LYRICS: “Edge of the World” by G.T. Thomas

At the edge of the world
Comes an alkaline voice
Speaks in pestering swirls
Gives unwelcome advice.
It can’t be stopped– it’s an avalanche.

At the edge of the world
Where my elbows are grazed
There’s a grimace revealed
And an eyebrow is raised.
It can’t be stopped– it’s a landslide.

Sliding down a darkening path
I’m doing the math
Cutting it close, right on the nose.
Getting myself out of your way
I call it a day.
I won’t take your bait, you got there too late.

How about we step back from the edge of the world?

At the edge of the world
Which I tend to avoid
Stands a lukewarm face
Always slightly annoyed

She can’t be stopped– from her avalanche.

At the edge of the world
Where we sometimes must meet
Kiss kiss kiss from the one
Who you cannot not greet

It can’t be stopped– I am riding the wave.

Waving from a mountainy high
A light in my eye
Places to be, people to see.
I’ll be on my way out the doors
Settling scores.
You if you must, eating my dust.

How about we step back from the edge of the world?
