Lyrics by Jonas Lundberg

 

Tilting and turning, wakening memory

Young boy he´s learning, life in summary

 

Mounting the noble, faux-jeweled stallion

ready to conquer life´s battalion

 

Rising, falling, hoping and believing

The essence of being alive

or

The essence of being a lie

 

Bound by routine, bound by certainty

A venue evolving all eternity

 

Now who wrote the script? Who set the harmony?

Band organ´s playing the common symphony

 

Rising, falling, hoping and believing

The essence of being alive

or

The essence of being a lie

 

Barker´s promised the riding of your life

The old wooden merry-go-round

says

The essence of being alive

is

the essence of being alive
