You ascend the stairs
One step at a time
For each step you make
You receive a dime

Blinded by greed
You skip a few
The more you get
The faster you flew

The higher you get
The smaller the foothold
You see the warnings
But still you ignored

You made one misstep
And started to fall
At last you've awoken
From your drunken stupor

Your bones broken
You've lost what you made
You never listened
To the things they've said

So now you've learned
To take it slow
Cause the slower you are
The farther you go
