Still I Fall

Thinner than a sliver of hope
I ask a sensitive soul
Walking on sunshine:

Which came first
The chicken
Or the egg on my face?

Which came first
Chicken wings
Or eggshells?

Which came first
Chicken fingers
Or chicken tenders?

Which came first
Hot wings
Or cold cuts?

Hot sauce
Or cold turkey?

Which came first
Walking on sunshine
Or walking on eggshells?

The weight of the world
Rests squarely on the shoulders
Of a sensitive soul

Still I rise
Still I fall

Thinner than
A sliver of hope

Still I rise
Still I fall
