Walk Steady

Walk Steady
- by heine -


Sometimes life just gets you down
Your whole world is turning around

Sometimes when everything is gone
And you just can’t see right from wrong

You’ve had your plans – they all seemed to fulfill
Now, empty hands – and only time to kill

Walk steady, walk on; people can be bad; they can make you feel sad
Walk steady, walk on; keep your head up high, even if you cry

If it ever gets you down
Only empty hands can turn it around

If you feel her love is gone
Let her go and then walk on

You’ve had your plans – they all seemed to fulfill
Now, empty hands – and only time to kill

Walk steady, walk on; people can be bad; they can make you feel sad
Walk steady, walk on; keep your head up high, even if you cry

“No one loves me” (that is what you think)
“I’m not worth It” (that's what you might think)
But all that is not true –
Believe in me: I believe in you!

The sun comes out – she shines for you and me
The sunrays and the gentle wind will dry your tears

Walk steady, walk on; people can be bad; they can make you feel sad
Walk steady, walk on; keep your head up high, no more need to cry

"Walk Steady" - Third Cat

walk, walk steady
in these changing times
something's coming that will blow your mind
so keep your eyes clear
and your feet between the lines
keep walking on
and keep on feeling fine

see the frog in the desert
he stole all our emeralds
he says gold is in the pond
and mustard's in the sewers
but I think that he waves that wand
just for the home viewers

walk, walk steady
in these changing times
something's coming that will blow your mind
so keep your eyes clear
and your feet between the lines
keep walking on
and keep on feeling fine

Walk Steady
by Lichen Throat

You hurry through the downtown streets,
Your briefcase in your hand,
Maneuver through the taxi fleets
And past the hot dog stand.
You hear them talk behind your back,
And though you are no prude,
It’s getting hard not to attack
These dumbass, foul-mouthed dudes.
Walk steady, ’cause each step you take
Will leave them in your dust.
Just use your heels to crush the snakes;
And choke them on their lust.

You exercise along the trail
That runs down by the creek,
But comments from a passing male
Occur most every week.
No need to compliment your tail
Or offer their critique;
These guys ain’t the Chippendales,
So why the need to speak?
Walk steady, ’cause each step you take
Will leave them in your dust.
Just use your heels to crush the snakes;
And choke them on their lust.

You climb up all the marble steps
To your new office door,
Where all the piles of books you schlepped,
Are stacked up on the floor.
It’s time to roam the statehouse halls
And make your presence known.
Expel the old boys from these walls
And hear their dying groans.
Walk steady, ’cause each step you take
Will leave them in your dust.
Just use your heels to crush the snakes;
And choke them on their lust.

Walk Steady, by Vom Vorton

the sirens are howling
the bombs they keep falling
the bunkers are packed
the food is appalling
walk steady
I will walk steady

right out of the city
and into the wasteland
to live off my wits
and trade contrabrand
I will walk steady
I will walk steady

though the ground shakes under my feet
I walk on through murderous heat
though the world has fallen apart
I will try to keep on walking

society crumbled
the skyscrapers tumbled
and under my breath
I quietly mumbled
“walk steady”
and so I walk steady

away from the wreckage
and into the desert
to fear for my life
with every gunshot
walk steady
I will walk steady

though the earth has become a prison
people are turning to cannibalism
though the world has fallen apart
I will try to keep on walking

Walk Steady - Paco del Stinko

How many times have you crossed up above
It's all that you know all that you love
When do you feel most alive
Out in the middle or safe on the side
Are you safe on the side?

Walk steady - Look ahead
Don't look down or you might end up dead
Fly away


Not everyone wants you to make it you know
Your horrific death would be a hell of a show
A strong gust of wind or an encounter with birds
The crowds terrified screams the last things you heard

I slip, lose my grip, It's away and over you go
Time moves so slow...
I see my parents, my lover, my long gone brother
They all smile and wave 'cos they know
As I careen towards blackness I put on a remarkable show


So there you are on the other side now
Both satisfying and disappointing the crowd
Put down the pole now and breathe
You took on the role now you better believe
Be at ease...breathe at ease
Bringin' the stink since 2006.

Walk Steady
Pigfarmer Jr

I
I stare up at the moon
A moon that's waning too soon
Too soon for these tears

You
You would glow with the dawn
A dawn so quick that it's gone
Gone, it's disappeared

I need you here to be my wall
To hold me up so I won't fall

I don't know what it means to be
In love with you when you can't love me
I know I'll never understand
How you could leave when I'm not ready?

Every day I'm still missing you
i even miss the pain we went through
I think it's more than I can withstand
How could you leave when I'm not ready?.
How can I move on when I can't walk steady without you?

I feel like I'm falling without you here
To hold me up, to hold me near
The whole world seems to drift away
As I am falling down

I don't know what it means to be
In love with you when you can't love me
I know I'll never understand
How you could leave when I'm not ready?

Every day I'm still missing you
i even miss the pain we went through
I think it's more than I can withstand
How could you leave when I'm not ready?.
How can I move on when I can't walk steady without you?
Without you

Walk Steady
by miscellaneous owl

If I walk steady down that road
And keep my face turned down
If I pull my silence round my neck
and keep my eyes on the ground

Then maybe I can pass right through the words that stick like burrs onto me
Maybe I can be as light as air

If my clothes were bigger, like a mountain,
Maybe I could transform
Like a caterpillar wrapping up
To be reborn

Dirty pillows, bedroom eyes, I'm tired of my life inside
This body, wish that I could hide away
Sibyl jarred like a firefly, just her voice that's left behind,
saying: Please let me die

Mission Street, coming up the steps from BART, I see them wait for me
Clustered like a pack of wolves along Sixteenth
It's worse though if I change my path, so I just keep
Going like a train along a track
Don't look back
Walk steady

I take the 38 down Geary
And get a window seat
Alone for a little while on my way
To Ocean Beach

Riding off into the Sunset without a thought, like the lucky ones that live invisible and light as air
I just want to pass right through the filthy words that stick onto me
Maybe I can be as light as air

Walk Steady
by Berkeley Social Scene

Birth and death, have yet to meet
Tired flames, embers ‘neath my feet
Dreams alive, with harps and halos
While I wake up to sulfur and volcanoes

The voices tell me what I already know
I try not to listen, but still they flow
A silvery lady, tempting and ready
Gather conviction and walk steady

Unbalanced, afraid on the wire
Farther to fall as you move higher
The net below, a tenuous goal
Falling through to a six deep hole

The voices tell me what I already know
I try not to listen, but still they flow
A silvery lady, tempting and ready
Gather conviction and walk steady

Wild horses run without thinking
Drawing speed from a feral upbringing

Death and birth we understand
The start and end of the same man
Wind blowing through the tall grass
Another shot taken from another glass

The voices tell me what I already know
I try not to listen, but still they flow
A silvery lady, tempting and ready
Gather conviction and walk steady

The voices tell me what I already know
I try not to listen, but still they flow
A silvery lady, tempting and ready
Gather conviction and walk steady

Walk Steady

Music by glennny
Lyrics by Ken and glennny


Verse 1

It is uncertain
Whether I can keep in control
Behind the curtain
The wizard’s not so whimsical

Pre-chorus

Don’t make me angry
You wouldn’t like it when I’m angry

Chorus
I have got to keep my pants from turning purple
I’ve got to keep my ears from spouting steam
I simply need to walk steady
To keep me from turning green

Verse 2
I need to hold the rage inside
Hoping to avoid calamity
If these two worlds collide
It’ll be a catastrophe

Pre-chorus
Chorus


Bridge
This shirt is stretch fabric
But it doesn’t stretch enough
You might have anger issues
I know how that is, it’s rough
You’re untrusting and jaded
This makes me frustrated

Verse 3
For a man of science
My behavior is just embarrassing
I’m losing all of my clients
And all of the required tenacity

Pre-chorus
