Studio version

Rolling the ball (rolling)
Rolling the ball (rolling)
Rolling the ball (rolling) to me
Rolling the ball (rolling)
Rolling the ball (rolling)
Rolling the ball (rolling) to me

They arrived at an inconvenient time
I was hiding in a room in my mind
They made me look at myself, I saw it well
I'd shut the people out of my life

So now I take the opportunities
Wonderful teachers ready to teach me
I must work on my mind, for now I realise
Everyone of us has a heaven inside

Them heavy people hit me in a soft spot
Them heavy people help me
Them heavy people hit me in a soft spot
Rolling the ball (rolling)
Rolling the ball (rolling)
Rolling the ball (rolling) to me
Rolling the ball (rolling)
Rolling the ball (rolling)
Rolling the ball (rolling) to me

They open doorways that I thought were shut for good
They read me Gurdjieff and Jesu
They build up my body, break me emotionally
It's nearly killing me, but what a lovely feeling

I love the whirling of the dervishes
I love the beauty of rare innocence
Don't need no crystal ball
Don't fall for a magic wand
We humans got it all, we perform miracles

Them heavy people hit me in a soft spot
Them heavy people help me
Them heavy people hit me in a soft spot
Rolling the, rolling the, rolling the, rolling the

Them heavy people hit me in a soft spot
Them heavy people help me
Them heavy people hit me in a soft spot
Rolling the, rolling the, rolling the, rolling the

Them heavy people hit me in a soft spot
Them heavy people help me
Them heavy people hit me in a soft spot
Rolling the, rolling the, rolling the, rolling the

Them heavy people hit me in a soft spot
Them heavy people help me...
