The children wait for the slow-moving carousel;
as their parents watch, idly on the side.
The children climb on, to the sound of the bell.

The carousel slowly edges forward with no special story to tell.
As the parents watch, too tired to have pride;
the children wait for the slow-moving carousel.

The ride ends and the children hop off to the ring of the bell;
the parents completely lacking any joy inside.
More children climb on, to the sound of the bell.

It’s always a cycle whether you go to heaven or hell.
What is the purpose when there is nothing to confide?
The children wait for the slow-moving carousel.

Money, fame, and respect are all very well.
But what is its purpose at the end of the ride?
More children climb on, to the sound of the bell.

The cycle of life is hard to dispel;
and it can be hard to fight society's tide.
As the children wait for the slow-moving carousel;
and climb on, to the sound of the bell.
