The baby sleeps while the children play
And Mama don't know what Daddy don't say
Yeah it's a cold world, baby
So keep you're coat on
And remember the things that we used to have
When the world was much simpler than a dime in a bag
Yeah it's a cheap trick, baby
So keep you're guard up

Now darling I know that life doesn't seem fair
There's sadness and hunger that we all must bear
Some worse than others and some better yet
But you can't just look around
With resentment and regret

You can search every water, every land known to man
In compassion we falter but we're only human
That's just a cruel lie, baby
But the truth will find you

From one spark, one light, one ignition we came
From one point and to one point we go again
Ashes to ashes as dust turns to dust

And we all go falling down
Yes, we all go falling down
And we all go falling down
Just to rise once again

Now over and over we fold and unfold
And time must seem linear so that we may grow
From death there comes life but from life there comes death

And we all go falling down
Yes, we all go falling down
And we all go falling down
Just to rise once again
