"Guns & Gold", also known as "Guns And Gold" and "Everybody Wants It All", is an unreleased song by Poppy.

Background

When a snippet of the song was first leaked, Titanic Sinclair claimed that the snippet was fake in a reply to a fan on Twitter, though most fans doubt the statements he has made regarding the song. An uploader could also receive a copyright warning from Island Records if the snippet was uploaded on YouTube.

Singer-songwriters Cat Pierce and Christian Langdon both helped co-write the song.

Theme

"Guns & Gold" appears to be referencing Mars Argo's video titled "Everybody Wants It All", referring to Mars' gun in the video and her famous line, "Everybody wants it all".

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Are you gonna shape up?
It's coming up tomorrow
A mission's all they gave us, but you wanna follow
Running underneath the surface of a broken town
I can't breathe the air up there, I walk it underground

[Chorus]
Guns, gold and control
Scoopin' up more than you can hold
Everybody wants it all
Wake up, they're watching us fall
Seeing your life in a crystal ball
Everybody wants it all
Everybody wants it all
Woah-oah
Everybody wants it all

[Verse 2]
Can you buy the sky?
Or can you own the ocean?
Maybe when you die, you'll find a new devotion
Will you recognize it when you see it face-to-face?
Could you hold the weight of the world on your shoulder blade?

[Chorus]
Guns, gold and control
Scoopin' up more than you can hold
Everybody wants it all
Wake up, they're watching us fall
Seeing your life in a crystal ball
Everybody wants it all
Everybody wants it all
Everybody wants it all

[Bridge]
And when you have it all
Will you be happy then?
When will you have it all?
And when you have it all
Will you be happy then?
When will you have it all?

[Outro]
Guns, gold and control
Scoopin' up more than you can hold
Everybody wants it all

Wake up, they're watching us fall
Seeing your life in a crystal ball
Everybody wants it all
Everybody wants it all
Everybody wants it all
