Falls To Climb

  • I'll take the position
    Assume the missionary part
    You work by committee
    You had me pegged from the start
    I'll be pounce pony
    Phoney maroney
    Pony before the cart
    I'll be pounce pony
    This ceremony
    Only fills my heart

    Who cast the final stone?
    Who threw the crushing blow?
    Someone has to take the fall
    Why not me?

    A punch toy volunteer
    A weakling on its knee
    Is all you want to hear
    And all you want to see
    Romantically, you'd martyr me
    And miss this story's point
    It is my strength, my destiny
    This is the role that I have chosen

    Who cast the final stone?
    Who threw the crushing blow?
    Someone has to take the fall
    Why not me?

    Gentlemen mark your opponents
    Fire into your own ranks
    Pick the weakest as strategic move
    Square off to meet your enemy
    For each and every gathering
    A scapegoat falls to climb
    As I step forward, silently
    Deliberately mine

    Who cast the final stone?
    Who threw the crushing blow?
    Someone has to take the fall
    Why not me? Why not me?
    Had consequence chose differently
    Had fate its ugly head
    My actions make me beautiful
    And dignify the flesh
    Me, I am free, free Writer/s: Peter Buck, Michael Mills, Michael Stipe
