Standing stiff on a cliff and I’m not gonna leap
Checked out the water, but it’s much too deep
No going back, there’s no turning around
So I’ll stay here and wait, God, I hope that I’m found

My, my, my, my, my, my
My thoughts were in knots but I couldn’t get to sleep
Went up to the attic to see what to keep
Threw out the useless and now it’s bone-dry
But I still couldn’t die and couldn’t figure out why

No way
No how
No what?
What now?

The place is packed, I needed that
The bottle's cracked, I’m glad for that
A good nights rest? Forget about that
I feel alive in this dive so I’ll drink to that

The place is packed, I needed that
The bottle's cracked, I’m glad for that
A good nights rest? Forget about that
I feel alive in this dive so I’ll drink to that

The attic was empty and my eyes were shut
I had to do something, but I didn’t know what
The darkness was nice, but it wasn’t enough
The clock wasn’t stopping so I had to get tough

Get tough
Get up
Get out
Get tough!

The place is packed, I needed that
The bottle's cracked, I’m glad for that
A good nights rest? Forget about that
I feel alive in this dive so I’ll drink to that

The place is packed, I needed that
The bottle's cracked, I’m glad for that
A good nights rest? Forget about that
I feel alive in this dive so I’ll drink to that

Got up and got out and found out it was raining
The car lived then died, but I wasn’t complaining
Hell bent for action and it had to be out there
I walked then I ran hoping something was somewhere

Before too long, it didn’t take long
This place came along and I ended up here

The place is packed, I needed that
The bottle's cracked, I’m glad for that
A good nights rest? Forget about that
I feel alive in this dive so I’ll drink to that

The place is packed, I needed that
The bottle's cracked, I’m glad for that
A good nights rest? Forget about that
I feel alive in this dive so I’ll drink to that
