Lyrics

Standing on the edge but holding out
To see that all worth holding has been saved
Cold caffeine to see me through
Another blurry line between last night and this morning

To invent
To transcend the everyday
Its all been beaten lying lifeless in the grave
A chain of thought filling the ashtray
In another 4am whatever it takes
Whatever it takes

Up and down the roads we've paved
Where getting closer seems like drifting further away
Searching for a deeper shade
Stuck on a blurry line between last night and this morning

Its nothing new
Its all been done


To invent
To transcend the everyday
Its all been beaten lying lifeless in the grave
A chain of thought filling the ashtray
In another 4am whatever it takes
Whatever it takes
