Take Loud Steps

When steps are heard

Looks are exchanged

And head bowed

Tears won't help now

So they'll take the hits in silence

And spare a smile only for the other


When young, learn well

Those who walk hardest

Hit hardest as well

Those who walk softest

Can run the fastest

Though the faster you run

The more it hurts to get caught


In the home, someone walks harder

But leave the home

And you know

How to walk harder then them all

They don't know and you do

And that makes you better doesn't it?

Walk hard and hit hard

And maybe it'll be okay
