The Interim : Battles and Bands 28 : Watch the Show

2,126 : 3 ?


While you were sleeping I was wakeful watching keeping track
boiling away in terror trying to keep the madness back
Making a difference how I laugh to hear that now
How I laugh to see you try to hammer through the wall

It doesn’t matter what you do
It doesn’t matter where you go
Everything is an illusion
Settle back and watch the flow

While you were watching worried I was dancing on the edge
Spinning as you tried so hard to call me from the ledge
I just can’t explain there’s nothing left from where I came
And I would rather face this fall than play the game again

It doesn’t matter what you do
It doesn’t matter where you go
Everything is an illusion
Settle back and watch the flow

I live in chaos that is just the way I’m meant to be
When I’m not close to the edge I find it difficult to see
I know that you think you’ve found a better way to go
I’ll just sit here with my feet over the edge and watch the show

It doesn’t matter what you do
It doesn’t matter where you go
Everything is an illusion
Settle back and watch the show
