lyrics

Standing in the thinnest air, and that too disappears
Still before an empty door, as if it never closes
There's nothing that I would ever do
To try to change your point of view
Some theories one should never test
but doing so does pass the time

Change your name and your address
Choose your brand of cigarette
Adjust I guess, with truth and jest
Masters of tree climbing

Examining the banister that stretches towards the dell
And the beauty of the marble step that guides me into hell
There's nothing that I could ever do,
ass placed high upon the spire
That time it would be better spent
trying hard to pass itself

Address the problem as it is
Paperboy burns Pyramids
Adjust, I jest, with truth I guess
Mastering the art of tree climbing
