  • You can fool yourself
    You can cheat until you're blind
    You can cut your heart
    It can happen

    You can mend the wires
    You can feed the soul apart
    You reach
    It can happen to you
    It can happen to me
    It can happen to everyone eventually

    It's a constant fight
    A constant fight
    You're pushing the needle to the red
    Black and white
    Who knows who's right
    No substitute you're born you're dead
    Fly by night
    Created out of fantasy
    Our destinations call

    Look up, Look down
    Look out, Look around
    Look up, Look down
    There's a crazy world outside
    We're not about to lose our pride

    It can happen to you
    It can happen to me
    It can happen to everyone eventually

    As you happen to say
    It can happen today
    As it happens
    It happens in every way

    This world I like
    We architects of life
    A song a sigh
    Developing words that linger
    Through fields of green through open eyes
    This for us to see

    Look up, Look down
    Look out, Look around
    So look up, Look down
    There's a crazy world outside
    We're not about to lose our pride

    It can happen to you
    It can happen to me
    It can happen to everyone eventually

    As you happen to say
    It can happen today
    As it happens
    It happens in every way

    As you happen to see
    It will happen to be
    Nothing happens to nowhere and nowhere

    Solo

    Look up, Look down
    There's a crazy world outside
    We're not about to lose our pride

    It can happen to you
    It can happen to me
    It can happen to everyone eventually

    As you happen to see
    It will happen to be
    Nothing happens to nowhere and nowhere

    You can fool yourself
    You can cheat until you're blind
    You can cut your heart

    You can fool yourself It can happen to you
    You can cheat until you're blind It can happen to me

    You can cut your heart It can happen to eveyone eventually
    As you happen to say
    It can happen today
    As it happens
    It happens in every way

    You can mend the wires
    You can feed the soul apart
    You can touch your life
    You can bring your soul alive
    It can happen to you
    It can happen to me
    It can happen to everyone eventually

    As you happen to say
    It can happen today
    As it happens
    It happens in every way Writer/s: CHRIS SQUIRE, JON ANDERSON, TREVOR RABIN
