lyrics

Dancing on the precipice
Way past hit or miss
Can't tell what’s real
And what's just wishful thinking
But that perception is short-lived
Some moments never come to pass
Watching as the birds fly past
Just a signpost fading fast

Illusions, delusions, confusion
Keep those thoughts in seclusion
It's getting harder all the time
Not to cross the line
Across the borderline

Pay the calm no mind
The water is getting rough
The other shoe falls
This life often just isn't enough
Still waiting for the breakthrough
With time on my hands
Running closer to empty
Looking for a clearing to land

Illusions, delusions, confusion
Keep those thoughts in seclusion
It's getting harder all the time
Not to cross the line
Across the borderline

The jewels of kings and queens
Mean nothing
It's going to take more than riches
To make me turn my back and leave
You're as essential as air
And it's getting hard to breathe
You've got your hooks in me
But I don't want to break free

Illusions, delusions, confusion
Keep those thoughts in seclusion
It's getting harder all the time
Not to cross the line
Across the borderline
