about

A banker pleads his innocence and lays the blame at society’s door. The protagonist’s words are delivered to a backdrop of blazing guitars as he becomes increasingly desperate in his pleas.
This is the first single to be released from Dan’s forthcoming album due for release later this year which was recorded in the soon to be demolished Battersea Park studios .

lyrics

Money bring the house down

I’m not just the villain, you know?
There are many strings to my bow.
They say I’m driven by greed,
But I didn’t plant the seed.

This is the modern world,
For every boy and girl,
But who was led astray,
Then couldn’t pay?

Money brings the house down,
Money brings the house down,
Money makes the world go round

I don’t want to watch the news today,
News of another failed state,
An economy that couldn’t pay,
Another life laid to waste

This is the modern world,
For every boy and girl,
But who was led astray,
Then couldn’t pay?

Money brings the house down,
Money brings the house down,
Money makes the world go round

I can see the hate in their eyes,
It’s not me they should despise,
For letting the system win,
Then letting them do it again.

This is the modern world,
For every boy and girl,
But who was led astray,
Then couldn’t pay?

Money brings the house down,
Money brings the house down,
Money makes the world go round
