Sunlight Bathed the Golden Glow

Felt

From the classic track by Felt (YouTube)

[aka "Sunlight Killed the Golden Goose"]

You're trying to fool somebody, but you end up fooling yourself
You’re reading from that book of Keynes’,
but you don't know what it’s about
I listened to you, now maybe you'll listen to me
You're trying much too hard to make markets trade like a dream

You’ve stepped in it, big time; now you're stepping out of line
If we made a movie of it, would you forward guide your lines?
Stop all this over-thinking, ain’t gonna do no good
Your global QE scheme isn’t doin’ what it should

You’re tapping down the upswings, some might say you’ve eaten crow
Stop making our stock picks for us, stop talkin’ when you don’t know
Stop spinning when we’re sinking, ain’t gonna do no good
You’ll see that price discovery is … ah, sometimes good

You're trying to fool somebody, but you end up fooling yourself
You’re reading Krugman’s column, but you don’t know what it’s about
I listened to you, now, maybe you'll listen to me
You’re trying much too hard to make our world a lapdog of Keynes

I’ve put up with you, now maybe you’ll listen to me
You're trying much too hard to make markets evergreen
