the skeleton & the roundabout lyrics – electric light orchestra

away, the jokers’s closing in,
reform and they will win,
the light is fading fast.
i know, you know, they know, we all know,
everybody’s gonna burn down.

the girls come crawling on all fours,
banging on locked doors,
high cards call the tune.
i know, you know, they know, we all know,
everybody’s gonna burn down.

play me another hand,
loose everything i am,
until we meet again.

the ace, that’s hiding up your sleeve,
will cause the world to grieve,
the love you had is gone,
i know you know, they know, we all know.

the dream, in every player’s heart,
to win it all not part,
they lie awake at night,
i know, you know, they know, we all know.

the game, where gamblers rule the night,
and get your blood they might,
the joker’s closin’ in,
i know, you know, they know, we all know.
