We passed upon the stair 
We spoke of was and when 
Although I wasn't there
He said I was his friend

For years and years I roamed
I gazed a gazley stare 
At all the millions here

Who knows
Not me
We never lost control 
You're face to face 
With the man who sold the world

Who knows
Not me
We never lost control
You're face to face 
With the man who sold the world
