Fighting Gravity – Shattered And Torn lyrics

(Lyrics, Music: Triano, Peterson, Lawson, Boyd)
My back's to the wall, my hands are tied
Say goodbye to the sleepless night
The glass is shattered and torn, Shattered and torn
Look over your shoulder, run away from the pack
Down a vacant corridor
Turn the knife in your back, knife in your back
Can't let my mind begin to slow
Or start to play the fool
The lamp is burning down to the core
No exceptions to the rule
The clock on the wall says it's getting late
Pick it up, don't hesitate
Even if it means you gotta let go
Take it down to the bottom line
Stripped bare, it seems unkind
And if you know what you want, the show is gonna last
(Instrumental Break)
The door is open, just step inside
And throw the guilt away
And if you know what you want, then that's the price that you pay
I've seen that look somewhere before
Promises those eyes have made
And now they're shattered and torn, shattered and torn
No exceptions to the rule...
