Bright Eyes Ladder Song

No one knows where the ladder goes

You’re going to lose what you love the most

You’re not alone in anything

You’re not unique in dying

Feel estranged every now and then

Fall asleep reading science fiction

I want to fly in your silver ship

Let Jesus hang and Buddha sit

It’s on now

The days are long now

The ups and the sundowns

And a twisting mind

If I got to go first

I’ll do it on my terms

I’m tired of traitors always changing sides

They were friends of mine

Don’t hang around as the promise breaks

You’ll be there when the next one’s made

Kiss the feet of a charlatan

Some imagined freedom

All the rest is predictable

You can say you’re the first to know

Bought a mantra to concentrate

Car alarm or hissing snake

I know now

Oh, it’s going to turn now

You got to calm down

Or I’ll lose my place

Got to get to the center

Got to get to the concert

Run off with a dancer

Going to celebrate

Welcome the new age

Covered in warrior paint

Lights from the jungle to the sky

See now, a star’s born

Looks just like a blood orange

Don’t it just make you want to cry

Precious friend of mine?

Well, I know when it’s finally done

This whole life’s a hallucination

You’re not alone in anything

You’re not alone in trying

To be
