There are unsmiling faces
And bright plastic chains
And a wheel in perpetual motion
And they follow the races
And pay out the gains
With no show of an outward emotion

And they think it will make their lives easier
For God knows up 'til now it's been hard
But the game never ends when your whole world depends
On the turn of a friendly card
No, the game never ends when your whole world depends
On the turn of a friendly card

There's a sign in the desert
That lies to the west
Where you can't tell the night from the sunrise
And not all the king's horses
And all the king's men
Have prevented the fall of the unwise

For they think it will make their lives easier
And God knows up 'til now it's been hard
But the game never ends when your whole world depends
On the turn of a friendly card
No, the game never ends when your whole world depends
On the turn of a friendly card

But a pilgrim must follow
In search of a shrine
As he enters inside the cathedral
