Ladder Up

Where is life leading us?

Ladder up!

Where ya wanna go?

Step, step, step.

Are you ready?

Let's go on up.

Everybody's climbing.

They're all doing it.

The ones higher up.

No ifs, ands, or buts...

Just go!

Step, step, step.

Heading up.

It's the only way to go.

Straight on up.

One level at a time.

Don't skip a rung.

Keep up your pace.

One foot after the next.

Up, up, up.

These rungs seem...

Kind of weak.

That's what they all say.

Wish it was made of...

Something stronger.

Oh, well, too bad.

Just keep stepping.

No turning back.

No turning back.

Feeling a burn.

In my legs.

Keep on stepping.

Where does this lead?

Does anyone know?

Seems purely crazy.

Can't see anyone.

Following behind me.

Is that a sign?

Just keeping going.

Keep trusting.

It'll all be worth it.

Step, step, step.

Sure wish I could see.

The end of this...
