lyrics

i don't know my limits
but this time you've gone too far
you put me back down in it
but i won't give up my life for you, not that easily
now i think i'm finished, i say the work is through
and all respect diminished
i've nothing left to learn this way
and no need to stay

do you work for understanding
or do you crawl for wealth ?
wait on your next instructions ?
but do you remember yourself ?

i know how to be forgotten when i'm blown by the working wind
hand over hand back up the ladder
the goal is gone, the goal is gone
hand over hand back up the ladder
the goal is gone, the goal is gone

friends and i in prison - too scared to make a sound
no sooner have we risen than we're back down, backed down
something blocks my vision
with my hands bound i may never be found

do you work for understanding
or do you crawl for wealth ?
wait on your next instructions ?
but do you remember yourself ?

i know how to be forgotten when i'm blown by the working wind
hand over hand back up the ladder
the goal is gone, the goal is gone
hand over hand back up the ladder
the goal is gone, the goal is gone

i'm just describing the condition - this is no nightmare plan
do we all bow down in submission to the money-gods
in this land ?

but i know how to be forgotten when i'm blow by the working wind
hand over hand back up the ladder
the goal is gone, the goal is gone
and they said we were both mistaken
for thinking time was our only friend
but i won't let you down when i'm right there
until the bitter end
until the bitter end
