Put your ladder down…
Don’t be concerned
It’s just the way that gravity works round here
All slowly rising, falling patiently
Feel no
Feel no fear
Cirrus caress you
Cumulus kiss you
Raindrops of crystal
Whisper we’ll miss you
But go… Let go
Always and always and always ascending
The opening line leaves an uncertain ending
Always and always and always ascending
The chords seem to pause, but ah…
Never going to resolve
Talk to me
Wake me up
Waking up dry
Waking up dusty
Feeling remorse
Feeling thirsty
Bring me a cup
Bring me water

We can ascend
From this arrangement
We can see fate
As entertainment
Bring me a cup
Bring me water

Always and always and always ascending
The Shepard misleads so you think you’re transcending
Always and always and always ascending
Pause the progression, but ah…
Never going to resolve
