Lyrics:

We lowered the mast and we pushed off to shore.
And we stood all aghast at the beauty we saw.
The natives were naked, the young and the old.
As we stood on the shore of the City of Gold.

What more could we want? What more could we ask?
I questioned the motive. I questioned my task.
For men have gone blind and hearts have grown cold.
All for a view of the City of Gold.

And the natives they danced 'neath the Moon on the beach.
And the fruits they were plenty, and all within reach.
For power and greed, should our souls have been sold.
As we stood on the foothills of the City of Gold.

By the grace of the King, by the glory of God.
By the power invested, we struck them down hard.
And the story gets worse every time it gets told.
When they tell of the ruins of the City of Gold.

There's blood on my hands, and there's shame in my heart.
For one never knows in which one may take part.
May a lesson be learned to the stout heart and bold.
And those that go seeking a City of Gold.
And those that go seeking a City of Gold.

Hey, Hey……
