What happens when the line is crossed and there is no turning back

Breaking down, broken down

Fed up with all the shit

Keep getting pushed, getting shoved

Can't stand the sight of it, the stupidity

Fuse is short, shortening faster

All the shit, driven me to the edge

has me wavering on the brink

has me questioning my morals

One more tiny step, and the edge

falls away from me

One more tiny instigation

and what will be witnessed

is me not in control of myself, control is lost

When the edge is breached

you don't want to see what will transpire

Self-destruction

and I'll take you with me

Do I want to know what the breaking point is?

An emphatic NO

Or more importantly, when it is?

An even more emphatic NO

But it's not up to me

I wish it were

But now I sit, and watch the world go by me

while I pull it together

and turn it around

Until then, don't push me

I'm standing on The Edge
