Up On The Ladder
I'm stuck in the tardis 
trapped in hyper space 
one minute, ?? 
the next minute, I'm in a craze 

all the right moves and in the right places 
watch me dance, I'm a puppet 
you can almost see the strings 

give me an answer 
give me a line 
I've been climbing up this ladder 
I've been wasting my time 

up on the ladder 
it's my time to escape 

up on the ladder 
away from your mistake 

up on the ladder 
to call out your name 

up on the ladder 
you're all the fucking same 

oh, you let the people down 
you let the people down 
you let the people down 

oh, you let the people down 
you let the people down 
you let the people down
