Lyrics

Things are so complicated now
I think I'm gonna throw out my neck
I don't know what tomorrow brings
And there ain't no way I can check
I go out to the movies
I tell my girl she's groovy
But no one ever seems to get satisfied

Things are so complicated now
I think I'm gonna curl up and die
One million things are in my head
And no matter how I try
I can't seem to get sorted
My plans end up aborted
The days sink through my clutching hands like rain

There ain't no better way to fly
I've punched the devil in the eye
There ain't no better way to live
On the edge

Things are all jumbled up in knots
And I'm caught in the spider's web
Only now just a matter of time before he comes up to eat up my head
So I'm bitter too now,
Fun time is all through now
Give my blessings to those who keep on

There ain't no better way to fly
I've punched the devil in the eye
There ain't no better way to live
On the edge

On high
On high
