lyrics

There’s a time when you’ve lost all sense of fear
Things build up, inhibition disappears
Exhausted all your reason, ways and means
Can’t stand it, you’ve just got to blow off steam

(CHORUS)
World is turning, life is strange
Didn’t know you’d end up treed,
Hounds are baying at your feet
You must leap into their teeth

In a burning house
The blinding smoke and misery
You just move, you can’t explain …
Let the chips fall where they may.

Burst came sudden but the but the pressure’d built so long
(Had to do it, didn’t mean it, had to do it)
Years of of cracking, ain’t no levee built that strong
(Had to do it, didn’t mean it, had to do it)

They kept on pushing pushing pushing
Like it’s just game they had to play
Didn’t realize how much they’d gamble away
(Had to do it, didn’t mean it, had to do it)

[CHORUS]

Sometimes you've got to do something unforgivable
Just to go on living.
It’s a matter of self-preservation.
Let the chips fall where they may.
