How long, how long will I slide?
Separate my side, I don’t
I don’t believe it’s bad
A slit in my throat, it’s all I ever

I heard your voice through a photograph
I thought it up and brought up the past
Once you know you can never go back
I’ve got to take it on the otherside

Centuries are what it meant to me
A cemetery where I marry the sea
Stranger things could never change my mind
I’ve got to take it on the otherside

Take it on the otherside
Take it on
Take it on

How long, how long will I slide?
Separate my side, I don’t
I don’t believe it’s bad
A slit in my throat, it’s all I ever

Pour my life into a paper cup
The ashtray’s full and I’m spillin’ my guts
She wants to know am I still a slut
I’ve got to take it on the otherside

Scarlet starlet and she’s in my bed
A candidate for my soul mate bled
Push the trigger and I pull the thread
I’ve got to take it on the otherside

Take it on the otherside
Take it on
Take it on

How long, how long will I slide?
Separate my side, I don’t
I don’t believe it’s bad
A slit in my throat, it’s all I ever

Turn me on, take me for a hard ride
Burn me out, leave me on the otherside
I yell and tell it that it’s not my friend
I tear it down, I tear it down and then it’s born again

How long, how long will I slide?
Separate my side, I don’t
I don’t believe it’s bad
A slit in my throat it’s all I ever had

(How long?)
I don't, I don’t believe it’s bad
A slit in my throat, it’s all I ever
