G          F#                      G          
Between a broken nose and a fake smile 
Between piety and gunpowder 
Between fighting and fleeing the scene 
Between murder and diplomacy 

G          F#              G
Between aggression and oblivion 
Between brutal and realistically well behaved 
Between screaming and pulling in the reins 
Esus4                     E
Between tiptoeing and ambleing 

Bm         F#                    Bm F#
What am I to do with all this fire 
(I'd like to hit you but I'd never hit you) 
Bm                  F#                Bm   F#
Would you stay with me in this red space
(I'd like to slap you but I'd never slap you) 

Between violence and silently seething 
Between my fist and my pollyanna flower 
Between "fuck you" to your face and it's alright 
Between war and denial 


Between flying vases and secretly weeping 
Between loose cannons and ever downplaying 
Between bruises and rudely differing 
Between bursting and boiling 

What am I to do with all this burning 
(I'd like to hurt you but I'd never hurt you) 
Do I overwhelm you in this place 
(I'd like to kill you but I'd never kill you) 


What am I to do with all this fire 
Can you understand me in this place?
