I jumped off the top of a fifty story building
I was dead before I hit the ground
The air between the top and the bottom was serene
For awhile the world was pretty and
It didn't make a sound
I jumped off the top of a mammoth office building
I was dead before I climbed the stairs
A walk that took forever and at once no time at all
A moment in the life of an uneven legged chair
I jumped off the top of a concrete ravine
I was dead before I parked the car
An empty pile of flesh living paycheck to paycheck
A shame the next one always seemed too far
I woke up safe inside my bed, breaking into song
I woke up, I remembered
I let go of the tower made of money blood and glass
I was dead before I learned to breathe
The colors ran together and
They never looked quite right
I always hid my face, but wore my anger on my sleeve
I woke up safe inside my bed, breaking into song
I woke up, I remembered falling
