Oh, in these times of trouble, what can you do
But lie awake and wonder what’s in store for you.
In these days of worry, the people that you meet
Are nothing more than faces that pass on the street.

In troubled times, the world unwinds
The circles spin faster, the dice roll with temper.
In troubled times, there’s nowhere to run
And hide from the demons that block out the sun, so

Dance inside the firelight
And feel it when the tide turns ‘round
And take that princess for your own
You’ll feel it when the tide turns ‘round.

Oh, in these times of trouble, what can you save
But your money, well, your money won’t absolve your sins.
In this wicked weather, a storm’s closing in,
The car’s overturning, the windows are breaking.

In troubled times, our fears are fed
By the hands of the monsters beneath our beds.
In troubled times, there’s nowhere to run
And nowhere to hide once the damage is done, so

Dance inside the firelight
And feel it when the tide turns ‘round
And take that princess for your own
You’ll feel it when the tide turns ‘round and round.

Oh, here I am waiting for an answer, ‘come and take this all away.
Waiting here while minutes bleed to hours, bleed to days, bleed to days.
My mind won’t set me free of this madness.
My mind can’t tell what’s wrong or right or wrong or right or wrong or right.

Dance inside the firelight
And feel it when the tide turns ‘round
And take that princess for your own
You’ll feel it when the tide turns ‘round and round.

It’s a lie. It’s a lie. It’s never changing. It only grows.
It’s a lie. It’s a lie. But you’re in control. You’re in control.
