You're the soul with no religion
There's ice in your embrace
In your dance of indecision
I see the anger in your face

A little drink to help my vision
A little something for the pain
There's no drug for my condition
There's no sweetness in the taste

Tell me where the rides gonna lead you
Do I have to pay to be your friend?
There's nothing left to say
When you slipped away

I can see you fading fast
I won't let you take me
(When you slipped away)
I can see your burning stare
Nothing's gonna shake me, oh
(You slip away)

You're a world of blind ambition
Staring through the looking glass
You will meet your own collision
When your conscience comes to task

Steal the love from those around you
Help yourself to everything
Take the shelter that surrounds you
It leaves you standing in the rain

Tell me if the money can heal you
Do I have to pray to make it end?
There's nothing left to say
When you slipped away

I can see you fading fast
I won't let you take me
(When you slipped away)
I can see your burning stare
Nothing's gonna shake me, oh
(Slip away)
(Slipped away hey hey)

(I slipped away)
I can see your burning stare
Nothing's gonna shake me, oh
(As you slip away, hey hey)
I can see you fading fast
I won't let you take me

I can see your burning stare
Nothing's gonna shake me, oh
(As you slip away)
