“Look Down” Lyrics

I’m holdin’ my hand out
Keepin’ my head high
Tryin’ to get out of mechanical night
When I get to the top of the clear crystal mountain
I’m gonna stay up there as long as I can

And look down
Diggin’ the sights all around
Listenin’ to all of the sounds
I look down
I look down and look in

When my mind sends me reelin’
Breathin’ and feelin’
I remember the time when I tried to come clean
But my interests collided, besides I was misguided
And who do you confide in when you trip on a dream?

And look down
Diggin’ the sights all around
Listenin’ to all of the sounds
I look down
I look down and look in

If you want to come with me
And tell me what you see
Just step in beside me and do what you want
And you may see clearly
Though it sometimes is lonely
To be free is the only possession that counts

I’m holdin’ my hand out
I’m keepin’ my head high
Tryin’ to get out of mechanical night
When I get to the top of the clear crystal mountain
I’m gonna stay up there as long as I can

Diggin’ the sights all around
Listenin’ to all of the sounds
I look down, I look down
I look down, I look down
Look down, look down, look down
Hold on, I’m comin’
