"All That Money Wants" as written by and Timothy/butler Butler....
city sky comes down like rain
through all the alleys to the sea
i hear footsteps getting louder
drowning in my sleep
painted lies on painted lips
that promise heaven tastes like this
i don't believe that i believed in you
all that money wants

all that money wants
all that money wants

sunday's child will fall through faith
i feel i'm falling out of grace
grey city sky comes down like rain
to drown me in my sleep
people fade and i forget you
i hear footsteps see their faces
but it all means nothing to me now

all that money wants
all that money wants
all that money wants

city sky comes down like rain
through all the alleys to the sea
i hear her footsteps getting louder
i'm drowning in my sleep
painted lies on broken lips
that promise heaven tastes like this
came home pushed and full of pins

sunday's child will fall through faith
i feel i'm falling out of grace
i see the sky comes down like rain
to drown me in my sleep
people fade and i forget you
i hear footsteps icy faces
but it all means nothing to me
all that money wants

all that money wants
all that money wants
all that money wants

    My InterpretationCan't believe no one has tried to decipher this...such beautiful lyrics. Well..I'll give it a shot. Knowing that this came after their "Midnight to Midnight" album which they complained was "rushed" by the record company and way too over-produced, etc...I am guessing that it's an angry railing against the money dominated culture that forced them into that position.

    "but it all means nothing to me
    all that money wants"

    I'm sure someone more brilliant than I can give this a better go...
