, their lives in to pieces untold
Trust and Deceit both have their value
If you coldly calculate the dips and the rises
Your left in the end with yourself and a future unknown It’s like Gold

It’s like Gold
Will we fold at the prospect of riches untold
It’s like Gold
It's like Gold
Will I fold at the prospect of riches untold...

Noted for his passionate performances and rugged vocal style, Elie’s music is writerly, invigorating and, perhaps most important of all, utterly compelling whilst challenging the listener with its message.
