Based on the character of Daniel Plainview from the film There Will be Blood.


Little girl wanna find it
and she don't-don't know how
Little boy wanna fight it
cuz he oh so proud
So delighted
you decided to show your face to the crowd
And I find that the sinners
get by on their own
And I find that winners
don't mind if you don't
but it's got to end somewhere
this shit is gettin' out of control

And the children sing...

If I had a little more money
then I'd have a little more time
Ya know I hate to worry 'bout money
so why is money always on my mind?
If I had a little more money
I'd have more time for you
and we could spend all that money
doin' any ol' thing that you like to do

I want it
Why don't I own this?!

What's worth your trouble?
What's worth your trust?
If you pay me double
I'll tell you once
But the old advice is true --
it's gone as just as soon as it comes

You can swap that out for a new one
Tradin' up a life
like you raisin' up a new son
Shocked, burnt
like a Shogun food-run
Are you done with your
plate yet?
I mistaked ya for a cool one
Now the snakes is waitin' on a boot-hunt
cuz I want what you want
It's true
I can't tell a lie or deny the truth so
I guess we in the same boat huh?
Pioneers out gunnin' for the goldrush
although most of us are gettin' coal dust
and the coal lungs
When the snow comes we'll get froze up
And if the flow does too, well...
you can go ahead and blame the cash
And if the tap starting running again, well...
you can take it back
