  • There's no sense, the fire burns
    When wisdom fails, it changes all
    The wheel embodies all that keeps on turning

    Blood red skies, I feel so cold
    No innocence, we play our roll
    The wheel embodies all
    Where are we going?

    All in all
    You expect the wise to be wiser
    Fallen from grace and
    All and all I guess we should have known better
    'Cause

    What about us
    Isn't it enough
    No we're not in paradise
    This is who we are
    This is what we've got
    No it's not our paradise
    But it's all we want
    And it's all that we're fighting for
    Though it's not paradise

    You and us, or I and them
    There comes a time to take a stand
    The wheel is watching all it keeps on burning

    The venom works, it's like a curse
    A trojan horse, when will we learn?
    The wheel embodies all that keeps returning

    All in all
    You expect the wise to be wiser
    Fallen from grace and
    All and all I guess we should have known better
    'Cause

    What about us
    Isn't it enough
    No we're not in paradise
    This is who we are
    This is what we've got
    No it's not our paradise
    But it's all we want
    And it's all that we're fighting for
    Though it's not paradise

    What about us
    Isn't it enough
    No we're not in paradise
    This is who we are
    This is what we've got
    No it's not our paradise
    But it's all we want
    And it's all that we're fighting for

    What about us
    Isn't it enough
    No we're not in paradise
    This is who we are
    This is what we've got
    No it's not our paradise
    But it's all we want
    And it's all that we're fighting for
    But it's not paradise

    What about us
    What about us
    What about us
    Isn't it enough

    What about us
    What about us
    What about us
    Isn't it enough

    What about us
    What about us
    What about us
    Isn't it enough

    What about us
    What about us
    What about us
    Isn't it enough Writer/s: MARTIJN SPIERENBURG, ROBERT WESTERHOLT, SHARON DEN ADEL
