Mend this careless thread, it's gone askew
(thread on my sweater's pendulous, step back and pull it
Watch it unravel faster than a speeding bullet)
Pull and see how much we can undo
(thread on my sweater's pendulous, step back and pull it
Watch it unravel faster than a speeding bullet)

On a burning bridge your
Options are minimal at best
Depending on where you're standing
And how much breath is in your chest
If it came down to it, would you hightail home and hide
Or dance on fire, enjoy the ride?

Mend this careless thread, it's gone askew
(thread on my sweater's pendulous, step back and pull it
Watch it unravel faster than a speeding bullet)
Pull and see how much we can undo
(thread on my sweater's pendulous, step back and pull it
Watch it unravel faster than a speeding bullet)

At the heart of it all
That innermost, your firey core
There's an amassing armor
That's building you into a bore
Life's a match in a gas tank
Don't ever mourn the ebbing tide
Just dance on fire and enjoy the ride!

Hey!

Mend this careless thread, it's gone askew
(thread on my sweater's pendulous, step back and pull it
Watch it unravel faster than a speeding bullet)
Pull and see how much we can undo
(thread on my sweater's pendulous, step back and pull it
Watch it unravel faster than a speeding bullet)

Hey!
Hey!
Hey!
Hey, hey, hey, hey

Mend this careless thread, it's gone askew
(thread on my sweater's pendulous, step back and pull it
Watch it unravel faster than a speeding bullet)
Pull and see how much we can undo
(thread on my sweater's pendulous, step back and pull it
Watch it unravel faster than a speeding bullet)
