Taking the high road is an uphill battle.
Take the high road Not the why road Not the do-or-die road You’re better than this But then how these thoughts start to erode… Now we’re sliding down the cliff Do we ever get enough of this? Not enough is too much And the load's unbalanced while we slip I’m not your doormat daughter not your lamb for slaughter Everybody has to make sacrifices sometimes, well, The path to heaven is paved all the way to hell And If you want something nice Get ready for the uphill battle it’s an uphill battle (battle) Uphill battle Do you hear these bones? How they rattle (are you rattling me?) Rattle, rattle where’s the baby? Baby snakes! Watch your back before They bite you back down They’ll fire you up just to watch you drown It’s an uphill battle (battle) its an uphill battle And you’re upside down Start digging your ditch now and just lay down when the earth stops shaking maybe you’ll be found... Everybody wants to just do what’s best but don't you ever forget: They’re all so much better than you so get used to it. You’re the least of their worries until you’re not around, They’ll always treat you like shit until you start to pound… Take the high road and get up off the ground Better start packing and don’t make a sound If they’re gonna get mad They’re gonna do that now Get away quick before you’re found... They’ll lock you up - committed! I’m not your doormat daughter Spare me the sword and show some honor I’m not your lamb for slaughter Everybody has to make sacrifices sometimes, well, The path to heaven is paved all the way to hell And If you want something nice Get ready for the uphill battle It’s an uphill battle (battle) Uphill battle
