Heaven's Ladder

(From Song Reader)

[Written by Beck Hansen]

Look up heaven's ladder
Watch the angels climb down
As if they knew what was the matter
With those down on the ground
Oblivious to danger
Those who walk up on the clouds
They'll tumble down, down on the ground
Where there's nowhere else to go

But only further down into the hole
You could see the whole world
Down below, down below, down below
Where there's nowhere else to go
Just as far as nowhere
And then you're on your own

Anyone who's learned their lesson
And burned their hand
They'll still look at someone else's
Answers if they can
'Cause cheating's better than guessing
When the answer is that there's none to be had
But you'll still wonder if there's nowhere else to go

But only further down into the hole
You could see the whole world
Down below, down below, down below
Where there's nowhere else to go
Just as far as nowhere
And then you're on your own

Now that you know how high the hook and ladder goes
From the highest rung down to the lowest low

And now you know that there's nowhere else to go
But only further down into the hole
You could see the whole world
Down below, down below, down below
Heaven's ladder, it only goes
As far as nowhere and then
You're on your own
