lyrics

I walk the line you push it back
I compromise and you attack
I can’t respond I can’t react
I will take the middle path

When you open your mouth
There are no words there are just sounds
Your testosterone shout
Is freaking me out

You need to win at any cost
I’ll take the hit I’ll take the loss
You can take your victory lap
I will take the middle path

What happened to you?
You used to be cool
Your true north has gone south
You’re freaking me out

Behind your back I’m on fire
When I get a chance I’ll crucify you
But I can wait, I can’t wait
Don’t mistake my silence for being weak
You can never sleep

Nothing good will come of this
You should quit while you’re ahead
You can have your heart attack
I will take the middle path
