HI RISE

I’m tired of reaching out and touching wood
Assassinations of my friends just aren’t enough
Still I never thought of giving up
‘cause every time I hear your sound my hair stands up
I won’t let you turn me into something that I am not
Or I don’t want to be

The eyes in the hi – rise are twinkling at me
And the rain made the road glow grey
The eyes in the hi – rise are twinkling at me
And the world looks different today

I’m tired of reaching out and touching wood
When I’m scared the road might walk a little rough
And I wish that I could make my own luck
‘cause I’m not hard enough to walk it by myself
And I’m not hard enough to wait on the shelf
And wonder what could be

The eyes in the hi – rise are twinkling at me
And the rain made the road glow grey
The eyes in the hi – rise are twinkling at me
And the world looks different today

I’m flying high up above those tiny houses
I cast my memory back to where the river started from
And I hate to burst your bubble but I know what you are thinking
Every word you say is stolen from somewhere else
And your prison is a token of arrogance
That you don’t owe me

The eyes in the hi – rise are twinkling at me
And the rain made the road glow grey
The eyes in the hi – rise are twinkling at me
And the world looks different today

Because the world looks beautiful today
