"Walking on a Wire" as written by and Ryan Pope James Suptic....
I'm the one you've been hanging 'round
Just stop hearing any sound
Found you face down on the ground
Found a friend never could be found
I've been waiting around
Systems failing now
On your honor so I hear
It's never been your fault you swear
Is the union based on fear?
Tenement of tears
I've been waiting
Systems failing
Walking on a wire on the ground
Is this all your world tonight?
Is this all your world tonight?
Have to tell a lie
To avoid a brutal fight
I've been waiting
Systems failing
Walking on a wire on the ground

    General CommentI heard this song live also, but it was after the cd had been released so i knew the song. But I agree with mighty in that the song was so fucking awesome when they played it live. They added on 2 minutes of instrumentals at the end, and then Matthew sang the words, "THe shit won't follow me no more" or something like that in replace of walking on a wire on the ground. and as he does a the end with the chorus, he sang this line extremely high and w/ so much emotion that it sent chills down my spine. Definately an awesome song on the record, but it pales in comparison to the live version
