The lights go down outside before our cars collide
The city silhouettes itself for these shades of fire
Do you know where these lines are leading?
I will meet you there

I'm covering up my eyes
Before they cover up your eyes or wrap your body all in white
And we await in the light of all the lives this can't be happening
Sorry it's not for me

We wake up
Covered in the marks from all these razors racing up our veins
We'll live and learn to love again
Open up your eyes and we'll be safe again from the razor's edge

And the hospital morgue sleeps
From the surgery
And the needles in the drawer
For emergency
But upstairs they sleep in the maternity
And the fever and the pitch

It's a brand new day
Just to be awake
This is how it feels
To live and learn to love again
Open up your eyes and we'll be safe, away from the razor's edge

The IV drips, the days drag on
The anastethic's now wearing off
Adjust the light switch in the hall, someone has left it on
And maybe the x-ray screen keeps it from getting dark
The bulb burns out when it gets too hot

Keep crashing this car over, over
Keep crashing this car over, and over
Keep crashing this car over, over
I can't keep crashing this car, still it spins out of control

So hold me close or I might disappear this time
Out of control
Like currents in the water we can't let go of the shore
We lost control
