dance little baby, dance up high,
never mind baby, mother is by;
crow and caper, caper and crow,
there little baby, there you go;
up to the ceiling down to the ground,
backwards and fowards,round and round
dance little baby and mother shall sing
with the merry coral ding ding ding
it's said if you ain't first, you're last,
so I keep going 'til I crash
then wake the morning with a grin
to burn through all that **** again

I never wake up feeling good
but reason why is understood
although I know it brings me pain
i'm not complete if I don't train
but I don't know how to
in a world where
not having money
is just another way to be dead

You know how it goes
you dig yourself into a hole
so deep it just seems to go and go
and keeps on going until
you’re so tired of feeling
worn out and sick of work and ****
you can’t even walk that dog of yours
when it takes six ******’ lawyers
to stick a friggin’shovel in the ground
around this **** town these days
even if all you want is a nice place
to lie down and rest yourself a spell
somewhere between the ****
you know and the **** down below.
Ya know?
your worth is unmeasurable

its value is so high
yet so low

all it takes is
the right person
to determine
how much you’re worth

but
don’t let an unmeasurable soul
measure your worth.

don’t let one with an
unmeasurable worth
determine the value
of yours.
- don’t gift fragile hands with the power over your worth and be surprised of the repercussions.
