I'm leaving home
Above the clouds with silver wings
I feel my guts slowly drop as engines sing
My teeth are clenched
'Cause gravity is defied
I'm at a place where I feel dead inside

I know I can take back what I never lend
'Cause all my plan is crushed in the end

Desperate
As I slip the screws out from the seat
I need a way to breathe
The wind
Takes the fusell lodge from the tail piece
I hope it sets me free

With my nose pressed up to the window pane
I lost the lights so now they dance in rain
I breathe out to make a canvis for your name
I can't realise my shoulders carry the blame

I know I can take back what I never lend
'Cause all my plan is crushed in the end

Desperate
As I slip the screws out from the seat
I need a way to breathe
The wind
Takes the fusell lodge from the tail piece
I hope it sets me free

I look below and way the rip
And now the bag is up, I'll be dropping wind

I'm diseased just like my father
He says it comes from my mother
I hope my son does not catch it

Look at what I have to do to survive
I hurt myself just to feel alive
I don't know if I'll make it back home
'Cause I don't know if there's no hope left there
Everyone's looking for someway
I am looking for the one way out
I've been wasting my time
Standing in line
And this is what life is all about

Desperate
As I slip the screws out from the seat
I need a way to breathe
The wind
Takes the fusell lodge from the tail piece
I hope it sets me free

    Song MeaningIn my opinion, the song is about finding who you are and setting yourself free from the past. However, the song sends this message by using references to planes and crashing down, which in turn is referencing the song's name of the unidentified man who hijacked the plane, D.B. Cooper.
