[Verse 1]
You say "the older I get, the better I was"
Truth from a distance, but I still don't measure up
I thought I could handle my words to a good degree
They keep falling out of me like oil spills at the sea

[Pre-Chorus]
Fate won't change
It knows me by name and it calls
It says, "Sell your soul to try understand it all"

[Chorus]
But in the light of the magic hour
Everything just seems to just slow right down
The more I know, The less I know
(In the still dancing)
The more I know, The less I know
(In the still dancing)
Don't know where I go, or if I'm coming home
(In the still dancing)

[Verse 2]
I met a Marlboro Man underground
He had nothing to care about
Yeah the dogs get to the top
I'm beaten up by the world, I gotta say
There's a faded glory written on my face

[Pre-Chorus]
Fate won't change
It knows me by name and it calls
It says, "Sell your soul to try understand it all"

[Chorus]
But in the light of the magic hour
Everything seems to just slow right down
The more I know, The less I know
(In the still dancing)
The more I know, The less I know
(In the still dancing)
Come beat me down, I'm off the ground
(But I'm still dancing)

[Bridge]
Oh!
Try to add it up
But it ends up another game
Life ain't fair, is it vanity
Crowded streets all treat you the same
Feet don't fail me now
I click my heels three times
(I'm up off the ground)
I lose and I get lost
But, I'm underneath the cross

[Pre-Chorus]
Now my fate won't change
It knows me by name and it calls
Will I sell my soul to try understand it all?

[Chorus]
In the light of the magic hour
Everything seems to slow right down
The more I know, The less I know
(In the still, dancing)
The more I know, The less I know
(In the still, dancing)
The more I know, The less I know
(In the still, dancing)

[Outro]
In the still dancing
(The more I know, The less I know)
In the still dancing
(I gotta go, The feeling's gone)
But, I'm still dancing
(The more I know, The less I know)
