Lyrics

I joined the shuffle down the long sad line
Brain cells are working overtime
Like an inset to the light inside
A brave heart has got nowhere to hide

You hold your breath for that winning streak
You play the victim to their double speak
Bolt the door no you don’t look back
You can’t help but get in on the act

I know what you’re reaching for
Rumours of riches beyond that plate glass door
Can’t save you from the price you’ll pay
But I can’t crawl that way

It’s not what you need, it’s what you desire
Amputation couldn’t quench that fire
Into the parking lot the game gets rough
To go the distance isn’t nearly enough

I know what you’re reaching for
Rumours of riches beyond that plate glass door
Can’t save you from the price you’ll pay
But I can’t crawl that way no more
Can’t crawl that way no more

And the past has been lost
And you can’t even know there’s a cost
And your goading eyes still waiting for you

You got the energy to show me how
I hope I’ll never be where you are now
To walk the line into the lion’s mouth
Already know what I don’t want to find out
That’s for sure

I know what you’re reaching for
Rumours of riches beyond that plate glass door
Can’t save you from the price you’ll pay
But I can’t crawl that way

I know what you’re reaching for
Rumours of riches beyond that plate glass door
Can’t save you from the price you’ll pay
But I can’t crawl that way no more

Na na na…
