We're living in a different reality
We're toeing the same line
We give in we call it neutrality,
A joke with no punchline
The silver plated hero
Meets the golden hearted whore
The odds'll give you zero
She'll be leaving in a few days more
Movin' on forever, maybe she don't care
Holding on together, maybe it just ain't there

You're dancing on a high wire
You need to be so sure
There used to be a lifeline
There isn't anymore

We are the same with no similarity,
We talk at the same time
We believe in freedom and charity
As long as I get mine
The ivory madonna is walking
Through the door
You watch her from a window,
It doesn't matter anymore
Moving on forever, maybe she don't care
Holding on together, maybe it just ain't there

You're dancing on a high wire
You need to be so sure
There used to be a life-line
There isn't anymore

    General Commenti'm not good at explaining lyrics but this tells me someone is living life on the edge, you need to be sure before you fall in love. you can fall in love with someone who you shouldnt be with yet still think you are made for each other. i'm surprised no one has commented on this song actually, but i spose the only place most people have heard of alan parson's project is off austin powers heh.
