Edge Walking – part 1 of …

Edge Walking

Part 1 of…

Waking to another day, already on the knife
Always at the ready, keep staying honed
Lookin’ round, it all appears the same as yesterday
Keep on watchin’, be sure there’s no new scream scene

In to the rising sun, trudging tired from restless nights
No rest for the wicked, could be me by last check
Getting on, moving along, under too heavy load
Time to rest, time to reflect, not happening in this zoo

How to find some freedom
Each day more boredom
Every night more tiresome
Dawn breaks with no attraction

Going down a dirty path, past cinder block cages
Eerie rusted slats cutting off the inner light
Open doors letting out inviting sounds
From within comes promise of riding wild

Thanks no, wanna die at it not from it
Hands in pockets, staying quiet, moving this ship on
Each to their own and I’m more than good alone
Killed another one, tomorrow waits round the corner

Night is getting darker and deeper
It’s time to hit my own concrete sleeper
Find something tomorrow happier
Eventually it’ll be one that’s a keeper
