Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

There's a perception those in this occupation have it all. Not the ones that i knew.
Lifestyle choices, fraught with peril
From every direction
A knock at the door
A click on the phone
Paranoia's wise friend

Chasing dreams...darkened streets
Shaky ground below his feet
Friend to all, close to none
"Never give it away for free!!"

Knowing not to get attached
Temporary...a shadow's cloak
A pot of gold awaits our tardy friend
Take his promises with a pinch of salt

Looking through bars to see who cares
Glamour has lost it's pretty shine
Concrete and steel are his only friends
Getting caught was his only crime
