Away, the jokers closing in
Reform and they will win
The light is fading fast
I know, you know, they know, we all know
Everybody's gonna burn down

The girls come crawling on all fours
Banging on locked doors
High cards call the tune
I know, you know, they know, we all know
Everybody's gonna burn down

Play me another hand
Loose everything I am
Until we meet again

The ace, that's hiding up your sleeve
Will cause the world to grieve
The love you had is gone
I know you know, they know, we all know

The dream, in every player's heart
To win it all not part
They lie awake at night
I know, you know, they know, we all know

The game, where gamblers rule the night
And get your blood they might
The joker's closing' in
I know, you know, they know, we all know
