You want me to come down to your level you know that's pretty low
That looks like I will soon be there cause I don't have very far to go
You turn my feet in your direction and I follow everywhere
So when I reach the bottom you'd better be there
I'm going down the ladder one step at a time
I'm going down the ladder that I'll never climb
You keep a saying come on down like a fool I ask you where
So when I reach the bottom you'd better be there
[ steel ]
The road we're on is a going down the hill and I'm turning where you turn
You're teaching me your way of life and it didn't take me very long to learn
I'll do anything you want me to I've got to where I don't care
But when I reach the bottom you'd better be there
I'm going down the ladder...
So when I reach the bottom you'd better be there
