  • Leonard put on his sunglasses, and he dialed the telephone
    Left a message with his loved ones
    "Don't wait up, I won't be home"
    He scribbled on some hotel station
    Every now you see me, now you don't
    His put his money in a briefcase, and he gave it to the man
    Who took it to the Cayman Islands, and he buried it in the sand
    So when the hackers hacked the system
    He'll be on the beach with a Mai Tai in his hand

    Oh, but thats alright
    Yeah, that's ok
    When it gets too tired
    Gonna slip away

    You got the money
    You got the fame
    When you see me comin', you'll know my name
    Hide in the shadows, til' your dying day
    Revelation's a heartbeat away

    Well the devils in the details, as the details start to leak
    So it is as what's predicted, you can feel it on the streets
    There ain't no silver in the bank vault
    There's just paper where the money used to be
    Even god ain't gonna fix it
    You got here all on your own
    You bet the president is sweating, or Russia's blowing up the phone
    Deny, deny everything
    But still, let's throw that rabid dog a bone

    Oh, but thats alright
    Yeah, that's ok
    When it gets too tired
    Gonna slip away

    You got the money
    You got the fame
    When you see me comin', you'll know my name
    Hide in the shadows, til' your dying day
    Revelation's a heartbeat away
    Heartbeat away
    Heartbeat away
    Heartbeat away
    Heartbeat away
    Heartbeat away
    Revelation's a heartbeat away
    Away

    [Bridge]
    "Well there's gonna be a new day"
    Said the man with the red face
    With his finger on a button, as he hums Amazing Grace
    And he ponders the eternal, on his private jet
    As he heads off into space

    [Chorus]
    You got the money
    You got the fame
    When you see me comin', you'll know my name
    Hide in the shadows, til' your dying day
    Revelation's a heartbeat away
    You got the money
    When you see me comin', you'll know my name
    Hide in the shadows, til' your dying day
    Revelation's a heartbeat away
    Heartbeat away
    Heartbeat away
    Heartbeat away
    Heartbeat away
    Heartbeat away
    Revelation's a heartbeat away
    Heartbeat away, yeah Writer/s: JEFFREY TROTT, SHERYL SUZANNE CROW
