Philosophy Lyrics

Won?t you look up at the skyline
At the mortar block and glass
And check out the reflections in my eyes

You see they always used to be there
Even when this all was grass
And I sang and danced about a high-rise

And you were laughing at my helmet hat
Laughing at my torch

You go ahead, you can laugh all you want
I got my philosophy, keeps my feet on the ground
And I trust it like the ground
And that?s why my philosophy
It keeps me walking when I?m falling down

I see that there is evil
And I know that there is good
And the inbetweens I never understood

Won?t you look at me, I?m crazy?
But I get the job done
Yeah, I?m crazy but I get the job done

And I say, "Go ahead, you can laugh all you want
But I got my philosophy, keeps my feet on the ground
And I trust it like the ground
And that?s why my philosophy
It keeps me walking when I?m falling down"

I pushed you ?cause I loved you guys
I didn?t realize you weren?t having fun

I dragged you up the stairs and I told you to fly
You were flapping your arms, you started to cry
You were too high, oh too high

You may take this all for granted
You take the mortar, block and glass
And you forget the speech that moved the stone

But it?s really not that you can?t see
The forest for the trees
You?ve never been out in the woods alone

So you can laugh all you want to
I got my philosophy
Keeps my feet on the ground
And I love you, you?re my friend
But you got no philosophy
Now it?s time for this song to end
