Lyrics

Is there gold, is there gold in Kabul?
I've been there in a nest of snakes
I've been there as a blackout artist
Everyone there tryna take my place

Is there gold?
Is there gold?

I was there as a midnight watchman
I was there for a masquerade
I was there as a makeup artist
Everyone trying to point the blame

Is there gold?
Is there gold?

I sawed myself in halves
I grew myself a pair of hooves
You gave to me this gift
I love you still, alone I drift

Is there gold, gold in Kabul?
I've been there in a suicide vest
I've been there with a hangman rising
Everyone tryna take the piss

Is there gold?
Is there gold?

I sawed myself in halves
I grew myself a pair of hooves
You gave to me this gift
I love you still, alone I drift

You can walk from there to China
From state to reptilian state
Holy Americans, singing vespers
Convinced that they control somebody's fate

Is there gold?
Is there gold?

I sawed myself in halves
I grew myself a pair of hooves
You gave to me this gift
I love you still, alone I drift

Is there gold?
Is there gold?
Is there gold?
Is there gold?
Is there gold?
Is there gold?
