Influences for “Edge of Life”.

I think this one may be the flip side of “Beauty and Destruction”.  I am definitely attracted to people who live on the edge, somewhat recklessly and carelessly. I think a lot of us are.  It seems like life may be more “intense” where they are.  This song is about a woman who lives that way and to whom I would be more than willing to surrender…  As the chorus says, it is about dancing on the edge of life, and flirting with our final fall.  What a glamorous thing to do.  The music here is meant to be somewhat “lighter”.  The verse has an easy groove, with a dance-type drum track.  Not sure what artist truly influenced me on this, but it definitely more Depeche Mode than Reznor singing Head like a Hole.
