lyrics

Situation's going bad
Started looking for a new way to live
Leaving all your friends behind
Now we'll see
Just what they have to give you

It is really such a shame
That their way to play the game
Is to dream
All the things you want to be
All the sights you want to see
Are always out of your reach

In the ever-soul we'll be as one
Our spirits will fly high
We will drift away
Here's to good King James
We shall be ready
Save some room for me
On the ladder

Patching lies with clear stain
Cause you'll never have to touch them up again
Once you've forgotten what you've learned
Maybe things will start to swing your way again

Till then you'll have to wait to out
No other way to bring about your dreams
All the things you want to be
All the sights you want to see
Are only in your mind's reach

In the ever-soul we'll be as one
Our spirits will fly high
We will drift away
Here's to good King James
We shall be ready
Save some room for me
On the ladder

I'm sorry friend
But I seem to find it hard to explain
It's just a thing to face up to
Nothing could possibly cause me more pain

I've got a life to live on
Everyone carries that same rugged cross
But you and I
We know some day that we're gonna fly

Now there seems to be a way
Now nothing's gonna knock you down again
And Brother, if you'll wait for me
Then we will build our fire up again

In the ever-soul we'll be as one
Our spirits will fly high
We will drive away
Here's to good King James
We shall be ready
Save some room for me
On the ladder

In the ever-soul we'll be as one
Our spirits will fly high
We will drive away
Here's to good King James
We shall be ready ...
