All lyrics written by me as well.


Standing, on the edge.
Falling, to my knees
Try not, to lose your head, now.
Just hurry up and take what you please.

Walking, on the line.
Don’t look down, they said.
Sooner or later, it comes down to chance.
At the end, it was rigged from the start.

Oooooh, oooh oooh oooh.
(that’s life in utopia)
Oooooh, oooh oooh oooh.
(couldn’t hide in utopia)
Oooooh, oooh oooh oooh.
(friends lie in utopia)
Oooooh, oooh oooh oooh.
(dreams die in utopia)

Sunset, on the beach.
Sunrise, in my head.
Time is running short, and
The streets, are running red.

Buildings, falling down.
Try not, to lose my head.
Wake up, filled with dread.
The world has come to its end.

Sun, set, on utopia.
Sun, rise, on the edge of the world.
Sun, set, on utopia.

Everything that you know,
Is all a lie. (x3)
