World On A String Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I see the world on a string
It's hanging from a wire
It gets tangled up and spun around
Like the truth inside a liar

Sometimes you wanna get high
And sometimes you run and hide
'Cause it eats you up and spits you out
It swallows you alive

When I'm down on my knees and it hurts to believe I'm bleeding
You'll bring me back to life
When there's no songs to sing and no flowers to bring no feeling
You'll bring me back to life, you'll bring me back to life

I see the world on a beach
It's sinking in the sand
Oh, it tries to suck you down with it
You better get out while you can

Sometimes you wanna scream out
And sometimes you just can't
'Cause your lips feel like they're glued together
And no one gives a damn

When I'm down on my knees and it hurts to believe I'm bleeding
You'll bring me back to life
When there's no songs to sing and no flowers to bring no feeling
You'll bring me back to life, you'll bring me back to life

This is the world on a string
There's no songs left to sing
Just sing, sing

I see the good, I see the bad, the revolution
I see the happy, I see the sad, the absolution
I see hate and I see love when the world's on a string

I see the good, I see the bad, the revolution
I see the happy, I see the sad, the absolution
I see hate and I see love when the world's on a string

When I'm down on my knees and it hurts to believe I'm bleeding
You'll bring me back to life
When there's no songs to sing and no flowers to bring no feeling
You'll bring me back to life

When I'm down on my knees and it hurts to believe I'm bleeding
You'll bring me back to life
When there's no songs to sing and no flowers to bring no feeling
You'll bring me back to life, you'll bring me back to life
You'll bring me back to life
