about

This was originally on our second album "Roll Up! Roll Up!" but weve reworked it. A song about coming to certain crossroads we come to in our lives and making the right choice when we get there. A kind of moment like the movie Sliding Doors. A split second decision or take the wrong road and you end up in the Playground Of Lost Souls.

lyrics

Playground Of The Lost Souls

The winds of change come blowing through my life
The fortune wheel is spinning round the dice
And i travel through the emerald frost
To where the ice watchman sits around the clock

And it's cold (and it's cold)
So very cold (so very cold)
In the Playground (in the Playground)
Of the lost souls
And i'm told (and i'm told)
You never grow old (you never grow old)
In the Playground (in the Playground)
Of the lost souls

Cherry oyster's scattered on the beach
Of the crystal ocean that's so far out of reach
So i board the ship of fools
Where the thieves of romance pillage every room

And it's cold (and it's cold)
So very cold (so very cold)
In the Playground (in the Playground)
Of the lost souls
And i'm told (and i'm told)
You never grow old (you never grow old)
In the Playground (in the Playground)
Of the lost souls

And it's cold (and it's cold)
So very cold (so very cold)
In the Playground (in the Playground)
Of the lost souls
And i'm told (and i'm told)
You never grow old (you never grow old)
In the Playground (in the Playground)
Of the lost souls

What you gonna do when you're lonely?
What you gonna do when it all falls down?
What you gonna do when you're broken?
What you gonna do when the rains come down?
What you gonna say when you can't choose?
What you gonna say when the world goes by?
What you gonna say when it's too late?
What you gonna say when it's time to die?
