Alan Parsons Project – The Turn Of A Friendly Card lyrics

(lead vocal - chris rainbow)

There are unsmiling faces in fetters and chains
On a wheel of perpetual motion
Who belong to all races and answer all names
With no show of outward emotion

And they think it will make their lives easier
But the doorway before them is barred
And the game never ends when your whole world depends
On the turn of a friendly card
No the game never ends when your whole world depends
On the turn of a friendly card

    Its all about gambling and casinos, and those people who try to improve their lot in life with a big win. But seldom do they get that lucky break (i. E. The unwise). There is a hope for that lucky break, referenced by a 'friendly card'.
    The sign in the desert = refers to las vegas.
    Wheel in perpetual motion = roulette wheel.
    The toafc album was compiled and produced by alan and eric in monte carlo, an obvious place for inspiration for gambling.
    Saludos.
