Lyrics:

Rungs

If pride truly came before the fall then I'd say that gravity isn't doing it's job
The giants beating their chest remain erect despite the swell within them
Using socialism like it's a bad word while irony drips from their what would Jesus do bracelets
"I earned this" they scream and that's nothing I would take from them
But what took you two steps takes others a million miles so acknowledge there's a difference
For a tree to grow, it requires nitrogen and sun showers
The mighty oaks stand and their shade makes sure no light reaches the bottom
Then they whisper to the foliage below, "you're not trying hard enough"
If I ever become an oak, I want my branches to spread wide and douse the shadows with life

Chorus
I can feel the water rising
As I stand upon this crumbling step
My fingertips can't reach the next one
I'm hoping that it falls away

If it's class warfare to ask for half a chance then I'm sharpening my tongue
My pockets are too shallow to buy the depth I need in a representative
They build promises on the middle class then rest their knees in our backs make sure nothing trickles down
These kids we tell them they have a chance but if you're poor you miss the mark
I guess you should've checked your schedule because you're in the wrong class
And I know I know, your cousins brothers sister in law yeah she came from nothing
But the odds are the same as an anorexic lottery ticket, they're getting slimmer every day
So next time you're pissed off about all these poor wanting a hand out
Count the rungs on that ladder you climbed and realize you started at the top

Chorus
I can feel the water rising
As I stand upon this crumbling step
My fingertips can't reach the next one
I'm hoping that it falls away

Weird guitar solo

Chorus
I can feel the water rising
As I stand upon this crumbling step
My fingertips can't reach the next one
I'm hoping that it falls away
[Exit]
