I had a golden ring and I kept it with golden things
In the Bank of a Million Dreams that was bursting at all the seams
I had a golden ring, it was such an important thing
That I kept it beneath my bed and I carried it in my head

I had a golden dream and the way it down came to me
Was through Captains of Alchemy, who came up from a steely sea
And I dreamed through the rainy night and I managed to sleep alright
And my body became so light that I managed to give it flight

'Cause I know, gold is just a trick of the light
And lead is light as a feather
So, leave me where the kids are alright
And we will all go down together

I had a golden dream and they took it away from me
And they pulled it out of my head and they showed me that it was lead

But I know, gold is just a trick of the light
And lead is light as a feather
So, leave me where the kids are alright
And we will all go down together

And that's the way it's gonna be

And if you wanna know why
That was a [Incomprehensible]
And I knew all time

But gold is just a trick of the light
And lead is light as a feather
So, leave me where the kids are alright
And we will all go down together

Gold is just a trick of the light
And lead is light as a feather
So, leave me where the kids are alright
And we will all go down together

And that's the way it's gonna be
That's the way it's gonna be
