Now if you're gonna play your games with me
Like the leaf in the top of a tree
You better watch your step when you're comin' back down
From the city on out to the sea
And if your brothers come after me
With their horses so wild and so free
I'll be waitin' at the gate in a terrible state
With the man who holds the key
And he'll treat you quite carelessly
For he knows my face from a previous place
From a country in a foreign land
Throwin' dice in a game of chance on the sand
But I lost my cool and fate loves a fool
Now I'm standin' on the edge of the pack
In my spacesuit hopin' that this women will call me at last
'Cause I'm an astronaut on the shores of this grand illusion
And I'm fallin down at the sound of this beating heart
Yeah, this beatin' heart
Yeah, this beatin' heart

Your friends all tell ya that ya gotta make a change
Gotta make this fake in so many kinda ways
Snap to the trees from the trees to the earth
From the earth to your grave from the grave to your birth
Your heart's been rappin' with ?
But the world ain't yours 'cause this heart's been sold
Gonna pay your lovers way and the ship it sails today

Whoa my mind now we're rollin' by and by
Got my children to light the way
Whoa my mind now we're rollin' by and by
Got my brothers to light the way
Whoa my mind now we're rollin' by and by
Got my sisters to light the way
Gotta pave your lovers way
And the ship it sails today

So if you're gonna play your games with me
Better use some real chicery
Better get smart 'cause that lock on your heart
It ain't as heavy as it used to be
In the land without no gravity
In this windless place on the edge of space
Where the saints and the sinners have passed
With the dead satellites and the trash
In my spacesuit hopin' that this woman would call me at last
'Cause I'm an astronaut on the shores of this grand illusion
And I'm fallin' down at the sound of this beating heart
Yeah, this beatin' heart
Yeah, this beatin' heart
