Up here on the ledge
Up here on the ledge
I'm getting pushed to the edge
I'm getting pushed to the edge
People line up behind me to step into my shoes,
People line up behind me to step into my shoes,
Up here in the precipice
Up here in the precipice
I'm getting close to my nemesis
I'm getting close to my nemesis
People fighting each other to jump into my blues
People fighting each other to jump into my blues

There's a young kid inside me somewhere
There's a young kid inside me somewhere
He stays up all night, a vampire that never dies,
He stays up all night, a vampire that never dies,
With the blood and the moon in his eyes
With the blood and the moon in his eyes
I hear his voice when I'm comin' down,
I hear his voice when I'm comin' down,
Sleep is for fools, whe never see the sunrise,
Sleep is for fools, whe never see the sunrise,
Who never get to live twice.
Who never get to live twice.

I was a face in a magazine,
I was a face in a magazine,
When you were still playin' with your plasticine,
When you were still playin' with your plasticine,
Now you're doggin' my tail, ridin' the slipstream,
Now you're doggin' my tail, ridin' the slipstream,
You can take the fans and the enemies
You can take the fans and the enemies
The little girls who squeeze and tease
The little girls who squeeze and tease
Then pass on their social disease,
Then pass on their social disease,
Go get your penicillin.
Go get your penicillin.

I know you young and dumb,
I know you young and dumb,
I know where you're comin' from.
I know where you're comin' from.
Don't know where you're goin' to,
Don't know where you're goin' to,
But I bin there same as you,
But I bin there same as you,
You're running out of ideas,
You're running out of ideas,
And new hats to try on.
And new hats to try on.
I know you middle age
I know you middle age
Same song, different page,
Same song, different page,
I know what you're goin' through
I know what you're goin' through
Made the same mistakes as you,
Made the same mistakes as you,
All you want is some hope
All you want is some hope
And a shoulder to cry on.
And a shoulder to cry on.

There's a stranger inside me somewhere
There's a stranger inside me somewhere
That shadow behind me, don't even look like me.
That shadow behind me, don't even look like me.
An echoed apology.
An echoed apology.
He's a wolf in sheep disguise,
He's a wolf in sheep disguise,
I wake up in places I don't even recognize,
I wake up in places I don't even recognize,
Pretender in paradise.
Pretender in paradise.

It's your turn, step up and take it
It's your turn, step up and take it
If you've got the guts to hang on
If you've got the guts to hang on
You can make.
You can make.
C'mon, c'mon, come on,
C'mon, c'mon, come on,
Ooooh take it!
Ooooh take it!
