As the city sleeps I'm on fire
And I'm burning to shades of red
Drag myself to an open field and I'm hanging on
I'm just hanging on

And the king he screams, "Look out darling
This fears coming towards your way.
I'll lay it down in a sorry garden."
I'm hanging on
Oh I'm just hanging on
Oh and I will someday see this in a different
I will someday see this in a different light

And I'm an enemy of certainty
And a lover of the things that remain unseen
Oh don't tell me what the days may bring
I'm just hanging on
Oh, just hanging on
And I will someday see this in a different
I will someday see this in a different light

I've been looking for the man who shot me down
So I can kick the blame right off myself
*Bang bang* hit the ground
It's the daily sound
I'm just hanging on
Oh, I'm just hanging on
I'm just hanging on
Oh, I'm just hanging on

    Lyric CorrectionThird verse should be:

    And I'm an enemy of certainty
    And a lover of the things that remain unseen

    Also...I think the missing lyric is:

    I've been looking for the man who shot me down
    So I can kick the blame right off myself
    And then we can drown, it's just the daily sound

    I have nothing to verify this, but they both sound correct to me.

    General CommentIt's definitely...

    I've been looking for the man who shot me down
    So I can kick the blame right off myself
    *Bang bang* hit the ground, it's the daily sound
