i’ve been floating upstream since we parted lyrics – david & the citizens

down from the balcony somebody flew
saying there’s nothing here for me and
i’ve got only myself to blame
for being the way that i am
idiot boy, eating mud
you symbolize so much more than you know
while the rain was soaking everything,
he thought:

why can’t i just finish what i started?
i’ve been floating upstream since we parted

brick by brick
step by step, oh my god
everyone says you’re hanging your head lower now
well it’s a beautiful day
to fade away, to take a stand
and show them all you’re not
just one more common man
and idiot rules/idiots rule
that’s the only thing
that will never change
that will never fade

so why can’t i just finish what i started?

i’ve been floating upstream since we parted
