Up here sedated in my seat,
Can't wait until i can see my feet
And run away from stupid things i've said
I'll be here a few days from now,
We'll talk about it when i come down
If we make it this time, I'll clean the stain i've bled

Our worlds collide in new beginnings
It's an emergency permission to bail out
So when the heart crash lands,
What memories will survive?
I thank my black box that i'm alive

I feel unlucky today, can't wash the panic off my face
Didn't learn a thing from the last time
I'ts so selfish to be so confused,
Heart beats like rapid fire
So close to the edge but far away in mind

Two days to go until i see you
Looks like we can call the ambulance down there
My head is touching down i've learned to be afraid
I thank my black box that you're the same

    General CommentThis song is about regret. This guy probably left, and thought it was for the better. He is away, somewhere else, as if standing on top of a building. And he trys to make demands and change this in their relationship for the better. But when it all comes down to it, he goes back because he realizes that no change was needed.

    General CommentSounds like tony is in an airplane, sedated in his seat unable to see his feet cuz the seats are so close to eachother. And you can tell because there is always a black box in planes as they help the plane to stay in course (if I remember it right). And a plane can crash land (of course) and so will maybe the heart do too. GREAT song.

    General CommentI always thought this song was about drugs when I was growing up. Maybe not though?
