"The percentage you're paying is too high a price, while you're living beyond all your means. And the man in the suit has just bought a new car, from the profit he's made on your dreams. But today you just read that the man was shot dead, by a gun that didn't make any noise. It wasn't a bullet that laid him to rest, 'twas the low spark of high heeled boys"... —Steve Winwood/Jim Capaldi
