Ford, Robben - Lateral Climb Lyrics




The sun heats up another working day
Coffee, tea, and I'm on my way
Try to beat the traffic
And maybe yesterdays time
Try to make a little progress
In what's lookin' like a lateral climb

Put behind me, my spendthrift ways
And I've made more money than I did in those days
Used to carry a debt of twenty grand
(bankin kind?)
And I've still got nothin'
It's lookin like a lateral climb

Our leader's addicted
To oil and war
Says it's freedom that we're fightin' for
Applause, applause
For bald face white collar crime
And they leave you stranded
Believin' in a lateral climb

The sun heats up another working day
Coffee, tea, and I'm on my way
What once was a dollar
Is lookin' more like a dime
Heads up people
It's nothin' but a lateral climb
A lateral climb

    "Lateral Climb"

    The sun heats up another working day
    Coffee, tea, and I'm on my way
    Try to beat the traffic
    And maybe yesterday's time (*beat yesterday's time = get there faster than the day before)
    Try to make a little progress
    In what's lookin' like a lateral climb

    Put behind me, my spendthrift ways
    And I've made more money than I did in those days
    Used to carry a debt of twenty grand pay-in-kind
    And I've still got nothin'
    It's lookin like a lateral climb

    Our leaders (are) addicted
    To oil and war
    Says it's freedom that we're fightin' for
    Applause, applause
    For bald face white collar crime
    And they leave you stranded
    Believin' in a lateral climb

    The sun heats up another working day
    Coffee, tea, and I'm on my way
    What once was a dollar
    Is lookin' more like a dime (*inflation = money printing by central banks)
    Heads up people
    It's nothin' but a lateral climb
    A lateral climb

    Thanks for your message.But I think that he says "coffee KEYS and Im on my way....." sounds more logical, don´t he?

    Nathan Hoffner

    Yes. you are correct. I missed that correction.
