If there’s anything I’ve learned
It’s how to play it cool
If you play with the fire than burns
The fire makes a play for you
And you could be consumed
And you could be consumed

And if you look into the eye
Of a stranger you can’t trust
Beware of superstitious lies
Lurking round that stranger’s luck
He might try to pass the buck
He might try to pass the buck

Lessons from my life
Less or more of the same
Well, I fail sometimes when I try
But there’s always a better way
And I bet I will win today
I say! I bet I will win today

Wow, man! I’m a King of a Castle Made Of Sand --
A stand-in for a Kingdom without end...
