lyrics

I update my computer during thunderstorms
I live on the edge! I live on the edge!
I drive my car and I talk on the phone
I live on the edge! I live on the edge!
I get packages delivered when I’m not at home
I shave without applying water and foam
I shave with an edge! A razor blade edge!

I pay all my bills with only minutes to spare
yeah, uh huh
The change in my car could only cover one fare
One toll booth fare! One turnpike fare!
The mace in my gear is only enough for one bear
If you’re hanging with me then you better beware
I live on the edge! I live on the edge!

I only save 20% of the money I make
I’ll live on the edge if I live past 88
I use cancer causing candles on my birthday cakes
I eat medium-rare corn fed bovine steaks
I grill on the edge! I grill on the edge!

I stay up past my bedtime on Friday evenings
Lethargy edge! Insomnia edge!
I’m only capable of sharing some of my feelings
Emotional edge! Psychiatric edge!
I update my computer during thunderstorms
I’m driving my car while I talk on the phone
I’m driving my car out on the edge!

Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah
Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah
Yeah!

Third person is a terrible way to write about yourself according to Evan Burnette. He'd rather write his songs in first person, that's what makes it so easy to connect with him as a human entity. -Leo Nardin, Soup Magazine ... more
