On your palm an endless wonder
The lines that speak the truth without a sound
And in your eyes awaits the tireless hunger
Already looks for prey to run down

So why do we keep up this charade
N' how do we tell apart the time to leave from the time to wait

What does tomorrow want from me
What does it matter what I see
If it can't be my design
Tell me where do we draw the line

Tell me where do we draw the line

The dance of flames and shadows in the street
Make poetry nobody's ever heard
The weight of loneliness stands on your feet
The cage already there around the bird

So why don't we join the masquerade
Before it all falls apart before our love becomes insatiate

What does tomorrow want from me
What does it matter what I see
If I can't choose my own design
Tell me where do we draw the line

What does tomorrow want from me
What does it matter what I see
If we all walk behind the blind
Tell me where do we draw the line

Tell me where do we draw the line

Where's the coolin' wind
Where's the evergreen field
Where's my mother's open arms
Where's my father lionheart
S'like the sun's gone down
Sleeps in the hallow ground now
With the autumn's browns leaves
With the one who never grieves

So why do we keep up this charade
N' how do we tell apart the time to leave from the time to wait

What does tomorrow want from me
What does it matter what I see
If it can't be my design
Tell me where do we draw the line

Whatever tomorrow wants from me
At least I'm here, at least I'm free
Free to choose to see the sign
This is my line

    Lines that speak the truth without a sound
    In your eyes awaits the tireless hunger
    Already looks for prey to run down

    So why do we keep up this charade
    How do we tell apart the time to leave from the time to wait

    What does tomorrow want with me
    What does it matter what I see
    If it can't be my design
    Tell me where do we draw the line

    The dance of flames and shadows in the street
    Make poetry nobody's ever heard
    The weight of loneliness stands on your feet
    The cage already there around the bird

    So why don't we join the masquerade
    Before it all falls apart before our love becomes insatiate
