In an airplane, I was flying.
Just a flight attendant guy.
I can be clumsy, and I stumbled
out the door, into the sky.

Now I am falling through the air.
Wind and regret flow through my hair.
All I can do right now is stare down at the ocean.

Suddenly, there's a ring in my cell phone. I pick it up.
It's the Angel of Death, and he says "Wazzup?"
I say, "What is it this time?"
And he's like "Well, hello, goodbye, I'll see you in Hell."

He can be like that sometimes, he's such a nut.
So I snicker and say, "I'd love to, but
gravity's calling, I've got some falling to do."

I'm in a state of shock, but it's something new.
I guess it all depends on your point of view. It's true.

This is boring... Yes, I'm falling,
but it's taking quite a while.
My destination is impending.
Might as well go out in style.

I put my arms out to the skies,
whistle a tune and close my eyes,
trying to briefly realize perpetual motion.

Suddenly, giant tentacles rise from the open sea,
and with total precision they lasso me.
It's a monstrous squid and he saved my life,
but I am too freaked out to be nice.

So I tell him the truth, that I'd rather fall.
No offense but at least it's predictable.
Gotta stop stalling, I've got some falling to do.

I'm probably gonna die, but it's something new.
I guess it all depends on your point of view. It's true

    General CommentI think lemon demon is a genius. I mean, they have songs with deeper meanings, but this song is so cool. I like it because it shows how a point of view can show your character. I mean if lemon demon got beated up on the street, he wouldn't say "danm", just "screw this, at least it's something new." People like them rock. They never complain. This song is so positive to me ^_^

    General CommentI think this song is about keeping your head up when things are looking down and looking at the "bright side" of things, and then they will sort themselves out (sometimes maybe miraculously ie a squid)

    Lemon Demon uses the story as a way to show that things may look worse than ever (ie falling out of a plane, there's no chance you'll survive), yet if you keep your head up you'll pull through in any situation!

    General CommentI've Got Some Falling To Do is talking about coming upon a bad situation. You are just going by and you slip and then start to fall out of place. You can flip out or you can just deal with the situation and try and adapt to it. The angel of death symbolizes how your impending fate hangs over your head. But since it is already inevidable anyway you have no need to worry about it. Eventually you come to terms with it and realize that you don't need to be saved and you'll be fine and you can deal with the consequences.

    General CommentI think it's just a funny story of a guy who got landed in a bad situation, tried to make the most of it and eventually made peace with it.

    When help arrives, he's too unaccustomed to life giving him a break once in a while, that he actively refuses rescue. Pretty funny.
