"First Floor People" as written by and Brian Leseny Fennell....
First floor people
I'll take my place among the throngs
Everyone reading books on how not to fall

Some may say, the world looks
The same through red eyes, no way
Covered in dirt off the floor, I'm seeing straight

Don't be scared if you know
Help me to explain myself

Who am I to fool now if you're gone, you're gone
If I am found below the ground
I'm searching, desperate

Prepared people, take your places on deck
I'm a lost boy with no one to tell me I am safe
Overarching rules have told me not to think about

Who am I to fool now if you're gone, you're gone
If I am found below the ground
I'm searching, desperate

This hole is deeper by the hour
My hands are bleeding I spin around, you're nowhere
I'll throw away my ugly plans
They're too tired to push me anywhere but down

So who am I to fool now if you're gone, you're gone
If I am found below the ground
I'm searching, desperate

So who am I to fool now if you're gone, you're gone
When I am found below the ground
I'm searching, I'm desperate

    General CommentI believe "first floor people" are those who live on earth, reading "books on how not to fall" and simply going through the monotony of life with no thoughts on what happens after. I guess those on the "second floor" would be those in heaven or the afterlife.
    "This hole is deeper by the hour-my hands are bleeding, I spin around. You're nowhere."
    To me, this lyrics seems like Jesus, taking the cross and being separated from God for that time of death, because he graciously took on our sins. He's suffering for human kind, turns around, and realizes He has to do it alone for human kind.
    How lovely~
