"Weak Knees" as written by and Ezra Mordechai Furman....
When a body catch a body comin' through the breeze
And you realize that you're both bodies
And your heart blows away like a carpet of leaves
When you're driving through a tunnel of trees
Wandrin' the sidewalks like two refugees
Oh lord you know I warned you about your weak...
Weak knees. Weak knees.

When a body catch a body fallin' from the sky
And you realize that you're both sky high
It gets quiet and you both can hear the sun as he cries,
"Don't you see me shining down all the time?
You all are sleeping everytime that I rise.
Oh lord but I can't blame you for your weak...
Weak eyes. Weak eyes."

When a body catch a body comin' 'cross the land
And you've made a golden circle like a new wedding band
Then your heart falls away like a needle in descent
When your face is a permanent brand
Stare at the mirror as long as you can stand
Don't you go trying to change things with your weak...
Weak hands. Weak hands.

When you're driving through a tunnel of trees
Wandrin' the subway like Adam and Eve
Oh lord you know I feel it deep inside my weak...
Weak knees. Weak knees.

    General Commentwhen a body catch a body - Catcher In The Rye

    It's about feeling like outsiders, "refugees," wandering, looking for truth. Open your eyes and realize the things no one seems to pay attention to. Eventually you do fall prey to the capitalist way of the world ("your face is a permanent brand"), but we can always come back to those places where we feel the weight of uncertainty and the lightness of existence.
