from up here

from up here
lights shine like grounded stars
from up here
people bustle around like ants

air is rare up here
the view is good, the future is looking bright
thanks to the grants

from up here
it’s a long way back to street level
from up here
it’s easy to see what’s right

air is rare up here
thanks to the grants
the view is good, the future is looking bright

i’ve seen my share of down and out
the devil’s kept me busy
and he will, in the night
but right now everything looks easy from up here
no cross no crown
and like i always did i’ll go on taking my chances

air is rare up here
thanks to the grants
the view is good, the future is looking bright
