Safety Net

from the album "Darn Floor - Big Bite"

Words and Music by Terry Taylor, Tim Chandler, and Greg Flesch
1987 Broken Songs (ASCAP)
Down to the black bridge of sighs
She drains her head by the river
Bowed to the father of lies
She hangs on the edge of forever

She falls, she gets
Caught in the safety net
She breaks, she mends
In the safety net she starts doubting again

Beneath the watch towers and wire
Are armies that march across frozen ground
You're gonna call me a liar
When I try to tell you what's coming down

I fall, I get
Caught in the safety net
I break, I mend
In the safety net, I start over again
I start it over again

Strung out in the cradle of grace
Wiping the blood from the warm gun
You leave no power or trace
Shot like a bullet to the kingdom come

You fall, you get
Caught in the safety net
You break, but you mend
In the safety net you start living again
I start it over again

Down to the black bridge of sighs
She drains her head by the river
Bowed to the father of lies
She hangs on the edge of forever

She falls, she gets
Caught in the safety net
She breaks, she mends
In the safety net she starts doubting again
