Sundown in the Paris of the prairies 
Wheat kings have all their treasures buried
And all you hear are the rusty breezes 
Pushing around the weather vane Jesus

In his Zippo lighter, he sees the killer's face 
Maybe it's someone standing in a killer's place 
Twenty years for nothing, well that's nothing new, besides
No one's interested in something you didn't do
Wheat kings and pretty things
Let's just see what the morning brings

There's a dreamy dream where the high school is dead and stark 
It's a museum and we're all locked up in it after dark 
Where the walls are lined all yellow, grey and sinister 
Hung with pictures of our parents' prime ministers 
Wheat kings and pretty things
Wait and see what tomorrow brings

Late breaking story on the CBC 
A nation whispers, "we always knew that he'd go free" 
They add, "you can't be fond of living in he past
'Cause if you are then there's no way that you're gonna last"
Wheat kings and pretty things
Let's just see what tomorrow brings
Wheat kings and pretty things
Oh, that's what tomorrow brings
