lyrics

I tend to be where the light and darkness meet
On the edge of the horizon through the trees.
I am a narcissist crippled with self doubt.
I’ve got a courage that brings me to my knees.

And I am equal parts sacred & profane.
I live my life that way.
I live my life that way.

I go to parties full of everyone I love
So I can slip out the back door and be alone.
I fight with angels ’til I’m too beat up to walk
And then I hold on tight and will not let them go.

And I am equal parts sacred & profane.
I live my life that way.
I live my life that way.

I am equal parts of Abel & of Cain
I live my life that way.
I live my life that way.

I am a generous swindler; an honest man who lies.
It is my human nature. (That’s a hell of an alibi you got kid.)
I read a story once about a white washed tomb
And I’ve been thinkin’ about that story ever since you left the room.

A generous swindler. An honest man who lies.
I’ve got a fear of failure that keeps me up at night.
I read a story once about an empty tomb
But I’ve been tryin’ to pay this debt off ever since I left the womb.
