lyrics

THE FOOL

The girl in the mirror said 'darling put your toys away'.
She's a natural born grinner and the cards keep showing the way.
Don't you want to know what's on the other side?
And when you turn this corner you can say goodbye to your pride.

Chorus
I'm tied, to a strapless time.
Where there's no trampoline.
The days are falling behind.
I'm bound, with nowhere else to go.
With not a wall to lean.
Escaping's all that I know.
And when you're The Fool's daughter, things are not quite what they seem.

Please take my hand, I'll fly you to another way.
New dictionaries, visionaries, space exploration on sale.
Now Jim's about to turn into The Lizard King.
The choices are unstable, but you'll never regret once you're in.

Chorus
I'm tied, to a strapless time.
Where there's no trampoline.
The days are falling behind.
I'm bound, with nowhere else to go.
With not a wall to lean.
Escaping's all that I know.
And when you're The Fool's daughter, things are not quite what they seem.

With this lolly take this folly over to The Fool to be read.
Sense is unvocabulable, there is no room in his head.
Don't you want to open up, and see what's inside?
The voices speak of fables that you'll never forget if you tried.

Chorus
I'm tied, to a strapless time.
Where there's no trampoline.
The days are falling behind.
I'm bound, with nowhere else to go.
With not a wall to lean.
Escaping's all that I know.
And when you're The Fool's daughter, things are not quite what they seem.
And when you're The Fool's daughter, things are not quite what they seem.
Yeh, In the smokers corner, nothing is quite what I dream.
