When you got home from work
You just lay on your bed
Went through your pages
Some things don't make sense
Got to be solid to hold sway
Unsoldered to win the day
You're a soldier, it's okay
Tell yourself it's okay
Spinning straw into gold
Straw into gold
Straw into gold

All the maritime pines
For sails on the horizon
Closing down plays
I almost bought the mandolin
Illuminous squid
And the knife-wielding fishermen
Stationary shark
Mandarin trees laden
Spinning straw into gold
Straw into gold
Straw into gold

"That's rich coming from you," he said
"You're impossible."
In his long oil skin coat
I said, "You're no picnic neither
Now you're no picnic neither"
But the day is loudening
And I don't believe it
The banks have all broken
To cash all our chips in

Freddy gave us his advice
Slinging spirits to cubes of ice
Says we're lumps of molasses
Singing out of our asses
Spinning straw into gold
Straw into gold
Straw into gold
Gold
Straw into gold

And I got old and I need
Wild animals got you
And there's nothing more I'd like
Than to have you in the room
But the din here is loudening
And I don't believe it
Strange behind everything
And it's just a matter
Of loving
Spinning straw into gold
Straw into gold
Straw into gold
Gold
Straw into gold
Gold
Straw into gold
