So Much For Pretending

here on the edge

everybody is walking

telling the truth

without doing much talking

I could pick your pockets

while you pick my brain

dogs in the manger

man in the middle

who lit your rocket?

who brought you pain?

take off your clothes

take off for the coast

you can answer the riddle

when you go insane

a piece of the  action

a startled  reaction

I'll pick your pocket

you catch the train
