lyrics

The Steeplejack

Like a cartoon horse in a children’s book just plodding along
(Underneath the hot sun)
The promise is the stick and the carrot is the song
(We got ourselves a live one)
I believe in a little bit...
Home-baked and elevated but not for long
(Sorry sugar—he’s spun)

The steeplejack can only climb so high
Before he gotta push the bricks aside
He says he ain't afraid of heights he lies
It's all he thinks about-- all day
And all night long…

Heads up in a little bit see the gloves will come off
(He’s fightin' against the big-time)
Can’t spit for spite without that hacking cough
(He's righting every slant rhyme)
I believe in a little bit...
Lost interest feeding from the bottomless trough
(Look who’s moved the goal lines)


I believe in a little bit…
