Up on the Wall (Lyrics: Rob Lutes)

I will drink like a demon so I’ll bounce like a ball
I want to get up on the wall
I will scale shaky ladders, I will bleed and I will brawl
I want to get up on the wall

Just to see how the view is out across those hills
Where the shadows roll under the clouds
There’s a vast new horizon that I aim to fill
Once I get free from the crowd

So i cling to the mortar in a slow desperate crawl
I want to be up on the wall
I would steal the wings of angels and I’d take the devil’s call
I want to get up on the wall

If my head could be quiet I could leave this parade
But I can’t quite step out of the line
There’s a deep voice that’s calling me out of the shade
Like a heartbeat under the whine

Well you build it and you climb it and you climb it ’til you fall
I want to get up on the wall
Do you even remember, do you even recall
Why you want to get up on the wall

Just to see how the view is out across those hills
Pull your mind out of the clouds
There’s a vast new horizon that you aim to fill
If you can just get yourself out of the crowd
