Round and round, and everything keeps tumblin' down
Make a sideway move till you're standing at the edge of town
'Cause everything in this world's got you turned around

How many times must we play the game of hide and seek between ourselves
Speak about ideals passed on from somebody else
While actually the truth is only what you do
When you consider and then be honest to yourself and no one else

Chorus

Now life is strange when you think about the paradoxes we all live around
Teach the young to love their neighbor but make sure that they grow up
Love's just a game we play to occupy our time
While everybody turns aside and hides their eyes and what's inside

Chorus

Now what's the good of the life you've seen if no one's hungry for your lines
You can write a poem or song to amuse your mind
But relationships you need can only come
From those who have no clothes but they can take it
Without the fear of living naked

Chorus
