The people on the streets are just walking
And they're moving
But they don't know where they're going

The people in the churches are just praying
Just for saying
But they don't know what they're asking

And the puppets spin round and round
Always falling down
Our strings are crossed, we cannot stand
Cause they're holding on with both hands

But I will always fall for you
And I am always choosing you
But I am always loosing you
Cause they're holding us apart
As we're reaching through the dark

But I will always fall for you
And I am always choosing you
But I am always loosing you
Because we're in their hands
Puppets made to dance

The people in the darkness are just crying
Slowly dying
They forgot the concept of living

The people with the power are destroying
What's worth knowing
Think it's best if things keep changing

And the puppets spin round and round
Always falling down
Our strings are crossed, we cannot stand
Cause they're holding on with both hands

But I will always fall for you
And I am always choosing you
But I am always loosing you
Cause they're holding us apart
As we're reaching through the dark

But I will always fall for you
And I am always choosing you
But I am always loosing you
Because we're in their hands
Puppets made to dance

The street to hell is paved with good intentions
And love somehow makes the world go around
So if love and good intentions got us here
Could hate and bad deeds somehow get us out

Where the puppets spin round and round
Always falling down
Our strings are crossed, we cannot stand
Cause they're holding on with both hands

But I will always fall for you
And I am always choosing you
But I am always loosing you
Cause they're holding us apart
As we're reaching through the dark

But I will always fall for you
And I am always choosing you
But I am always loosing you
Because we're in their hands
Puppets made to dance

"Because we're in their hands
Puppets made to dance" is my favorite line, this is amazing!

does it have a tune?

Yes, it does have a tune, and musical accompaniment which I pride myself on because words are definitely my first love... musical notes... not so much.

 

And the line you love is actually what inspired the song.  I thought it up and just had to write something with it.

 

Glad you liked it!
