“On Your Way Down”

Sunrise, sunset
Since the beginning it hasn’t changed yet
People fly high, begin to lose sight
But you can’t see very clearly when you’re in flight

It’s high time that you found
The same people that you misuse on your way up
You might meet up on your way down

Vintage wines from the year ’62
It’s your thing, it’s your thing, it pleases you
Got to frown when you cross town
You think it’s an honor just to have you around

It’s high time that you found
The same dudes you misuse on your way up
You might meet up on your way down

You think the sun rise and sets for you
But the same sun rises, sets and shines on the poor folks too
I don’t mind you turning ’round
I myself would even like a little higher ground

It’s high time that you found
The same people that you walk on on your way up
You might meet up on your way down
