Those who built empires
dream now in the shadows of
church spires.

One day
we'll all be equalised
because every one of us dies,

what a helluva price to pay.

I think that I've had a win
if I can open my eyes
and begin
as I mean to go on.

At last,
the drawbridge comes down
the weekend's in town
and I have a seat for the show.
