if you walk away i’ll walk away
first tell me which road you will take,
i don’t want to risk our paths crossing someday
so you walk that way i walk this way

and the future hangs over our heads
and it moves with each current event
until it falls all around like a cold steady rain
just stay in when it’s lookin’ this way

and the moon’s layin’ low in the sky
forcin’ everything metal to shine
and the sidewalk holds diamonds like a jewelry store case
they argue walk this way, no walk this way

and laura’s asleep on my bed
as i’m leaving she wakes up and says
i dreamed you were carried away on the crest of a wave
baby don’t go uh… come

and there’s kids playin’ guns in the streets
one’s pointin’ his tree-branch at me
so i put my hands up and say “enough is enough
if you walk away, i’ll walk awayâ€?
and he shot me dead

i found a liquid cure
for my landlocked blues
they will pass away like a slow parade
it’s leavin’ but i don’t know how soon

and the world’s got me dizzy again
you’d think after twenty-two years i’d be used to the spin
and it only feels worse when i stay in one place
so i am always pacin’ or walkin’ away

and i’m drinkin’ the ink from my pen
and i’m balancin’ history book up on my head
and it all boils down to one quotable phrase
“if you love something, give it awayâ€?

a good woman would pick you apart
a box full of suggestions for a possible heart
and you might be offended, you might be afraid
but don’t walk away, don’t walk away

we made love on the livin’ room floor
with the noise in the background from a televised war
and in that deafening pleasure i thought i heard someone say
“if we walk away, they’ll walk awayâ€?

though greed is a bottomless pit
an our freedom’s a joke we’re just taking a piss
and the whole world must watch the sad comic display
if you’re still free start running away
cuz we’re comin’ for ya
gonna root ‘em out

i’ve grown tired of holdin’ this pose
i feel more like a stranger each time I come home
i’m makin’ a deal with the devil’s of fame
sayin’ “let me walk away…pleaseâ€?

you’ll be free child once you have died
from the shackles of language and measurable time
and then we can trade places
play musical grace
tellin’ walk away, walk away

so i’m up at dawn
puttin’ on my shoes
i just wanna make
a clean mistake
i’m leavin’ but i don’t know where to
no I’m leaving but i don’t know where to
