lyrics

See the steel door sliding, sliding shut
This metal box will lift me, lift me up
I need to see the view from up above
I need to see what life is like on top
Acceleration shifting, shifting
My weight shifts, I swallow, yawn and pop
I need to see the view from up above
I need to know what life is like on top

As the cables lift me up
I take the time to fill my cup
Nineteen stories up from the ground
No one can see me right now
As the cables lift me up
I take the time to fill my cup
Nineteen stories up in the air
No one can see, no one cares
The cables lift me up
Fill my cup
No one can see my face right now

I can feel my body rise and fall
My God, I'm sorry I never called
And all the promises unkept
But I'm begging you please don't leave me yet
You're all I have left

I swear, I swear I'm trying
But I fear, my dear, we're dying
I'm just so tired of flying,
So I fear my dear, we're dying

I hear the cables snap
I'm going down, I'm never coming back
But my one regret is the time I spent
The windows crack,
I feel the cold running up my back
The one thing I regret is the money I spent

My body starts lifting,
My life starts flashing by
Now that I'm weightless
I can finally close my eyes
