lyrics

From the penthouse to the pavement,
The boulevard to the backstreet,
It's a long, long way to fall,
You can only hope you land on your feet.

When all your stocks have plummeted
And all you ever had is gone,
Everything that was valuable
Ain't worth the paper it's printed on.

The road is strewn with obstacles,
Pitfalls and potholes.
There comes a time when you have to pay
For every single thing you stole.

From the champagne to the sediment,
From the caviar to the stew,
You watched the others stumble
And you never thought it would happen to you.

From the bungalow to the barrio,
The upper deck to the underpass,
You find out where you've ended up
When the dust settles in the aftermath.

The road is strewn with hindrances,
Potholes and pitfalls,
The higher up that you can climb,
The further you can fall.

The road is strewn with obstacles,
Pitfalls and potholes.
There comes a time when you have to pay
For every single thing you stole.

The road is strewn with hindrances,
Potholes and pitfalls,
The higher up that you can climb,
The further you can fall.
