Way Above The Clouds - Poem by Kris Whelan (1971)

I’ve got a clearer destination way above the clouds
And I don’t need these people pushing through the crowds
Aint it funny how true love only comes in pairs
And you can shout it from the rooftops only if you climb the stairs
Why should I go down when the only way is up?
Well I don’t want no more to drink from your poison cup
You can save it for your future or spend it all tonight
You can lay and take their crap or fight with all your might
It’s a clear perspective I’ve got from way up here
The weather is for changing, it’s not the height that gives me fear
I’m moving across the water close to the speed of sound
My wings are beating hard for the freedom that I’ve found
We’ve gotta break the silence if we carry on the flame
We’ve gotta break the rules sometimes to carry on the game
I’m sick and tired of standing, waiting by the side
So I’m way above the clouds beating time and tide
I wasn’t born a fool to be beaten up and bruised
And I’m no longer gonna stand in line just to be refused
You can beg forgiveness from whatever you believe
And go crawling on your hands and knees for whatever you receive
I’ll say a prayer for you if that makes you feel ok
But believe me when I tell you it’s not the only way
I can dropp you at the gates of hell if you disapprove
But way above these clouds is how I like to move
