"Daredevil" as written by Robert Baker, Gordon Downie, Johnny Fay, Paul Langlois and Gordon Sinclair....
I can't imagine how you feel and this is how you feel
You say your name like you're no longer convinced
But now they're strapping you in and closing the lid
And they're dropping you in what's done you did
The bell is picking up speed there's water leaking in
That ol' equilibrium just starts to spin and spin
Do you like to be judged or liked
Do you like it inside a barrel
Plunging over the falls
Curious and grim we wrestle at the rim
We wonder all about him and the point of it all

I'll be short and brief
And to the point
The fighting has resumed
In that tone of voice
The plague is exhumed
He said "what I'm going through
Is essentially all true
Made no less amazing
By the fact that it's see-through"
You like to be judged or liked
And you like it inside a barrel
Plunging over the falls
Strong and green and dim it wrestled him like nothin'
Out out out
And into the thrill of em all

And the real wonder of the world is that we don't jump too

    General CommentThis must be a song that praises all the daredevils that have either died or survived trying to go over Niagara falls. Best guess for this meanings: "Do you like it inside a barrel plunging over the falls". These lines are in both stanzas of the song. It might fit, it might not. It's a great song and too bad nobody has commented on it yet.

    General CommentTrue, this song is about the daredevils that went over Niagara Falls in barrels. I think the inner meaning is how most people in the world are not risk takers. These daredevils go over the falls purely for the thrill, and most people just don't get it. The last line, "the real wonder of the world is that we don't jump too", I think is pretty self-explanatory - most of us aren't willing to take risks because we are afraid of the outcome. That's more of a wonder than Niagara Falls

    General CommentGood explanation, IvoKent, I couldn't have said it better meself.

    I'd just like to emphasize one of my favourite clever lyrics from the song: "I'll be short and brief
    and to the point." That wasn't short/brief/to the point at all! ROFLCAKERZOMG
