No matter how high we go, the ground still waits.

Time to come down,
set my feet back on the ground.
There's only so high,
I want to fly.
I flew up high enough,
to make myself tough.

While I was soaring,
there was quite a bit I was ignoring.
Never do I want to be so high,
where truth and common
sense does not apply.
Where love and respect,
become something I reject.
Where arrogancy and self-sublime,
become a felony crime.

Now I know why,
stupids and arrogants fly.
It's super nice to be way up,
even when your mind is corrupt.
Being up flying around,
beats crashing to the ground.
But I can't be a phony flyer,
only a truth admirer.

I guess we all have to come back down to earth once in awhile for a reality check.
