Was it fun for you to run away
Like you did so many times before
Paint a note and pack your bags
And head right for the shadows
Disappear like Billy the kid
Never to return
But you could always see what you just did

Is this just the way that the world turns, turns, turns
The diceroll is rolled where they can't be seen by me

Where did you go when they changed the locks
Did you go to live under the bridge
To be the troll that collects the toll
But he has no one to spend it with
Those little goats could have been your friend
But you've driven them all away
I'm surprised you haven't left yourself too

Is this just the way that the world turns, turns, turns
The diceroll is rolled where they can't be seen
Is this just the way that the body burns, burns, burns
The clock keeps on ticking but it can't be beat by me

I can't remember the past, oh, well
I wish I could remember the future too
Guess there is no use in waiting for the big crush
'Cause I would never unmarry you
And though all the kids might return to their ones
To think of what they might have undone
Then I'll return to the vanishing point

Is this just the way that the world turns, turns, turns
The diceroll is rolled where they can't be seen
Is this just the way that the body burns, burns, burns
The clock keeps on ticking but it can't be beat by
