Will You Be Satisfied?

Look out boys, they're leaving us behind

Soon they'll be out beyond the line
Soon there'll be nothing left to find
Look out boys they're leaving us behind

We finally broke the fragile web
Gave all our wild horses their head
Hammered in the nails and made the bed
We finally broke the fragile web

 

And when the last deal has been done, and the last game has been won
When you stand and face the great divide will you be satisfied?

 

These days it's all for fortune or for fame
It's not what you give it's what you gain
And it's not how you play the game
These days it's all for fortune or for fame

 

And now there is no lie that can't be sold
Now there is no truth that can't be told
There's no mystery that won't unfold
And now there is no lie that can't be sold

 

And when the last deal has been done, and the last game has been won
When you stand and face the great divide will you be satisfied?

 

Isn't it a pity, it's sin
We all dug the hole we're falling in
We haven't learned a thing from where we've been
Isn't it a pity, it's sin

 

And the captain, he won't take the blame
Though the ship is gong down in flames
And the crew are all certified insane
But the captain, he won't take the blame

And when the last deal has been done, and the last game has been won

When you stand and face the great divide will you be satisfied?
