(intro) Fool's gold, sparkling like the midnight sun Fool's gold, touch the ivory handles on my gun (sold out to me?), Charlatans and thieves (so wrong not to see?), Jokers and the priests? Fool's gold, stranded on a (point gloss?) Sea Fool's gold, nothing here and nothing to see (sold out to me?), The weasels and the feared (and it's so wrong not to see?), The ghosts of the disappeared All gone away...
(instrumental) Sometimes, when I'm touched by love, by hate, or by the grace of God Sometimes, in the dark when hope is fading, Or no longer flies, I won't sympathize Spend my time getting high
Someone came to rescue me, lit up like a Christmas tree Tired of living on my own, someone came and take me home
Sometimes, this jungle life is boring, pawing, Ready for a feast, someone kill the beast Outside, streets are teeming, breathing heavy, Ready to explode, my brother's heavy load, What you reap is what you sow
Someone came to rescue me Lit up like a Christmas tree Stranded here on my own Someone came to take me home
Someone came to rescue me, lit up like a Christmas tree When I'm out here on my own, someone came and took me home
Someone came to rescue me, lit up like a Christmas tree Stranded here on my own, someone came and took me home
