I sit on the edge overlooking the hedge,

Asking myself if this will be the last night;

Dancing around the topic that's in everybody's mind


We dance with death,

We flirt with disaster

Disappointment is on every corner


Somehow we fight through the pain

And enjoy the breakthroughs

We laugh at the discoveries

And cry in the rain


Through all and in all

We battle it with each other

Hoping to make someone’s world a better place

With each footmark we make 

This will stop the world from disaster
