They're all throwing stones at the back of my home
Kicking the dirt in the air
Well, I left to think while they're thinking I'm stoned
Well, I had no cause to be there

Well, out of this town while I had something left
To bury the fear in my head
Well, it's all just the same 'cause the city's just as bad
It's full of people like me

We've all run away
Everyone wants but nobody needs
Silver and gold
Everyone wants, but nobody needs

Well, I ran to the woods and I preached to the birds
St. Francis talking to me
Well, he said I'd find love in a pain I'd endure
If I would just listen to him

With my ear to the ground and my heart full of lead
Well I quietly listened to him teach
But with tears in his eyes, he just looked straight through me
I awkwardly waited for speech

We've all run away
Everyone wants but nobody needs
Silver and gold
Everyone wants, but nobody needs

Once I was sure that this love was the truth
Well I quickly spit in his face
I returned to my home, friends and I, we threw stones
Bragging that we knew the way
