I’m hanging in the balance
I’m pulling all the lines
I’m weighing second chances

Elemental passes

break into a million pieces

Comet tails will follow
satellites will circle round
neither touching or reaching solid ground
I know I’m willing and able
to create conditions for collisions
of fate or fade away
fate or fade away

I’m hanging in the balance
I’m pulling all the lines
I’m weighing second chances
