Ladder for the People

lyrics

Yes, life was sweet for the king
til he finally took a peek at his enemy.

“Look through the peephole
All I see is ropes and swings
Holding these people
clinging to their hopeless schemes.”

Yes, life was peachy for the king
But the light in the woods brought him to his knees.

“Look through the keyhole,
all I see is Saturn’s rings...
circling the people...
they’ll crown you with a clever life, you better get it right.”

The left kind of people are the right kind of people
with the right kind of people jumping through the loopholes.
But everybody wants to be a ladder for the people
So they keep a broken ladder by the rooftop door.

“Look through the keyhole
All I see is tricks and flames
Warning these people,
Running with their hopes and dreams.”
(everybody's running with their dreams)

Yeah, the left kind of people are the right kind of people
With the right kind of people jumping through the loopholes
But everybody wants to be a ladder for the people
So they’re leaving all their wishes on the basement floor.

Oooh...

Circling, all he sees is bubbling
as we pour the wine, it’s nothing but a remedy
for the one who climbs the anchor.
Ahhhhh...ahhhh....

Yes, life was sweet for the king
'til he finally took a peek at his legacy.

The left kind of people are the right kind of people
with the right kind of people jumping through the loopholes.
But everybody wants to be a ladder for the people
so they keep a broken ladder by the rooftop door.

The left kind of people are the right kind of people
with the right kind of people jumping through the loopholes.
But everybody wants to be a ladder for the people
So they’re leaving all their wishes on the basement floor.
