Cement Sneakers
Written and composed by G’Ra Asim
Additional lyrics by Chris Craver

Add it up, count it down
And find that I’m nonplussed
Maybe this time around
Is make or break or bust
And in this part of town
There’s no one I can trust
Because you’re nowhere to be found
There’s just the memory of us

If this is farewell
Then what -pray tell-
Did you expect to gain?
Because all of your sins
Are means to your ends
When fair-weather friends
Are fair game

I won’t sink or swim
As according to your whims
When this chorus starts to shore us
We’ll be beached on bitter ends
My friend
I guess it all depends
If this horoscope’s not for us
Hope I never see your face again

I know that you thought
I wouldn’t let you go this time
You’ve had no such luck
Steadying your slow decline
