Ladder Blues

No ladder left to climb
I’m giving up this time
It’s a sad, sad day
Don’t feel that way
Feels alright

Sweet Jesus, where you been?
I’m tired, sick with sin
It’s a dark, dark day
Don’t look that way
Looks too bright

Everyone believes it, must be true
Nobody believes it, that’s true too

Try, fail, try again
Fail better, never win
It’s a heavy day
Don’t feel that way
Feels too light

Gonna build a fire with the broken rungs
Gonna stop listening to the men with cloven tongues

No ladder left to climb
I’m giving up this time
