Standing on the edge of the rest of my life
She says, "What are you so afraid of, what are you so afraid of?"
I'll drag my heels across this entire town
Let the blood run free
Let it flood the streets
Tonight this city drowns
It's going to drown

I'm gonna see this path through
I'll walk the straight and narrow
Till my legs are broken
Because there are some things in this world
I need to see with my own two eyes
to believe

Believing is not seeing
No to me, believing is breathing
And knowing that each breath won't be your last
Tomorrow, you wake up
and you decide with every glorious mistake
you can erase your past

I am a ticking time bomb
counting down with the swelling of my lungs
with the bursting of my lungs
I am the roar of a thousand lions strong
and tonight I sing my song
Tonight it carries on, it carries on

This all means nothing
If I never make it back
I'll retrace every footstep
Even if it takes a lifetime
to make it back to you
I just need to see you with my own two eyes
To believe, to believe this is true

I'm an open book
dying to be read
with a broken spine
and I'm showing thread
My cover is worn
and my pages are torn
Page after page I'm somehow trying
trying to persuade
That somehow this ending will be okay
But it's hard to believe everything you read

The cover's worn and the pages torn
Open me up and tear me apart
