Text

Round

Round the world
round the clocks
round the sky
on desert rocks

Round the frogs
round the ponds
round the shape
of scorpion's claws

Round the eye
round the sky
round the fate
of one who lied

Round the belly
round the jaws
round the shape
of bullet holes

Round and round
and round it goes
the wheel of fortune
of bliss and foes

Round in jails
locked in cells
hurt are men
by lies like snails

Round the hat
round the tank
shooting men
from army rank

Round the skulls
nightmare teems
faint all hope
and childhood dreams

Round the tables
round the mouths
round the shape
of mushroom clouds
