lyrics

I can tell with every breath that I draw.
I'm getting closer to the day that I both welcome and abhor.
And to be honest I don't know which one it is that I will feel until I'm knocking at that door.

When I was young I was sheltered from the world.
You can't stay this way forever so my misery unfurled.
Now I stand at this precipice, gazing down to the abyss.
Do I hang on for life? or do I slip?

The world's a fearful place, it's cruel and it's unkind.
And it's only getting worse, i will weep for it's decline.
I try so hard just to lead by my example, not perpetuate the cycle of a hatred so innate.
But I perpetuate this cycle, and a hatred so innate.

When I was young I was sheltered from the world.
You can't stay this way forever so my misery unfurled.
Now I stand at this precipice, gazing down to the abyss.
Do I hang on for life?
Do I hang on for life?
Oh do I hang on for dear life or do I slip?

I do not love the world, there's many I would burn.
Not because their viewpoint differs but because they'll never learn.
Just because something is right for you, it doesn't mean in turn.
That it's an axiom of truth, you cannot take and not return.

It never dies, it never dies, it never dies oh semper fi.
To the supremacy of the landmass on which you came to life.
And should the colour of your skin lead you to think that what's within.
Is of more value or more worth, the world should rue your birth.

When I was young I was sheltered from the world.
You can't stay this way forever so my misery unfurled.
Now I stand at this precipice, gazing down to the abyss.
Do I hang on for life?
Do I hang on for life?
Oh do I hang on for dear life or do I slip?
