You're feeling over the hill
Chasin' powder and pills
But you don't mind the taste
Of the slow burnin' waste
Until you feel like trash
Ya might as well have a gas
Until you feel like trash
Ya might as well have a blast

Deep down in your heart
Well, you know you can't hide
Still you know what you're runnin' from
Better than I
And when they ask you why
You say the joker is wild
And when they ask you why

You say the joker is wild

When your skin starts to crawl
And your fingers twitch
And your veins are screaming
For some kinda fix
Well, they ask you why
You say the joker's wild

If there was only a way
To make you understand
That the game that you're playing
Has gotten out of hand
And when they ask you why
You say the joker is wild
And when they ask you why

You say the joker is wild
