Chorus:
How long how long will I slide
Separate my side, I don’t
I don’t believe it’s fair
Slittin' my throat
Is all I ever

I heard your voice through a photograph
I thought it up and brought up the past
Once you know you can never go back
I gotta to take it on the otherside

Centuries are what it meant to me
A cemetery where I marry the sea
Stranger things that never change my mind
I gotta to take it on the otherside
Take it on the otherside
Take it on
Yeah take it on

Chorus

Pour my life into a paper cup
The ashtray’s full and I’m spillin’ my guts
She want to know am I still a slut
I gotta to take it on the otherside

A scarlet starlet and she’s in my bed
A candidate for a soul mate bled
Push the trigger and pull the thread
I gotta to take it on the otherside
Take it on the otherside
Take it on
Yeah take it on

Chorus

Turn me on take me for a hard ride
Burn me out leave me on the otherside
I yell and tell it that
It’s not my friend
I tear it down I tear it down
And then it’s born again

Chorus

How long I don’t believe it’s fair
Slittin' my throat
It’s all I ever
