Alkaline Trio
Balanced On A Shelf
A somewhat inviting, very different kind of hell
To live without ever looking at yourself
You see life is so much simpler when it's balanced on a shelf
That's been hung perfectly placed there in the sun

Now look at how you're admired by everyone
Who sees you
Now they know your name
But is it real?
All your bad habits have become your life's appeal

And then it's where did you go wrong
Where did you go wrong?
You're screaming where did you go wrong
Where did you go wrong?
Well first of all and worst of all
You looked inside yourself, didn't care much for what you saw
For what you saw

Can you imagine, did you ever play with dolls?
You can protect your cotton heart behind the skin of porcelain walls
You keep staring to your future through these marble eyes they show
Everything I'm never ever gonna have
That's a giant pill, but swallow if you can

You'll start again, you'll change your name and be reborn
And begin to mend all that has been torn

And then it's where did you go wrong
Where did you go wrong?
You're screaming where did you go wrong
Where did you go wrong?
Well first of all and worst of all
You looked inside yourself, didn't care much for what you saw
For what you saw
