There’s no sense; the fire burns
When wisdom fails, it changes all
The wheel embodies all that keeps on turning

Blood red skies, I feel so cold
No innocence, we play our role
The wheel embodies all where are we going

All in all you’d expect the wise to be wiser
Fallen from grace, all and all I guess
We should have known better, ‘cause…

What about us, isn’t it enough?
No, we’re not in paradise
This is who we are; this is what we got
No, it’s not our paradise
But it’s all we want
And it’s all that we’re fighting for
Though it’s not paradise

You and us, or I and them
There comes a time to take a stand
The wheel is watching all; it keeps on burning

The venom works, it’s like a curse
A Trojan horse, when will we learn?
The wheel embodies all; that keeps returning
