"The Art of Falling" as written by and Greg Holden....
Lost, confused, unseen and used
Dangerously fighting for nothing to lose
My progress is calling, its noticed I'm falling
It's time for a change, it's time for a move

And I know that its frightening
But its also exciting
Im taking a risk
That I know is worth fighting its

Better to make your mistakes
Than to live without knowing its
Better to fall on your face than to stay on your feet as long as you tried

Sometimes its hard to think my time here has ended
It troubles me to think about who I've offended
But I can't live my life,
In the interest of those,
Holding me back when I'm stood on my toes

But too many times I've been risking my life
Making decisions whilst trying to be nice its

Better to make your mistakes
Than to live without knowing its
Better to fall on your face than to stay on your feet as long as you tried

    General CommentI would agree @learningtobreathe :').
    The song and the video fit flawlessly together.
    The video that is being promoted, the new official video in a way explained how I feel at times.
    (But I am recently Eighteen :p)
    Everyone is walking around with their occupations, and then there's the main character in the video and he doesn't have one and goes on a chase after the girl but mostly to get his own card with his occupation.
    I would also like to reference something that @learningtobreathe said: They said it was about taking risks. Your heart has the most integrity,
    And it's honest within itself.
    Following it IS key.

    General Commentlove the song :)
    i think it's about taking risks and doing what you feel is right instead of caring about what others think and i suppose, doing things that in the long term are for the best.
