Up the Down Escalator Lyrics

I'm gazing up at the faces staring blankly at me
I suppose it's just a sign of the times.
They tell me that tomorrow will never arrive
But I've seen it end a million times.
I lost my direction while dodging the flak
Give me a hint or something
If I could freeze time at the flick of a switch
I wouldn't hesitate
No!
There must be something wrong boys.
Obnoxious action, obnoxious results
From teachers who refuse to be taught.
Distorted pictures and dizzy dizzy people
Rush by me at the speed of though.
And sit at their tables and throw us the scraps
For Christs' sake leave us something
Now they can erase us at the flick of a switch
How long will it take
Now!
There must be something wrong boys
They're dragging me down.
Eden, there's no Eden, anyway.
They sit at their tables and throw us the scraps
For Christs' sake leave us something
Now they can erase you at the flick of a switch
How much longer must we wait
Now!
There must be something wrong boys
They're dragging me down
You either swim or you drown. I'm gazing up at the faces staring blankly at me
I suppose it's just a sign of the times.
They tell me that tomorrow will never arrive
But I've seen it end a million times.
I lost my direction while dodging the flak
Give me a hint or something
If I could freeze time at the flick of a switch
I wouldn't hesitate
No!
There must be something wrong boys.
Obnoxious action, obnoxious results
From teachers who refuse to be taught.
Distorted pictures and dizzy dizzy people
Rush by me at the speed of though.
And sit at their tables and throw us the scraps
For Christs' sake leave us something
Now they can erase us at the flick of a switch
How long will it take
Now!
There must be something wrong boys
They're dragging me down.
Eden, there's no Eden, anyway.
They sit at their tables and throw us the scraps
For Christs' sake leave us something
Now they can erase you at the flick of a switch
How much longer must we wait
Now!
There must be something wrong boys
They're dragging me down
You either swim or you drown.
