It was Saturday night, the moon was bright
Shining down its harvest light
Music all around to hear
Set the stage and atmosphere

Many dress to suit their taste
Participate in the ego race
Tonight's the night for you to be
Biggest man in history

Saturday night's your curtain call
You found your place after all
I saw a face in the crowd
Sayin' nothin', yet talking loud

Life is just a day, living games we play
London Bridge is fallin' down, do what Simon says
Doing what you feel, games can be unreal
Humpty Dumpty when you fall, there be no one here to call

Life is still your mystery
You see, you see, you see
Many friends, who gather 'round
In hope to feel safe and sound

We emphasize to make it clear
Our stumbling nations atmosphere
While looking through the looking glass
Our vision show, a stormy past

When you gonna wake and see the sun
Stop wasting time and having fun

Life is just a day, daily games we play
London Bridge has fallen down, you did what Simon said
Doing what you feel, games are so unreal
Humpty Dumpty why'd you fall?
You see there's no one here to call

Now, we've solved this mystery
You see, you see, you see

    We set ourselves up in our own mind to be what we thank we are. In our places,styles etc.. We build up this fantasy world about us bigger, and better than everyone else which is a big ego (eaging, god out), not coming to reality that we're no better or bigger than anyone. That's the mystery no one want to see themselve made of the same stuff flesh. We are nother without god help. In this song you have to understand what mourice white the head of (ew&f) studies to get the meaning. Jupiter is a god of the sodiac astrology the god of love.
