They Can’t Catch You Unless You Let Go

He’d been hanging on his trapeze

For so damn long,

The sky and the earth

Were both long gone.

Sure, he saw the uprights

That made his trapeze

But he couldn’t see his feet

Head down in the breeze.

He had no legs.

None he could stand on.

Swinging through the midnight air

Smile looks like a frown.

Buddy’s upside down.

Cause no one cheers

Until there’s fears

Buddy will hit the ground

Not running…

The rest will be, uh, less understandable...
