The 8th track off of Formula 5's second studio album "Edging on Catastrophe".

lyrics

Another day, the morning rain, It’s got me on my feet again,
Get outta bed, and clear your head, don’t pay no mind to what he said
The tip top of the bottom rung, a sad song so seldom sung
Like alveoli of a punctured lung…

Don’t fear the height you gotta climb, when you crossed on over the line
The steps become much easier in time… You’ll find!

The morning came and went the same, close my eyes and I’m stuck within the game
Swallow the pill that makes you ill, No easy way to find a thrill,
You shake your limbs to the common gong, and act ping to a massive pong
Before you know it your face is long…

Just keep your head afloat, above the rising tide,
Let the crashing waves wash away the brine…. And when you find your way
Back to the shore, you might yearn for something more,
But its not in the depths you plunged before…. Before...

The night steals away the day, try-na send this monkey on its way,
The home stretch, is all that’s left, And we've gone too far to second guess,
The third strike is the one that hurts, but keep swinging if a mans on first,
Otherwise your damn heart could burst

Just keep your head afloat, above the rising tide,
Let the crashing waves wash away the brine…. And when you find your way
Back to the shore, you might yearn for something more,
But its not in the depths you plunged before
