In The Village



In the village, a long time ago
People livin’, with little more than clothes
With a good book, and a handful of pearls
Till they discovered, all the riches in the world

Now in the village, everybody got themselves a maid
In the village, everybody builds a real high gates
In the village they say, “smile while you slave”
Keep your face out of the papers and collect your pay

In the village

And to the village, prospectors came for gold
Bought the king flowers, exotic gifts untold
And from the flatlands, a city did rise
From a grain of sand, the tallest tower touched the sky

Now in the village, everybody knows your name
In the village, everybody wants you to think the same
In the village, opinion is the only rule
1st they stone you, then congratulate you
as they change the rules

In the village

Now the village, is hard to generalize
To get the real gist, get up on the inside
You see there’s more to the picture, than meets the eye
You see there’s more to the story, than just one side

Now in the village, something is being lost
Now in the village, they a draw a line that you cant cross
Now in the village, they say this is just how it goes
I got mine, and he got his, for the rest who knows?
