our livesdrivesnaives
sandal tornmendedtornmendedtormented
torn and mended o o o o ver again
oneday you got to throwit away
i mean, how are long you keep gonna living, man?

you have to run feetnaked naked oh naked

and the night will know when to when do
but perhaps i am no sky and there
is nothingtodo nothing to doooooo is it now?
