Is it sleight of hand or is it really magic
Is your life work of art or is it truly tragic?
Can you see the truth, can you get yourself to Heaven
Can you be there all the time? 24 by 7
Laid out before you everyday is a myriad of traps
As you meander through the maze, try very hard
Try very hard, try very very hard not to collapse
Into the mire of tangled, twisted tentacles
That are attempting to take you away

Are you just a lump of flesh or a sacred tongue of fire
The truth is the truth, for the devil is a liar
Can you feel the difference burning in your heart
When they come to take you down
That's exactly where they start
Laid out before you is a myriad of traps
And as you try to find your way
It's a lonely road, it's a winding road
It's a heavy, heavy, heavy load, perhaps
But the world just keeps turning around
And we get closer everyday

If I was a stranger would you give me the time
If I was a drowning man, would you throw me a line
Would you fight for your life if those were the stakes
If we are going to save ourselves
That might be what it takes

Silver and gold might be very nice
But there are much more precious things to set in your sites
Everything is changing, it's the time of you life
The mystery is in the wind and it's blowing tonight

LaiLaiLai LaiLaiLai LaiLaiLai Lai
LaiLaiLaiLaiLaiLaiLaiLaiLaiLaiLaiLai
LaiLaiLaiLaiLaiLaiLaiLaiLaiLai
LaiLaiLaiLaiLaiLaiLaiLaiLaiLaiLai

And I know I should confess to you my heart's desire
Oh, but deep down inside I know that you already know
So I'm down on my knees, I fall down and pray
And ask for understanding, how something can be so close
And yet, so far away...for this I pray

Is it sleight of hand or is it really magic?
Can you do a loop-de-do? Can you trip the light fantastic?
Can you see the colors with your naked eye?
Do you dare to live your dreams?
Won't you even try?
Laid out before you everyday is a myriad of traps
Are you a king? Are you a slave?
For you must be very brave to withstand the crashing waves
That confront us on this trip we make
From the cradle to the grave
And everyone has the key in their hand
But when you get to the door, will you understand?

If I was a stranger would you give me the time
If I was a drowning man, would you throw me a line
Would you fight for your life if those were the stakes
If we are going to save ourselves
That might be what it takes

Silver and gold might be very nice
But there are much more precious things to set in your sites
Everything is changing, it's the time of you life
The mystery is in the wind and it's blowing tonight

LaiLaiLai LaiLaiLai LaiLaiLai Lai
LaiLaiLaiLaiLaiLaiLaiLaiLaiLaiLaiLai
LaiLaiLaiLaiLaiLaiLaiLaiLaiLai
LaiLaiLaiLaiLaiLaiLaiLaiLaiLaiLai

The mystery is in the wind and it's blowing tonight
