Lyrics

Faultline

I’m on a lifeboat waving at the ship as it’s sinking and a flare’s being dimmed by the fog
I’ve had a hard time trying to understand what she’s thinking but it’s just another puzzle to solve
And I can’t speed up I’m up against the governor and I can’t seem to focus or fade
And there’s a riptide pulling so hard but I know I can’t afford to get carried away

Straddling a fault line
And the fault is all mine
I got one foot in and one out of the grave

I can feel this bridge crumbling beneath my wheels as I’m almost to the other side
It sways and moans like a shaking skyscraper and it’s gonna be a hell of a ride
As I walk by there’s a girl in the window dancing ‘round and spinning flames
I turn my head to a mime all in white and he’s showing me who I should blame

Straddling a fault line
And the fault is all mine
I got one foot in and one out of the grave

I’ve been feeling not worth a continental, am I just another cog in the wheel
Would you have my head on a plate made of silver just to gain some commercial appeal
I can’t say no and I can’t say yes but I can’t seem to turn it away
And I find myself lying square in the middle of an unfortunate bed I made

Straddling a fault line
And the fault is all mine
I got one foot in and one out of the grave
