Paper, iron, won't buy eden
Working for paper and for iron
Work for the right to keep my tie on
Working for paper and for iron
Work for the unicorn and lion

I pray the kids aren't starving
No chicken for the sunday carving
I'll stay for one more farthing

I take home my notes and coins every week
I'm told I'm worth much more
But the church says turn the other cheek
The other cheek
Paper, iron, won't buy eden.

I know the family needs me
Can't moan, the factory feeds me
Won't bite the hand that bleeds me

I take home my notes and coins every week
I'll inherit the earth I'm told
But the church says to remain this meek
Remain this meek
I'm still a proud man.
Won't show anybody else my wage
A blend in the crowd man
Is this anybody's golden age
Is this anybody's golden age
Is this anybody's golden age
Or am I dreaming of a golden cage

La la lo it's paper
La la lo it's iron
La la lo just paper
La la lo just iron
