I'm standing on the precipice of a runaway train

to:

I'm standing on the precipice of a runaway train\\
I was blowing my own hot and cold trumpet\\
Cause it's a different kettle of ball games\\
When you're standing on the precipice of a runaway train\\
Now I'm hoist on my own line and sinker\\
Since I opened up a whole bag of cats\\
I put my nose out of joint on the grindstone\\
(I don't know why I did that)\\
You were a wolf at the door in sheep's clothing\\
You were my Achilles' ace in the heel\\
Don't want to make a mountain out of Mohammed\\
That's just the way that I feel\\
And now I got a snowball's chance in a handcart\\
It's all in a different vein\\
I'm standing on the precipice of a runaway train\\
I took the bull by the china shop\\
I won't do that again\\
Now
I'm standing on the precipice of a runaway train

-->I'm caught between the devil and a hard place\\
Between the fire and the deep blue sea\\
Between a rock and the frying pan\\
What a terrible place to be\\
Cause I kicked two birds with one bucket\\
Bit off more bullets than I could chew\\
I burned my bridges at both ends\\
And that's a pretty dumb thing to do\\
Now I've got a snowball's chance in a handcart\\
I hope you let me explain\\
I'm standing on the precipice of a runaway train

-->"I once had a boss who said, 'You can't have your cake and eat it, so you have to step up to the plate and face the music.' It was in that moment I knew I had to resign before somebody got badly hurt by a pencil."
