Lyrics‎ > ‎

Walking On The Wall


I'm getting up, reaching the high wire,
Look at the star-spangled flyer,
I'm gonna fly.
I'm revving up, I'm ready to take it,
Driving my nightlife Mercedes,
Never gonna die.

I'm gonna walk the tightrope, satiate my ego,
A driven high-achiever reaching for the sky.
Then knocking stars from space I'll validate my credo.

Late at night,
I went walking with the music in my head.
I held on tight,
To a ladder suspended by the thinnest thread.
I was walking the lines like a circus lion,
Spinning around like madness, climbing for a fall.
I was walking on the wall.

Dangerous,
Held between success and black calamity, I was
Dangerous,
Pockets full of cheap romance and poetry.
With my feet in the air, head on the ground, confusion.
Social climbing acrobat, slipping in creosote.
I was walking on the wall.

And while I was treading the dusty skyline in my jazz shoes,
A muted city hung in the air, it was bad news.
I was a fly upon the walls of highrise beehives!

Funny Street,
I could never see the paving stones beneath my feet.
Bitter-sweet,
Meeting freaks and staring at my own reflection in their eyes.
A trail of failure beneath the high walls.
Frantic aerial dancer, dancing for a fall.
I was walking on the wall.

Prolific city, philosophic lies, ladders like scars.
Everyone stretching their own tightropes in the sky,
Walking the wall like infant children.
