    Lyrics

    I asked the habitual partygoer just how high she thought she'd get,
    And I asked the ethereal girls if they were floating yet

    And so I asked the light of the day, what's this rush for heaven,
    Then 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 playing a nun she got from sleeping around.

    And so I asked the light of the day, what's this rush for heaven,
    Then I saw a bird fly away, and I could not ask again.

    And I've been running uphill, panting, punching at the air,
    Fighting what's been pushing me down, as if it's really there.

    And so I asked the light of the day, what's this rush for heaven,
    Then I saw a bird fly away, and I could not ask again.

    And I saw all this climbing, climbing, just as far from heaven,
    Then I saw a bird fly away, and I started climbing again.
