could have walked away, but I stayed here on the pavement
did I make the right decision?
she had my hair cut in a deadlock and a blade between her fingers--
and I gasped at the incision

found the tallest tree to put myself in
by the river, but I've got to get down somehow
there are branches to the bottom, gray-green water thick with shiver
but I've got to get down somehow

the sun sunk and I slithered (from my high horse)
but the swing-sets are like spiders in the sand
found another way to make the whole world rush beneath me
held the trickled streetlight's hand

found the thickest air that I could swim through in the tree tops
but I've got to get down somehow
kicking myself up and glowing, and just waiting until the ground drops

but I've got to get down somehow
