I asked the habitual party goer,
Just how high she thought she'd get?
And I asked the Ethereal Girls,
(Ethereal Girls)
If they were floating yet?

And so I asked the light of the day
"What's this rush for Heaven?"
And I saw a bird fly away and I could not ask again

The tabloid tainted actress knows
The myth of higher ground
The thing she got from playin' a nun
She got from sleepin' around

And so I asked the light of the day
"What's this rush for Heaven?"
And I saw a bird fly away and I could not ask again

Do you feelin' the mother [Incomprehensible]
The decaying in my tent?
I wonder whose laughin' at

And I've been running uphill
Panting, punching at the air
Fighting what's been pushing me down
Like I can't see it there

And so I asked the light of the day
"What's this rush for Heaven?"
And I saw a bird fly away and I could not ask again

And I saw all this climbing, climbing
Just as far from Heaven
And I saw a bird fly away and I started climbing again

Whose laughin' at
Do you feelin' the mother [Incomprehensible]
The decaying in my tent?
