there's always a downside impossible together not ever happy apart I cut myself to the bone, again cut it too close to the heart quicksand might look like it's safe there's always a downside I fool myself again, again I fool myself the fairytale is like life you're in the ground by the end you're crucified by your friends hanging high all these aches and pains attempting to abstain away from all their games success is self contained proving I'm to blame it's time I bear this shame I feel whole this way so throw it all away as I lie awake with every breath you take every promise you break as I call your name I fool myself again again I fool myself it's coming to a close that's just the way it goes like when the red wine flows I know I'm not alone we're drowning, drunk and stoned embracing the unknown no time left to atone a chain is only as strong this has gone on too long where'd it all go wrong you've got your life in your hands you'll come back just like pretend surprise hold on to what you can remember, remember make sense of what you can decipher, decipher concentrate on accomplishing miracles and just be happy with what you get everything has a downside to it that's just the way it goes like when the red wine flows I know I'm not alone we're drowning, drunk and stoned there is a god I've never known the fairytale is like life this is the way the story goes it's coming to a close you're in the ground by the end this is the way the story goes it's coming to a close you're crucified by your friends this is the way the story goes hanging high this is the way the story goes hanging high this is the way the story goes it's coming to a close
