No one knows where the ladder goes You're gonna lose what you love the most You're not alone in anything You're not unique in dying I feel a strange every now and then Fall asleep reading science fiction I wanna fly in your silver ship, but My momma hang and my sister, sit Its on now, the days are long now The ups and the sun down In the twisting morn If I gotta go first I'll do it on my terms I'm tired of traitors Always changing sides They were friends of mine
Don't hang around as the promise breaks Or you'll be there when I'm the next one's made Kiss the feet of a sarlatan Some imagine freedom All the rest is predictable Trying your hardest to melt the snow Tie the knots to concentrate Keep on pulling that rope will break
We'll welcome the new age Covered in war paint Lights from the jungle till dusk sky See now the stars burst Looks just like a blood orange Don't it just make you wanna cry Precious friend of mine
Will I know when it's finally time This whole life of hallucination You're not alone in anything You're not alone in trying to be
