A couple hundred steps to the end of the hike
Another hundred miles in a van on a turnpike
Busybodies look into the future to find
They're still a little bit behind

They fall down in the pitch-black night
Steady ground fading from their sight
A disappointed town in a country that's turning out the lights
Working hard to feel alright

Lately the path is going only uphill
Maybe the best approach is just standing still
Some of those Eastern guys don't need a reward
They sit around a lot but never look bored

A shiny set of bootstraps to be pulled up
Rags-to-riches don't come true begging in a cup
Driven people driven to the edge of their minds
They're still a little bit behind

They fall down in the pitch-black night
Steady ground fading from their sight
A disenchanted frown in a picture that's hardly black and white
In the early morning light
