The city rises with the sun
Rushing around to get ahead
My eyes they couldn't see the drought
For the sprinklers on the lawn kept it green

I pull the shade to keep it out
I know my future turns in the daylight
It's simple, all I want is more

But I keep coming back
To steal from you
I add it to a bottomless hole
And I'll keep coming back
As long as I can sleep at night
I don't know where it goes
You know I'll give it back
But I need it now, come at me now
You'll have to pry it from my greedy hands
You'll have to pry it from my greedy hands

I wipe the steam off of the mirror
A barrier between my master
Green takes the stage to make them proud
Thankful my parents raised me right

But I keep coming back
To steal from you
I add it to a bottomless hole
And I'll keep coming back
As long as I can sleep at night
I don't know where it goes
You know I'll give it back
But I need it now, come at me now
You'll have to pry it from my greedy hands
You'll have to pry it from my greedy hands

Lord of all
As am I
I take what's yours and call it mine
You will live, I will die
I think it backwards, you and I
