I was slipping through the cracks
Of a stolen jewel
I was tightrope walking in two-ton shoes
Now somebody is talking about a
Third world war
I've been caught in a Mind Riot
And the police said this was normal control
I've been caught in a Mind Riot

The candle's burning yesterday
Somebody's best friend died
I've been caught in a mind riot
Mind Riot

I was crying from my eye, teeth and
Bleeding from my soul
And I sharpened my wits on a dead man's skull
I built an elevator from his bones
I've been caught in a Mind Riot
Had climb to the top floor
To stamp out the coals
I've been caught in a Mind Riot

The candle's burning yesterday
Somebody's friend died
I've been caught in a mind riot

I'm tied within

The candle's burning yesterday
Somebody's friend died
I've been caught in a mind riot


I'm tied within
I'm luck's last match struck
In the pouring down wind

Mind Riot
Mind Riot
Mind Riot
Mind Riot
