Balance is bittersweet when all you know is madness
Count my blessings, poke out my eyes
Privilege magnified and shoved in my face
When I walk through the tunnels where the invalids lay

I'm wading in dark water when I should be in bed
With a head full of magic and a heart full of dread
My labors of toil, my labors of love
Streetlight pale, goddamn the sun

We're all dangerously close to the bottom
Anguish and joy could be slammed shut
In the wink of an eye, in the inky night
I'm a nightcrawler and I don't know why

Balance is bittersweet when all you know is madness
Count my blessings, claw out my eyes
There's no rain to wash the piss stench away
When I walk through the tunnels where the invalids lay

I'm wading in dark water when I should be in bed
With a head full of magic and a heart full of dread
My labors of toil, my labors of lust
Streetlight pale, goddamn the sun

We're all dangerously close to the bottom
Anguish and joy could be slammed shut
In the wink of an eye, in the inky night
I'm a nightcrawler and I don't know why
