lyrics

They say beauty is in order
What's left over in so few hands
But the landlords spell their doom
Wanting the jewelry the merchants have

The price they paid could buy them
A thousand different men
And though they get the diamond
Power leaves them
And commerce wins instead

Here comes the silent revolution
Moving slowly, no certainty
Interdependence, cultivation
From no design comes prosperity

Without any intention
Without beneficence
The feudal system's dying
Lords made obsolete from
Their childish vanity

Without any intention
Without beneficence
The feudal system's dying
Lords made obsolete from
Their childish vanity
