Towards the summit the only direction for me
The rugged country, my passage untamed
My advisor imbued me to go this way
To turn around would be this manís last day

I choose the incline
For no real reason
except to prove to you I deserve regard
to make it to my peaks unscarred

I chose up and you choose down
Surrender the respect that I deserve
I did it mine and you did it yours
And now were on level ground

you left me for the dorm
Despite all their advice I choose the norm
My Respect was valued higher
did you earn esteem
Self esteem is all we have
The ovation of the crowd for neither of us
The ovation of a few more worthy

I chose up and you choose down
Surrender the respect that I deserve
I did it mine and you did it yours
And now were on level ground

My soul belongs to this weathered road
Was it a smooth trip down my mountain
The influenced choices vetoed
So effortless was this your vision
Footsteps I left behind donít trip and fall
Itís a long ways down
As you now know

I chose up and you choose down
Surrender the respect that I deserve
I did it mine and you did it yours
And now were on level ground

Everest I had to climb
And you toke a safe leap off the side
Fast it fell for you
A mighty decent
Slow and steady was I
Haggard, relentless look in my eye
For you It was erudition
For me the prior tradition

And here we are on level ground

i found some of the imagery and metaphors to be sort of childish, for instance the uphill/down one. it didnt seem to flow correctly, nor fit into the song very well. you did a pretty good job at staying on topic, but there was nothing there to really grab my attention and hook me. ill still stand by my previous score.

i agree it was all on topic kinda of a overused subject but who cares but idk i kinda ran outa words lol yal can help me out if you want to i really dont mind cya

Well i liked the first verse. I thought, damn, i like the idea of using "my advisor" I thought it was in a spiritual sense, or some metaphor. but i as i read on and you mention "my parents" and "you chose the dorm". it just turned me away. in the second verse you make a reference but there is no earlier mention of who it belongs to. "dispute all there(their) advice...." Unless youre talking about the dorm. but that still doesnt work well. The ovation lines were cool , but dont tie into anything else. graduation applause? the two of you didnt graduate? however the esteem lines were overuse for the word in my opinion , because it didnt use the double use to make a catchy point.
I think there could be something brewing , but right now it doesnt work for me. But its not terrible. 6/10
