Get up early in the morning
Work until the evening
Then lay down on the bathroom floor
Travelling in my conscience
Thinking there in silence
That there wouldn’t be a better time

To give up on this life
And fix my broken mind
But I’m too afraid of that night
Afraid what I might find

What if I
Could go back in time
When there was no goddam reason
To worry ‘bout my life
What if I
Could go back to that line
I would still act the same and thrive

When the troubles are back at my door
Man I’m coming alive
When the devil comes roaming around
Man I’m coming alive
All these people try to pull me down
But I’m coming alive
No I’ll never stop foolin’ around
‘Cause, boy, it keeps me alive

It keeps me alive

Head out of the window
The feeling when the wind blows
And I’m floating like leaves in the air
Naked in the sunlight
Spoiling for a new fight
Fragile as a house of cards

I’m starting to melt
Back into the night
With each thing I’ve felt
Just a far speck of light
