Story Behind the Song

The story is a question for the people who are running the world and causing wars through greed. And asking if they were stripped of all the riches they have would they still feel as important. And if they were to be questioned about their own self would they shine through as a decent person or not.

Lyrics

If I took away all your money
And all your possessions too
and put you in a place
with the dying human race
would you still shine on
would you still shine on
would you
would you still believe that you are better than me

If I took away all your guns
your ammunition too
and stripped you down to the bare bones
and sat and stared at you
would you still shine on
would you still shine on
would you
would you still believe that you are better than me

If I took you on my rocket ship
and took you too the sky
and you looked down on your marble home
and you could see it die
would you still shine on
would you still shine on
would you
would you still believe that you are better than me

If I took away all your money
And all your possessions too
and put you in a place
with the dying human race
would you still shine on
would you still shine on
would you
would you still believe that you are better than me
