It's been a long, long fall
With nothing to intervene
When gravity does it's thing
We start wondering what it's for

Stuck in a cold dark basement
Surely expected more
But all you can see these days
Is four walls and a floor

Come up here
We're making our way
To the upside
We're gonna stay on
The upside
We trade our troubles
For a room with a view
Come up here
We're making our way
To the upside
A brand new day on
The upside
The future's brighter than a
Sky full of blue

It's been a long, long fall
The ant who would be king
When consequence does it's thing
We all want it like before

Nowhere to go, laid low
Like a dumpster diver, like a
Submarine wreck scraping the bottom deck
Once you've dunked,
You've prayed there is something more

Come up here
We're making our way
To the upside
We're gonna stay on
The upside
We trade our troubles
For a room with a view
Come up here
We're making our way
To the upside
A brand new day on
The upside
The future's brighter than a
Sky full of blue
What's gonna hold us down
Who's gonna hold us down
How's it gonna hold us down
Nothing's gonna hold us

Come on we'll make our way
To the upside
We're here to stay on
The upside
The future's shining like a
Sky full of blue

Come up here
We're making our way
To the upside
We're gonna stay on
The upside
We trade our troubles
For a room with a view
Come up here
We're making our way
To the upside
A brand new day on
The upside
The future's brighter than a
Sky full of blue

Come up here
We're making our way
To the upside
A brand new day on
The upside
The future's brighter than a
Sky full of blue
