you were built to scratch the sky,
you seemed to rise up overnight,
none of us could turn our eyes away..

taller than the ones before,
a sight to envy or adore,
hanging on to every word you say..
+++ the arc curls back around,
+++ and what goes up comes down,
+++++ leaning tower, when you fall,
+++++ we’ll be watching, one and all,
+++++ every power on which you call fails you now..

I always looked up to you,
I tried to cop your every move,
dreaming of the view from oh, so high..
+++ the arc curls back around,
+++ when what went up comes down,
+++ we all know where we’re bound,
+++++ leaning tower, when you fall,
+++++ we’ll be watching, one and all,
+++++ every power on which you call fails you now,
+++++ in my hour, let me drift,
+++++ I’ll land softer than you did,
+++++ a final mercy on my lips,
+++++ breathing out.. breathing out.. breathing out…
