ascending in the darkness
into the clouds we thrust
removal from the surface
the power you can harness
the prowess one can trust
do we really deserve this

the world below, it spins round
as if detached from earth
it makes a person nervous
and everyone who's skybound
having built up the nerve
in deference to your purpose

all alone way up high
doing what must be done
on your own in these skies
battles can still be won

the rain streaks tell their stories
and stories spread around
to never be outnumbered
but all that's in its glory
across the glistening sound
can be seen unencumbered

for who should hear the calling
the one to make it so
the one we can believe in
to never speak of falling
wherever you should go
where heights can be deceiving

what's it like to look down
hoping nothing's broken
at the heart of this town
gratitude unspoken

painter of translucent clarity
every swipe another dream
made clear for the next to see
the next to see

way up high
