Bayonets

lyrics

Ever Sat on the edge of a cliff? Jump off into the abyss? Just fall no telling where you'll land? New city, a whole new f*cking world. Don't know nobody but the damn girl you follow, the knife in her hand. No clue how you'll get by but a guitar and a cigarette can keep you warm. So sit on the edge of a cliff. Get pushed a little closer to it. Look down she knows you like it. Fine line between brave and stupid, but that's what you get. Don't look back. Damn you and your bayonets. Stand up. Look back at 'em all, waiting, looking for a fall. Guns raised, brandishing their smiles. "Go on," the crowd says with their eyes, as they ignore your desperate cries. You've lost, but you've known for a while. 'Cause this is going just how you planned it: an army of loved ones to see you off the ledge. But it looked a whole lot more like flight three months prior to tonight. Time's come so step to bat, son. Fine line between brave and stupid, that's what you get. Don't look back. Damn you and your bayonets! Platitudes, yeah I suck at that sh*t. Your gratitude? I ain't seen it quite yet. My parachute's in rips and tears from wolves and bears that follow me as I fall. Fine lines between brave and stupid, but that's what you get. Don't look back. Damn you and your bayonets!
