Now that I'm at the end of my line I stand at the edge of myself and look down
Guess I know that the best is behind me and the future is hard and real
The moon is rough and the days are tough and the nights are my skin
Here I am standing up for the long one, the lifetime thinning

Now I see why people throw themselves away
And now I see why people live alone

All the ones I know who's error been cut short and that's all paid off
Some might say that you're gone, but you'll always be here with me
To we are left short and we fall through the cracks and look back
So hard to take it when you find that no one really cares

Now I see why people throw themselves away
And now I see why people live alone
Now I see why some people see blue skies, when others just see grey

Looking up from the bottom I see the stars in the skies
I am therefore I go I go I go I go I go

[lead break]

The cheering crowd has seen the winners, packed up and gone home
An hour is a string pulled through the truth will never be told
The first to start and the last to quit whose longest and unknown
Here I am standing up for the last time I have nothin' but my will

Now I see why people throw themselves away
And now I see why people live alone
Now I see why some people see blue skies, when others just see grey

    General CommentThis is what I hear (lyrics corrections)

    Now that I'm at the end of my line I stand at the edge of myself and look down
    Guess I know that the best is behind me and the future is hard and real
    The moon is rough and the days are tough and the nights burn my skin
    Here I am standing up for the long one, the last time digging in

    [...]

    All the ones I know who's fell off, dreams cut short and debts all paid off
    Some might say that you're gone, but you'll always be here with me
    So easy to let yourself fall through the cracks and not look back
    So hard to take it when you find that no one really cares

    [...]

    The cheering crowd has seen the winners, packed up and gone home
    An hour is a string pulled through the truth will never be told
    The first to start and the last to quit, the looser runs longest but unknown
    Here I am standing up for the last time I have nothin' but my will

    [...]
