Lyrics

Down on Philip's escalator
What a thrilling ride
It's a feeling
That you've never had before inside

You can set your mind and body
Moving all around
But your feet aren't moving
'Cause you haven't left the ground

Down on Philip's escalator
Goodbye, world, I'll catch you later on
For my consciousness is gone
And reality is wrong

Down on Philip's escalator
Top floor, if you please
Ride as much as Philip rides
And see what Philip sees

If your heart won't let you go
And take a ride with Phil
(?) and step aside
There's plenty more who will

Down on Philip's escalator
Goodbye, world, I'll catch you later on
For my consciousness is gone
And reality is wrong

So please come along
But take care
Beware for the silver, shining steps to (dwell?)

Elevators, escalators, take you up and bring you down
Bah bah bah bah bah bah
Bah bah bah bah bah bah
Bah bah bah bah bah bah
Bah bah bah bah bah bah

Down on Philip's escalator
Now it's time to go
Thank you and we hope that you
All enjoyed our show

Down on Philip's escalator
Goodbye, world, I'll catch you later on
For my consciousness is gone
And reality is wrong
