Standing on the edge
Watching the cars down below
Don’t know where they are trying to go.
Sigh and loosen your tie
Get the crick out of your neck
Just wanting to forget
Your suit is crumpled
You haven’t slept in days
From the way life plays
Bloodshot eyes and ashen face,
Your suicide note lies on your desk
You will be able to rest
Funny how outside in the noise
The clock still ticks inside your head
Till the moment you are dead.
Its cold up here in the evening,
With no one to see you up so high
Will they even notice if you die?
Those scores of hurrying people,
With their jobs, families and 6 oclock shows
But that’s just how it goes
Take a breath, this is it
A foot in the air
You are almost there
But wait, you cant go on
Fear and shame are in your eyes
Back to lifes lies
Back to nothingness and lonliness
In an empty home
The desperation you call your own
That step you didn’t take
Is going to always pull you down
Screaming silently you still drown.
