I've been working longer hours
Watching money streaming in
I've been trusting crooks and liars
Like I don't have any friends
I've been finding myself praying
When I'm deepest in the sin
I've been reinventing happiness again

It's been painful resolution
Set to jubilant applause
It's soaring highs and crushing lows
And grinding in the jaw
It's been begging for forgiveness
After laying down the law
It's been like surgery to get through all the flaws

Will this overture seem dull to all my friends?
Will you love me if I leave you here again?
When the spell breaks we'll be back to work, what then?

There's a faith that could tear this whole thing apart
So pour the drinks and we'll cause the dancing to start
There are lies that could tear this whole thing apart
And there are songs that will beg to keep your heart

I've been standing at a crossroads
For what seems like many days
If I go will the house fall down?
Will I burn it if I stay?
Will I be fighting like a coward
Or running like a brave?
Will I be laughing like a madman either way?
