I opened up the window
I put down the phone
I closed the door
Made sure I was alone.
They won't let you out
Without shame and disgrace.
The world of money, well,
Honey, it's a dark, dark place.

Crunch them numbers
Make 'em make sense
Check the status
On each side of the fence.
Wolf gonna lie down
Among the lambs.
The world money
It ain't nothing you would understand.

Squeezing & bleeding
Draining &feeding.
You ain't hungry,
You just can't stop eating.
You never ever can satisfy
That empty feeling.
The world of money
Always gonna leave you needing.

You can't really fight it,
it won't let go.
Anywhere you been,
it always knows.
It will find you
Remind you of your misdeeds.
Your sweet little secrets
Ain't buried that deep.
See, the world of money,
It ain't gonna let you get much sleep...
So I'm stepping to the edge now,
Looking down below.
I feel the wind on my face,
I hear the traffic flow.
They won't let you think twice.
You gotta make decisions.
The world of money,
It ain't something everyone can live in
