He walks into the light,
In a vain attempt to clear his mind,
But the clouds are getting darker by the hour he starts to climb,
So the people gather round,
the camera’s are on the ground,
The flashes leave him blinded and he’s scared of looking down
. . .
So who can answer for the youth in question
What would it take to learn a simple lesson
They play with fire but they don’t get burnt
No they don’t get burnt this time
. . .
All he needed was a hand,
In your time of need you’d understand,
But for now you are responsible - is that what you had planned
Just to be part of the crowd,
goading him to hit the ground,
As he reaches out to touch the sky, you share around
. . .
Step in to the unknown, the air is yours to breathe
Down here the blood runs cold, never get to sleep,
Step in to the unknown, buried in the deep,
Down here the blood runs cold and this is yours to keep
