[Instrumental Intro] One, two, three, four Ooh, ooh! [Verse 1] While the sun hangs in the sky And the desert has sand While the waves crash in the sea And meet the land While there's a wind and the stars And the rainbow Till the mountains crumble into the plain [Chorus] Oh yes, we'll keep on trying Tread that fine line Oh, we'll keep on trying, yeah Just passing our time Ooh, ooh! [Verse 2] While we live according to race Color or creed While we rule by blind madness And pure greed Our lives dictated by tradition Superstition, false religion Through the eons, and on and on [Chorus] Oh yes, we'll keep on trying We'll tread that fine line Oh, we'll keep on trying 'Till the end of time 'Till the end of time! [Bridge] Through the sorrow All through our splendor Don't take offense at my innuendo [Spanish Interlude] [Bridge] You can be anything you want to be Just turn yourself into anything You think that you could ever be Be free with your tempo, be free, be free Surrender your ego, be free Be free to yourself [Instrumental Break] Ooh, ooh, yeah! [Verse 3] If there's a God or any kind Of justice under the sky If there's a point, if there's a reason To live or die If there's an answer to the questions We feel bound to ask Show yourself, destroy our fears Release your mask [Chorus] Oh yes, we'll keep on trying Hey, tread that fine line Yeah, we'll keep on smiling, yeah (Yeah, yeah, yeah) And whatever will be, will be [Outro] (We'll just keep on trying) We'll just keep on trying Till the end of time Till the end of time Till the end of time!
