Dead Man’s Shoes by James D. Casey IV

I miss your wicked ways
Build it up
Wreck it down

Nothing left
Take my hand

By the river
Dancing alone
Cold with no music

Inside your head
The records play

Pleasing ghosts
Sing their song
Masked faces all around

Shuffle in
Shuffle out

We see the future
Thinking of the past
With Adam and Eve eyes

And you dance
In a dead man’s shoes
