Gravity

from Big Noise

Gravity- she said
there's some serious stuff
I mean it, pulls you down
but it kinda, keeps you up
I don't know where
I got this notion
it's like fossilized fear
it's like pre-historic luggage
saying, "I'm still here. I'm still here."

I've got this fear of falling
that I'm trying to overcome
that's why I'm here
at the edge of the top
of this dirty slum
you and I both know
I'd never jump-
who am I trying to kid?
but just imagine
the sensation
if I ever did

contrary- she said
to popular belief
there's another side of me
and it isn't nearly this weak
and I thought my faith
would show itself
and that for once I could be sure
but there's no such thing
as an atheist
on the thirty-second floor
thirty-second floor

Chorus

I don't know where
I got this notion
it's like fossilized fear
it's like prehistoric luggage
saying, "I'm still here.
I'm still here."

(I've got this)
Fear of falling
Fear of falling
gravity there's some serious stuff
you know it pulls you down
but it keeps you up
Fear of falling
Fear of falling
