lyrics

There's another Black Angel
On the other side of the wall
Another dark cloud behind your silver lining
You know the grass could always be greener
On the other side of the wall
But you’re another fence sitter
Who’s given up on trying

There's another daredevil
Heading for a fall
Another shooting star looking after their leaping
There's just another cross to carry
On the other side of the wall
But you’re a bare naked emperor
Without clothes to hang off

You found the keys to happiness
Then you lost the door
You cleaned the windows to your soul
But never opened the curtains
You know the sunlight is beaming down
On the other side of the wall
Tomorrow might be a brighter day
But you cant be certain

You've been preaching many virtues to the virtuous
You've been spitting out advice
Like you think you mean it
You've been trying to lead the blind
When they know a better way
You're just another daydream believer
Sleepwalking this beaten path

It's another wounded night
Another black coffee
A shot of rum to get your voices flowing
It's just another bleeding evening
Nailed to your wall
Well I might not be the man you want
At all
But at least I am still here trying
