The Sidewalk Shakes-

It's been a slow start this year
and I'm waiting for you to turn ripe
as I pull off this skin
and make good use of the fruit inside.

I need to go
the sidewalk shakes and now I'm gone
it's like I said it always would be
I think this place must want me dead
but I still walk alive.

I recognize my age
that's why I keep questioning my fate
will glasses fix my point of view?
My pessimism is nothing new
So I refuse to break
I'm suffering but I'm awake
The more I think the less I move
I'm crawling now but I'll be walking soon...

I've got no connections
but I'm sure I'll find my way
and if I leave with good intentions
then the conflicts soon will fade

I need to go
the sidewalk shakes and now I'm gone
it's like I said it always would be
I think this place must want me dead
but I still walk alive
