Verse 1 (0:39)
All the stories, have been told, of kings and days of old, but there's no England now 
(There's no England now).
All the wars that were won or lost, somehow don't seem to matter very much anymore.
All the lies we were told (all the lies we were told), all the lives of the people 
running round, their castles have burned.
Now I see change, but inside, we're the same, as we ever were.

Chorus 1 (1:23)
Living on a thin line, ooooh, tell me now, what are we supposed to do?
Living on a thin line, living on a thin line, ooooh, tell me now, what are we supposed 
to do?
Living on a thin line, living on a thin line, living this way, each days a dream, what 
am I, what are we supposed to do?
Living on a thin line, living on a thin line, ooooh, tell me now, what are we supposed 
to do?

Verse 2 (2:07)
Now another century nearly gone, gone
What are we gonna leave for the young?
What we couldn't do, what we wouldn't do, It's a crime, but does it matter?
Does it matter much, does it matter much to you? Does it ever really matter? Yes, it 
really, really matters.

Chorus 2 (2:31)
Living on a thin line, living on a thin line, ooooh, tell me now, what are we supposed 
to do?
Living on a thin line, living on a thin line, ooooh, tell me now, what are we supposed 
to do?

Verse 3 (2:52)
Then another leader says, break their hearts and break some heads, is there nothing we 
can say or do?
Blame the future on the past, always lost in bloody guts, and when they're gone, it's me 
and you.

Chorus 3 (3:16)
Living on a thin line, ooooh, tell me now, what are we supposed to do?
Living on a thin line, living on a thin line, ooooh, tell me now, what are we supposed 
to do?
Living on a thin line, ooooh.

About the artist behind Living On A Thin Line Tab:

The Kinks were an English pop/rock group formed in 1963, and categorised as a British Invasion band, along with the other members of the so-called Big Four (The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Who). Despite being less commercially successful than these three contemporaries, mostly because of a four-year ban from the United States in the mid-to-late 1960s, the Kinks are cited among them as one of the most important and influential rock bands of all time and have 12 top 40 hits in America.[1]

The band's early hard-driving singles set a standard in the mid-1960s for rock and roll, while albums such as Face to Face,[2] Something Else, The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society, Arthur and Muswell Hillbillies are highly regarded by fans, critics, and peers, and are considered amongst the most influential recordings of the era.[3]
