lyrics

Lyrics:

This is a beginning and a middle and an end
Nothing here is real it’s make believe and let’s pretend
Life is like a game in which nobody knows the rules
Why we’re here and where we’re heading on this ship of fools

Life is an illusion but the ghost of it is real
It isn’t so much what you think as how it makes you feel
You can place a piece of art in public on display
You can turn it off but you can’t make it go away

Changes made along the way and everywhere between
Clues are everywhere but no one knows just what they mean
See beyond the here and now but not into the soul
Life is in the baby steps you take to reach your goal

You can mix a metaphor and not say what you did it for
You can lose a round and then go on to take the game
Make a choice and take a chance or just sit back and wait
You are who you are and you’re the master of your fate

Changes made along the way and everywhere between
Clues are everywhere but no one knows just what they mean
See beyond the here and now but not into the soul
Life is in the baby steps you take to reach your goal
--
