Climb The Walls

Everyone I talk to says to watch you go and sings you praises.
With all those eggs in just one basket, you've been honey for the asking.
All the company you keep;
All those dreams and little sleep, I love to watch you

Climb the walls, watch the corner.
You may climb the walls, you may watch the corner.

I must confess it feels so sweet
To watch you fight and keep your feet.
You may count yourself so knowing,
Reaping all that you've been sowing.

Climb the walls, so watch the corner;
Climb the walls and watch the corner.

It's the nature of the beast:
If you want the most, you get the least from love.
And I am here today to tell you
That I savor up the edge about my favor.

You climb the walls, I watch the corner;
Climb the walls, watch the corner.

[sax solo]

I was so dirty, now I'm clean,
Blinking like a new machine.
This cutting edge is cutting out,
Cutting you without a doubt.

Climb the walls, watch the corner;
Climb the walls, watch the corner.
You may climb the walls, watch that corner;
You may climb the walls, watch the corner.
You may climb the walls, watch the corner;
You may climb the walls, watch the corner...

muffnote:
In a German interview from the period, John explained that this song was about his ex-management, that is climbing the walls while he continues making music.
