The Lyrics Are Below

 Ben Folds

Philosophy (Live)

 

Recorded live at:

Moore Theater

Seattle, Washington

3/20/02

 

Won't you look up at the skyline

 At the mortar, block, and glass

 And check out the reflections in my eyes

 Y'See they always used to be there

 Even when this was all was grass

 And I sang and danced about a high-rise

  

And you were laughing at my helmet hat

 Laughing at my torch

 

Go ahead you can laugh all you want

 I got my philosophy [keeps my feet on the ground]

 And I trust it like the ground

 That's why my philosophy

 Keeps me walking when I'm falling down

  

I see that there is evil

 And I know that there is good

 yet the in-betweens I never understood

 Won't you look at me I'm crazy

 But I get the job done

 Yeh, I'm crazy but I get the job done

 And I say...

 

 

Go ahead you can laugh all you want

 But I got my philosophy [keeps my feet on the ground]

 And I trust it like the ground

 That's why my philosophy

 Keeps me walking when I'm falling down

 

I pushed you cause I loved you guys

 and didn't realize

 you weren't having fun

 And I dragged you up the stairs

 And I told you to fly

 You were flapping your arms

 Then you started to cry, you were too high.

Too high.

  

Now you take this all for granted

 You take the mortar, block, and glass

 And you forget the speech that moved the stone

But it's really not that you can't see

The forest from the trees

 You never been out in the woods alone

  

So you can laugh all you want to

I've got my philosophy [keeps my feet on the ground]

 And I love you you're my friend

 But you got no philosophy

 And now it's time for the song to end
