Gravel in my teeth, bended knee again. But stars are beautiful when the world slows, ahh here we are wherever the hell that is. If I had something to give you Id stay a while. My pockets are empty and my faith has settled below the floor where everything else finds its place.  Nobody said it was easy. Grit under my nails I’ve worked for a ladder and got a slide. My time is worthless, my blood is worthless, my heart is quivering like a calf on the slaughter floor. White knuckle the days, the same, the same. Makes the mind spin. Oh don’t be angry its just the way its always been, a pound of flesh for a brand new five dollar bill. You could be better, fitter, smarter, get your shit together. Its just not good enough.  Smile, hope, do it again, do it again, do it again. Promises made to God, broken before they leave my lips. Why cant you trust. Dog on a chain, try to believe someone’s got the key. Don’t whine too much He’s coming for me. Take a pill, try to sleep, try to try, do it again. Just do it again.
