A bat on the edge
With a bad mind
Privately found
The best release I know
Some way to let go
I hang on to my vertigo
I hang on
A slow death ahead
Is a sad slide
Perfectly formed
To feel a fall like lead
A balcony for my bed
I hang on to my vertigo
I hang on
Spinning alone
I look down
I'm unshy on the skyline
Hiding at home
Don't you feel low
Wasting your breath
And your friends' time
Up, oh
I want to be alone
Me on a high wire
A cat on the ledge
With a bad sign
Secretly dead
It's good to look down
A one way view and so
I hang on to my vertigo
I hang on
Spinning alone
I look down
I'm unshy on the skyline
Hiding at home
Don't you feel low
Wasting your breath
And your friends' time
Up, oh
I want to be alone
Me on a high wire
Up, oh
I want to be alone
Me on a high wire
I'm over your head
