I'm fallilng. 'lept from the highest point,
clouds beneath me, I have time to reflect.
My lady once smiled, she then left me in disgust,
Now I remember of how she wept.
A flock of birds cross my path,
are these like my family and friends of whom I knew
but their memories are just fleeting thoughts
as I raise my arms and towards the rainbow I aptly fuel
Colors of the seasons of which I was acquainted
now an arc to welcome my death.
Where did I go wrong?
Will I ever rest?
I accelerate and fold into a fetal position...
birth, marriage, parenthood.
I lived life as a broken man,
there is little I understood.
The ground is near,
the sounds of the city I begin to hear.
Will God catch me?
Will he hold me dear?
The tree tops are now in my reach,
to the viewers there's no more to teach.
I close my eyes and nod my head,
the ground begins to preach.
