​Tables Are Turned

This song is by Amon Düül II and appears on the album Carnival in Babylon (1972) and on the compilation album Lemmingmania (1975).

Above your head
Church bells explode
And you jump over fountains
And you don't see
The birds in the trees
They all have turned to the mountains

There is a snake in your bathroom
And a tiger at your door
And if you open up your mailbox
Locusts fall on the floor, fall on the floor
Fall on the floor, fall on the floor

But in your eyes
I see a sunbeam
Like the rising sun of dawn
On your finger's a ring of crystal
Like the cry of a flying swan
In your right hand nothing more is left than a shadow
In your left hand you hold a letter from the girl on the road

There is a tree in your bathroom
And a friend at your door
And if you open up the mailbox
Stars fall on the floor, fall on the floor
Fall on the floor, fall on the floor
