"Ceiling" as written by and Ricky Young Taylor Burns....
Wood burning up on the hill
Seen a drawer full of pills
And it's quiet like snow through the trees
Well I did what I did and I didn't mean anything
Where you come from and where you go
Who you talk to and who you know
And you're lying in fields of green

Well I did what I did and I didn't mean anything
The sun rise, the drive, the morning
The smoke stacks, the bold hats, still learning
And I don't know how I got this far down with the ceiling
And I don't know how I got this far down with the ceiling

Oh, her eyes are wide open right out of her head
Yeah, she's clear of a crown that she cut down for me
Well, I did what I did and I'd do it all over again
I remember everything
Little girl learning to sing because she's crying all over me
But I did what I did and I didn't mean anything

The sun rise, the drive, the morning
The smoke stacks, the bold hats, still learning
And I don't know how I got this far down with the ceiling
And I don't know how I got this far down with the ceiling

Oh, her eyes are wide open right out of her head
Yeah, she's clear of a crown that she cut down for me
Well, I did what I did and I'd do it all over again

We, we should be easy
We should be easy
We should be
We, we should be easy
We should be easy
We should be
We, we should be easy
We should be easy
We should be
We, we should be easy
We should be easy
We should be
We, we should be easy
We should be easy
We should be
Sometime, oh yeah
A little bit sometime.

    General CommentI don't think the lyrics is "Yeah, she's clear of a crown that she cut down for me." Rather, it seems to be "...and she's cleared of a crime that she did not commit." This not only sounds right, it also fits with the theme of the video and the overall feeling of the song.

    General CommentI came across this song through filtermagazine.com/ and got trapped with the final chorus

    we should be easy...

    which may imply that the whole song is about how we can complicate ourselves sometimes instead of taking the easy path/solution...

    I have problems awith English (I am not native) and "ceiling" in that context puzzles me...

    Anyhow the song is uplifting while the video a bit disturbing...
