Gettin’ By

(Nicole Unser)

 

I can’t trust the company I keep

Especially because it’s usually just me

But the war is real and the blood is red

And the battle cries ring out in my head

 

How do you escape when the enemy’s in the mirror

So I take the pills and I swallow my fear

Just trying to keep up but life takes its toll

I’d do just about anything not to lose control

 

CHORUS

Cause it keeps me stable, it keeps me alive

I’m out on this cable, dangling by a wire

Who am I kidding, can you really call this living?

I just call it getting’ by, I just call it getting’ by

 

I can fly higher, higher than most

But the good times are shadowed by the lowest of lows

I can smell it comin, like a breath of sulphur

I’m plucked from the sky by the mouth of a vulture

They say it’s a choice, I should just rise up

To fake a smile, and embrace the numb

 

CHORUS

Cause it keeps me stable, it keeps me alive

I’m out on this cable, dangling by a wire

Who am I kidding, can you really call this living?

I just call it getting’ by, I just call it getting’ by

 

Cause it keeps me stable, it keeps me alive

I’m out on this cable, dangling by a wire

Who am I kidding, can you really call this living?

I just call it getting by

I’m just barely getting by

At least I’m still getting by
