My eyelids are heavy as I pace back and forth
Can't stop this racing through my head
The gates are clearly open here and I can't hold myself back

And when the time has come
We'll do what need be done
We won't bide our time

I've seen this road ahead a thousand times
To know that it goes on for miles and miles
And I know it's ok to be treading water
'Cos when I'm here I'll always feel the same

And I won't lie low now for this show, no
And just let it slip away
No I won't bide my time
For the rest of my lonely days

Gotta break away from these clutches
Of another day inside of your perfect world
Not a friendly face done nothing wrong
Blind to the real crimes we fight on
