Smoke in the Sky    
     
You ask me where Iíve been hiding;
Well, wouldnít you like to know?
I got tired of being the star
In your dog and pony show

So you can take the low road
And Iíll keep on getting high

From the under the bridge youíre burning,
Itís all just smoke in the sky

You keep the kettle boiling
Oh, you love to stir the pot
Youíre the center of attention
Even when youíre not

But you canít suck me in
Donít know why you even try

From the under the bridge youíre burning,
Itís all just smoke in the sky

SOLO

Well, it reeks of desperation
And I can see you sweat
Itís a losing proposition
But you still take the bet
All the straws you grasp for
Canít seem to get you high

From the under the bridge youíre burning,
Itís all just smoke in the sky

Everything comes Ďround sooner or later
Tilting windmills but the dragons were waiting
They will leave you just ashes and cinders
Choking on the words that no one remembers

From the under the bridge youíre burning,
Itís all just smoke in the sky

SOLO

From the under the bridge youíre burning,
Itís all just smoke in the sky
The world will still keep turning
Itís all just smoke in the sky

Just smoke in the sky
