"Motherlode" as written by and Steve Halliwell Dave Allen....
In the City of Dreams all that shines isn't gold,
In the City of Reason all that shines isn't gold,
We go high on a mountain,
high on a mountain,
high on a mountain,
To find the Motherlode.

In the market place, how we're bought and sold,
In the market place, how we're bought and sold,
We go high on a mountain,
high on a mountain,
high on a mountain,
To find the Motherlode.

Here I stand in the Heart of the Nation.
HA! Hey Hey!

Government got my money, Ju-Ju man got my soul,
Government got my money, Ju-Ju man got my soul,
I go high on a mountain,
high on a mountain,
high on a mountain,
To find the Motherlode.

AND WE'RE BREAKING UP ROCKS FOR A NEW FOUNDATION,
BREAKING UP ROCKS FOR A NEW FOUNDATION,
PICKING THROUGH THE PIECES IN THE HEART OF A NATION
TO FIND THE CORNERSTONE, HEY NOW.

I wake up in the morning and I'm out of control,
I wake up in the morning and I'm out of control,
Send me high on a mountain,
Send me high on a mountain,
Send me high on a mountain,
To find the Motherlode.

AND YOU CAN'T TAKE AWAY WHAT I MADE WITH MY OWN HANDS,
YOU CAN'T TAKE AWAY WHAT I MADE WITH MY OWN HANDS,
YOU CAN'T TAKE AWAY WHAT I MADE WITH MY OWN HANDS.

Breaking up rocks for a new foundation,
Picking through the pieces at the Heart of a Nation, Yeh.
