Oh baby my pockets are empty and its at your expense
I promised to bring you the moon and you said well fine prove it
My necks tired my back is hurting my arms are dead
Ive been clawing my way up that hill and just when I think Ive made it
You raise it on up the bar is gone
You raise it on up and tell me I'm wrong
You made it all up and I just went along
You raise it on up hell now I'm gone

Oh baby my pantries empty and you're not looking thin
Each person that you devour just keeps you moving
Ive been trying for so long and I'm starting to feel sick
With each step and the closer I get I see your up to your old tricks
Yeah you raise it on up…

I've got fifteen days to choose weather I'll pay the rent
Dirty looks in the mirror is how my time is spent
Before the rains we would throw down our chains
Now your telling me I've changed
That's why you raise it on up…
