How trails of thoughts are lost inside the pause around you. This is the sound of symmetry, between the ground, and gravity.

Standing high, looking down at city lights. In the making of an emergency, I'll turn around and walk away. Did you think I would let you leave? In the making of this emergency, I'll turn around and walk away...

Well 40 stories never looked so fun, learn to fall with me. Take a chance don't forget to jump. Close your eyes and breathe.

I'll eat you alive, if you haven't got the timing right. You will be all mine. I'll hunt you down. Cause I stood and watched you define betrayal. I'm right here...

You tell me what you want but never what you need, give me a sign. Cause I'm not afraid, I'm not afraid to say it's okay. You show me what you want but never what you need, give me a sign. Cause I'm not afraid...

Well 40 stories never looked so fun, learn to fall with me. Take a chance don't forget to jump. Close your eyes and breathe.

I'm right here...through the glass I hide behind, you dream of things you'll never find. You haven't a clue who I am. But I know you all too well....

Standing high, looking down at city lights. In the making of an emergency, I'll turn around and walk away. Did you think I would let you leave? In the making of this emergency, I'll turn around and walk away...

    General CommentThe song is obviously about someone committing suicide. Or rather, contemplating suicide. And the feelings that he is going through up there (on the 40 story building lol). He's on the edge of doing it, but is trying to convince himself not to. It's a really good song lol
