"The Ladder" as written by and Linda Perry....
I've been spending so much time
Growing scared and weary
All the days are falling behind me

Round and round and up and down
My damn head is spinning
It's as if someone else is steering

I have wasted so much time
Holding back just to stay in line
I've been walking down the ladder

Remember when you're young
Remember how much fun
Remember when I was so damn crazy
And nothing ever frightened me

I've been getting sadder
With each step of the ladder

Yesterday will feed tomorrow
So today must brighten
How I wish it was that easy

Oh, just to find how you're growing stronger
While sacrificing everything you wanted
Just because you stopped believing

Somehow I misplaced it all
With [Incomprehensible]
I've been walking down the ladder

Remember when you're young
Remember how much fun
Remember when I was so damn crazy
And nothing ever frightened me

I've been getting sadder
With each step of the ladder

Gee, I'm happy
Dancing amongst the things that scare me
Putting my hands into these pockets I find

And gee, I'm willing
To pass away these guilty feelings
Putting a footstep in this time of my life

Oh, I have wasted so much time
Holding back just to stay in line
I've been walking down the ladder

Remember when you're young
Remember how much fun
Remember when I was so damn crazy

Remember when you're young
Remember how much fun
Remember when I was so damn crazy
Nothing ever frightened me

I've been getting sadder
With each step of the ladder
