"Rooftop" as written by Kelly Jones, Stuart Cable and Richard Mark Jones....
Standing on a rooftop
Trying to clear my mind
I only came up to look
But now there's such a crowd

I don't feel that bad
Can't help but laugh
And they cry out
They say jump and I say how high?

I feel my body blowing
From every side to side
My mind can't help but knowing...
What it feels like to fly

I don't feel that bad
Can't help but laugh
But they cry out
They say jump and I say how high?
They say jump and I say I might

And they cry out
And they cry out

Say jump and I say I might
Say jump and I say I'll try
Say jump and I say I'll say goodbye
Say jump and I say how high

High, high, fly, fly

I'm just standing on the edge of
Something I should try to hide from
I don't know much but I know something
I need to try and find me a way
Try I always come out fighting
I don't feel I should deny me
Can't help knowing what is down there
Feels like I should fly now for them

I'm fascinated, mis-educated, it's reincarnation
Of my imagination
I'm far away, from here today
It's where I'll stay if I get my way
It's lying awake, that makes me sane
But it makes me sick but I can't change again

    General Commentnot at all, its about a guy who goes to the rooftop on his break for a ciggy or summink, suddenly a crowd gathers thinking hes going to jump, his mind starts wandering and he begins to contemplate the euphoria of the drop to his death....

    General Commenti think its about being on the verge of suicide because everyone seems to hate you so youll just kill yourself as a favor for them, also maybe it means just giving in

    General Commentabout not giving up. he uses jumping off a rooftop as something difficult he has to deal with. and everyone around his telling him to give up, and he's threatening to, even though he doesnt know what to do.
