Sufjan Stevens — Silver & Gold lyrics

Justice Delivers it's Death
Silver and gold, silver and gold
Everyone wishes for it
How do you measure it's worth?
Just by the pleasure it gives here on earth.

Oh I’m getting old. Oh I’m getting old. Everyone wishes for youth.
How have I wasted my life?
Trusting the pleasure it gives here on earth.

Lord, come with fire. Lord, come with fire. Everyone’s wasting their time
Storing up treasure in vain.
Trusting the pleasure it gives here on earth.

Oh I see the end. Oh I see the end. Everyone’s waiting for death
How do you measure it's worth? Justice delivers it's gift here on earth.

Silver and gold. Silver and gold. Silver and gold. Silver and gold.
