Jump to live

Jump off this roof
into the heaven's of unknown
flying to the stars
through a oily watery well
don't stand on the edge
the volcano will swallow you whole
alive we are in these scary times
alive to be forgotten
everyone knows, some people know, no one knows
a face in a portriat
the air in our lungs
a shooting star in the sky
soon to be forgotten
sleeping through life in an open casket
sleeping to take you away
don't be scared for that day to come
but for the journey that leads you there
