I shaved off my hair cause I found it amusing
I faked my despair in the beautiful ruins
I wailed at the wall, tossed a coin in the fountain
Now dry as the sand on a dead man's bones

I dive from a cloud, take a roll down a mountain
I rise in a shroud and I sleep when I'm counting
I shed my disguise when there's nobody looking
The whites of your eyes are all mine alone

And I'm written in stone; I'm the dust on your carpet
A guest in your home because that's where the heart is
Try and fly on the wind, though you'll find I'm the fastest
I'm always let in but I dine alone

Rest assured I'll survive though I'll thrive on your danger
I'll arrive as your friend but I'll leave as the stranger
I'm open for bribes, in the end I will wager
You've nothing to buy but some time alone

The rules of the game are all mine for the making
You'll cheat all the same but you're mine for the taking
There's no special favors and no one forsaken
I live for you all, but I'll die alone
