Vic Chesnutt – 2nd Floor lyrics

If you want to see two circling swans
On the surface of the sewer pond
Don't crane your neck where you are
You've got to climb to the second floor

And I wouldn't've even mentioned it
If you didn't seem so tuned into it

You've got to climb the second floor
Short chore great reward

I'm in the east but I'm looking west
When I'm facing north
The big huge valley's to my left
Horizon holds three great slag heaps
Piercing the sky like the Pyramids at Giza

I wouldn't make so much of it
If I didn't know you truly loved it

You've got to climb the second floor
Short chore great reward
