I looked into the mirror
What did I see
There was a big black beast
Looking back at me

You looked into my eyes
What did you see
You saw a big black beast
Magnified in me

Like a man on a wire
I set myself on fire
Destroyer of our dream
Trying to find a spark
Desperate for love
Like a man on a wire

I was like a volcano
Just waiting to explode
I [helped it was a wreck there reborn]
And I've been transformed

I was a green eyed monster
Could you tell I was afraid
I sat myself down and shot my fear in the face

Like a man on a wire
I set myself on fire
Destroyer of our dream
Trying to find a spark
Desperate for love
Like a man on a wire

That's right
Yeah, I see you sitting around
With your wristwatch
And your white collared shirt
I see you hoping to watch me fail
You're hoping to watch me fail

I sat myself down and shot my fear in the face
Like a man on a wire
I set myself on fire
Destroyer of our dream
Trying to find a spark
Desperate for love
Like a man on a wire

Like a man on a wire
I set myself on fire
Destroyer of our dream
Trying to find a spark
Desperate for love
Like a man on a wire
