lyrics

White pyramid, shine through the night
Red flashing light, signals of pride

Manhattan, Frankfurt area of greed
Of power corruption and lie
All the crime of our civilization
Look into the fairtower’s eye
So proud you brittle pillar
Carry the city of man
You daughter of illumination
Luxury’s greatest fan

White pyramid, shine through the night
Red flashing light, signals of pride

Merchants eat out of your hand
Dying junkies in a lane
Heart attacks in noble beds
Into your grip we’re all the same
Pyramid of illumination
Send your signals through the night
Welcome the servants of power
In your city of "love 'n light"

White pyramid, shine through the night
Red flashing light, signals of pride

Buy you a little more power
Or buy you somebody to love
Under the great fairtower
Nobody shall starve
Salesman offering weapons
For the gods daily sacrifice
Born to rule the creation
Til the power of money will rise

Deep in the banker’s jungle
Your life has got no worth
You’re just an account number
And wealth is the real king’s force
Misery, business, cheat and despair
Learn to grovel for a little more fame
Between her sheets or the lion’s mouth
Remember we’re all the same

So sell your soul and lose your conscience
Up on the highest floor
Welcome you masters and servants
In the spell of that neon-whore
