Flying high and falling down

i catch myself
dreaming like i'm
flying high,
too high
like the guy
who works 
at the hedge fund
and own the entire top floor
of the luxury highrise
and when his scum corporate
goes belly-up
he jumps from the window
straight to the boulevard
that's when i wake up
'cause this guy
doesn't need a doctor
or an ambulance
all he needs
is a coffin
a black limo
two funeral workers
and a burial ground...

The other guy
who lives at the housing projects
and after a couple beers
falls from a couple of stairs
gets up
and keeps going
with just a few bruises on his butt
nothing to lose
'cause he has nothing...

That's life
what goes high
tends to fall and die
what goes down
falls and gets up...
