from by Color Theory



You caught me walking backward
Counting back from ten
Trying to turn my luck around but failing
And failing again

The trinity was broken
A sacred triangle
Underneath the rungs against a building
I’m building a fall

Walking backward
Under ladders in reverse
Walking backward
Superstition break the curse
Walking backward

This city is a minefield
Duck or hit your head
Working up the energy
For staying in bed

Take me back
To bread and butter days
To simple ways
To words we left unsaid
I’ll never get ahead
Walking backward

Maybe I’m unlucky
Maybe that’s just life
Playing out as karma
As I sharpen the knife
