Lyrics

There is only one way over the lava
and its hard, and it hurts, hot or cold
a test of your mettle
the old metal monkey bars

There's two ways to treat what you said you'd be
to treat it as child's dreams and move on
or prove to the stars your not too calloused or covered in scars
-
Still pining for the stars
Still climbing monkey bars
-

I learned less at my desk than recess
and after three, guess that's my nature
and my lesson was that its more what you do

The forthcoming fortune is mine
ya I fell out of line for a reason
I can't stand still and I still can't stand
what they make you do
-
Still pining for the stars
Still climbing monkey bars
Can't say I'm going nowhere
I'm moving sideways
I'll hold on on my own
or I won't
Just let me fall
-

Hey John, how the hell are you man?
and Jane its been too long
look at all these Doe eyed kids
no I ain't been married
have no career to speak of
I've got no children, although that's nice for you
you see I've seen the real world and playground coincide
you'll understand when I reach the other side

-

Five elements and aether is the surest
my sixth sense has shown me the truth
that there's seven layers to both heaven and hell
that's why when I've ate sand I climbed up again

Everything inside has told me
stay on the outside
and monkey forward until you reach the other side
-
Still pining for the stars
Still climbing monkey bars
Can't say I'm going nowhere
I'm moving sideways
I'll hold on on my own
or I won't
Just let me fall
let me fall
