The Cable of Last Resort

This is the cable of last resort.
This is the word that will set itself straight.
This is the axe of motion and strife.
This is the blow that will reboot your life.
This is the ring. Was it tossed too late?
This is the cable of last resort.

This is how to tie a shoe.
No, this is the way. Try harder next time.
This is a matter of life and death.
This is the cable that snaps out your breath.
Be careful. Put your foot in. You'll swing just fine.
This is how to tie a shoe.

Broken and crippled, that's how it all seems.
Like magic you think things might get going again!
But rock in the corner. But ice in the shadow.
Footsteps quicken like jumps in the snow.
This is the cable that's graced you again though
broken and crippled, that's how it all seems.
