Veins pumping blood

While my heart keeps the beat

Put on my shoes

Pick up my feet

Place each one upon the street

Pick them up

Put them down

Then repeat

Soon I'm walking

Upon the earth

Atop this man-made layer

Of cold concrete

Continuing 'til I stop

Where the earth 

And water meet

Veins pumping blood

As my heart pounds the beat

Continuing 'til it stops

'Til it loses the beat

'Til the man above decides

That my heartsong is complete
