When I’ve almost given up
and the will to fight still isn’t quite enough
and Plan Z just isn’t working.
Is enough ever enough
when the going’s gone but I’m not getting tough.
On the ropes, knockout is lurking.

I need a kickstart,
don’t let me fall apart.
Give me the chance, I need a soul transplant.
Grant me a change of heart.
If I could fake it
then I might make it.
Oh, but I just can’t take it

‘Cause if this is livin’ then I just might give in.

There’s still room left on my list
between chances missed and problems that don’t exist
for one more breakdown in progress.
‘Cause I’m not quite finished yet
with this one man patched-up symphony of regret.
There’s still time for me to regress.

I need a kickstart,
give me your whole heart.
I’m stuck in orbit out here in the void,
show me a little spark.
If I’m not quite myself
but I’m nobody else
I need a little help

and I think it’s high time that you throw me a lifeline.

Stranded in a deep, dark hole
Isolation now is takin’ its toll
Fingers of a fist so cold
Tighten their grip down upon my soul.

I need a kickstart,
I just can’t play the part.
I’ve tried and I just can’t do it on my own,
this is my flare in the dark.
Looking for light above
show me some sign of love
It’s down to push or shove

But this fog’s not lifting, and this pain’s not shifting
and if this is livin’ then I just might give in.
If you start to thinkin’ that I’m almost sinkin’
then I think it’s high time that you throw me a lifeline.
