"Tightrope" as written by and Tobin Esperance Dave Buckner....
My words are weapons
In which I murder you with
But please don't get scared please do not turn your head
We are the future the 21st century dyslexic glue sniffing cybersluts
With homicidal minds and handguns
We are insane
Nothing will change
We are insane same
Nothing will change

Chorus:
There is a thin line between what's good and what is evil
And I will tiptoe down that line
But I will feel unstable
My life is a circus
And I am tripping down the tightrope
Well there is nothing to save me now

So I will not look down

And again and again and again
And it happens again and again and again

There's no beginning there is no end there is only change
Progression backwards
Is this where we are heading
Take back your soul
Forget your emptiness

Chorus
I'm falling to the ground

Falling to the ground
Down to the ground

I speak of madness
My heart and soul
I cry for people who ain't got control
Lets take our sanity
Lets take compassion
And be responsible for every reaction
Hello know how
But we we we know how
We know how

Chorus
So I will not look down

Chorus
I'm falling to the ground

Down to the ground
All the way down
Hidden in the dirt

    General CommentThis song is the best papa roach song by far. It's a great change from the other songs, although Last Resort rocks too.

    General CommentI think this is on eof the best papa roach songs. i just really dont see why it was a hidden track. because as i said it is an awsome song. i like the way they had all the sound effects in the begining, that put sort of a... how should i say "natural high" into the song so that they would be hooked and then continue to listen and then find out the god like lyrics and meanings of the real song.
