"Rise And Fall" as written by Graham/barson Mcpherson and Lee/foreman Thompson....
Once a singer sang 'bout bullshit
Everyone could see him fall
And be sure it's been his last hit
He's never been seen at all

Some dictator felt progressive
And lay down in the sun
But his people were aggressive
They killed him with a gun

Sometimes you're wrong
By some things you have done
You see fate is too strong
Nothing's won

No use for a fight
If you're not acting right
You'll be cut down to size
Like a lie

[Chorus]
It's the rise and fall
The prize for all
That ain't nice at all
Luck is like a ball
You can't recall or care at all
So better use your brain

A little dragon could spit fire
But never so for something bad
He didn't know the knight's desire
To throw a lance into his head

Romeo loved his Juliet
Their parents told them "Stop"
Then it all turned out peculiar
He couldn't get it up

And it's all in vain
When you're living with pain
Reap not goods you have grown
By your own

Feelings you like
Disappear overnight
You sip up every grin
Free to win

[Chorus]
It's the rise and fall
The prize for all
That ain't nice at all
Luck is like a ball
You can't recall or care at all
You nearly go insane

A spaceman flies the rocket
That takes him to the stars
Thinks his wife is in his pocket
But she's strolling 'round in bars

The king of Los Angeles
Bought himself a teddy bear
And the queen became shameless
She did it with a chair

Sometimes you're wrong
By some things you have done
You see fate is too strong
Nothing's won

No use for a fight
If you're not acting right
You'll be cut down to size
Like a lie

[Chorus]
It's the rise and fall
The prize for all
That ain't nice at all
Luck is like a ball
You can't recall or care at all
So better use your brain

    General CommentMost likely completely irrelevant. Does not mean anything, it simply is stupid. But in a good way stupid. Perhaps pointing out that even the shiniest of diamonds has its smudges.

    General CommentDude....are we reading the same song?
    This song is clearly about how everything that goes up must come down.
    The singer went from hit to nobody, the president lost it all with a bullet. The spaceman managed to reach space (a great achievement) but lost his wife.

    General CommentTurkey Fried is right, it's about a rise and then a fall =)

    It's a great song with a nice happy melody. The way the rhymes are done in the verses are brilliant XD
