(Smith/Dickinson/Harris)

Love is a razor and I walked the line on that silver blade
Slept in the dust with his daughter, her eyes red with
The slaughter of innocence
And I will pray for her
I will call her name out loud
I would bleed for her
If I could only see her now

Living on a razors edge
Balancing on a ledge
Living on a razors edge
Balancing on a ledge
Living on a razors edge
Balancing on a ledge
You know, You know

The evil that men do lives on and on.....
The evil that men do lives on and on.....
The evil that men do lives on and on.....
The evil that men do lives on and on.....

Circle of fire my baptism of joy at an end it seems
The seventh lamb slain, the book of life opens before me
And I will pray for you
Some day I may return
Don't you cry for me
Beyond is where I learn

Living on a razors edge
Balancing on a ledge
Living on a razors edge
You know, You know

The evil that men do lives on and on.....
The evil that men do lives on and on.....
The evil that men do lives on and on.....
The evil that men do lives on and on.....

Living on a razors edge
Balancing on a ledge
Living on a razors edge
You know, You know

The evil that men do lives on and on.....
The evil that men do lives on and on.....
The evil that men do lives on and on.....
The evil that men do lives on and on.....

The evil, The evil, The evil that men do....
The evil, The evil, The evil that men do....
