Pushing The Needle Too Far Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Well I woke up this mornin'
Gray dawn
With a prayer on my breath
See I lost somethin' precious
And God'll save me
From losin' myself

I said I think I know what's wrong
I think I know what's wrong

Now I met the Queen and I understand why
Why she closed the door
I'm not makin' excuses
But you know I've been there a few times
You know I was
I was knockin' on the door

I said I think I know what's wrong
I think I know what's wrong, wrong, wrong

See there's a man
He lived in a house
Had a family of five
Well he blew up the windows and the doors
He said I just couldn't
I just couldn't survive

We've all been removed
In one way or another
Don't know our families
Pushin' the needle too far
Pushin' the needle too far

Well if you wake up in the morning
Gray dawn
There's a prayer on your breath
See maybe you lost something precious
God'll save you
From losing yourself

I said I think I know what's wrong
Let me hear you
I think I know what's wrong

There's a Queen who closed the door
The family that lies
People who turn
The cat that has died
A boy that O.D's
A girl with a gun
The world on its knees
And a band on the run
You know you'd help me more
(The queen who closed the door)
By not giving in
(The family that lies)
You know you'd help me more
(People who turn)
By not givin' in
(And the cat that has died)
You'd help me more
(A boy that od's)
By not givin' in
(And a girl with a gun)
I said you'd help me more
(The world on it's knees)
Now don't you give in
(And a band on the run)
Ah now you'd help me more
By not givin'
I said don't you dare
(Not givin' in no)
Don't you dare
(Not givin' in no)
Don't you dare
You'd help me more
By not givin' in
I said you'd help me more
By not givin' in
I said I
I think I know what's wrong
I think I know what's wrong
We're pushin' the needle too far
