Took one too many chances with not being it safe
Ended up in the ultimate precarious position
How did the final possible countdown become this moment?
Suspended in the most dangerous of places
Wondered if it was not too late to get out of this demonic fun house
Supposed to be thrilling fun, but more of a nightmare that anything
Count to ten and go from there in terms of the decision
Started to move in an unexpected direction
Unsure what to make of this surprising turn of events
Walking on the thinnest possible tightrope
Hanging between two tallest towers in Abu Dhabi
Reliving a little Vin Diesel stunt via his Fast & Furious films
A little danger never hurt no one; until the tension kicked in
Not internally but from the rope itself
Something that would make high wire artists like Philippe Petit
Sweating .38 caliber bullets as a result of the pure terror
From falling down an endless rabbit hole into a certain demise
Wondered constantly if it'll break in mid-act performance
Turned the performance into a tragedy rather than an epic experience
Walked on continuous eggshells wondering where the last yolk was
Became a sudden bundle of pinched nerves wrapped around
Crucial points in both feet and in the right arm as well
Waited for the inevitable curveball to break this laser pointed focus
Removing the eye from the prize to listen for a phone to ring
When it never does; or the nearby office water cooler gossip
About you that you have heard in a borderline stage whisper
Broke the code of conduct and now paid the price repeatedly
No longer invited to join Rudolph's reindeer games
Ignored for happy hour outings and only called upon when necessary
Time to stop being overly nice to people who hug you publicly
And shove the knife deep into your back when you walk away
Johnny Cash walked a line in his own right
Time to walk one with a much scarier outcome
One wrong step and the finale has arrived
Just a black screen and sayonara, folks.
Taking the next step slower than a tortoise racing a hare
Almost to the end of the wire; finish line in sight
Ready, steady, keep going or else.
Don't look back; just keep moving ahead no matter what.
