I'm playing the game with earthquakes around me
Shaking my novice heart
The pieces have have fallen, we've all forgotten
Where we're supposed to start

Well, you've got the guns and I've got the money
Maybe we should make a stand
We'll use the confusion, break all the rules
And win it with a losing hand

What I found was painfully enlightening
Like a shot, right between my eyes
Cos it hurts trying to do the right thing
When the monsters are all on your side

So I'm dancing on ashes, drinking and giddy
High as a silver swan
You got the guts and I got the glory
How could anything go wrong

Well one day you left me lost in the rubble
Tapping out an S.O.S.
The higher you drift, the swifter you crumble
Crushed by your own success

Now what I found was painfully enlightening
Like a shot right between my eyes
Cos it hurts just trying to do the right thing
When the monsters are all on your side

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Could you ease this hunger
Why do I even wonder

Still alive the quiet morning after
The night, the night I should have died
And I can't believe I've got my absolution
Only to find I slept through half my life

So I'd like to thank you for your kindness
When you bled and severed all our ties
Now my friends drag me from the ashes
Of the monsters on my side
On my side
