A side of temperance, an appetite for excess
I'm burning out like your cigarette.

(You has me cornered)
You had me at goodbye
(I lived to watch you)
I love to see you slip away
(I enjoyed captivity)
Starring at a car crash

We kill at weddings and live for funerals.
We're taking steps on the water just to show
We do whatever we want to.

(Oh!)
Did I forget who I was?
Did I forget just where I came from?
Did I just lose who I am?

And I can't fight it

Maybe we should walk away from this.
Take our proverbial walk into the sunset.
Maybe we are destined to be different.
We were designed for more resilience than this...
But we don't know how and we live in the now.
If we were smarter maybe we would try to fake it.
Maybe we should walk away from this.
And stop being ourselves.
Just stop being yourself
If you want to be happy.

(Oh!)
Did I forget who I was?
Did I forget just where I came from?
Did I just lose who I am?
This is the fine line I stand
(Stand amid the roar.)
This is the fine line I stand
(Stand amid the roar.)
This is the fine line I...
