Where the Old Folk Go

by Flloyd with 2 Ells

This is me, having a bit of a dig at myself - while just telling it as it is. I've rarely stayed in one place for more than 5 years at a time, since I was a small child. The image is the view from my first Liverpool window, and pretty well sums up how I live.


I don’t know where to go
Whether I’m in or out of the flow
All I know is I don’t want to go
Where the Old Folk Go.
Maybe I’m sad. Maybe I’m mad
Maybe I’ve lost the right to be bad.
Every day is a dumb replay
Of things I used to know.

There’s no reason I can find
For going round in circles inside my mind.
Outside the window life goes on
Frantic, casual, shouted and sung
People are cruel. People are kind
Sometimes reasons result in rhymes.

And I still don’t know why I go
Onwards and backwards over and over
Getting dumped in the Undertow
Coming up for air--ever so slowly.

Should I go – where? I don’t know, there
Has to be some place I’ll never outgrow
Maybe it’s nearby, maybe in time I’ll
Understand why it’s so
That I’ll never compliantly go
Where the Old Folk Go.
