"Shakedown" as written by and Joel Nathan/mcanulty Mcanulty....
The question arrives in your head.
A moment of doubt can be heavy as lead.
The feeling grabs hold in the back of your throat.
Makes you wonder if you should stay or go.

Touch the sky, you gotta give it a try,
You can't let them break you.

You got a feeling it's a shakedown, you better get your gun,
'cause you're on the run again.
It's just a system failure breakdown, what you gonna do,
When the walls come crashing down on you.

All during the ride you just stare at your hands,
They don't stop shaking though you make the command.
Visions of fear claw at your mind,
The motion is stopping so you know it's time to...

Touch the sky, you know it's do or die,
You can't let them break you.

You got a feeling it's a shakedown, you better get your gun,
'cause you're on the run again.
It's just a system failure breakdown, what you gonna do,
When the walls come crashing down on you.
