Rosie Oh

Album: Centipede Hz (2012)
  • As I walked across the bridge
    With a backpack cross my shoulder blades
    The Everglades below the wooden cracks

    You had offered up a ride
    So I might not get accosted by
    The watery slide

    But I said no I'd rather not
    Said no I'd rather not step in

    As I left my home I cried
    And a substituted figure tried
    To reconcile the things I'd left behind

    You had opened up the door
    And made a place where I could sit inside
    And fortify

    But I said no I'd rather not
    Said no I'd rather not step in

    I'm on my own
    Now no ones been invested in
    How no one knows what's best for him

    I'm on my own
    When no ones left to light the load
    Then so one goes to lift alone

    I'd like to embrace it all

    Have I made this or is it
    That I've been made? Writer/s: BRIAN ROSS WEITZ, DAVID MICHAEL PORTNER, JOSHUA CALEB DIBB, NOAH BENJAMIN LENNOX
