The Way Back Down

November 13, 2017

 

Oh they tell me if free, free to fall to my knees
Free to pray to their gods and to brutes
Throw my towels and my joys in 
And pick out my poison 
After all I've got nothing to lose

 

Oh the boys climbed put to the mountain top 
To see if their world was round 
But when they got there
Oh they saw it was square 
So they climbed their way back down

 

Oh they tell me I'm free
To succumb to their greed
To revere all the power they stole 
Send the stones you employ in
And pick out their poison 
For fear that the stones have a soul

 

Oh the boys climbed up to the mountain top 
To see if their world was rich
But when they got there 
Oh they saw it was bare
And were pushed from the high mountain cliffs

 

They tell me I'm free
Free to slave for degrees 
And they threaten with strife and with debt
Send the boys and the girls in 
And feed them their poison
So they can sit through the drone of regret

 

Oh the boys climbed up to the mountain top 
To see if their world was wise
When they got there they saw
All the wisdom was flawed
And they climbed down a mountain of lies

 

Oh they tell me I'm free
Free to fall to my knees
To surrender but not free to think
Try to kill and destroy
Try and pick out my poison 
You can try but you can't make me drink

 

Oh the boys climbed up to the mountain top
To see what was left to be found 
When they got to the top
They found innocence lost 
So they climbed the way back down
