This version is different than the single that was released early last year.


I am an outcast
And it suits me fine
God knows my actions
Really crossed the line
Each time you touch a part of me
I fear that you'll break it
Cause I've done something I regret
And I'll never shake it

A slip of the finger
A mark that will linger forever
Hero or villain
A legacy hinges on
A slip of the finger

The fleeting impulse
Of a maniac
A flash of panic
I can't take it back
Kings abdicate and nations fall
For smaller offences
Thought I could justify it all
Until I came to my senses

Nothing to live for
Careless in defeat
Why bother looking
When I cross the street?
I'd promise anything to go back
To when my past wasn't checkered
But every key we press is part
Of our permanent record

One lapse of judgement
Ablaze in the snarling heat of the moment
That's when I lost you darling.


from Adjustments Pt. 1, released June 12, 2012
