There's a man at the backdoor
Got a special feel
Looking over his shoulder
Another hollow deal

Goin' to show you a mountain
Goin' to offer you pearls
Goin' to make you believe
You can shake the world

Soft words of wisdom, tender loving care
Gold watch gains an hour, time to spare
And they give you a title
All the things you adore
Funny how you're as hungry as before

Like an 8-ball broken in two
Another hero standing over you

So they closed your number
Didn't like your style
Some off duty business in the private file
When they showed you a mountain
When they offered you pearls
Did you really believe
You could shake the world

Like an 8-ball broken in two
Another hero standing over you

Would why' give if why' could
Would why' fall where why' stood
Would why' shatter, would it matter
Would you lie down and die like you should

Like an 8-ball broken in two
Another hero standing over you
