The Brandos – How The Dice Fall lyrics

Well I've felt like a King
In command of it all
And I've been a loser
Who can't win at all
When things are up I'm a genius
When they're down I'm a fool
Got to remember
This one rule


It's how the dice fall
It's how the dice fall
Ain't got nothin' to do
With what you or I do
It's how the dice fall

I heard it from a preacher
About destiny
And I heard it from a teacher
About history
How we got to learn
From our mistakes
They just don't see
It's in the hands of fate

So don't even pretend
You got it under control
'Cause no one can say
How the dice are gonna roll
You can play with 'em loaded
But it comes back around
You think you're on your way up
Then you're lyin' face down

If the doors swing open
It's so hard to say why
If the doors slam shut, Lord
Ain't no reason to cry
I just keep on workin'
Hard just the same
One roll of the dice
And it's all gonna change
