On the precipice of everything
Oh, your future stands so still
Waiting for a train that just won’t come
All your actions in the past sting but don’t kill

Wading through shallow waters
Just to get back home

Your friends, they used to tell you of their dreams
Dream they could only dream
Foggy memories obscure
What they could really mean

Waiting with a watch in hand
For a girl that just won’t show

Read the same book once again
Cuz I like the way it feels
Living looking back
Your shoulder against the wheel

Finding out too early
Things you hoped for just aren’t real

Hearing songs of hope
And feeling jealous like a prick
I’d be willing to say sorry
But I’m just too fucking thick

(On the precipice of everything
Your future looks like shit
On the precipice of everything
You can’t leave it)

And just as luck would have it
You just feel so damn sick

I heard my roommate say
He won’t sell his soul to it
But I feel that I’ve sold out
I’ve just been living with this shit

A wasted prayer for anarchy
The future’s looking hit or miss
