we live on a mountain

right at the top

there's a beautiful view

from the top of the mountain

every morning i walk towards the edge

& throw little things off

like:

carparts,bottles & cutlery

or whatever i find lying around

its become a habit

a way to start the day

i go through all this

before you wake up

so i can feel happier

to be safe up here with you

its early morning

no one is awake

I'm back at my cliff

still throwing things off

i listen to the sounds they make

on their way down

i follow with my eyes till they crash

imagine what my body would sound like

slamming against those rocks

when it lands

will my eyes

be closed or open

i go through all this

before you wake up

so i can feel happier

to be safe up here with you
