LOOKING UP AT ME LOOKING DOWN

 

Insurmountable
I’m looking up at me looking down
If I should fall, break a bone
You’ll tell me that you told me so
And if I try to climb
To aspire to be my future self
If I don’t make it, you’ll just laugh
In the kindest way you ever have
Still it’ll cut like glass

Mercy
Father have mercy
Could I get what I need please
‘Cause I need some sort of education
But I’d prefer edification
Mercy
Father have mercy
Mercy, mercy, mercy

Insurmountable
I’m looking ’round trying to figure out how
How, how, how
How to get to where you earned
But cut out all of that hard work
And if I dare to venture
Get lost somewhere in Australia
If I should fail, you’ll tell me I
Didn’t try as hard as I have might
The will and the drive
It’s nice
But it hurts me inside

Mercy
Father have mercy
Could I get what I need please
‘Cause I need some sort of education
But I’d prefer edification
Mercy
Father have mercy
Mercy, mercy, mercy

Insurmountable
I’m looking in as I’m meddling
With my 60-year-old wine
Trying to get drunk before my time
And if I stay on the line
Let You pull me up with all Your might
If the line frays and breaks
You’ll tell me I should have a little faith
Well, don’t get cute
‘Cause it could be my fate

Mercy
Father have mercy
Could I get what I need please
‘Cause I need some sort of education
But I’d prefer edification
Mercy
Father have mercy
Mercy, mercy, mercy
