Jon Day / Exhibit B

Cantilever

Lyrics by Jon Day

(from Exhibit B)

friends, over here
we're high on the side of a mountain
oh what thrill

and look right across
is another one like us in fact there are many
a ton if you will

to all the people in charge of the
people who are kicking all the people off
would you look down below

you'll never see the river
because the river's in the valley
and, well, all of the clouds are out
and it's time that you go

the cantilever lies across the way
the cantilever wide of trouble's way
the cantilever life shall cross today
an oh

reason stands to
reaveal the lands between mountain tops
cause something is wrong

for a murderous fear
yes, the fear of fear calls necessity
to hurry along

the cantilever lies across the way
the cantilever wide of trouble's way
the cantilever life shall cross today
an oh

mighty!
I wish I was mighty!
you wish you were mighty!
and we're wishing...

yes, we are fans of fantasy
to think we know life would be
in this underguned fight

from the bucking chains up a jacking hand
to beseeching paws of a slaving man
we're chugging along
because it feels alright

the cantilever lies across the way
the cantilever wide of trouble's way
the cantilever life shall cross today
an oh

when the clouds start clearing
and the sun flies high
with the valleys showing
will rivers start flowing
then the current shall rise

oh, the clouds are a clearing
mmm, the sun is high
and the people have spoken
and the bridges they have broken
and we're saved from our cantilever lives
yes we're saved from our cantilever lives
yes we're saved from our cantilever lives
