D5    D7sus    Em7    Am(4) - G/D - D5
[intro]

D5            D7sus            Em7             Am4 - G/D - D5
Laughing in a crown of jewels, numbness from a scepter's wound
D5               D7sus           Em7             Am4-G/D - D5
Toss and turn, I spin and learn, catch yourself before you burn
D5                  D7sus     Em7                Am4-G/D-D5
Jokers dance before the king, jangling beads, a silver ring
D5                    D7sus         Em7          Am4-G/D-D5
Close your eyes and bare the sound, jumping up, falling down

A                  C(9)             D        Am(4) - G/D - D5
Falling, falling, falling, falling down
A                     C(9)            D        Am(4) - G/D - D5
Look yourself in the eye before you drown

Royal rebels discover you; trust? you turn, there is no truth
And circle, circle, why are you scared, why a smile instead of tears?
I'm gulping smoke, I fade away, figures floating down to lay
Meet the joker and the thief, the king and queen, but no relief

Falling, falling, falling, falling down
Look yourself in the eye before you drown
Falling, falling, falling, Falling down
(The king is in his counting house, counting out his money)
Look yourself in the eye before you drown
(The queen is in her parlor eating bread and honey)

[Guitar solo: same chords as verse]

I cross myself before I die, and the leaping man, he asked me why
Well your rhythm is off, I reply, Now you must dance the dance that you imply

     D5                       D7sus                  Em7                  D5
Your actions will follow you full circle round, your actions will follow...
     D5                       D7sus                  Em7                  D5
Your actions will follow you full circle round, your actions will follow...
     D5                       D7sus                  Em7                  D5
Your actions will follow you full circle round, your actions will follow...
     D5                       D7sus                 Em7
Your actions will follow you full circle round, the higher the leap
                         D5     Am(4)-G/D-D5  Am(4)-G/D-D5  Am(4)-G/D-D5
I said, the harder the ground
