lyrics

FOOL ON FIRE

I give it all I got but get back nothing
This trip, like my investments, no returns
I thought by now we’d be left here with something
You agreed but never understood the terms

People they may come, people they may go
We understand that all the world’s a show
The players they may change, but the beat will still remain
We’re dancing ‘til we’re dead upon the floor

I cough I wheeze I cannot breathe I will not be stopped now
Dancing like a fool who’s set on fire
Let me spin until I win at life as I desire
Like this fool set on fire

We work, we play, we’re never paid per diem
You know each and every other chord
We’re calling out the changes as we see them
Us and we will take over the world

A minor goes to D, G major goes to C
Rhythm, lyrics, melody and chords
The notes they may be changed, but the beat will still remain
We’re dancing ‘til we’re dead upon the floor


I cough I wheeze I cannot breathe I will not be stopped now
Dancing like a fool who’s set on fire
Let me spin until I win at life as I desire
Like this fool set on fire
Flames they grow higher

The walls, the walls, are blue and yellow blue and yellow, the walls, the walls, the walls!

I tie up my shoes I put on my jacket and pick up my tools as I make for the door
Out into the world I’ve got nothing to lose
But when something is better than nothing, nothing at all
I wait for the next shoe to drop, the hammer to fall
I wait for the next shoe to drop, the hammer to fall

I cough I wheeze I cannot breathe I will not be stopped now
Dancing like a fool who’s set on fire
Let me spin until I win at life as I desire
Like this fool set on fire
Flames they grow higher
