Alive on an ocean
A world that I didn't see
I walk the world backways
It's aways just a shameful game

That's out of mind
Out of the living world
Out of time
I break all the rules
They call me a fool
Right

A cartoon in motion
A hero pretends no pain
A clown skipping backwards
You laugh at another's shame

But I don't mind
Out of a living low down
I don't mind
Winners or losers
It's all just a game
And I'm going down
And I'm slowing down

Life in an instant
The key to an open door
I'm living, I'm laughing
In living I'm living more

It's out of mind
Out of the living world
Out of time
Winners or losers
It's always a game
And I'm going down
But I'm slowing down
Turn around, turn around
And around and around
Turn around, turn around
There's a cloud, there's a cloud
Slow, slow
The fool has found the golden key
It's so slow
It's waiting there for you and me
Just a fool, a street jester
The hero of society
Just a fool, a street jester
Look at me, now can't you see

A life in a motion
A world I'm glad I didn't save
A cartoon in motion
A key to the same day

I don't mind, I'm here to know
I wanna go go go go go

Slow, slow
The fool has found the golden key
It's so slow
It's waiting there for you and me
Just a fool, a street jester
The hero of society
Just a fool, a street jester
Look at me, now can't you see
