Perfection,
We cannot live as prophets
We cannot sleep tonight
Given life's breath
Everyday's a privilege

Nipping at our heels
Attempting to lead us off these cliffs
Heartache navigate
We're taking the long way home
Chalkline's traced
But I haven't hit the ground just yet
Looking up,
They formed a circle
It starts to pour
This ledge is slippery when wet
I've got my best shoes on

Tied so tight
Reflecting light
They're waiting
They're planning
Black umbrella day i wake to you
Blind sided
Sidestepping
My eyelids have been sewed shut
I can see between these threads

Success,
Trial without a jury
I stutter in defense
Focus on these veins
Like highways,
They bind and they twist
This witness bench has been empty
Cells have clashed like head on
Collision course

Chalkline's traced
But I haven't hit the ground just yet
Looking up,
They formed a circle
It starts to pour this ledge is slippery
I've got my best shoes on

Tied so tight
Reflecting light
They're waiting
They're planning
Black umbrella day I wake to you
Blind sided
Sidestepping
My eyelids have been sewed shut
I can see between these threads

Chalkline's traced
But I haven't hit the ground just yet
Looking up,
They formed a circle
It starts to pour this ledge is slippery When I got my best look on

Smooth and suave
They push to shove
Tied so tight
Reflecting light
They're waiting
They're planning
Black umbrella day i wake to you
Blind sided
Sidestepping
My eyelids have been sewed shut
I can see between these threads

They're waiting
They're planning
Blind sided
Sidestepping
