Text písně Shell Games

Took the fireworks and the vanity 
The circuit board and the city streets 
Shooting star, swaying palm tree 
Laid it at the arbiter's feet 


If I could change my mind, change the paradigm 
Prepare myself for another life 
Forgive myself for the many times 
I was cruel to something helpless and weak 


But hear it come, that heavy love 
I'm never going to move it alone 
Hear it come, that heavy love 
Tag it on a tenement wall 
Here it come, that heavy love 
Someone got to share in the load 
Hear it come, that heavy love 
I'm never going to move it alone 


I was dressed in white, touched by something pure 
Death obsessed like a teenager 
Sold my tortured youth, piss and vinegar 
I'm still angry with no reason to be 


At the architect who imagined this 
For the everyman, blessed Sisyphus 
Slipping steadily into madness 
Now that's the only place to be free 


But hear it come, that heavy love 
You're never going to move it alone 


Hear it come, that heavy love 
Tattooed on a criminal's arm 
Hear it come, that heavy love 
Someone got to share in the load 
Hear it come, that heavy love 
You're never going to move it alone 


No, I don't want to play 
It's a shell game, it's a shell game 


Distorted sounds on oscilloscopes 
Distorted facts, I could never cope 
My private life is an inside joke 
No one will explain it to me 


We'll be everything that we ever needed 
Everyone, on the count of three! 
Everyone, on the count of three! 
All together now! 


Hear it come, that heavy love 
We're never going to move it alone 
Hear it come, that heavy love 
Playing as the cylinder rose 
Hear it come, that heavy love 
I only want to share in the load 
Hear it come, that heavy love 
I'm never going to move it alone
