pilgrim’s prognosis

I’m still holding out
For just one more sip
Before I forget
I’m always wondering how
How I’ll get along
If this goes wrong

There’s nothing here to stop me
From doing it right
turn on the light

It’s not like you forgot me
you’re still there
wondering where

and it’s just a matter of
climbing the ladder up
and going on to the next level
drop the backpack on the ground
listen to the sound
of it crushing the devils

Stepping with you beside me
away from this here
slough of despair

Up ahead hope is always waiting
for me to catch up
open the latch

and it’s just a matter of
climbing the ladder up
and going on to the next level
drop the backpack on the ground
listen to the sound
of it crushing the devils

Coming up on the gates soon
crossing a river
maybe whatever

anticipating what is waiting there
making it clear
more of who’s here

and it’s just a matter of
climbing the ladder up
and going on to the next level
drop the backpack on the ground
listen to the sound
of it crushing the devils

crushing the devils
crushing the devil’s
crushing the devil’s head
