Three Dog Night – The Writings On The Wall lyrics

(D. Troiano)
Lookin' out my window, it was a smoggy afternoon,
I breathen in some air, I couldn't get in too soon.
I turned on the news, learned of some food I shouldn't eat,
Don't you run around today, you might pass out in the heat.
Writing's on the wall, facts are in the books,
Nothin' lost is nothin' gained,
It seems there's writings on the wall.
Yeah
I just can't understand how this world is run,
Well, people say that war is bad, but they keep on makin' guns.
Ever since the world began it's always been the same,
'Cause hist'ry'll always tell the truth
War is such a shame.
So the writing's on the wall you can't outrace your fate,
What will be will always be, so the writing's on the wall.
Facts are in the books, nothin' lost is nothin' gained,
Writing's on the wall.
Writing's on the wall, facts are in the books,
Nothin' lost is nothin' gained, so there's writings on the wall.
Writing's on the wall, facts I learned too late,
What will be will always be, writings on the wall.
You can't outrace your fate, so what will be will always be,
There's writings on the wall, the lesson's learned too late,
Nothin' lost is nothin' gained cause the writing's on the wall.
Facts I learned too late, so what will be will always be,
Writing's on the wall, you can't outrace your fate
So what will be will always be, cause the writing's on the wall.
