Up on the Ladder

I’m stuck in the tardis
trapped in hyperspace
one minute snake charming
the next in a motorcade

all the right moves and
earn the right percent
watch me dance like a puppet
you can almost see the strings

give me an answer
give me a sign
i’ve been climbing up this ladder
i’ve been wasting my time

so long, so long
so long, so long

up on the ladder
no time to escape
up on the ladder
away for fucking sake

up on the ladder
try to call out your name
up on the ladder
you’re all the fucking same

oh, you let the people down
you let the people down
you let the people down

    give me an answer
    give me a lie

  • starshine4265

    I’m stuck in the T.A.R.D.I.S. Trapped
    in hyperspace One minute snake charming The next in a motorcade

    All the right moves in In the right places Watch me dance, I’m a puppet You can
    almost see the strings

    Give me an answer Give me a line I’ve been climbing up this ladder I’ve been
    wasting my time

    Up on the ladder We’re all tied to a stake Up on the ladder We wait for your
    mistake

    Up on the ladder Try to call out your name Up on the ladder You’re all the
    fucking same
