one bank one store one boss and even more
one church one cop one idea that can't be stopped
one mall one rule one show to keep us fooled
4 billion tenants and one landlord

it must be getting lonely, stuck at the top
when the frenzy is all over and the mergers have to stop
he's felt it accelerating for all of these years
now the king of all the hills is missing his absent peers
in the halls of the office block, he roams from door to door
not knowing that he's looking for the people that were there before
he spends his days and nights pacing through the 100th floor
the consultants have all vanished and no workers greet him any more

chorus:
what will you do when you've bought it all
what will you do when you've bought it all
you're all alone once you've bought it all
what will you do when you've bought it all
