Philosophy Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Wont you look up at the skyline
At the mortar block and glass
And check out the reflections in my eyes

You see they always used to be there
Even when this all was grass
And I sang and danced about a high-rise

And you were laughing at my helmet hat
Laughing at my torch

You go ahead, you can laugh all you want
I got my philosophy, keeps my feet on the ground
And I trust it like the ground
And thats why my philosophy
It keeps me walking when Im falling down

I see that there is evil
And I know that there is good
And the inbetweens I never understood

Wont you look at me, Im crazy?
But I get the job done
Yeah, Im crazy but I get the job done

And I say, "Go ahead, you can laugh all you want
But I got my philosophy, keeps my feet on the ground
And I trust it like the ground
And thats why my philosophy
It keeps me walking when Im falling down"

I pushed you cause I loved you guys
I didnt realize you werent having fun

I dragged you up the stairs and I told you to fly
You were flapping your arms, you started to cry
You were too high, oh too high

You may take this all for granted
You take the mortar, block and glass
And you forget the speech that moved the stone

But its really not that you cant see
The forest for the trees
Youve never been out in the woods alone

So you can laugh all you want to
I got my philosophy
Keeps my feet on the ground
And I love you, youre my friend
But you got no philosophy
Now its time for this song to end
