Sleep, sand, and dust have made me feel old and paranoid
I need control, I need to glow once again

Designed to fly or maybe just die
My plastic wings
Images of perfection might purify

Long way down
Long way down
Long way down
Long way down

Take me high...

Strap on the wings and push me over and watch me sink
Maybe tonight I'll get it right finally

Hold in my breath and make me forget my everything
I'm in a sky made out of sighs here today

Long way down
Long way down
Long way down
Long way down

Take me higher
Take me higher
Take me higher
Take me high...

Long way down
Long way down
Long way down
Long way down

Take me high...
Take me higher

I need control, I need to glow
I need control, I need to glow

    General Commentthis is a favorite - i think the meaing is pretty obvious. Its about drugs and addition, getting high and crashing afterwards. "Plastic Wings" is a nice metaphor for it - they get you high, but its not real, the wings are plastic. The song ends nicely - "long way down", the crash, then the urge to get up again, even higher...
