All I see it's not for me
What I want you have not got
Tried to use the things you sold me
No matter what the cost.
Tried to go the way you told me
But each time I got lost.
The stairs didn't lead me anywhere.

I'm taking the fire escape
Up to the roof
Don't care if it's not that way
You'll find the truth
Time to make this climb
To rise above

This room and all of you
Who say I should do like you would
Tried to live the live you sold me
No matter what the cost
Tried to walk the way you told me
But each time I got lost

I'm taking the fire escape
Up to the roof
Don't care if it's not the way
You'll find the truth
And when I get up that high
I don't know what I'll find
But I'd rather look at the sky than wonder why
I let you take my time
Time to make this climb
To rise above

I'm taking the fire escape
Up to the roof
Don't care if it's not the way
You'll find the truth
And when I get up that high
I don't know what I'll find
But I'd rather look at the sky
Than wonder why I let you take my time
Time to make this climb
To rise above
Time to make this climb
To rise above

    General CommentThis song is about independence. The singer refuses to conform to the expectations of society. Rather than doing what everyone says is the only way, she finds her own freedom.
