Always Ascending Lyrics

[Repeated throughout intro]
Put your ladder down
Put your ladder down
Put your ladder down
Put your ladder down
Put your ladder down
Don't be concerned
It's just the way that gravity works round here
All slowly rising

    'Always Ascending' is the way existence works. Don't be afraid of it. Let go. Fate can be entertainment. Wake up. If you haven't been awake, you will feel dusty and thirsty. Stale and dried out. Water is nourishing, but also formless. And nothing is ever going to resolve. If you think that you are going to transcend this existence, you've been misled. So just accept it and fly with it. Put the ladder down. A ladder is like getting high. You think that you are ascending, but it is artificial, so put the ladder away and ascend without it. Don't try to control it. And don't be afraid. It is about living life fully and fearlessly without expectation. Great song.
