I see the world on a string
It's hanging from a wire
It gets tangled up and spun around
Like the truth inside a liar
Sometimes you wanna get high
And sometimes you run and hide
'Cause it eats you up and spits you out
It swallows you alive

[Chorus]
When I'm down on my knees
And it hurts to believe (I'm bleeding)
You'll bring me back to life
When there's no songs to sing
And no flowers to bring (no feeling)
And you'll bring me back to life
And you'll bring me back to life

I see the world on a beach
It's sinking in the sand
Oh it tries to suck you down with it
You better get out while you can
Sometimes you wanna scream out
And sometimes you just can't
'Cause your lips
Feel like they're glued together
And no one gives a damn

[Chorus]

This is the world on a string
There's no songs left to sing
Just sing
Sing

I see the good
I see the bad
The revolution
I see the happy
I see the sad
The absolution
I see hate
And I see love
When the world's on a string

I see the good
I see the bad
The revolution
I see the happy
I see the sad
The absolution
I see hate
And I see love
When the world's on a string

[Chorus]

When I'm down on my knees
And it hurts to believe (I'm bleeding)
You'll bring me back to life
When there's no songs to sing
And no flowers to bring (No feeling)
And you'll bring me back to life
And you'll bring me back to life
And you'll bring me back to life.
