We were fading like the bottom of a bad dream
We were heading south looking for a good time
Faces look so pretty in the spotlight
All blown out and bathed inside a world of white

Sometimes I feel like I am holding it together
Sometimes I feel like everything is fine
Sometimes I feel like I'm out of control
I feel like I am falling, like my life is on a slide, slide
Slide, slide, slide, slide, slide

It was sunny on the streets down there by the water
We would get hammered on the beach, right down by the water
She was slightly out of reach, a rich man's only daughter
I think she slept with me just so she could piss off her father

I am elastic, I am easy with the damage
I am ecstatic, I am hungry for the climb
Sometimes I feel like I am falling apart
I feel like I am falling, like my life is on a slide, slide
Slide, slide, slide, slide

I know it's wrong but I just can't seem to act my age
I know it's wrong but I just can't seem to control my rage
My heart is racing and I'm losing my mind
Sometimes I feel like my life is on a slide, slide

Those faces look so scary in the harsh light
All blown out and bathed inside a world of white
We were shining like the good part of a bad time
We were laughing, happy just to be along for the ride

Sometimes I feel like I am really lucky
I have made it through bruised and scarred and half alive
Sometimes I feel like I'm out of control
I feel like I am falling like my life is on a slide
Slide, slide, slide, slide

Yes, I know it's wrong but I just can't seem to act my age
Yes, I know it's wrong but I just can't seem to control my rage
My heart is racing and I'm losing my mind
Sometimes I feel like my life is on a slide
