lyrics

Ride to the Top (Crommie)

I’m putting myself on the line
Out on a limb
To get the best in life
You have to swim
Water was getting cloudy
At the bottom of the stream
Ever since I learned to walk
I’ve danced on the balance beam

I’m moving up
Taking the ride to the top
Grab the monkey wrench
Pull out all the stops
I’ll turn the golden key
Twist the carving knife
No time for feeling topsy-turvy
In this volatile life

Thought you had me figured out
But I changed again
There’s no sense handing me the bomb
Because I’ll pull the pin
Money stories used to make me snore
Now I love the game
My old friends all agree I’ve changed
Things will never be the same

Since I’m moving up…
