im an elevator man

November 6, 1992

im an elevator man
i go up and down
up and down up and down
but i never move
cause im an elevator man

higher and higher.  lower and lower
i try to speed up, but i only go slower
if i could get off this thing, id try to pick a floor
id try to find my own life. how do i open the door?

is this a living hell, or just a prison cell?
is there more?  is there more?

i dont have any dreams
someone’s stolen all of them
if i dream another dream
it’ll just get stolen again

try and save me.  you’re my only hope
come on baby, throw me a rope

darling don’t look now, but the cable’s wearing thin.
if you cant help me out, then youve got to come in

im an elevator man
goin up and down
because i never move
