I walk the line walk the line

I walk the line between life and death
This apple's rotten, rotten to the core
Get up, get up, off your knees
Get down, get down, on your knees!
I walk the line
I walk the line
I walk the line
Between life and death
My business is a little ninjitsu
I trust so much I don't walk I merely stagger!
No you wouldn't accept & I don't blame you
No I don't blame ya!
I walk the line
I walk the line
I walk the line
I walk the line
Between life and death
My rent is 69 a day
I can't stand people
You know that's the price you pay
Is life all in vain?
Starts off in my arm
Opens up my brain
I'm already in the gutter -
Next stop is the grave!
I walk the line
I walk the line
I walk the line
I walk the line
Between life and death
Live fast, die old
Live fast, die older
I walk the line
Death
I walk the line
I walk the line
I walk the line
I walk the line
Between life and death
While others have been thinking about it - I've been to hell and back
I walk the line
I walk the line
I walk the line
I walk the line
Between pain and torture

This is the kind of thing that could make a person crazy!
Welcome to Neo. ~ Geezer.

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?

I take this to be a performance piece best read out at pace with vitriol, in a spittle flecked manner.
more lyrical than poetic? (no bad thing there then)
It has a hook.
