Long Way Up

from Progress Bar by Adam Sakellarides

lyrics

I'm battered I'm bloody
I'm injured I studied

Each procedure and each tactic
But things were flying things were frantic

I'd taken I'd rallied
Misspoken Miscarried

Rose up in the blink of an eye
The crowd was screaming so was I

It's a long way up
But it's never too far to climb
It's a long way up
I'm rising right into my prime

Outspoken and headstrong
I just can't wait too long

To right the wrong And wrong The Right
I just can't take decisions lightly

It's a long way up
But it's never too far to climb
It's a long way up
I'm rising right into my prime

I can see headlines
They can see hairlines
I can see foul play
But oh no, it won't get away
this time

I'm gathered I'm composed
I spit shined my windows

door-to-door I give you time
I give you reason, give you rhyme

It's a long way up
But it's never too far to climb
It's a long way up
I'm rising right into my prime
