View From A Hill

You sit and think that everything is coming up roses

But you can't see the weeds that entangle your feet

You can't see the wood for the trees 'cause the forest is burning

And you say it's the smoke in your eyes that's making you cry



They sold you the view from a hill

They told you that the view from the hill would be

Further than you have ever seen before

They sold you a view from a hill

They sold you a view from a hill



You were a dancer and a chancer, a poet and a fool

To the royalty of mayhem you were breaking all the rules

Your decadence outstanding, your hopes flying high

One eye looking over your shoulder, one eye on the hill

You used to say you were scared of heights - you said you got dizzy

You said you didn't like your feet being too far off the ground

But they said that up there you'd find the air would be clearer

Promised you more space to move and more room to breathe



They sold you a view from a hill

They told you that the view from the hill

Is further than you'd ever seen before



You were holding out forever - thought they'd never turn your mind

Your ideals they were higher than you ever could have climbed

We thought they couldn't buy you - that the price would be too high

That the riches there on offer they just wouldn't turn your eyes

But your conscience it was locked up in the prisons of your schemes

Your judgement it was blinded by your visions and your dreams

Praying and hoping that the view from the hill

Is wider than you've ever seen before

For the view from the hill we held our heads so high (smell the roses)

All the loved ones that you lied to are strangers left behind

All the ones that really mattered well you stood on as you climbed

You were holding out forever for your fathers and your peers

Holding out for everyone that ever walked in here

The edge was inside and you rode it all the way

You were playing the games that you learned yesterday

Hanging around like a fool with a name

You are holding your place for the view, the view from a hill



They sold you the view from a hill

Look it all for a view from a hill

And you find the view's no further than you've seen before



They sold you the view from the hill

And you stood and took it all for the view from a hill

It's simply coming up roses
