"As long as I fall" as written by and Andreas Deris....
I close my eyes so I don't have to see
I shut my heart and tell my mind to run and flee
Once I was flying, flying, flying high
I touched the sky

As long as I fall, I don't hit the ground
As long as I fall, I'm safe and sound
As long as I fly, I sure cannot die
I don't need to hear the call as long as I fall

Would I have time to change reality
I would become the man, the man I could never be
Oh, my God please tell me how to break free
Once I was flying, flying, flying high
I touched the sky

As long as I fall, I don't hit the ground
As long as I fall, I'm safe and sound
As long as I fly, I sure cannot die
I don't need to hear the call as long as I fall
As long as I fall

As long as I fall, I got no reason to care
As long as I fall, I got no problem to bear
I don't need to bother what I did or did not
I would cry out in pain but

As long as I fall, I don't hit the ground
As long as I fall, I'm safe and sound
I don't need to face no blame or disgrace
No reason to change at all

As long as I fall, I don't hit the ground
As long as I fall, I'm safe and sound
As long as I fly, I sure cannot die
I don't need to hear the call as long as I fall

    General CommentFor me this have a great message, cuase still here falling nothing esle matters, nothing can kill us or hurt us cause we're already descending
    And think that some people finds themselves while in moment they were falling makes thinking this music

    My InterpretationIt sounds to me like the singer is talking about pessimism. Like... as long as he sucks at everything, he won't be upset if things go wrong.

    Either that or he's talking about getting high off drugs and how it seems to make his problems go away. Iunno.

    General Commenti think it's a more critcal song about civil courage or the lack thereof. the verses are about the guy "closing his eyes", not doing anything to prevent bad things to happen. in the chorus he tells that he doesn't care about the bad things going on as long as he feels save.
    the metaphor of falling simply says that he knows that he could go under as well, that noone will help him if he gets in a bad situation, but as long as he doesn't "hit the ground" there's no need to take care.
