Won't you look up at the skyline

At the mortar, block, and glass

And check out the reflections in my eyes

See they always used to be there

Even when this was all was grass

And I sang and danced about a high-rise



And you were laughing at my helmet hat

Laughing at my torch



Go ahead and laugh all you want

I got my philosophy

And I trust it like the ground

That's why my philosophy

Keeps me walking when I'm falling down



I see that there is evil

And I know that there is good

And the in-betweens I never understood

Would you look at me I'm crazy

But I get the job done

I'm crazy but I get the job done



So go ahead and laugh all you want

I got my philosophy

And I trust it like the ground

That's why my philosophy

Keeps me walking when I'm falling down



I pushed you cause I loved you guys

I didn't realize

That you weren't having fun

And I dragged you up the stairs

And I told you to fly

You were flapping your arms

Then you started to cry, you were too high



Now you take this all for granted

You take the mortar, block, and glass

And you forget the speech that moved the stone

And it's really not that you can't see

The forest from the trees

You just never been out in the woods alone



So you can laugh all you want to

But I've got my philosophy

And I love you you're my friend

But you got no philosophy

Now it's time for this song to end
