A Place in the Sky

Dancing circles in the street
Sorry if I tread upon your feet
Would you please excuse me
There’s some place that I would like to be
But this spinning wheel
It’s all racing, I’m not sure I can’t match your speed

I don’t like the way you lie
I don’t like the way you climb
It’s all pushing and a shoving to find your own place in the sky
If I don’t start this pushing, I won’t be finding mine

With their eye on the prey
Making moves in the broad light of day
They’ll sell their souls with smiles, they’re gonna take you on a ride
But you’re going to find out this time that you’re just much too polite
And their smiles are cold
As they’re chasing rainbows for pots of gold

I don’t like the way they lie
I don’t like the way they climb
It’s all snatching and grabbing to find the gold pot in the sky
If I don’t start this snatching, I won’t be finding mine

All this business, all this rush
It’s an all-consuming, addictive rush
We gotta get ourselves out on the top or we’ll drown
In the hell we made above the ground
All this bullshit, all this fuss
I’m lying through my teeth just to tough me up
You’ve gotta toughen me up
Gotta toughen me up

I don’t like the way I lie
I don’t like the way I climb
I started pushing and shoving to find my own place in the sky
But in the sky, there’s no nice guys
