Come on now the curtain is drawn
And tomorrow stands before you
Dressed and draped in a cold black cape
Like a crow he ignores you
Look again there's a beautiful girl
Covers sin in a holy land shroud
It's the great disappearing act
Done once again for the marveled crowd

As we're chasing our tails
And biting our nails
So strong and frail

[Chorus:]
And we build and tear down
Build and tear down
Build and tear down
With barely the time to say
How did it get so late
I'll never know

Step outside and now the doors open wide
And the minions are eager to find him
Put a million miles under your heels
And you're still behind him
Cover your clocks with your chains and your locks
While the seasons get hotter and colder

Stretch your faces and lie about your ages
And still you're going to get older

As we're chasing our tails
And biting our nails
So strong and frail

[Chorus]

I'll never know

Hang on till your fingers break
And your hands unwind
He will escape you every time
From under your pillows
Through open windows
And out on the rails

[Chorus]

I'll never know
I'll never know
