Lyrics

'Till you're on Top

Written By: Logan Rudrum

Another year in this career has taken its toll on my innocence, turned arrogance, a feeling that's so strong. Just when I think I'm gonna sink I remember the words so shine the spotlight to the end of the verse. He said: "Don't stop, 'till you're on top. All those loved ones, you've got to let them go. Now don't stop, it's your last shot. A touch of make-up, and you can steal the show."
Are chairs with names and doors with stars worth all of the hatred? To slit the throats of those opposed to our hands in pavement? With every scene: a victory; each credit: clap of the hand. We're oh so thankful for the words that he said.

Rock steady, don't just lay there, it's never luck you're all they want and more. With time, well, you won't remember.

This script never works, even though it's rehearsed, and with every line inside me dies. Turns out I should have said "no" this glitter has lost all its glow. I'm lost between what I love and all those other, pushed and shoved. So don't stop 'till you're on top. All those loved ones, you've got to let them go. Now don't stop. It's you're last shot. A touch of make-up and you can steal the show.
And oh how the care when they're gasping for air. A melody. "For me?" Oh yes you'll see. So before I go on swear to be smarter be stronger than me. For me.

Rock steady, don't just lay there, it's never luck you're all they want and more. With time, well, you won't remember.

Now when your lights dim don't lose your hope. And don't put all your trust in those velvet ropes. Don't fall for lies see through the smoke. With lines more convincing than your own...

Rock steady, don't just lay there, it's never luck you're all they want and more. With time, well, you won't remember.
