lyrics

Been walkin' on a thin line
A rope made out of weak twine
Strung above a bottomless pit
Can't seem to find a happy medium
A place to call home
A comfortable place to just sit

I been laughin' or been cryin'
Feelin' so alive or like I'm dyin'
Just started, but now I wanna quit
I was flyin' now I'm fallin'
Had it all but now have no one
Just get me to the bottom of it

I thought that I could read your mind
A book cracked open wide
I'd read it all and memorized
But missed between the lines

I've been so far to find I'm nowhere
Learned enough to know I'm no one
Just a tiny fish in the sea
I looked through school upon school
Encountered fool upon fool
Guess I'm the only one for me

I thought that I could read your mind
A book cracked open wide
I'd read it all and memorized
But missed between the lines

High above the dark
Over a ghastly fall
I carefully keep my balance
Else, I'll be losin' it all
The words you offer from below
Make my feet lose grip
I give myself to gravity
And tumble down into that pit!

I'm still walkin' on this thin line
A rope made out of weak twine
Strung above a deep, dark pit
I wanna find that happy medium
Somewhere to call home
A comfortable place to just sit

Why can't I find that happy medium
A place to call my home
A comfortable place to just sit...
A comfortable place to just sit...
A comfortable place to just sit...
