"Hanging by a Thread" as written by and Les Sampou....
Sometimes it means giving up everything to get what you really want
Sometimes it means giving up what you want to get what you really need
Sometimes you don't know what it means, what you want, what you need
And you're just too tired to even get out of your own way

Everybody's got some secret way to cope
Some religion, superstition, philosophy, or dope
I bit off, chewed up, and swallowed everything I could digest
but I admit, I'm still hanging, Hanging by a thread

Come on, boys, roll in the big picture and hang it up in front of me
So I can just sit there and stare....maybe it'll come to me
Why did this happen to me? Where do I go? What should I be now?
Every voice is screaming except the one I want to hear

Everybody's got some secret way to cope
Some religion, superstition, philosophy, or dope
I've bit off, chewed up, and swallowed everything I could digest
but I admit, I'm still hanging, Hanging by a thread

All the self-help bibles talk the talk: "another lesson you gotta learn"
I've lost track of all the times my hand was bit and burned
It's not that I'm stupid, it's just that the fire keeps changing its face
First it's friend then it's foe.....how am I supposed to keep the faith?

Everybody's got some secret way to cope
Some religion, superstition, philosophy, or dope
and they'll lead you down the path until you've been mislead
and there they'll leave you hanging, Hanging by a thread
