"Suicide?" as written by Joel Cadbury, James Mcdonald, Brett Shaw, James Lavelle and Richard File....
I woke up to a feeling, it was cold by my side
You had gone with the sunrise, leaving tears in my eyes
I got up with a feeling of an emptiness inside
To the noise of the sidewalk and the silence of my mind

Well I walked out this morning, down a street with no name
To a club called "The Loser", like a dog that's gone lame
Took the club elevator to the floor with a view
I took out life subscription - it's the only one they do

I stepped out on the guard rail, saw the crowds slowly part
Heard a voice shouting "Don't jump, please for God's sake let me move my car!"
Felt a hand on my shoulder, heard a voice cry "Just in time!"
Felt the quick push, felt the air rush
Felt the sidewalk, fell in line

    General CommentThis is a pretty much unheard of prog rock band, but I've often wondered if these kind of bands were, in a way, precursors of the dark music of the late 70s/early 80s (Joy Division, The Cure etc). Certainly the latter took the mantle of the thinking man's alternative music.

    As for this song, I think it's kind of sad, and I like the kind of ambiguous ending - does it take a push to make someone actually kill themselves, in the end? Or is there some deeper meaning to this song?

    Song MeaningI always thought the last line was "fell in lime".

    Does the line "just in time" mean "I am just in time to save you" or "I am just in time to push you over the edge"?
