If I Should Fall Lyrics

I look straight in the window, try not to look below
Pretend I'm not up here, I try counting sheep
But the sheep seem to shower off this office tower
It's 9.8 straight down, I can't stop my knees

I wish I could fly
From this building, from this wall
And if I should try
Would you catch me, if I fall?

My hands clench the squeegee, my secular rosary
Hang on to your wallet, hang on to your rings
Can't look below me, or something will throw me
I curse at the windstorms that October brings

I look straight in the boardroom, a modern Pharaoh's tomb
I'd gladly swap places, if they care to dive
They're lined up at the window, peer down into limbo
They're frightened of jumping, in case they survive

I wish I could step from this scaffold
Onto soft green pastures, shopping malls, or bed
With my family, and my pastor, and my grandfather who's dead

Look straight in the mirror, watch it come clearer
I look like a painter, behind all the grease
But painting's creating, and I'm just erasing
A crystal-clear canvas is my masterpiece

I wish I could fly
From this building, from this wall
And if I should try
Would you catch me, if I fall?
When I fall?
