"Jewels and Gold" as written by and Stone/stone....
I'm going round, I'm going down
To my friend's house to get myself high
It takes me to a different place
Where nothing leaves my mind

But the men in blue knocked on my door
He said I've come to kill off your kind
It?s the killing of the mind

The circus came then packed up their things
When there's no one around
We?ll be high as kings, without the things
Like jewels and gold

I'm rolling down, I'm rolling down to my hotel
Between the lines
The paperboy still looks the same
As the old get old and the young are feeling fine

A soldier came, knocked on my wall
He said I've come to kill off your kind
It?s the killing of the mind

The circus came then packed up their things
When there's no one around
We?ll be high as kings, without the things
Like jewels and gold

The circus came then packed up their things
When there's no one around
We?ll be high as kings, without the things
Like jewels and gold

    General CommentThis song’s no doubt about getting high with a friend; it states that clearly in the first few lines. It then tells a story of how it takes him away to another place. Then, “But men in blue knocked on my door,
    and said “I’ve come to kill off your kind”, it’s the killing of the mind.”, the men in blue are the policemen, busting them for doing drugs. The reference to circus I think is him hallucinating, as colours, etc. are enhanced through drug use. The second half of the song is the same as the first half but it’s changed around a bit. The ‘men in blue’ are changed to ‘soldiers with guns’ which is again a reference to how his mind is thinking whilst on drugs. Basically the entire song is about drugs and getting caught.
    LOVEEE ITTTTTT
