  • All these kinds of places
    Make it seem like it's been ages
    Tomorrow's sun with buildings scrape the sky
    I love this country dearly
    I can feel the lighter clearly
    But never thought I'd be alone to try

    Once I was outside Penn Station
    Selling red and white carnations
    You were still alone
    My wife and I
    Before we marry, save my money
    Brought my dear wife over
    Now I want to bring my family state side

    But off the boat they stayed a while
    Then scatter cross the course
    Once a year I'll see them for a week or so at most
    I took a walk

    Take a walk, take a walk, take a walk
    Take a walk, oh-oh-oh
    Take a walk, oh-oh-oh
    I take a walk
    Take a walk, take a walk, take a walk
    Take a walk, take a walk, take a walk

    Practice isn't perfect
    With the market cuts and loss
    I remind myself that times could be much worse
    My wife won't ask me questions
    And there's not so much to ask
    And she'll never flaunt around an empty purse

    Once my mother-in-law came
    Just to stay a couple nights
    Then decided she would stay the rest of her life
    I watch my little children, play some board game in the kitchen
    And I sit and pray they never feel my strife

    But then my partner called to say the pension funds were gone
    He made some bad investments
    Now the counts are overdrawn

    I took a walk
    Take a walk, take a walk, take a walk
    Take a walk, oh-oh-oh
    Take a walk, oh-oh-oh
    I took a walk
    Take a walk, take a walk, take a walk
    Take a walk, take a walk, take a walk

    Honey it's your son I think I borrowed just to much
    We had taxes we had bills
    We had a lifestyle to front
    And tonight I swear I'll come home
    And we'll make love like we're young
    And tomorrow you'll cook dinner
    For the neighbors and the kids
    We could rent the Wart of socialists
    And all their ten taxes
    You'll see I am no criminal
    I'm down on both bad knees
    I'm just too much a coward
    To admit when I'm in need

    I took a walk
    Take a walk, take a walk, take a walk
    Take a walk, oh-oh-oh
    Take a walk, oh-oh-oh
    I took a walk
    Take a walk, take a walk, take a walk
    Take a walk, take a walk, take a walk
    I took a walk
    Take a walk, take a walk, take a walk
    Take a walk, take a walk, take a walk
    I took a walk
    Take a walk, take a walk, take a walk
    Take a walk, take a walk, take a walk Writer/s: MICHAEL ANGELAKOS

  • Brayden from Texas“Capitalism is bad, men are bad, but you know, I’m not trying to be political, I dislike politics” lmao

    This man is Schrödinger’s liberal

    That’s not even an insult considering my political opinion but I just find that hilarious

    Just

    “You know, I have political opinions I’ll showcase hitherto I can be disregarded for being political.”
