Long ago, I was told there were riches inside of me
Someone old hid the gold and the finding was my affair
In those days when my ears heard a story, my mind believed
So I searched with my greed in the sunshine for all to see there

I'm in over my head in this game
Over my head
And I'm afraid I'm never gonna find my way back to where I've been

Yes you know many tried, none succeeded my mind (my mind), to train
When the fools came to lay down their money I laughed (I laughed), uncool
Saw the mouth of the whale just in time to go down (go down) the drain
Now I float with my boat in the darkness and play the fool

I'm in over my head in this game
Over my head
And I'm afraid I'm never gonna find my way back to where I've been

I'm in over my head in this game
Over my head
And I'm afraid I'm never gonna find my way back to where I've been
...To find my way back to where I've been

I'm in over my head in this game
Over my head
And I'm afraid I'm never gonna find my way back to where I've been

I'm in over my head in this game
Over my head
And I'm afraid I'm never gonna find my way back to where I've been (My way back to where I've been)
...To find my way back to where I've been (To find my way back to where I've been)
...To find my way back to where I've been (To find...)
Ohhh my...
