Laughing in a crown of jewels
Numbness from a scepters wound
Toss and turn, I spin and learn
Catch yourself before you burn

Joker's dance before the king
Jangling beads and silver rings
Close your eyes and bare the sound
Jumpin' up, fallin' down

Fallin', fallin', fallin', fallin' down
Look yourself in the eye before you drown

Royal rebels discover you
The trust you turn, there is no truth
And circle, circle, why are you scared?
Why a smile instead of tears

I'm gulping smoke I fade away
Figures floatin' down to lay
I meet the joker and the thief
King and Queen but, no relief

Fallin', fallin', fallin', fallin' down
(The king is in the counting house)
(Counting all his money)
Look yourself in the eye before you drown
(The queen is in her parlor)
(Eating bread and honey)

Fallin', fallin', fallin', fallin' down
(The king is in the counting house)
(Counting all his money)
Look yourself in the eye before you drown
(The queen is in her parlor)
(Eating bread and honey)

I cross myself before I die
And the leapin' man, he asks me, why?
Well your rhythm is off, I reply
Now you must dance the dance, that you imply

Your actions will follow you full circle round
Your actions will follow you full circle round
Your actions will follow you full circle round
(Your actions will follow you full circle round)
Your actions will follow you full circle round
(Your actions will follow you full circle round)
Your actions will follow you full circle round
(Your actions will follow you full circle round)
Your actions will follow you full circle round
(Round, round, round, round)
Your actions will follow you full circle round
(Round, round, round, round)
The higher the leap, I said
The harder the ground
