  • 3 The Fool

  • Alive in an ocean
    A world that I didn't see
    I walk the world backways
    It's aways the same ballgame


    That's out of mind
    Out of the living world
    Out of time
    I break all the rules
    They call me a fool


    I cartoon in motion
    A hero pretends no pain
    A clown slipping backwards
    You laugh at another's shame


    But I don't mind
    I know I'm limping low down
    I don't mind
    Winners or losers
    It's all just a game
    And I'm going down
    And I'm strolling down


    Life and an answer
    The key to an open door
    Admiting I'm laughing
    Living I'm limping more


    It's out of mind
    Out of the living world
    Out of time
    Winners or losers
    It's always a game
    And I'm going down
    But I'm strolling down
    To rout around
    And around, and around
    To round round
    There's a cloud
    There's a cloud


    So...the fool has found the golden key
    So...it's waiting there for you and me


    Just a fool, a street jester
    The hero of society
    Just a fool, a street jester
    Look at me, now can't you see


    A life in emotion
    A world I'm glad I didn't see
    A cartoon in motion
    A key to the same day


    I don't mind, I'm here to know
    I wanna go go go go go


    So...the fool has found the golden key
    It's so...it's waiting there for you and me
    Just a fool, a street jester
    The hero of society
    Just a fool, a street jester
    Look at me, now can't you see
