SINKING SAND

Robin Caudell / Georgia Middleman

I’m too young to retire
Too old to be hired
So what do you do in a gig economy?
It’s like a patchwork quilt
Job to job to pay the bills
where the worker has no autonomy

just when think you’ve set your golden years
a damn pink slip appears

You think
you’re standing on solid ground
and then the earth tilts and sways
and hey
Like my grandma used say
Where there is a will there is a way
So I huddle in my soul
A solid place to stand
Cause all other ground is sinking sand

They send you to school
To learn all the rules
But they never tell you how you can break ‘em

You figure that all out
While you’re living hand to mouth
Between the time you go to sleep and awaken

‘cause that’s the place where you connect
To your spirit and what’s coming next

You think
you’re standing on solid ground
and then the earth tilts and sways
and hey
Like my grandma used say
where there is a will there is a way
So I huddle in my soul
A solid place to stand
Cause all other ground is sinking sand

You think
you’re standing on solid ground
then the earth tilts and sways
and hey
Like my grandma used say
where there is a will there is a way
So huddle in your soul
The only solid place to stand
Cause all other ground is sinking sand
