The Walkway On The Way To Work (Beatnik Turtle Music)

Lyrics:

There's a walkway on the way to work
That I know is gonna collapse
One day I won't make it to work
Cuz I know it's gonna collapse

And I know there's nothing I can do
It's the shortest way I've got to work
And I could take the long way there
But that would make me late for work

There's a friend who refuses to take
The walkway to work
He's convinced that the bridge will break
One day as he walks to work

And he knows there's something he can do
Cuz he takes the street north of it
And he leaves earlier than me
So he has the time to get to work

So he takes the long way
While I take the short way
Yes, he takes the long way
While I take the short way
The walkway
That one day
Will collapse

There's a walkway on the way to work
That I know is gonna collapse
One day I won't make it to work
Cuz I know it's gonna collapse

And I know there's nothing I can do
It's the shortest way I've got to work
And I could take the long way there
But that would make me late for work

So he takes the long way
While I take the short way
Yes, he takes the long way
While I take the short way
The walkway
That one day
Will collapse

Song Notes:

Jason and Tom work for the same company and take similar paths to work. But NOT the same paths. There's a walkway nearby which happens to be on both their routes to the office, but it's a perfect example of crumbling and neglected city infrastructure. For some reason Jason tempts fate and takes the walkway each day. Tom, however, refuses to and chooses to leave earlier for work so he can take the safer route.

You can see the walkway for yourself at Google Maps. The walkway runs along Hubbard avenue and crosses Rush street in the image. And if you check out the Google Street View, and look up at the walkway, well, you'll see what we're talking about! If you don't hear from Jason one of these days, you'll know why.
