Round and round and everything keeps tumblin' down
Make a sideways move
Till you're standin' at the edge of town
'Cause everything in this world's got you turned around

Now how many times must we play this 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
With yourself and nobody else

Round and round and everything keeps tumblin' down
Make a sideways move
Till you're standin' at the edge of town
'Cause everything in this world's got you turned around

Now life is strange when you think
About the paradoxes we all live around
Well, teach the young to love their neighbors
But make sure that they grow up

Well, love's just a game
We play to occupy our time
While everybody turns aside
Hides their eyes with what's inside

Round and round and everything keeps tumblin' down
Make a sideways move
Till you're standin' at the edge of town
'Cause everything in this world's got you turned around

Now what's the good of this life you've seen
If no one's hungry for your lines?
Oh, you can write a poem or song
To amuse your mind

But relationships we need
Can only come from those who got no clothes
But they can take it
Without the fear of living naked

Round and round and everything keeps tumblin' down
Make a sideways move
Till you're standin' at the edge of town
'Cause everything in this world's got you turned around

Yeah, everything in this world keeps bringing you down
Everything in this world keeps bringing you down
