Cut my heart open wide on this restless slide
And deny there is a bright side to it all
Gun in hand and aiming at the tiny lights
Well I don’t wanna see the bright side of it all

Could have been knocked out
But I’m on my feet
Could have been an ice cube
In the August heat
Could have been a watchdog
On a golden chain
Could have been summer
Drowned in autumn rain

My heart is cut open wide on a restless slide
And I don’t wanna see the bright side to it all
With my eyes shut blind to the tiny lights
Well I don’t wanna see the bright side to it all

Could have been miraculous
Or a numbered goat
Somewhere inbetween
I watch the pictures float
Could have been fireworks
In a high lit sky
Anything and nothing
But why should I

Cut my heart open wide on this restless slide
And deny there is a bright side to it all
Gun in hand and aiming at the tiny lights
Well I don’t wanna see the bright side to it all

Could have been banned from the light
But it’s not like that
Could have been chosen to be cynical, some iron failure
Led to believe I was lost
But it’s snot like that
Under my eyelids, there’s my bright side to it all.

Could have broken
By some twist of fate
Well, we just carry on now
Neither wrecked nor straight
You know what it feels like
You’ve been there as well
No it’s not a problem
No it’s not a problem

Forgotten line, yet a part of your last design
And I would never see the bright side to it all
Turn myself into ghost with a concrete spine
And I would never see the bright side to it all

Could have been banned from the light
But it’s not like that
Could have been chosen to be cynical, some iron failure
Led to believe I was lost
But it’s not like that
Under my eyelids, there’s my bright side to it all
My bright side to it all.
