The art of living dangerously,
Is written in our DNA,
That’s why we can't resist the urge,
To let the devils out to play.

The objects in the mirror,
Are closer than they appear,
Keeping your eyes tightly shut,
Won't make them disappear.

How will you cope with all this velocity
Now that you know the brakes have failed?
What makes you think of cheating gravity,
Everyone knows it takes more than faith.
Clearly it’s time to change the philosophy,
We can’t ignore the signs to stop.
What makes you think that we’re indestructible?
Now is the time to stop playing god.

Every time you encounter friction,
You don't need to raise the stakes.
Now is the chance to give up the fiction,
We must learn from our mistakes.
You can't bury all of your secrets,
Nails won’t keep the coffin shut.
Turning back is no sign of weakness.
Devils you conjured won’t stay put.

There’s a screaming on the mountain,
There’s a howling in the wind.
Your power and money cannot save you,
You can’t pay cash for all your sins.
