I had a golden ring, and I kept it with golden things
In the Bank of a Million Dreams that was bursting at all the seams
I had a gold ring. It was such an important thing
That I kept it beneath my bed, and I carried it in my head
I had a golden dream, and the way it down came to me
Was through Captains of Alchemy, who came up from a steely sea
And I dreamed through the rainy night, and I managed to sleep alright
And my body became so light, that I managed to give it flight
Because I know gold is just a trick of light
And lead is light as a feather
So, leave me where the kids are alright
And we will all go down together
I had a golden dream, and they took it away from me
And they pulled it out of my head, and they showed me that it was lead
