The Nerve

from Kickstand by Gimme My Bike



The Nerve

written by: Jeff Kranz

nothing is pure
except the nerve
she changed my life
she watched me squirm

she said these streets are yours
say goodbye, go and haunt them

my toes are cold
they feed my herd
when i stumble down
when i breathe the dirt

I am ashamed
I wish I was stronger

nothing is pure
except the nerve
can i clear the land
can i pick the burr

can i raise myself
all alone

I was remembering things
i still had
I was watering plants
i was missing my dad

I was looking for a reason
to extend life as we know it

nothing is pure
except the nerve
can i use it well
can i throw the curve

can i be myself
if entertainment is provided?
