Empires, Buildings and Acquisitions Mmm….mm..mm.m…mm..mm.mmm.mm Black smoke, the chimneys choking and the TV growls, It’s all but broken This closed space, is almost taken up but we don’t mind No one breaks it up The points conceded – We’ve a little bit less than needed But all in all the roof is sound the walls can hold a tune And we’re happy where we are Until the stars ignite the oceans and the earth is a glow You can try your best to move us on but we won’t go And you can’t say fairer than that No you can’t say fairer than that And when the sun goes down and they’re coming through the windows Be clear and fearless Black heart, Midas fingers and he strides the world with a smell that lingers And he won’t back down and he won’t be broken And he’ll shut your mouth – if you’re outspoken And he won’t come to discuss He’ll shoot you from a distance with a blunderbuss And all the while the country gents discreetly turn away While the odds are stacked against us see the Policemen hidden in the sand dunes (ah ah ah ah) You bought protection for your pitch and putt Who show the diggers to the backyards dig it up You should know better than that Yes you should know better than that And when the sun goes down and they’re coming through the windows In twilight, does nobody see you at all? Does nobody see you at all? Empires, buildings and acquisitions With your goons for hire and your paid permissions Oh we won’t back down to your cold ambition Though we can’t compete with your ammunition You’re a big, bad, bowl of wrong So take it on the chin son and move along For while the roof is good and strong the walls will hold this tune Though you lie when your denied you know You should know better than that Yes you should know better than that And when the sun goes down and they’re coming through the windows They’ll be coming through the windows (when the sun goes down) They’ll be coming through the windows (when the sun goes down) They’ll be coming through the windows (when the sun goes down)
