Sharp Knife

Album: Ursa Major (2009)
  • Time tick tick ticks after me
    My mp3 is out of juice
    I wrote a song for you but what's the use
    How did we get knocked so loose, knocked so loose.

    Someone I swore I'd never be
    Who trades his dreams for security
    Walks this city blindly
    Lately it's a little hard for me to see
    Lately it's a little hard for me to believe

    And it's all disappearing
    And it all falls apart
    And it seems like the ending
    Is a lot like the start

    Well nature has its own rules
    Like gravity crushing me
    And lies, I'm of the memory
    Lately it's a little hard for me to believe
    At least you left a mark on me

    And I think there's a reason
    At least there's a sign
    And all that we call chaos
    I will say it's by design
    But I'm just lying

    What you need is a sharp knife, son
    To come back down from an all time low
    I think I'm not the only one
    I wish I was a sharp knife
    Swing that blade right through my life
    Careful, you could hurt someone
    I wish I was a sharp knifeto cut

    A shiv,
    A shiv,
    A shiv,
    A shiv.

    So new friend can you hear this?
    Can we return to fearless?
    Merry pranksters one and all
    And walk that devil down the hall

    Yes it's all disappearing
    And we should all just go along
    And it all would be so easy,
    If we could just say, "let it be."
    But that's not me.

    What you need is a sharp knife, son.
    You can come out of an all time low
    Seems like I'm not the only one
    I know I'm not the only one
    I wish I was a sharp knife

    Swing that blade right through my life
    Careful, you could hurt someone
    I wish I was a sharp knife,
    A sharp knife,
    To cut.

    A shiv,
    A shiv,
    A shiv,
    A shiv.

    What you need is a sharp knife son
    You can come back down from an all time low
    Seems like I'm the only one
    I wish I was a sharp knife.
    Swing that blade right through my life
    Careful you could hurt someone
    I wish I was a sharp knife
    A sharp knife
    To cut.

    A shiv,
    A shiv,
    A shiv,
    A shiv. Writer/s: STEPHAN JENKINS, TONY FREDIANELLI
