Up is down and down is up


Oh up is down and down is up,

There is no darkness without light

Not a struggle without a fight

When you are but a newborn pup,

The world is spinning all around

Keeping your feet firm on the ground

Only, you yearn to touch the sun,

You yearn to live, to laugh, to run,

Only, you learn to look away

You learn to give, take half a way

Oh, up is down and down is up

How simple is this small mix-up

Like left is right and right is left,

How have you not ever noticed

That the reason so long practiced

Was truly this world’s greatest theft…
