You're constantly defining what's left
A half-empty bottle of beer
Your misses, match-ups
And now here [unverified]

A weight lifted, a weight on the next [unverified]
Some days you don't know why
And high a-bove it's all clear
It's a long way down

Last minute shakedown
Last minute shakedown

Pieces break apart, rearrange
To make focus clear
Out of chaos comes order
And back again

The truth is plain but not seen
Broken out by weathered thoughts
Lifted up, leveled off
And carried down

Last minute shakedown
Last minute shakedown

It's not easy to change
Not losing this thirst [unverified]
It's not easy to change
Not losing this thirst

Some days it's a bull to drive
Some days it's a walking dream
Some days like gravity dropping
Some days it pulls you down

Last minute shakedown
Last minute shakedown

Some days it's a bull to drive
Some days it's a walking dream
Some days like gravity dropping
Some days it pulls you down
