I'm ready for a break
But if I stop I will not catch up
Lifelines made up of you and me and we and lies
Slowly twist around my neck,
And I can't cut them off just yet

I'm being pushed and pulled and I'll collapse
The lights turn off just like that
It's amazing how fast you turn your back
When life gets rough but I get tough
I figure it out as I go
Never will I stop or slow
'Cause time will set my soul aflame
And everyone wants me to lose this game

I feel the pressure now
It builds on me like a mountain
Of flimsy hopes and dreams, eternities
Running in my head, not tamed
Almost like my heart I say

I'm being pushed and pulled and I'll collapse
The lights turn off just like that
It's amazing how fast you turn your back
When life gets rough but I get tough
I figure it out as I go
Never will I stop or slow
'Cause time will set my soul aflame
And everyone wants me to lose this game

Nighttime washes over me
And right then that's when I seeā€¦

I'm being pushed and pulled and I'll collapse
The lights turn off just like that
It's amazing how fast you turn your back
When life gets rough but I get tough
I figure it out as I go
Never will I stop or slow
'Cause time will set my soul aflame
And everyone wants me to lose this game
