Roy Harper – Playing Prison lyrics

When you say that I have done it before
So it should come easy now
(well) Come the day when we show us to the door
There'll be sorrow
Throwing shadow
Chasing rainbow
And then I think of why I'm leaving again
And why I'll never settle down
Loathe to further so-called civilisation
Growing sorrow
Throwing shadow
Chasing rainbow
Somewhere in the world if I care I have my children
Somewhere in the world outside the ark
Somewhere in the world here and there I always left them
Somewhere in the world like you said I left my mark
Just a trace forever leaving
It sure comes easy now
From a place I disbelieve in
Growing sorrow
Throwing shadow
Chasing rainbow
Playing prison
