(Kendall, Russell, Niven)

I been hanging my life from a frayed tight wire
I been walkin' thin ice with my heels on fire
Keep racing my heart so the beat won't miss me
Still wanting a night when the stars will kiss me

I got too much time
I don't know who's alive
Never satisfied
Livin' on the edge
The edge of time
Waiting for a perfect crime
Livin' on the edge

Everyone I see's got the cool cold shoulder
Just hangin' around gettin' slow and older
Like a little girl suckin' chemical cola
Strung out on lies that the T.V. sold her

I got too much time
I don't know who's alive
Livin' on the edge
Edge of time
