Alan Parsons Project – The Turn Of A Friendly Card (Part 1) lyrics

There are unsmiling faces and bright plastic chainsAnd a wheel in perpetual motionAnd they follow the races and pay out the gainsWith no show of an outward emotion
And they think it will make their lives easierFor God knows up till now it's been hardBut the game never ends when your whole world dependsOn the turn of a friendly cardNo the game never ends when your whole world dependsOn the turn of a friendly card
There's a sign in the desert that lies to the westWhere you can't tell the night from the sunriseAnd not all's the king's horse and all the king's menHave prevented the fall of the unwise
For they think it will make their lives easierAnd God knows up till now it's been hardBut the game never ends when your whole world dependsOn the turn of a friendly cardNo the game never ends when your whole world dependsOn the turn of a friendly card
But a pilgrim must follow in search of a shrineAs he enters inside the cathedral...
