Get Down

from Head Full by Short Hand



With a shield of tears
I looked everywhere for an autograph
Was caught peering
Looking in seeing if you were anywhere around

We all have a word we can't hear
So we squinted at the chair
Cock your head and wince some
And something strange seems paralyzed

I know you get down
And you know that I get down
But please don't get down on me
And we all get down
We all get down
But please don't get down on me

If if was verb in the air
I was iffing everywhere
I felt for the latch
Felt something opening
Help something turning slick and black

There is no excuse for this hurt
And there is no way to reverse it
It's this jerk in my body
It's this fog in my very short laugh
