lyrics

Well, I've been broke so many times
And that don't include today
but no matter how dirt poor I feel
I've got no room to say

Cause I was born into the kind of wealth
you just dont find anywhere
conscience, liberty, the lifelong pursuit
the freedom to grow my hair

Now when it comes to all that we possess
Man, we've got it good
But that does not lead to happiness
and I doubt it ever would

And yet we're climbing all over each other
Trying to get up on that hill
And if we don't happen to make it
somebody will.

Some like to make up excuses
say its all relative
but i don't know what the use is
cause that aint no way to live

And yet we're climbing all over each other
Trying to get up on that hill
And if we don't happen to make it
somebody will.

There are times I will admit
I was chasing all of it
worked my fingers to the bone
pressed my nose against the stone
spent my afternoons alone
in a prison all my own

Kids these days and the games they play
Make no sense. You see,
They all want to be king of the mountain
And that's quite all right with me.

And yet we're climbing all over each other
Trying to get up on that hill
And if we don't happen to make it
somebody will.
