    There is something to be said for phuckin up
    What, I'm not quite sure
    Perhaps the rush of doing what you shouldn't
    The defiance of "I don't care"
    The bravery of "I'll try anything once"
    The curiosity of "I just wanted to see"
    Just being "out there" is a high in itself
    Everybody likes to get high on something

    Stepping to the edge
    Looking out over the madness
    Compelled to be part of it
    No half-assed jump will do
    No
    It must be a head first swan-dive
    Complete with a full turn and three quarter twist
    Need to go all the way
    Yes, sometime we do dig the madness

    Living on the emotional edge
    Finding peace in forbidden excitment
    Perhaps the confusion feels good
    Like sleeping with a Poet
    You get so much of everything
    Not caring if you can handle it
    But you want it

    Without caution or pause
    We find light on the darkside
    Light only we can see
    We look for it
    Find a way to bathe in it
    Smile when we get through it
    Seek it again

    BE
