    "Knife Edge" Lyrics

    Emerson, Lake & Palmer

    Just a step cried the sad man
    Take a look down at the madman
    Theatre kings on silver wings
    Fly beyond reason
    From the flight of the seagull
    Come the spread claws of the eagle
    Only fear breaks the silence
    As we all kneel pray for guidance

    Tread the road cross the abyss
    Take a look down at the madness
    On the streets of the city

    Only spectres still have pity

    Patient queues for the gallows
    Sing the praises of the hallowed
    Our machines feed the furnace
    If they take us they will burn us

    Will you still know who you are...
    When you come to who you are...

    When the flames have their season
    Will you hold to your reason
    Loaded down with your talents
    Can you still keep your balance
    Can you live on a knife-edge
