lyrics

In the labyrinths of winter
there's no easy way ahead
and the rain consumes the city
when you're lost on the razor's edge.

When there's nothing left to live for
and they're counting up the dead,
you balance on the hours,
walking on the razor's edge.

But the idiots are laughing
and bleeding from the head.
Then they feed it to the infant
crawling on the razor's edge.

All the dreams we tried to shelter
and all the words we ever said
now seem so cold and hollow
out here on the razor's edge.

In the labyrinths of winter
there's no easy way ahead
and the rain consumes the city,
falling on the razor's edge.
