Lyrics


Edge To Life

I'm not waiting (There's an edge to life that will cut you like a knife)

For a king (When you lay your head down)

To rule my mind (There's a castle of sand that gets kicked in your face)

Or anything (To see how easily you'd fall from grace)

I don't need your (There's a piece of dust)

Band of gold (That crumbles in your hand if you decide to lose control)

To take me where I need to go


A simple man (No one can escape when you find out they're fake)

Well he could do more (And you want to take the whole lot down)

But you can only see the traces

That have gone before


There's a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow

If you walk the white line

There's a piece of dust that crumbles in your hand

if you decide to lose control

There's a castle of sand that gets kicked in your face

To see how easily you'd fall from grace

Yes, there's a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow


There's an edge to life

That will cut you like a knife

When you lay your head down

You know you can't escape

When you find out they're fake

And you want to take the whole lot down


There's no truth in the lie that only angels cry

When everybody knows we're all born to die

There's an edge to life

That will cut you like a knife


I miss you


There's no power that is such a thrill

That can make a man or anything


I miss you
