Stairway to Nowhere

There's a stairway It leads upwards To where it goes I don't know I begin walking this winding stairway Where will it take me I give it no thought Does it lead to paradise Is it my way straight to Heaven Only one way to know So it's up i go But the further i walk The higher i go I see no end in sight Is there a final destination What is this madness There's gotta be an end I can't keep walking forever In this pointless direction I feel so alone Walking this path by myself But I don't see or hear Another soul here or there But yet i continue walking I want to see how or when this ends Because much like life itself There's a beginning and an end So like many before me Who've started their own life journeys Like Dante who traveled the three plains Like Jacob climbing his ladder I'll keep going up Moving farthar and higher Till i make it there My journey continues
