Welcome to the Cosmic Cabaret Lyrics

Magnum
When things never happen like you wanted
Dark nights always keep you in the shade
Some words would be better left unspoken
No joke, there's a price that must be paid

Oh will you never realize
Rich or poor, you can still be left behind
And if you wanna stay alive
Keep your head, don't you ever be unkind

Gold rings and your faith in the Madonna
These things, you believe them to be true
Maybe if the world should end tomorrow
Just cry with a teardrop-look tattoo

Oh, it gets harder to decide
Who are you, saying maybe it's our fate?
And when you said you've never lied
Fingers crossed, there's no time to celebrate

I gave no thought to wisdom
It all but vanished in the haze
This fragile hand of fortune
Had changed and turned it all to grey

In secret rooms where we conspired
The very streets we walked along
The desert heat became a fire
And no idea where we belonged

Now every day I fall apart
The sky is full of emptiness
I'll take the blame, the burning heart
It brings me down, I must confess

Hard game and the music's going nowhere
This room's getting smaller by the day
Some dog on the street, he just keeps howling
Welcome to the cosmic cabaret

And when you've got nowhere to go
Speechless, blind, you won't find your way back home
And when you're sinking down below
Stand your ground like you always have been shown

I gave no thought to wisdom
It all but vanished in the haze
This fragile hand of fortune
Had changed and turned it all to grey

In secret rooms where we conspired
The very streets we walked along
The desert heat became a fire
And no idea where we belonged

Now every day I fall apart
The sky is full of emptiness
I'll take the blame, the burning heart
It brings me down, I must confess

I gave no thought to wisdom
It all but vanished in the haze
This fragile hand of fortune
Had changed and turned it all to grey

In secret rooms where we conspired
The very streets we walked along
The desert heat became a fire
And no idea where we belonged

Now every day I fall apart
The sky is full of emptiness
I'll take the blame, the burning heart
It brings me down, I must confess

Now every day I fall apart
The sky is full of emptiness
I'll take the blame, the burning heart
It brings me down, I must confess
